SAE’s Racist Chant & Colleges As Liberal Re-Education Camps

saelettersShort Post:

Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity members at the University of Oklahoma, after being taped performing a racist chant on a bus that was headed for a formal event, has had two members expelled from the University, 25 students disciplined, and the chapter has been closed on campus.

Now, conservatives say that universities are bastions of liberalism. Really? If so, how can something so intolerant happen at any one of these institutions.

The Left is the side of acceptance and understanding, not hate-speech. But that’s beside the point because colleges are not used to produce liberal voters, en masse.

The real point is that if these beliefs and actions still happen with young, educated people, it is still out there more than we think and may be for a long time. I was hoping, though not believing, that the election of Barack Obama would be the beginning of a post-racial America with at least my generation. But now I see that we have failed as a nation. Do we now have to wait another 50 years for bigots like the ones at SAE to gradually accept equality or die out? Why are we still seeing this in our universities?

But before the SAE chant gets ready to fade in our memory, I wanted you to hear/watch it one more time.

  1. I’m afraid it’s going to be a matter of waiting for the bigots to die, since it is a kind of prejudice more prevalent in older generations. Of course we still have to oppose it whenever possible, but the number of these young miscreants is much smaller than when I was a kid in the 1950s.

    Technology changes quickly. People change very slowly by comparison.

    1. First, thanks for your comment Invisible Mikey. I am so sorry it took me so long to reply to your comment.

      Unfortunately, I agree with you that many in the older generation will die out before having their views ever changed. But we must do our best, and I’m sure you’ll agree, that we must teach the new generations that racism, homophobia, etc., can be nothing but completely unacceptable.

      Thanks, Invisible Mikey.
