NORMAN, Okla.  — The President of the University of Oklahoma says fraternity members who participated in a racist chant caught on video are “disgraceful.”

University President David Boren joined students at a rally March 9 on the Norman campus. The Oklahoman newspaper reports that Boren said, “real Sooners are not bigots, real Sooners are not racist.”

Sigma Alpha Epsilon said that an investigation confirmed the contents of an online video showing multiple people chanting a racial slur and indicating blacks would never be admitted to the fraternity. The chant also references lynching.

The national fraternity says it’s “embarrassed” by the “unacceptable and racist” behavior, and was closing the local chapter.

The video was first posted online by a black student group. It wasn’t clear how the video was obtained.
