University of Oklahoma Expels Two Students Over Racist Song

Oklahoma City, March 12 (RHC)-- In the United States, the University of Oklahoma has expelled two student fraternity members it says led a racist song caught on video.

Members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon are seen on a bus singing a song that includes a racial slur and a vow that no Black people will ever join their group. The school says the two students who allegedly led the song were expelled for creating "a hostile learning environment" and that all those involved "will learn … it is wrong to use words to hurt, threaten and exclude."

Hundreds of students have marched at the school in Oklahoma City in a show of protest against racism.
