racist fraternity

John Greenwood, a student at Cornell University, was arrested Tuesday for leading a racial attack on a Black student, leading to the closing of a frat.

Parker Rice, the SAE frat guy who led a racist rant on video and ruined his life, is apologizing for his behavior. Rice, 19, issued a lengthy apology on Tuesday (March 10), delivered to the media by his father, and his explanation tactic is simple: blame it on the alcohol.

The University of Oklahoma’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon racism scandal is, unfortunately, nothing new: in the long and storied history of fraternities and sororities in American universities, racism is as common as panty raids.
