Apologies, More Fallout After Racist OU Fraternity Video
(CNN) – As fallout grows over racist chants by a University of Oklahoma fraternity, one student seen in the video is apologizing. So are the parents of a second one.
The university cut ties with Sigma Alpha Epsilon after a video surfaced over the weekend showing fraternity members singing a racist song that included a reference to lynching.
Parker Rice, one of two students expelled after appearing in the video, said he is seeking guidance to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
“I am deeply sorry for what I did Saturday night. It was wrong and reckless,” Rice said Tuesday in a statement to The Dallas Morning News.
“I made a horrible mistake by joining into the singing and encouraging others to do the same.”
