Syracuse Fraternity Expelled after Latest Video

Syracuse Fraternity Expelled after Latest Video

The videos - which were made public by The Daily Orange, an independent student newspaper - shows one person encourage another to get down on his knees and recite an oath that includes highly offensive racial slurs against black, Hispanic and Jewish people.

Syracuse University has permanently expelled the campus chapter of the Theta Tau fraternity.

Maldonado states that the pupils were removed from course "out of an abundance of warning" and that substitute course and research arrangements have been created for them. The university will provide another update to the community on Monday, he added.

"We know this issue extends beyond one fraternity and one video", Syverud said, adding that the university has "begun a top-to-bottom review of our entire Greek system". The clip appears to stem from the same event as the earlier video, which showed men laughing uproariously at performances punctuated by pantomimed sex acts and racist language about blacks, Jews and Hispanics.

Chancellor Kent Syverud said in a statement that this second video goes against all "Syracuse University holds dear about diversity and inclusion of people with disabilities".

More than 30 percent of the 15,000-plus undergraduate students join the school's fraternities and sororities. Syracuse said disciplinary actions could be filed against additional Theta Tau brothers.

"This event was never meant to be centered around racism or hate", the chapter said in a statement.

On Friday, after the chapter was suspended following the release of the first video, the Tau Theta Tau chapter posted on their website that "it was a satirical sketch of an uneducated, racist, homophobic, misogynist, sexist, ableist and intolerant person", meant to "roast" an active brother in the fraternity. Syracuse University doesn't plan to release them to the public. He said officials do not want to compromise evidence in the investigation or distribute "hateful and hurtful content".
