Another SAE Chapter Suspended for Racist Slurs

May 20, 2016

The University of Wisconsin at Madison has suspended Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity after an investigation found that chapter members repeatedly used racist, homophobic and anti-Semitic slurs, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. The fraternity also was found to have ostracized a black member who asked them to stop using the slurs. Last year, a video of members of the SAE chapter at the University of Oklahoma singing a song with racist slurs attracted national attention. And while SAE officials have said that the organization is committed to treating all people equally, the Madison incident is the latest in a series of racial incidents involving chapters of the fraternity.
