Syracuse frat suspended for 'extremely racist, anti-semitic' vid

In one six-minute video, a person was forced on his knees and repeats the oath, "I solemnly swear to always have hatred in my heart for ..." before repeating a number of racial slurs.

According to The Daily Orange, Theta Tau is the fourth fraternity to be suspended by the university this academic year.

In another video, a person using anti-Semitic slurs shouts at two others as the rest of the people present laugh, according to The Daily Orange.

Syracuse students protested Wednesday after the university declined to release the video and Chancellor Kent Syverud held a meeting for students at 2:30 p.m.

"I am appalled and shaken by this and deeply concerned for all members of our community", Syverud said in the email. "What happened at Theta Tau serves as a reminder that violations of codes of honor, behavior and values will be met with swift and appropriate consequences". Students protesting Wednesday night eventually chose to forego demands to see the video when concerns about the nature of the "relationship violence, racism and sexism" would likely be too disturbing for some, it was reported. It's my understanding that the Department of Public Safety is pursuing identification of these young men for legal and disciplinary action. "The only difference between this display of prejudice and so many others that go unnoticed at the university is that someone recorded it, and it got out".

A you may know, a professional fraternity at Syracuse University was suspended this week due to offensive conduct of some of its members that appeared in a video.

By midafternoon Wednesday, the chapter's website and Facebook page were no longer accessible.

So, it is safe to say that reoccurring incidents of hazing, racism and sexism is clearly an issue that needs to be addressed within white fraternity and sorority organizations.

"You f--ing k--s, get in the f--ing showers", he said, according to The Daily Orange.

Charity Luster, vice president of the Syracuse chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers, told the crowd in the chapel, "I hope this event does not just spark a conversation on one video but that it sparks a conversation around how people of color and underrepresented people are treated on this campus". Alpha Epsilon Pi was suspended in February for unsafe conduct involving a new member.
