How did the University of Oklahoma’s racist chant become public?


The chant is horrific, but that is not the most important thing here. How did we get an opportunity to see this video? Because someone on that bus released it to the public. Maybe they just didn’t like the leader, or maybe they were uncomfortable with the lyrics or maybe they just thought it was wrong. Whatever reason I say thank you.

    EM, you know me. I have a very high threshold for what I call “racist”. I can say with great ease that this clears the bar handily, with room to spare. There is no excuse; these young men are college-age and should be intelligent enough to know that what they are saying is offensive and wrong. So either they know and don’t care, or they know and didn’t think they would get caught. Either way, they should pay the price I always advocate for people who espouse racist leanings: They should have their names and faces publicized. We as a society have a right to know when we are in the midst of a racist. If that means they have fewer opportunities to make use of that fine Oklahoma University education-if they actually earn it-so be it. Freedom of speech is not freedom from consequences. So play that chant. Play it over and over. Just make sure you get the names right.

    Or they thought it was funny and they wanted to share it with other like-minded folks. Are we surprised that these types of things happen in 2015?
