WAKA FLOCKA Cancels Show Scheduled At University of Oklahoma Amid Racist Sigma Alpha Epsilon Frat Chant Gone Viral

The reality is, while you have the right to feel what you feel, say, (and sing) what you want to sing-you have to do it on your own maverick, by your own watch, and at risk of your own individual reputation.

On [Founder’s Day of what would have been a celebration for the 159th anniversary for Sigma Alpha Epsilon] some University of Oklahoma sappy frat members congregating and chanting to the tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know It” remixed it to the tune of:

There will never be a nig*** in SAE” / you can hang them from a tree, but they’ll never sign with me.”

…and just like that, your 10 seconds of fame shame is over-especially when your frat is made possible by way of, and is a part of a college University by which you are associated—University of Oklahoma in this case.

The chapter and the chapter’s president got involved (after being tweeted):







After thousands of tweets made way to the University’s president David Boren, he tweeted:

Eleven hours later:




The University’s president asserts that the persons in the video were acting [quote] “in a reprehensible and disgraceful way”[unquote] and (as you read) announced the closing of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon local chapter. And so ends their story and 10 seconds of shame.




As well, rapper “Waka Flocka Flame” who was scheduled to performing on the campus next month canceled, with this note to toll his reason:



With regard to sanctions for this issue: in addition to the local chapter being suspended, the member of the fraternity have been asked to move out by midnight tomorrow (March 10, 2015).
