Racist Rant {Video} University of Oklahoma SAE Fraternity Nigger Song is Freedom of Expression !?

Published On March 12, 2015 | By admin | Local & Worldwide News

University of Oklahoma President David Boren has expelled two students, members of SAE fraternity, for participating in a racist rant on a bus. The rant included the following:

There will never be a nigger at SAE
There will never be a nigger at SAE
You can hang him from a tree
But he’ll never sign with me
There will never be a nigger at SAE

Needless to say, such language is abhorrent. But the University of Oklahoma cannot constitutionally expel the students for this expression.

The Supreme Court has made it quite clear that public universities cannot constitutionally discipline their students for speech merely because it offends the university’s sense of decency.

In light of those precedents, it seems clear that the University of Oklahoma violated the First Amendment when it expelled the SAE students for their offensively racist expression. Students, faculty, alumni, and administrators came together to affirm that the expression indulged in by the SAE students was odious, stupid, insulting, offensive, and degrading. They did what the First Amendment expects us to do — to answer bad speech with condemnation. And in the end, the people will judge.
