The Depressing Thing About the SAE Bigot Eruption

By now, you might have heard about the Oklahoma University chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon (‘SAE’) which recently had a slight bigot eruption, including singing this little ditty:

“There will never be a n*gg*r in SAE.
There will never be a n*gg*r in SAE.
You can hang him from a tree, but he can never sign with me
There will never be a n*gg*r in SAE.”

What’s depressing isn’t that, in the year 2015 of Our Intelligent Designer, there are assholes–assholes are a eternal constant regardless of the era. It’s that this isn’t an spontaneous outburst. I’m willing to cut someone some slack and recognize that everyone has moments of weakness. But this is a song–and someone taught it to them (you don’t think this is the only SAE chapter where this occurs, do you?). It was an organized activity, not a moment of human weakness.

Sure, they’re young, so there’s always hope they’ll learn from this. But they should have been old enough to realize this is despicable, disgusting behavior.

But what’s truly awful is these idiots will graduate from college and go on to be supposedly upstanding members of society. You know, like city managers, judges, police chiefs, and prosecutors.

What could possibly go wrong?

    I don’t think “young” is a reasonable excuse here. These aren’t five year olds. In fact, ask any five year old, and s/he has learned that being mean to people is not good, and that there are words you’re not supposed to say. This is racist assholery from the getgo.
