Ludicrous – NewsOne Makes Pathetic Attempt to Link Racist OU SAE’s to Repubs
March 19, 2015
A shameful attempt was made by NewsOne to take the obnoxious and idiotic statements by members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon at the University of Oklahoma and attach it to “infamous” SAE members who all happen to be Republicans.
If NewsOne had made any effort, they could have found Sigma Alpha Epsilon calls several of its famous alums as members of the Democrat party. Some of these Democrats actively stood in the way of Civil Rights legislation.
Following are just a few Democrats who Sigma Alpha Epsilon claim as members.
Mark Pryor, United States Senator, Arkansas
David Pryor, Former United States Senator and Governor, Arkansas
Max Baucus, Former United States Senator and Current Ambassador to China, Appointed by President Obama
David Bonior, Former United States Senator
Two distinguish themselves as actively fighting Civil Rights legislation during the 1960s. George Smathers, Former United States Senator from Florida and Paul Johnson, Former Governor of Mississippi. Johnson was really special as he played a significant role in preventing James Meredith from enrolling at Mississippi in 1962. If you wish to read NewsOne’s poorly written piece, go here
Also, to offer some balance for SAE, they also claim credit to Former United States Senator Dennis Chavez, the first elected Hispanic member of the Senate from New Mexico.
SafeFrat has no love for Sigma Alpha Epsilon. However, it is not fair to attempt to associate other members with the stupid actions of current college students at Oklahoma. It is particularly repulsive to selectively pick Republican members of SAE when history shows that Democrats have had a proportionate share of any bigotry or racism in the history of the United States.
Abolishing Fraternity Life Is Not a Solution
November 24, 2014
The administrations at Clemson, California State University at Northridge West Virginia University and most recently at the University of Virginia have elected to halt all fraternity activity on their respective campuses following unspeakable tragedies.
There is no excuse for the death of a student as the result of being associated with a fraternity. There is no excuse for a guest to be raped at a fraternity function. Fraternities exist to encourage scholarship, develop character and foster support and loyalty to the host institution.
There is also no excuse to trample on the rights of students who had nothing to do with the specific tragedies. Eliminating the right for students to freely associate is un-American and does not solve the behavior challenges of the fraternity culture. These issues can only be solved through greater supervision of the groups either by volunteer alumni or college/university staff.
