Syracuse Suspends Theta Tau Fraternity, Accused Of Exhibiting Racist Behavior

As Syracuse University expelled a fraternity for spewing hateful racist taunts and making lewd homophobic jokes in a video, another video has surfaced showing members mocking an assault on a disabled person.

He said an investigation into the videos was continuing and others "may be implicated in the coming days". "They especially offend all Syracuse University holds dear about diversity and inclusion of people with disabilities", Syverud said regarding the second video.

The Central New York school has condemned the contents of the first video, which Chancellor Kent Syverud said in a separate statement displayed "extreme and egregious racism, sexism, ableism, anti-Semitism and homophobia".

The chancellor said on Saturday that the investigation of students involved in the video has been pursued with "speed and with vigor".

38 individuals have been interviewed so far by University's department of public safety. "By the end of this weekend, DPS will begin recommending charges".

The university initially announced Theta Tau's suspension on Wednesday.

To cover up the leaked video, members of the fraternity state the video was taken out of context and was a "satirical piece for a new frat member who espoused conservative political views, ABC News reported".

Amid ongoing investigations, the fraternity chapter insist that the video was meant to be "satirical" and that they were deliberately acting like an intolerant person for the objective of the "sketch".

"I solemnly swear to always have hatred in my heart for n*****s, sp*cs and most importantly the f***in' k*kes", a member repeats, phrase by phrase, using slurs for black, Hispanic and Jewish people, respectively in the video that was posted on the student newspaper's website. "There is absolutely no place at Syracuse University for tolerance of this behavior".

Syverud also says there will be a "top-to-bottom review of our entire Greek system", acknowledging that the issue goes much deeper than the most incident, according to NBC News.
