ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) University of Oklahoma's President David Boren addressed students gathered on campus Monday morning to protest a racist video that surfaced over the weekend allegedly showing members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity chanting about lynchings. The 10-second video, which was posted online on Sunday and replayed by several media outlets, showed students on a bus chanted in unison using offensive language referring to African-Americans and vowing to never admit any into the fraternity. "Effective immediately, all ties between the university and the SAE chapter on the University of Oklahoma campus are severed. The house will be closed. The members will have until midnight until tomorrow night to remove all their belongings in the house," said President Boren. Hundreds of students gathered on campus to rally against the video. Many students lined up outside the Office of Student Affairs to write messages condemning the racist remarks.
