ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A racist song chanted by members of a University of Oklahoma fraternity was learned at a national Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity leadership cruise four years ago, University President David Boren said on Friday. He said in addition to the two song leaders who have withdrawn from the university, 25 other students have been disciplined over the incident, which was video recorded and shown on the Internet. The 10-second video was shot on a bus chartered for a date night by the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity and posted online this month. Students are seen and heard chanting in unison, using offensive language referring to black people and vowing never to admit them to the fraternity.
