Syracuse U Permanently Expels Fraternity Over Racist, Anti-Semitic Video

Syracuse Suspends Theta Tau Fraternity, Accused Of Exhibiting Racist Behavior

The students, whom the school will not identify because of federal privacy law, are banned from classes during the disciplinary process.

A second disturbing video of Syracuse University fraternity members was published online over the weekend, as 18 students face possible expulsion for the videos showing them engaged in offensive behavior.

Campus newspaper The Daily Orange posted the latest video Saturday, shortly after Theta Tau's expulsion.

This is not uncommon for universities nationwide, which have been dealing with racism and uproar in the Greek community.

On the other hand, he regretted that a "divided court" is finding itself helpless to respond to these intimidatory tactics. Jaitley further said, "Trivialising the use of the power (of impeachment) is a unsafe event".

In an interview with The D.O. on Saturday, Syverud said he met with student leaders on Friday to discuss Theta Tau. "They especially offend all Syracuse University holds dear about diversity and inclusion of people with disabilities", Syverud said regarding the second video. The first video released last week apparently showed members joking about the Holocaust and using racial and anti-Semitic slurs.

More than 30 percent of the 15,000-plus undergraduate students join the school's fraternities and sororities. He also noted there are other videos that have not been made public and that the school's response has been limited because "we do not reveal evidence in an ongoing potential criminal and judicial investigation so as not to prejudice that investigation and so as not to enable those being investigated to escape responsibility for all of their actions".

The chapter apologized for its contents, which its members tried to play off as satire of a conservative frat brother.

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 goal of the "sketch".

The fraternity also released a statement on its website, offering an apology for the "the racist video that was recorded as a part of our new member process". Syracuse University doesn't plan to release them to the public.
