NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — A University of Oklahoma fraternity will close and its members will be suspended after the group’s national headquarters says a video of members participating in a racist chant was posted online.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon said Sunday night that an investigation had confirmed the contents of a video showing multiple people chanting a racial slur against blacks and indicating that blacks would never be admitted to the fraternity. The chant also references lynching.

The national fraternity said in a statement that it was “embarrassed” by the “unacceptable and racist” behavior.

The video was first posted online by a black student group at OU. It wasn’t immediately clear how it was obtained.

The university said earlier Sunday that it was investigating and didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment about the chapter’s closure.

    Black people still gonna break their neck to live and go to school with white people because that was them as an individual that did that not the whole race. Whereas these same black people don’t want to be around us because if one black person do something wrong that is the whole race and not him doing wrong and yet they think white folks are saying the same thing about them, Boggles the mind.

    Oklahoma and (OU) is like being in Mississippi. Attitudes are no different. As long as you can run a football and not fumble, dunk a basketball you’ll get a scholarship. But you will not graduate from there. Blacks don’t even have to go to class sometimes. once used they throw you away. Check the stats on how many black football or basketball players graduate from there, look at the transcripts it will blow your mind.

      Someone trying to play the race card. That song should have said we don’t want to join the group because we don’t want to catch lice ad bedbugs.
