Black Twitter is taking a moment to remind the world that the racism isn’t just a problem at the University of Oklahoma.

It’s often said that we live in a post-racial America—particularly because we have a Black president in the White House. However, as incidents in Ferguson and New York have reminded us, that’s simply not the case.

People are still very upset about a video where members of the OU chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon are gleefully singing an incredibly racist song in which they chanted that a “n*gger” would never pledge their frat. A Twitter user with the handle @kidnoble used the outrage as an opportunity for racial discussion as he posed two questions on Monday.

The responses, which were all horrifying, brought to light the fact that racism is still a reality in the United States that many people had to face at very young ages.

For some, the first run-in came a little later in life, but the experience was still very hurtful.
