video that surfaced online showed University of Oklahoma fraternity members chanting a racist song that joked about lynching black people. Social media is increasingly exposing inside-culture extremism, bonding once-separated marginalized groups in their struggles. “Just seeing how comfortable these students seemed singing this song shows the culture of leniency within that fraternity, along with the lack of authority and supervision within the national organization.” The commentary by Sean Shavers is on Richmond Pulse.
