Despite swift action to shut down the fraternity, the Oklahoma student body is still trying to come to terms with this. There has even been a protest on campus.
The loudest and most powerful response might be from linebacker Eric Striker, who posted a response over a couple of brief Snapchat videos. Even though the app is designed to prevent someone from saving or sharing content shared on the app, someone played it while aother person recorded it on a second device and then uploaded it to Twitter.
The video includes a lot of swearing, but he does bring up a solid point about how these same kids signing racist chants would be the first to welcome any OU football player into a party or social gathering, congratulate them on a good game, or ask for an autograph or picture.Be warned, there is explicit language.
His response has led to some mixed reaction, most thinking that he made a powerful and justified statement, others worried that he will now face his own disciplinary issues.
If you missed the video that led to this response, it is below. Be warned though, the video contains graphic and disturbing language.
