A fraternity of the University of Georgia was suspended after a viral video showed that fraternity members showed racial demands. The video published online shows a student whipping another person with a belt and saying, "Pick my cotton, b *** h." The sentence was repeated and followed by a racist slur.
The local Tau Kappa Epsilon chapter was suspended by its national branch and four members were expelled. The organization said it was "disgusted, horrified and annoyed" by the remarks in the video. "TKE does not tolerate acts that are defined as racist, discriminatory and / or offensive."
The university also condemned the video in a statement: "Racism has no place on our campus and we will continue our efforts to promote a friendly and supportive learning environment for our students, faculty and staff, and the Brotherhood has been suspended by its national organization . "
Tau Kappa Epsilon is a national college college community founded in 1899 for men. It has 240 active captains and colonies and over 285,000 initiated members. The Brotherhood's motto is "Better Men for a Better World."
