Oklahoma Frat Boys Caught Singing 'There Will Never Be A Ni**** In SAE'

Video posted online Sunday purports to show members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon at the University of Oklahoma on a bus singing racist lyrics about their fraternity. Both the national organization for SAE and the university said have seen the video and are investigating.

The nine-second video, uploaded by an anonymous user on YouTube, shows a group of college students in formal attire clapping while they sing racist lyrics to the tune of "If You're Happy And You Know It" during a date function. The lyrics as heard in the video are:

"There will never be a ni**** in SAE.

There will never be a ni**** in SAE.

You can hang him from a tree, but he can never sign with me

There will never be a ni**** in SAE."

"I have just been informed of the video, which purports to show students engaging in a racist chant," OU President David Boren said in a statement to The Huffington Post. "We are investigating to determine if the video involved OU students. If OU students are involved, this behavior will not be tolerated and will be addressed very quickly. This behavior is contrary to all of our values."

SAE, the largest fraternity in North America, was founded in the Antebellum South. The national organization did not immediately provide comment, but said on Twitter it is looking into the incident.

Students with the campus activist group Unheard UO are planning protest Monday morning at the school.
