MEA CULPA

SAE Bro Apologizes for Racist Chant

Levi Pettit, the University of Oklahoma student seen participating in a racist chant in a video that went viral, has apologized. “There are no excuses for my behavior,” he said in a statement.” I never thought of myself as a racist. I never even considered the possibility. But the bottom line is that the words I said in the chant were mean, and hateful and racist. I will be deeply sorry and deeply ashamed of what I have done for the rest of my life.”
