A Texas member of an embattled fraternity is defending his frat brothers with racially insensitive Tweets. Turner Coulson is a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon at the University of Texas.  Shortly after two members of the same fraternity were expelled from University of Oklahoma over a racist chant that was caught on video, Coulson tweeted,  “Let’s start gangs, shoot each other and attack cops, then maybe the media will like us.”

Meanwhile, there are two more schools being investigated to determine if racist chants were used in the SAE chapters on their campuses, including Coulson’s. The president of the Austin campus of the University of Texas is confirming that they’re looking into the rumors that the same chant was used by their chapter. The third chapter under investigation hasn’t been identified by the frat’s national offices. The University of Oklahoma has closed their chapter and the two students viewed on that video leading the chant have been expelled. OU’s president, David Boren, says he expects more students to be disciplined and even expelled as the school continues its investigation into the video.

And the upside of this racial debacle, an update…

The funds just keep rolling in for the chef who now loses his job at the SAE house after cooking for these singing frat members and their alumns for well over a decade. A crowd funding page that was set up to assist Chef Howard Dixon has 27 days left to raise funds. The original $50,ooo goal has been met but generous donors continue to give so the Chef Dixon isn’t financially devastated by losing his job due to the closure of the SAE chapter on OU’s campus. People are continuing to protest regarding this incident–both students on the campus and community, according to media reports in front of the homes of the expelled students. Regardless, Dixon tells CBS News he still considers SAE “family.” Check out the page set up for Chef Dixon on IndieGoGo, HERE.
