Jon Stewart Disgusted by Conservatives’ Response to Fraternity Racism


It said a lot to Jon Stewart that the first apology in the wake of the University of Oklahoma’s racist chant video came not from the men who were leading the chant, but from an Oklahoma linebacker who said he regretted cursing in his reaction to the chant.

Many have been talking about Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s offensive video, something that former members say is not an isolated incident.

The discussion about racism is particularly noteworthy since it comes near the 50th anniversary of the Selma marches.

Some – including some in the media – have been looking for something to blame.
