University Of Chicago Fraternity Apologizes For Racist Emails

The Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity at the University of Chicago issued a public apology Thursday, one day after BuzzFeed News published leaked racially charged emails in which brothers referred to a Muslim student activist as a “terrorist” and wrote about celebrating “Marathon Luther King Day” by going to a fried chicken restaurant. “We are sorry,” the fraternity said in a statement to students at the university. “We are sorry that our fraternity was ever a safe haven for the kind of vitriol you have now all seen, and we are sorry for the fact that when it was, none of us did enough to stop it.” The chapter also announced a series of steps to address the behavior, including amending their constitution to state to protect against bigotry and racism.
