1. Oklahoma students expelled over racist video

University of Oklahoma officials expelled two students on Tuesday, accusing them of playing a "leadership role" in a racist chant by Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity members that was caught on video. President David Boren said the school was enforcing a "zero tolerance" policy for "threatening racist behavior." The university has closed the fraternity house and boarded up its windows. One of the students in the video, Parker Rice, apologized for what he called "a horrible mistake" and vowed to "reject racism" in the future.
