ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity members have until midnight Tuesday to move out of their house at the University of Oklahoma after a racist video went viral.

The University is investigating and considering other punishment.

At Albany State University most members of fraternities and sororities at the historically black college are black, but one fraternity member said whether a fraternity is integrated or not, hate and ignorance should never be tolerated.

Jeremy Jones said any Greek organization spreading hate is missing the point of Greek life.

"What we have to do as people who are supposed to be above the norm. The scholars and the people exceeding. You have to realize that it's not about race. It's about helping the community. And so, that's our goal,” said Jeremy Jones.

I spoke with an Albany man today who was an SAE member at the University of Georgia. He didn't want to go on camera but told me he has never heard of anything like this in his years of affiliation with the fraternity.

He said the chants are stupid, moronic and embarrassing.
