From the little information available, it appears a member of Chi Omega stupidly snapped a photo of a PowerPoint presentation with the caption, “Off probation n***as!” She then moronically sent the photo to her friends, and it eventually wound up in the hands of Alabama’s student paper, The Crimson White.
From The Crimson White:
A member of a University of Alabama sorority was released from her organization and will be referred to the Office of Student Conduct after allegedly sending a Snapchat containing a racial slur on Wednesday evening.
The Snapchat, a screenshot of which was obtained by The Crimson White, contains a photo of what appears to be a power point presentation congratulating Nu Beta, the University of Alabama chapter of Chi Omega sorority. The member included the caption, “Off probation n—-!”
“The University of Alabama is extremely disappointed when any student uses language that is disrespectful or offensive to any segment of the UA community,” said Deborah Lane, associate vice president for university relations, in an emailed statement to The Crimson White. “Behavior, actions and choices that disparage other students are particularly reprehensible and do not represent the values or meet the expectations of our University community.”
Lane said the sorority notified Chi Omega headquarters and the University of the incident immediately. The student who sent the message is no longer a member of the sorority and will be referred to the Office of Student Conduct according to Lane’s statement.
As you may recall, this particular house was stirred up in controversy for using the exact same racial slur in August. It’s hard to fathom why someone would bother including that word with a photo of the official sorority presentation after receiving so much heat for it during rush, or why one of the members would bother taking a photo of it in the first place, but I know Alabama is not the school where you’d expect to find this nation’s best and brightest..
