To Ban or Not To Ban That Is the Question How would banning fraternities and sororities impact the students?

Fraternity members and their female escorts were filmed riding in a charter bus to an event for the national organizations Founders Day, singing a chant that constantly used the word “nigger”. On march, 8th 2015 a cell phone video of the fraternity singing “There will never be a nigger in SAE there will never be a nigger in SAE, you can hang him from a tree, but he can never sign with me, there will never be a nigger in SAE" was posted (“A History Of Racism At Sigma Alpha Epsilon”4). This made a statement about lynching, and insinuated that blacks will never be able to sign up for their organization. That is a case where a fraternity should be banned in all universities.…
