Racist Fraternity Chapter Closed after Racist Video Is Posted Online

Good riddance:

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — The president of the University of Oklahoma lambasted members of a fraternity on Monday who participated in a racist chant caught on video, calling them disgraceful and their behavior reprehensible, and ordered that their house be vacated by midnight.

President David Boren joined students at a pre-dawn rally on the Norman campus, just hours after the Sigma Alpha Epsilon said an investigation confirmed the contents of the online video. The video shows several people chanting a racial slur and indicating blacks would never be admitted to the fraternity. The chant also references lynching.

“These people have acted in a way that’s absolutely reprehensible and disgraceful,” Boren said. “Real Sooners are not bigots, racists.”

The national fraternity released a statement Sunday night saying it was “embarrassed” by the “unacceptable and racist” behavior. It also said it would close the local chapter. Boren later released a statement saying members had until midnight Tuesday to remove their personal belongings from the fraternity house.

The 3,229 Calorie Dessert From Cracker Barrel

When Men’s Health contributor Sarah Jacobsson Purewal sat down for a family meal at Cracker Barrel, she was shocked when she used the My Fitness Pal app to check the nutrition stats for CB’s Baked Apple Dumplin.

According to My Fitness Pal, this dish packs 3,229 calories. Yes, 3,229!

To double-check those numbers, we visited the Cracker Barrel website, hoping that perhaps My Fitness Pal was wrong.

There was no such information on the site. But we did find this FAQ:
