In case you haven’t heard, self-described conservative Bill Kristol has chimed in on the Oklahoma frat story by blaming rap music for a racist and terror-laced fight song seen being sung by University of Oklahoma students. I’m sure I’m not the only person wondering what rap music Bill Kristol is listening to. We all know, including Mr. Kristol, that the tradition of whites excluding and lynching blacks, as we heard in the SAE sing-along (to the tune of “If You’re Happy And You Know It”) is centuries older than rap music.
Thus far, public expression over the exposed video has been largely to impugn the judgment of the fraternity brothers. The SAE national chapter shut down the Oklahoma house. Two of the fraternity brothers have been expelled. Just as the spiritual compensation commences, along comes a toxic conservative who tries to peg black music performers as the culprit. These people have no sense of personal responsibility!
