Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity (DKE) posted a banner at Louisiana State University regarding the Colin Kaepernick controversy that has people talking.
The fraternity hung up a handwritten banner poking fun at Kaepernick that read, “Oh say can you see Kaepernick sits when he pees.”
While many weren’t happy with the banner, the Coalition of LSU Student Organizations Committed to Community wrote a letter to university’s newspaper, the LSU Reveille, which read, “While we acknowledge their first amendment right to free speech even when that speech expresses unpopular ideas, we believe it’s highly important to formally state that such behavior fosters a hostile campus environment for a large number of students.”
The organization touched on how the fraternity’s actions are violating “LSU’s Code of Conduction Section 1: Commitment to Community,” and stated the violations.
They also hope to get the LSU Office of Diversity, Greek Life and Dean of Students together to “grant a meeting with students affected” and ensure all banners on-campus are approved by the campus before they go up.
The full letter reads:
Sadly, this isn’t the first time DKE posted banners that were in poor taste:
The banner comes weeks after San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick chose to sit through the national anthem before a preseason game.
