KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The video that shows the University of Oklahoma Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity singing a racist chant is impacting other schools across the country.

A SAE fraternity member at Kansas State University said he was attacked on campus while wearing his Greek letters, according to KMBC.

“As I was walking to class, another group of kids was walking by me and stuck their foot out and kicked me in the leg and called me a racist,” Eli Camp told KMBC.

Camp told the local news station that he didn’t fight back.

“Any retaliation would have looked bad on our chapter and this is a very hard time for us, so the best thing is to not react and show what we stand for,” he said.

K-State issued a statement reminding students that their chapter does not share the same beliefs as the SAE members at OU.

In fact, according to KMBC, about one-third of K-State’s SAE members are minorities.

“We have a lot of diversity in our chapter, all nationalities,” said Camp.

Despite the alleged attack, Camp says he is not worried.

He says his fraternity decided they will continue to wear their Greek letters on campus.
