A member of the fraternity that was closed over an appalling racist chant which was caught on video, just amped up the rhetoric.
Turner Coulson took to his Twitter account this week to send racially charged tweets just before deleting his account.
The San Antonio Express-News reports:
A Texas State University student who is a former member of a national fraternity that shut down its University of Oklahoma chapter amid a racism scandal posted a series of racially charged tweets blasting the nationwide outrage over the incident.
A series of tweets and photos posted by Turner Coulson — whose deleted Twitter, Instagram and Linkedin accounts show his affiliation with the Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter at Texas State — began making the rounds on social media Wednesday afternoon.
The deleted tweets were posted by Twitter user @CurlyheadRED.

“If it was black people singing about crackers we would never hear a word about it,” Coulson wrote in one tweet.
A screenshot of his newly deleted Twitter account:
Margarita Arellano, the university’s dean of students, spoke with the San Antonio Express-News in a phone interview, saying that Coulson is no longer an active member of the organization.
“He does not represent the organization, he doesn’t represent the university,” Arellano said.
Coulson is a public administration junior at Texas State, according to Arellano.
“Let’s start gangs and shoot each other and attack cops then maybe the media will like us. #CNNHatesMe,” Coulson tweeted.
He continued, “I’ve been chanting Cracker for 20 minutes, no CNN story yet. Will keep you updated.”
In Coulson’s Instagram profile, a picture was displayed of the former member dressed in a poncho with two other people along with the caption, “Took San Antonio by storm. We, we (sic) probably offended some people, but hey we definitely made some people smile.”
Coulson was listed as a member of the Texas chapter of the fraternity on Aug. 3, 2014.
The University of Oklahoma ended its affiliation with SAE this week after the video of the racist chant went viral.
OU President David Boren then expelled the two students who led the chant.
While Boren took action and blamed the individuals responsible, Joe Scarborough blamed rap music. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
