Millennials ‘confused, appalled’ by racist SAE video

The 9-second internet video featuring members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity at the University of Oklahoma singing a racist chant has sparked anger and confusion for many millennials across the country. Students held protests on campuses and took to social media to share their disappointment, outrage and concern.

According to a survey from the Pew Research Center in 2010 and another from MTV and David Binder Research in 2014, millennials are supposed to be more tolerant, and more racially progressive than older generations. So how did this happen? 
SRL reporters interviewed their peers about their initial reactions to the video and asked what social responsibilities, if any, young people have after such an incident.
