Yale Sigma Alpha Epsilon accused of turning away students of color for ‘white girls only’ Halloween party


By Tobias Salinger
A Yale fraternity member used a “white girls only” policy to turn away students of color from a Halloween party Friday night, students said.

A brother at the Ivy League university’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter screened out non-white students from a crowded party at the frat house as students waited in line to try to get in, Sofia Petros-Gouin told The Washington Post.

“A group of girls came up who were predominantly black and Hispanic. He held his hand up to their faces and said, ‘No, we’re only looking for white girls,’” said Petros-Gouin, a Columbia student who was visiting friends at Yale over the weekend.

“He pulled a blonde girl up from the bottom of the stairs — over some people — pushed her inside and said, ‘We are looking for white girls only, white girls only.’ No brothers corrected him or said anything.”

Officials at the international headquarters of SAE - which lost its University of Oklahoma chapter in March after a video of brothers singing a racist chant surfaced - promised to investigate the claims made by several students about the party.

Yale student Neema Githere first drew attention to the matter with a post on Facebook the day after the shindig. “I'd just like to take a moment to give a shoutout to the member of Yale's SAE chapter who turned away a group of girls from their party last night, explaining that admittance was on a ‘White Girls Only’ basis; and a belated shoutout to the SAE member who turned me and my friends away for the same reason last year.
