A new video has emerged of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon [SAE] Fraternity house mom at the Oklahoma University repeating the n-word over and over again while laughing. This is as two students were expelled over their alleged "leadership role" in a video of the frat members singing a racist song which surfaced online two days ago. The video has led to outrage on social media and protests by other students in the school - both African Americans and others.

In the video, several white students who seem dressed for a party are seen on a bus singing, clapping, pumping their fists and laughing. The song rhyming to "If You're Happy and You Know it", and goes; "There'll never be a ni**** SAE. You can hang him from a tree, but he can never sign with me. There'll never be a ni**** SAE".

The Islamic State militants have released a new and sickening video which shows a young boy of about 10 years old shooting dead 19-year-old Muhammad Said Ismail Musallam, an Israeli-Arab recruit who was captured last year by the terror group after he was deemed to be a spy.

Mussallam, who was taken by jihadists in Syria, was shown in the video kneeling in front of an armed ISIS militant in the middle of the field. He told the story of his training, before he is shot in the back of his head by the young boy.

A middle school teacher was only put on a paid administrative leave after he was caught on tape angrily ranting at a class of 12 and 13 year olds using several swear and cuss words. Bizarrely also, he referenced the size of his p*nis and threatened to show it to the children.

A 12-year-old student recorded the seven-minute tirade and played it back to her mother. The outraged mom shared it with the press after she claimed the principal of the affected school refused to do anything about the incident. She had to make the tape public and go to the school district before the man was even suspended.
