Backed by a pack of Black extras, one of the former University of Oklahoma SAE members caught on tape singing a racist chant offered an award-worthy, beautifully-staged apology Wednesday (March 25) to everyone whose feathers he’d ruffled while directing his now-famous hate musical, as reported by MSNBC. Get this: homeboy even pledged to spend the rest of his life battling racism and fighting for the acceptance of all of God’s people. (Yes, us wretched niggers too.)
“All the apologies in the world won’t change what I have done, so I will spend the rest of my life trying to be the person who heals and brings people of all races together,” Levi Pettit said during his politically-orchestrated press conference in Oklahoma City.
I don’t know if it was the University of Oklahoma, the wealthy crooks behind SAE, or Pettit’s rich White parents, but somebody coordinated a nice little meeting with a few no-name local “Black community leaders” to give this little bigot a pat-on-the-back and a corny prep talk before he made his glorious theatrical debut.
Included in that sad pack of back-up Blackies was Oklahoma State Sen. Anastasia A. Pittman, the chair of the Oklahoma Black Caucus, who thanked the media in her introduction for “giving us this opportunity to introduce Levi Pettit to the world.”
As he continued on with his bullshit, made-up speech (that he probably didn’t even write himself), Pettit added that he didn’t realize how tasteless, angering and alarming singing about “hanging niggers from trees” was until he met with the Black save-a-bro crew. “The people I met with have opened my eyes to things I wasn’t exposed to before this event. I think I knew they were wrong, but I never knew why or how they were wrong.”
To make matters worse, el fake-o wouldn’t reveal where he learned the chant from when asked during a brief Q&A.
“I’m not here to talk about where I learned the chant or where it was taught. I’m here to apologize for what I did,” he said. (Even more proof that this chant has been passed down generationally from one racist SAE frat bro to the next. SMH.)
News flash: There’s no way that a sit-down with a group of old Black ass-kissers is going to automatically transform someone who’s been taught to be a racist his whole life. Pettit meant what he said, and still does. It was written all over his face. He’s just sorry he got caught. Therefore, he may as well have kept that sorry, two-dollar-ass apology and bought a nice spot in the Sitchoassdown section of Wedontbelieveyouville.
