Jon Stewart: Why Did SAE Frat Bros Wait So Long To Apologize For Its 'Anti-Negro Spirituals?'

Fraternity brothers from the now-defunct Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter at the University of Oklahoma have apologized for their infamous racist chant, but they weren't the first to do so.

No, the first man to say sorry was Eric Striker, a linebacker on the OU football team, who publicly lashed out at the frat after its racist video went viral.

"I apologize for the profanity, but I'm not apologizing for how I felt," Striker said.

That's thoughtful of him. But why didn't SAE apologize first for what Jon Stewart calls its "anti-negro spirituals?"

On Wednesday night, he let conservatives on MSNBC try to explain. And it didn't go very well.
