A fraternity at Syracuse University that had been suspended over a racist video is now permanently expelled from the campus. "This year, one of these brothers is a conservative Republican, and the new members roasted him by playing the part of a racist conservative character", the NY school's Theta Tau chapter said on its website.

The video showed a group of white men laughing heartily at skits punctuated by racist language against African Americans, Jews and Hispanics, as well as simulated sex acts.

The university announced the expulsion of Syracuse's Theta Tau chapter on its website Saturday.

The fraternity chapter further explained that the parody was a "satirical sketch of an uneducated, racist, homophobic, misogynist, sexist, ableist and intolerant person".

"The new members roasted him by playing the part of a racist conservative character".

In other videos posted to the Facebook group, a fraternity member is seen referencing gas torture chambers and another mocking someone in a wheelchair.

Editor's note: Please be advised the video contains graphic, offensive content.

"I think it was the right decision by Syracuse University, I think they took the proper steps to make sure that it was the entirety of the right decision".

"The young man playing the part of this character nor the young man being roasted do not hold any of the terrible views espoused as a part of that sketch", they said in a statement.

The racist video had been part of a skit to roast an active brother, who is a conservative Republican, it said in the statement.

The national Theta Tau organization also released a statement saying that "the content of the video is unacceptable and directly violates the values and expectations that have been put in place for all of our chapters".

"They have been identified on social media, and due to the university having leaked this video to the press, they are now endangered", Abraham said.

The video triggered university-wide protests by students demanding action for the hateful words.
