NEW HAVEN   — Yale students are voicing their concerns about alleged racist remarks at a fraternity house party over the Halloween weekend.

The New Haven Register reports the Ivy league university held a forum attended by students, faculty and administrators Wednesday night at the Afro American Cultural Center.

The forum was sparked by allegations a Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity brother turned away women of color from a Saturday party saying they were only letting in white girls.

Female audience members described discrimination, antagonism and sexual advances by white men on campus.

Some questioned why the fraternity was allowed to throw the party. The fraternity has been banned from campus activities until 2016 for violating the university’s sexual-misconduct policy.

The national Sigma Alpha Epsilon organization says it’s investigating the incident.
