DALLAS (AP) – A handful of protesters took to the street in front of the home of a former University of Oklahoma student and fraternity member who was shown in a video leading a racist chant aboard a bus.

About 20 demonstrators Wednesday evening marched up and down the North Dallas residential street in front of the home of Parker Rice. Watching them were about two dozen news media representatives and six police officers.

The protesters chanted, "Racism is taught," and, "Racism is a choice."

Rice has apologized for the chant he led along with another Sigma Alpha Epsilon member aboard a bus last weekend.

The chant referenced lynching and indicated black students would never be admitted to OU’s chapter of SAE.

Rice has said he’s withdrawn from the university.
