Athlete protest

Wide Receiver Sterling Shepard and Center Ty Darlington walk with OU's football team walk out in all black during what was scheduled to be an open practice on Monday.

Oklahoma linebacker Eric Striker made a followup video Monday morning to the expletive-laced Snapchat he posted Sunday night in response to the circulation of a video showing Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity members participating in a racist chant.

The new video, which was posted to OU defensive end Charles Tapper's twitter, shows Striker apologizing for his language in the Snapchat, but not for his message. 

"I'm not apologizing about how I feel," Striker said in the video. "I'm hurt. My heart is hurting. But I do apologize for the curse words."
