A sorority on the University of New Mexico campus is now speaking out and apologizing following alleged racist remarks. 

During a new Greek member meeting last week, a group of African American students say they heard some members of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority say, “black people, get away from me,” and “black people stop wearing grills.” 

Friday, the sorority posted a statement on its Facebook page apologizing. 

It says in part, “These actions do not reflect our membership, our beliefs, or our core values… We intend to inform our members on the importance of diversity, inclusion and the respect for others.” 

KKG’s national chapter and UNM are still investigating the incident.
