Just when you think this whole Black Lives Matter, systemic racism nonsense can’t possibly get any worse…along comes the Columbia University Marching Band.

Daily Mail – Columbia University’s marching band has claimed it’s disbanding after 116 years, declaring itself to be irreparably rooted in racism and oppression.

Following a vote on Saturday, the band’s leadership, known as the Bored, issued a statement saying that it has ‘maintained a club structure founded on the basis of racism, cultural oppression, misogyny, and sexual harassment.’

The statement read:

“The band has maintained a club structure founded on the basis of racism, cultural oppression, misogyny, and sexual harassment,” the statement said. “While substantial efforts have been made in recent years toward undoing decades of wrongdoing, we as a band feel ultimately that it is impossible to reform an organization so grounded in prejudiced culture and traditions.”

“The Band has unanimously and enthusiastically decided to dissolve. The Columbia University Marching Band will not continue to exist in any capacity and will no longer serve as a Columbia spirit group.”

Here’s the statement they posted on Facebook:

Add anti-US military, anti-Christian and anti-Catholic to the band that quit over alleged systemic racism.

But the band has courted controversy over the years, gaining a permanent ban from performing at West Point in 1972 after performing what it called a ‘burning Cambodian village’ on the military college’s football field.

The marching band also earned a 10-year ban from Fordham University in 2002 after the band joked that Fordham’s tuition was ‘going down like an altar boy’ during the pre-game show.

After the Fordham ban was lifted, it was promptly reinstated and made indefinite after the Columbia marching band made posters referencing the death of Christians in the jaws of lions (Columbia’s mascot) in ancient Rome.

Now for the real question…will anyone even miss them?
