Madness: Columbia University Says School Marching Band is Racist, So They Disband It

Columbia University does not have a marching band, anymore. They canceled the 116-year-old band because it is “racist” and “sexist.”

Yes, the madness of leftism continues to destroy everything it touches in this era of senseless, woke, PCism.

Band leadership told the school’s student newspaper, the Columbia Spectator, that the band was “too corrupted to fix.”

In a statement, band leaders said the decision to dissolve was the result of “anonymous postings and allegations of sexual misconduct, assault, theft, racism, and injury to individuals and the Columbia community as a whole,” which were discussed during a band meeting held on Sept. 12.

“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,” the statement says. “The Columbia University Marching Band apologizes for insult and injury victims have experienced as a result of actions perpetrated in its name. The Band has maintained a club structure founded on the basis of racism, cultural oppression, misogyny, and sexual harassment. 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 been roiled by internal strife for months.

“The CUMB has very serious problems when it comes to racism, sexual assault, and alcohol culture,” the band wrote on Sept. 2.

Some were upset over the elimination of the band, though.

“The band is gone, and if and when it returns, it will be exactly what the corporations bankrolling Ivy League sports specifically because Ivy League sports is an essential establishment power identification and training system, want it to be,” said Steve Greenfield, a former drum major from the class of 1982.

So… you can’t just get rid of leaders and replace them with better people? The whole thing has to be thrown out?

This is the perfect example of the saying about the stupidity of “throwing the baby out with the bath water.”

Instead of fixing it, you’re cancelling it?

This is your brain on liberalism.
