Staff members within the University of Oxford’s music department have reportedly suggested removing sheet music from the school’s curriculum because of its purported connections to a "colonial past."

Professors said that music notation has not "shaken off its connection to its colonial past" and that sticking with it would be a "slap in the face" for students of color, according to documents reviewed by the British outlet The Telegraph.

I suppose they believe a drum, a huge boogie box and anything that rhymes is music.

Lots of people I suppose who cannot read music, and listen and can play it by ear,, but trying to remember all of the classics while tossing away the sheet music is crazy. This doesn't even make sense.
Well most things tied to race in this century don't make sense .
