The University of Mississippi has officially dumped “Dixie” so they can be more inclusive.

I fear old times there will soon be forgotten, folks. 

The athletic department released a statement Friday announcing that the beloved Southern song will no longer be played at home football games ending yet another long-held tradition.

"The newly expanded and renovated Vaught-Hemingway Stadium will further highlight our best traditions and create new ones that give the Ole Miss Rebels the best home field advantage in college football," the statement reads.

“Dixie” was first played by the Ole Miss band around 1948, Mississippi Today reports. 

"Because the Pride of the South is such a large part of our overall experience and tradition, the Athletics Department asked them to create a new and modern pregame show that does not include Dixie and is more inclusive for all fans, the statement went on to read.”

More inclusive, eh?

Perhaps they could consult with Beyonce? I’m certain the university will find some inspiration from her 2016 Super Bowl Halftime performance.
