This is how atheists are handled in the Brazos Valley. Shame on you, KAMU.

KAMU, the local PBS station for Bryan/College Station, Texas, decided to skip over us entirely in this year's parade. I unfortunately didn't see the replay of last year's parade, so I don't know if they missed us then too. They also didn't mention our full band name, the Brazos Valley Atheist Vuvuzela Marching Band. They specifically left out atheist.

I know for a fact they had plenty of time to film us. The camera pointed at us for a good ten seconds, then panned up to the Nissans, then quickly skipped over us to show the tractor. Also, notice how the sound was cut. You don't hear our full rendition of Jingle Bells, including the dashing through the snow part nor the World Cup-style mini-blast at the end of the song.

This is the exact reason we need to keep showing up. We need to show atheists are a part of the community and we enjoy the winter holidays as much as anyone else!
