Check this out: A Headdress Ban Disqualified in Intl. Basketball Competition

Seriously, what next? Why do we live in a world of “no”?

Why the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) bans headscarves makes no sense. They say it creates unsafe conditions on the courts.

Do you see these headscarves? This photo above is actually from 2011. More recently, activewear clothing companies have designed even tighter-fitting headscarves to meet the headgear regulations by the FIBA board.

So the fact that FIBA keeps their stance is cause for concern. The list of directors is not listed on their website, only offering that the headquarters are based in Mies, Switzerland.

Smells like religious discrimination to me……….. get over it, already!
