San Francisco Giants: Special Snowflakes to enforce “culturally sensitive” dress code [Darleen Click]

facepalm

The San Francisco Giants organization is in the final steps of adopting a policy to ban fans from wearing “culturally-insensitive” attire at AT&T Park.

Giants’ Sr. Vice President Staci Slaughter said the Giants are very proud of their diverse fan base, but want fans to respect one another.

“We want to make sure that our fans are respectful of each other and the different backgrounds that everyone comes from,” Slaughter told KCBS on Wednesday. […]

A couple of weeks ago, at AT&T Park’s Native American Heritage Night, two groups of fans had a disagreement over the issue of what should and shouldn’t be worn.

SF Examiner reported two Native American fans asked a third fan, who appeared to be Caucasian, to remove a headdress he was wearing.

Slaughter said the consideration to revise their dress-code policy partly stems from that incident.

The next steps towards implementation would be to communicate new rules with fans and event staff in order to ensure they are properly trained on the issue, Slaughter said.

Cool … so if I see a melanin-enriched person wearing a Claddagh, I can have them tossed out for stealing my Irish culture?

Geez, I wish people would grow up and get over themselves … but I know it won’t be anytime soon.

  1. ****SF Examiner reported two Native American fans asked a third fan, who appeared to be Caucasian, to remove a headdress he was wearing.****

    Like, pronto, Tontowannabe.

  2. Chop.

    Chop.

  3. - Any absurdity or excess is possible in the hell-hole by the sea.

    – This is the shit-pile that spawned San Fran Nan, which is all anyone needs to know to understand this sort of idiocy. The team management is reacting in the usual pearl clutching way to the Redskins scam

    – The Giants org is going to find out that even in the annal retentive head up ass capital of the world their fan base is not as “diverse” as they’d like to pretend. Baseball is already a “soft” sport attendance wise. If they fuck around with the typical baseball fan too much they’ll just stop going to games.

  4. I want to see their attendance figures at the end of the season.

  5. the Giants are very proud of their diverse fan base, but want fans to respect one another

    that’s such a strange locution

  6. Enos would probably be tempted to knock Staci right on her ass, girl or no girl.

  7. Are Mao jackets acceptable?

  8. Are Mao jackets acceptable?

    Soon enough they will likely be mandatory.

  9. If you bring a Tribal ID, is it still wrong to dress up in redface?

  10. >If you bring a Tribal ID<

    can you wear redskins stuff?

  11. That’s what I want to know. Is it okay to bring a tomahawk, since it’s culturally appropriate?

  12. That’s what I want to know. Is it okay to bring a tomahawk, since it’s culturally appropriate?

    No, nor can you bring a Pop-Tart chewed in the shape of a tomahawk, nor a drawing of one, nor making a shadow appearing to be one as they also have a zero-tolerance for anything resembling any kind of weapon.

  13. > a zero-tolerance for anything resembling any kind of weapon.<

    tie some condoms together and choke an illiberal

  14. Well, that’s just ridiculous, Eingang. The next thing you know, they’ll stop selling beer.

  15. The next thing you know, they’ll stop selling beer.

    No, they’ll still sell beer, but only to minors and adults who can prove that they came by mass transit, high speed rail, or drove an electric car.

  16. We can be sure they’ll never stop selling tube steaks.

  17. can i bring my squaw to the game?

  18. We can be sure they’ll never stop selling tube steaks.

    Yoiks – you know, that means different things in different parts of the country, and I reckon in SF one, were one so inclined, get them steamed for free in any number of bathhouses.

  19. Isn’t naming your team after a genetic condition which causes early death and much personal suffering a bit insensitive?

  20. didn’t the capitalists in sf steal the team from nyc

  21. Isn’t naming your team after a genetic condition which causes early death and much personal suffering a bit insensitive?

    Indeed, not to mention San Fransisco, the name of a saint, and yet it is a municipal stadium paid for with tax dollars so there is no separation of church and state there, huh. What of the Conquistadors who gave the name to San Fransisco – there was a bunch of Native American (or would they have been Native Nueva Espanans) killers.

  22. give nyc their genetic defects back now!!11!!

  23. Yoiks

    Hey! Myron Cope inna house!

  24. So I guess the Village People doing an event at a Giants game is out of the question now? It seemed like such a good fit!

  25. I once blundered into the Folsom Street festival…I saw a lot of culturally insensitive shit.

  26. >I saw a lot of culturally insensitive shit.<

    illiberal land's no. 1 export.

  27. “That’s what I want to know. Is it okay to bring a tomahawk, since it’s culturally appropriate?”

    I guess they’ll have to ban the Atlanta Braves from visiting as well.

  28. Inter-league play is out too, Danger.

    The visage of Chief Wahoo grinning at the fans might be too much.

  29. SF Examiner reported two Native American fans asked a third fan, who appeared to be Caucasian, to remove a headdress he was wearing.

    Pardon my French, ladies, but: How the fuck are they going to know if that Caucasian isn’t legally an Injun? Look at when tribal leaders get interviewed – some of them are whiter than me [and I’m fluorescent].

  30. hopefully the headdress guy told the indians to go fuck themselves

    this way everyone would have learned something from the experience

  31. As a hard-core Anglo with a proud WASP heritage, I need to speak up the next time I see a hispanic or black person in Dockers, Vans, or a polo shirt. For the diversity.

  32. To think that Martin Luther King Jr. spoke so eloquently, struggled so long, and died so a bunch of naive self important coffee sippers could dress funny and spend all their free time pointing at each other and whining “Stop copying me! Stop copying me! Stop copying me! “

  33. ““That’s what I want to know. Is it okay to bring a tomahawk, since it’s culturally appropriate?””

    Nope. You have to stick to your heritage so bring a bill if your anglo or an angon if yer germanic. Or a fire-hardened stick with tar on one end if you’re scotch Irish. And if you’re Mandarin you can bring a nine-ring sword, ya lucky duck.

    If you’re Hungarian then bring goulash. If your a stinkin’ Bo then bring some paper towels.

    If you are adescended from a biker gang then bring a ka-bar and a brass skull on the end of a steel chain. I saw that in a movie once and it was COOL.

  34. If you are descended from a hiker gang then bring a pair of lava domes and a cliff bar.

    If you are descended from Athena then bring an owl , shave your head, and start a folk rock band in Athen’s Gerogia.
