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