A rec center in North Carolina is facing much backlash after it placed a ban on dreadlocks and weaves. Covert racism, not so covert though…
People on social media have called the center out…
One person posted a photograph of the pool rules for the Outdoor Recreation Center in Wendell on Sunday. One rule says “no baggy pants, no dread-locks/weaves/extensions or revealing clothes will be permitted or you will be asked to leave.”
Revealing clothes??? It’s a fucking swimming pool!!! What are people supposed to wear, jeans???
More people on social media spoke out against the pool…
“Is this really allowed in Wendell!!!” wrote Nikki Harris on the Wendell NC Community Connections Facebook group.
“Definitely racial discrimination! Never will see me there!!” another user wrote.
The punk ass pool owner claims that hair extensions are banned because they can get into pumping equipment, causing an “automatic shutdown of 3 days or more…” But what about dreadlocks and baggy pants???
Other social media posts featured screenshots appearing to show a very idiotic apology from the Outdoor Recreation Center.
“Due to ignorance of the meaning of the word dread-locks, ORC rules should have stated NO artificial hair,” information on the posts said.
Whose ignorance??? The perpetrators of this sign are the ones ignorant to the culture of dreadlocks!!!
Some dumb ass people defended the recreation center and its rules…
“If you don’t like the rules then don’t go! This is a private business and it’s within their rights to make the rules,” Ann Honeycutt wrote on Facebook. “Unless you own a business of this type you can’t know what problems they have had that prompted the owners to make these rules.”
