Discrimination by other means?

February 12, 2007

Tonight I went to an un-named bar. I was wearing a red poof ball hat. (think South Park) Upon entering the establishment I was instructed to remove my beanie. I asked why and was told that the following are not allowed: bandanas, dew-rags, beanies, and backward caps. I have no idea why. I almost told the bouncer to go-to-hell, but my friend was particularly thirsty and I retreated to comb my hair. It was a dive bar and my only speculation is that they wanted to harass groups that are known for wearing: bandanas, dew-rags, beanies and backward caps. Any thoughts on other reasons?
