Racism: Quebec Soccer Federation sticks to turban ban
The Quebec Soccer Federation says it will uphold its turban ban on the field, and those who don't obey the rules can "play in their backyards."
The federation's executive-director, Brigitte Frot, says the organization takes safety too seriously to allow turban-wearing boys and will only change its stance if ordered to by FIFA, soccer's international governing body.
However, she admits she has no idea what the safety issues are and knows of no injuries involving turbans.
If anything the turbans would protect the head.
Anyway, Brigitte Frot is a racist.
