If the Giants do this, the question will be, which cultures will win or lose? It won’t be very hard to predict.

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— 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.

A lone incident involving a protected group sparked this radical change.

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.

It’s funny actually. The Giants got what they wanted — people celebrating a specific culture. Like this, from the same event in 2012.

You get the idea. People in the stands who were wearing the same things that people on the field were wearing in the official program caused a stink.

That turned into a disagreement and now no one gets to play.

But which cultures will win and lose?

It’s San Francisco, remember.

This whole article is a bigot fest and so are many of the comments. The truth is we are NOT a protected group and what is "radical" is trying to give some respect long, long overdue and asked for after a long current and past history of abuses. All designed to eliminate our rights in our motherland.

Thank goodness for hero organizations like the Giants who can do the right thing and seek to make sure all fans are welcome and have a goodtime.

What happened to them was awful and anyone pretending otherwise is a bigoted jerk.
This line:
"People in the stands who were wearing the same things that people on the field were wearing in the official program caused a stink." is especially disgusting and further proves the point of racist ignorance.

Is it really surprising that the same people who took our cultures and regalia as genocidal trophies still seek to justify mocking them and support taking them today? No, but that still doesn't make it right.

People justifying the ugly apathetic person in the stands are the same people who if given the chance today would massacre Native Americans and remove everything they could from the bodies-like they own us even in death-including removing strips of skin, making leather out of our skin, and then using it for a horse bridle like President Andrew Jackson.

I say that because just look at those people supporting removal of sacredness from the living Native Americans.

If you have female ancestors killed or otherwise abused by Indians, can you object to warpaint and tomahawks and demand that any ceremonial activity be limited to non-religious affirmations of environmentalism and women's rights?

And if we are going to let costumed casino operators dance between innings, then why not Italian Americans in full Goodfellas outfits doing SInatra doing Volare? Some Jews doing a number from Fiddler? Call it Let's Pretend We Each Still Live Within our Ethnic Niche Night. And like with the Native Americans we can all clap and offer fake reverence for other cultures that don't exist that way anymore.

Really? Have we heard from the Little People of America about this yet? (yes, it's a real group)

So, if the Chargers come up the coast to play, does that mean the fans can't sing, "Short People" when Mike Tolbert comes on the field?

Doom.
