I went to a gig last night at the Manchester Academy, a pretty standard Manchester November night brings with it rain. lots of rain. Being an idiot who wears a coat without a hood and to prevent a Diana Ross 80s Hair incident I often cover my hair with a scarf.
She rocks the big hair – I don’t.
I was asked to remove it before entering the Academy, while people in hats were not. I did of course, but I must’ve looked at the security guy in an odd way as he said to me ‘don’t blame me, blame the ISIS cunts’.
Taking it off was not a problem for me, but some people wear them for religious reasons. Although I understand the need for heightened security measures after recent events surely if heads are not to be covered this should be in any form. Hat, Hood, Scarf, whatever.
I’d just like to point out that nobody checked my bag, not even a glance in it. Obviously if I was to sneak something in it would be on my head right?
Have we gone back to the times of judging people by their race? We should not Discriminate against people because of their clothing.
We should all have to abide by the same rules.
One of the best things about Music is that it is inclusive. It has the ability to bring together a variety of people who’s paths may never have crossed without it.
Music doesn’t discriminate.
