We all know Muslum women are required by faith to cover their bodies. A Public Pool in France has baned women from wearing "burquini" (which is a loose fitting full body swimsuit) in the pool. They cited that NO loose fitting clothing including "Surfing" Shorts are permited in the pool so this isn't actually discrimination... However I don't see how they can say that with a straight face... I will post the link for the article below...
But what are your thoughts? Is this discrimination? Or Not??

I think this actually upsets me more because France has one of the largest Muslim populations in Western Europe. I mean, discrimination is NEVER okay, but when those being discriminated on are very few in number it tends to breed mis-understanding and at least makes discrimination understandable. But there are an estimated 5 MILLION Muslims in France. Their population is only over shadowed by the Roman Catholics... So that doesn't even make in comprehensible that something like this would be taking place. That would be like making the wearing of a cross illegal or something here... Are you kidding?
