I just heard, on NBC radio in my car, that the military will now allow Muslim men to grow beards and the women to wear their headscarves as part of their uniforms. Non-muslims may not. Is this fair?
The reason that we can't have a beard in the military is in case of a chemical or biological attack. The gas mask needs to have a tight seal on the skin for obvious reasons. This being said, there's a double standard going on with our government in many areas and it needs to stop. Muslims should have no rights over non muslims. Black hate crime is just as bad as white hate crime. People feel discriminated against because of the double standard of the last 8 years, justly so.
