Last month, a young girl was denied the opportunity to play at a youth soccer game because of her colorful bows and hair clips. The 6-year-old Hope Mills resident arrived at a park on Monday, September 18, alongside her father to take part in a recreation soccer game. But she was not allowed to join the other children as the league noted her hair clips were against the rule. Even though her father tried to explain that the colorful accessories were actually a requirement to hold her hair in place, parks and recreation officials did not even budge.

"My husband even asked them, 'what needs to be removed so that she can play?' He was like, 'and how about this, we'll take it as a warning about her hair, let her play the game next game, we'll know what to do,'" revealed the girl's mother Darialle Marshmon. But to the family's dismay, no one was interested in resolving the issue and letting the kid play. "Nobody even offered a solution for her to play in her game," she added.
