Referee banned after saying girl's hair broke rules

A referee has been banned from officiating in the city of Chesapeake, Virginia after singling out a 10-year-old girl during a basketball game because of the color and texture of her hair. Erica Guerrier said the referee told her 10-year-old daughter that her hair, a typical African American hairstyle with braids with blue weave woven in, was against the rules.
