Skip to comments.Awww…Missouri Muslim refused service at Credit Union because she wouldn’t remove her headbag
Posted on 06/29/2013 2:00:11 AM PDT by Morgana
Adiaratou Sall of Hazelwood says after ten years of banking with the Gateway Metro Credit Union she was refused service, for the first time ever, because she was wearing a headbag. Tellers wanted it removed for security reasons.
KSDK The credit union says it has had a policy for years of no sunglasses, hats or hoods. Because of recent robberies the credit union is enforcing the policy more strictly. But Sall says she can vote, get a drivers license and go through airport security with the same scarf and wants to know why banking should be any different. I feel hurt, big time and violated, says Sall. Its who I am. (Oh, boo hoo)

If this is going to be acceptable as a part of discrimination in the future we should all where bags on our heads, all of us. Use the stupidty against them and thier supporters
Plastic or paper is what I want to know!!
Head BAG??? That’s what they’re called now? Not a shoulder bag? A head bag?
Most robbers don’t hold up polling places, airports or DMV offices.
I have a feeling she really, really needs a headbag, if ya’ know what I mean.
And what does that tell us about the state of affairs we are in?
Political correctness has run amok. There should never have been an exception made for head covering that in any way conceals facial features or pertinent physical characteristics.
But it is the old story of permitting the camel to put its nose inside your tent. Very shortly, the tent is occupied only by the camel, which proceeds to tear the tent apart.
And you are standing out in the cold of the desert night.
Quit feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeling so much.
What the He!! is a “headbag?”
Time to start ASSIMILATING, or just continue being, well.....
Good point Adiaratou - we’ll have to do something about letting people walk away with a driver’s license while they have a bag over their head, and of course voting with one over their head too. Thanks for bringing the inconsistency to our attention.
It may be a federal rule for federal credit unions. And if the rule applies to everybody it is evidently not discrimination.

I have seen the sign at banks, don’t know if it is an option or a ‘catchall’.
I always wear a cap and sunglasses and haven’t been asked to remove them. Of course I am at the age where they think I am ‘cute’, then again I don’t normally frequent banks where I am not ‘known’.
Also, my sunglasses are prescription so I guess if asked to take them off I should start ‘stumbling’ around and walking into things (my sight is no where near that bad, but as the LIBS say, no sense having a ‘situation’ if you can’t exploit it and make the other guy either look bad or ‘feel sorry’ for you.).
Good headbag story. Probably see more headbags.
As an aside, you'll enjoy this. Last week, at the local convenience store, I'm buying a Powerball ticket. The clerk is a very young female.. maybe 18..somewhat ditzy in appearance..and she asks me for my DOB..which is rather odd..I don't think she's hitting on me..I'm 66, so I ask her WHY?..and she looks at me and brightly says "you have to be 18 to play the lottery."
Heh. I’ve been having fun lately asking to see the clerk’s ID. “Are you old enough to sell me alcohol? Can I see your ID?”
No one expects that.
In Publix..they’ll randomly ask to see your drivers license when you’re buying alcohol..the computer tells them when to ask for it..this way they can’t be accused of profiling..Publix has a great many employees under the age of 21, and every time I’m buying beer or wine there, and the cashier is under 21, they will call over someone else over 21 to ring up the purchase.
.and she looks at me and brightly says “you have to be 18 to play the lottery.”

I was coming out of WALMART with a case of O’Douls and the clerk - a 20 something White Guy - asked for my ID, I naturally assumed it was because I don’t autograph credit cards but I was swiping..so when I asked why, he replied ‘we check EVERYONE when alcohol is involved...I said that is NON ALCOHOL beer’, and I won’t reveal my age BUT my first FICA withholding was 1953 ... so my retort when asked is “You have got to be working for tips”, I realize that I am not the person I see in the mirror every morning but have been told enough that I look no where near my age I am starting to believe it....
Tough xxxxxxx $h!t. It’s who we are.
see my #21 above..
Geez..remember the days of 3.2 beer?
Oh yes...I ‘grew up’ in NY State and we could drink beer at 18 and there was ‘always’ an older looking kid plus playing sports in a small town/high school 18 year olds were always around to supply our ‘alcohol needs’ to us.
But in ‘those days’ school kids and teenagers were ‘kept in line’ by the whole town and since 1 coach did all 3 sports and summer baseball, there wasn’t much we could really ‘get away with’, no matter how much we thought we were....
I like to think that HRC meant the above scenario in her “It takes a Village” nonsense but she was going much much further than that....
There are signs at the entrance of some shops in town reading: “If you come in wearing a hoody the police will be called.”
As long as the credit union is enforcing the no hats or hoods policy equally then I don’t see where she has anything to complain about...other than for the sake of complaining.
In 1965...there was a huge story..5 HS kids from Greenwich were killed in a car crash on I-95..they’d been drinking at their parents homes..CT raised the age to 21 soon after. NYS didn’t for a while..and Vista, NY ( just over the line from Fairfield) soon had one traffic light, and about 15 bars and liquor stores..
You (WE) could be home free if just take that bag and a grease pencil and write “I AM MUSLIM” on it and enjoy the best of both worlds.
Also add ‘Allahu Akbar’ to be more convincing.
Muslims only think of themselves first.. others last!
Too bad it wasn’t a plastic bag...pulled tightly over her empty, whiny moozlum head.
I think headbag is the websites term. If you watch the video clip she was wearing one of those headscarfs that cover her head except for the face and not one of those KKK-type coverings that only have a mesh to see out of. Regardless, the credit union has a policy and they are enforcing it. She was not singled out because she was Muslim. It’s a safety issue for the employees at the branch and if she doesn’t like it she’s free to take her business elsewhere. But she should probably avoid banks that were robbed recently and who have heightened their security.

I am talking ‘53, ‘54’ 55 further up Rt22, Dover Plains, right across the CT line and Kent....just a hop skip and jump, as the crow flies.
Hey,consider yourself lucky.You seem to be aging far more gracefully than most of us.Or is it that the clerk had the IQ of a bag of rocks?
Off with her head !
“Also, my sunglasses are prescription so I guess if asked to take them off ...”
Since your glasses are Rx you should be able to still wear them just remove the hat. They can still tell who you are. “He was the dude wearing the Rx sunglasses”. Yea makes them easier to find you should, and heaven forbid you hold up the bank.
. But Sall says she can vote, get a drivers license and go through airport security with the same scarf and wants to know why banking should be any different.
It should not be different. No way should you be able to get a drivers license or go through airport security with your head covered.
Yea makes them easier to find you should, and heaven forbid you hold up the bank.

Granted when I go into a bank I have the ‘equipment’ to certainly do that BUT I also have the ‘equipment’ to commit rape and like robbing the bank, that hasn’t really crossed my mind as the ‘way to go’.
People don’t want to follow the lobby rules, use the out of lobby ATM or the drive through.
No car, no problem, we will GIVE you one just so you don’t have to be inconvenienced and take of your FACE COVERINGS.
And with risking the chance of being accused of ‘jumping the gun’, she says she has a drivers license and she is at the bank, I will go out on a limb and say she may have driven to the bank.
“They” used to ‘mock’ the Nuns Habit but, for the greater part, one could see her face.
Yeah, and I want to fly somewhere without being fondled. But because of bagheads I can’t.
I've had the same thing happen to me at the Walmart self-check lines. Apparently, it's incorrectly coded as alcohol, so the system freezes until the attendant checks your age. I've asked them a few times why this is so since anyone can buy no-alcohol beer and the only response I've gotten in reply is "I don't know."
The Old Drovers Inn in DP was a fave of mine..as was the CIA..and The Bird in the Bottle
Very often it's an improvement.
I’m going to look for opportunities to play that. Thanks, consider it appropriated.
“Non-alcohol beer” is a misnomer. It still has alcohol in it, but only a very tiny amount.
The purpose is so the security cameras get a better picture.
Go find another bank. Geez
So little that your bladder would burst before you got drunk.
back in the 50’s as a teen I worked as a cashier in a grocery store. we had to also have the assistance manager ring up any beer or wine that came through our register line....not a new thing...
A couple of time, heck yes. Something like .5% or something. But, “technically” it’s still beer for the purposes of taxation and regulation.
