NCAA Withdraws Championship Tournaments from North Carolina over HB2

NCAA now joined the PC police over bathroom privacy:

The National Collegiate Athletic Association announced Monday that it is cancelling all post-season championship games scheduled for play in North Carolina in response to the state’s controversial transgender bathroom law.

Seven championships or elimination-round games in Division I, II, and III sports have been removed from the state, including two rounds of Division I men’s basketball games—an extremely popular sporting event in North Carolina.

The NCAA specified that “North Carolina has the only statewide law that makes it unlawful to use a restroom different from the gender on one’s birth certificate, regardless of gender identity.”

The law, known as HB2, and its legal ramifications are the basis for the NCAA’s decision. The NCAA also bans championships from states where the government displays the Confederate flag, and schools with “hostile and abusive Native American imagery.”
