NCAA Ends North Carolina HB2 Bill Boycott

The NCAA just lifted a 6 month long ban from holding championship events in the state of North Carolina according to the NY Post. The organization practiced the boycott after North Carolina passed the HB2 bill, which allowed discrimination against LGBT individuals and restricted them to use the bathroom for the gender they were assigned with at birth.

Well now, North Carolina has repealed the bill, kinda. In the repeal, local governments are barred from passing their own ordinances on the topic until 2020, it left regulation of bathrooms up to the state Legislature. They’ve basically swept the issue aside and on to the state for later. Interesting.

Anyhow, the NCAA says it’s all good and they’re really to ball again, since North Carolina has “minimally achieved a situation where we believe N.C.A.A. championships may be conducted in a nondiscriminatory environment”, according to the New York Post.
