Sorry, I don't get this at all. Profiling isn't a default racial issue, it's just smart situational awareness. Usually has nothing to do with race. Turning it into a racial issue is plain stupid. And lets say they're spot-on and really and truly believe Trayvon and a hoodie is all there was to the whole mess - where is the win in encouraging people mess with that alleged stereotype on a night people are already overly sensitive to their kids and needles in candy? *boggles*

Wow, I mean can you think of a better way to profit of the death of a guy AND racism at the same time? This is great, im in the wrong business.
The whole "black people in hoodies=criminal" thing was just something the media just kind of ran with and its stupid.

This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. As someone who likes to wear a hood, I'm glad I'm foreign. Retarded at best.

I think it would be a little scary, I mean call me racist if you want. But if some little white chick came up to me and said "im a black man" and then put her hood up, I would probably try to get away. Who knows what a person like that would do next.

The Martin/Zimmerman incident was from the first moment mis-handled by everyone who was subsequently involved.
That notwithstanding not a word or deed of any positive value has come of it.
In the great grand scheme of things it is a non-issue that has been distorted magnified and exploited by those who would profit by it. { IMO }

People! Bah! Humbug!

I really hope that people go out in hoodies and blackface; collecting candy in KFC buckets.

Why? Because I want this to backfire, big time. Kind of like the movie Bamboozled

Initially the crime wasn't an issue, but after it did become one. people were being discriminated against because they wore hoodies and like it or not, it is a stereotype now. Many people are afraid of people in hoodies, unfortunately, and the theme about that is to try to stop the fear and bigotry associated with.

It's the same thing that happened after columbine when people were getting scared of other people wearing black trench coats.

This is not meant to capitalize off of a person's death, but to to try to address the issue of bigotry and racism.

Please prove your statement or retract it. I've never heard of "hoodies=black". Maybe FUBU hoodies, but that's kind of different.

Maybe you're confusing "Boyz n the Hood" for "Boyz n the Hoodies"?

I'm a naked, old white man? Afraid of me now??

I mean, really.. this 'campaign' is laughable. The Treyvon case was never about racism.. the news ran it as such (especially CNN, who is desperate for ratings) and people of questionable intelligence went along for the ride. When everyone wears their hoodie for a costume, don't forget the Skittles and Iced Tea.

Really this whole thing has just stooped down to a whole new level of ridiculousness.... BTW..... YES I am scared of a black man in a hoodie if he's walking around at night in the summertime with his hood up! Is this some kind of halloween prank or something?

You do. You are, however, an unprincipled hypocrite. You reject logic but use its splendors.

Once again, prove it.


It's the same thing that happened after columbine when people were getting scared of other people wearing black trench coats.


If it's the same thing, then the concern for black trench coats was some sort of racism? Because the trench coats were black?

Doubling down on what you previously said doesn't make it any more true.

Please gentleman lets keep it on topic. We are trying to discuss people with racial identity issues that think wearing a hoodie turns them black.
