the only way you would be attacked for what color you are wearing is if you are flossin it. Cocking your colored hat to the side or sporting a flag
Okay, I have no idea where you may live or what your personal experience and background may be for being in gang infested areas on a regular basis
but I found an example with just a moment or so looking.
Authorities believe a Central California man was simply wearing the wrong color when he was shot and killed in what police say was a gang-related
Twenty-four-year-old Roger Weinert of Visalia was wearing a red jacket when he was fatally shot on Jan. 8 while walking to a relative's house.
Visalia police say Weiner did not belong to a gang, but that the color red is the chosen color of a local street
As a produce trucker for most of my adult life, I was in and out of the nation's major cities on a regular basis. Usually, for whatever reason, in
the worst areas of them. Specifically, Visalia is where this happened and thats a town I've been in, through and picking up produce around countless
times over years of running the California produce sheds for loads coming back to Missouri.
I make no claims as to how frequently it happens or how many places it's actually a threat as opposed to caution. However, I assure you, I'm
exaggerating nothing in saying it happens to 100% innocent people. This I found online with my first search string and in the first set of results.
I've read many more in local papers and USA today shorts in the national section over the years to add to it. It's a dangerous world out there in
some places and sometimes? Just wearing a red jacket down the street is enough to be killed for.
