Sad when we even have to worry, isn't it? What right does anyone have to attack another person over the color of a shirt or the hand signs..even if they ARE exactly what the person thinks they are?
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 (bandana).
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 shooting.
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 gang.
