I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin's death as George Zimmerman was....
But I'll bet you money, if he didn't have that hoodie on, that nutty neighborhood watch guy wouldn't have responded in that violent and aggressive way.....
It’s those crime scenes, surveillance tapes, every time you see someone sticking up a 7-11 the kid is wearing a hoodie, every time you see a mugging on a surveillance camera or they get the old lady in the alcove it’s a kid wearing a hoodie. You have to recognize that this whole stylizing yourself as a gansta, you’re gonna be a gangsta wanna be? Well people are going to perceive you as a menace. That’s what happens. It is an instant reflexive action
The bottom line is: We should all be far more aware of how our clothes are represented in the media, whether it's on the news, a movie or any other outlet.
That's why I put together this nifty DO NOT WEAR list to help keep you safe from becoming a victim! Wouldn't want your clothes to scream "I'm guilty! Murder me!", now would ya?
Everyday Attire/ Blue Collar Clothes
And the worst possible thing ever to wear ever...
This is just a short list of clothing that has some sort of negative image attached to it through the news, media, movies and more. There are countless other outfits that I recommend you not wear, as to not draw unnecessary attention to yourself. If you choose to wear any of these clothes, remember, you are willfully accepting any and all morals of any bad individual that ever did anything bad or dangerous while wearing one.
It's probably just better to go naked.
You've been warned!
