IS IT SAFE TO WEAR MY HOODIE?

 

The hoodie has become a symbol of the successful (Mark Zuckerberg), the criminal (see any intercity cop show) and the tragic in the most recent case of Trayvon Martin.  This young man found out that depending on when and where it is worn, a hoodie can put you in harm’s way.  We are told it is wrong to profile.  But we do it every day, and are foolish if we do not.  Read my new column about the confrontations that can be caused by a hoodie, and my own personal experience.  Murders take place in this country every day.  Why so much focus n the Martin case?  You can read it now by Clicking Here or by gong to the Flashing Red Box above.
