About Those Hoodies

Since the lamestream media has sensationalized the death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, much has been said about young people wearing their ‘hoodies.’ Race baiter extreme Jesse Jackson is now urging Black Youth’s to wear their hoodies up to vote. The implication being that Black youth’s wearing ‘hoodies’ are automatically suspected of wrong doing.

Such suspicions are not restricted to Black Youth, though. The Department of Homeland Security launched a campaign, “If You See Something, Say Something” that shows a series of Whites with ‘hoodies’ up, all engaged in suspicious activity, as seen in the video below.

How is that we are to now view ‘hoodies up’ as innocent when the government is who is planting in our heads that doing so is suspicious?

No, it doesn’t release George Zimmerman from responsibility, but it does shed a little light that even though the Obama Administration has expressed discontent with what we are being led to believe happened in Sanford, Florida, they are also who is inciting people to be suspicious of people wearing ‘hoodies up!!’

I have a jacket with a hood and it's handy on a windy, cold or rainy days. In nice weather, The hood is not used. Those who shuffle about with their baggy pants with crotches to the knees with hoddies up on nice days are loser morons.

Hence the perception today that they are up to no good.

I believe the Trayvon Martin shooting was hand picked. Obama has assured that race relations are at a stand still in this country and he dares not condemn the NBPP for placing a bounty on the head of a citizen and does not condemn any of the black calls for violence against white people.

"Just because you wear a hood(ie) doesn't make you a hood(lem)!"

Then what, pray tell, is the derivation of the word hood(lem)? Often hoodlems are just called hoods -- and I'm thinking the word came from them wearing hoods. Its kind of a duh.

There are a few different uniforms for criminals. Shirtlessness walking around on the street or while driving generally indicates you're a criminal (just watch the show COPS) and so does wearing a hood.

Wow, Little Red Riding Hood was actually a criminal!

Who'd a thunk it?

I guess the word "riding" somehow alludes you.

I guess the depictions of her with a red hood over head is too far over your head?

By the way, "Origin of HOODLUM
perhaps from German dialect (Swabia) hudelum disorderly
First Known Use: 1871"

Little Red Riding Hood came out in 1697.
