Hoodies Still Problematic 7 Years After Trayvon Martin Death

7 years ago, hoodies became a talking point after Trayvon Martin was shot and killed while wearing one. Unfortunately, the incident hasn't curtailed the racial profiling of black people wearing hooded sweatshirts.

    Most businesses don’t allow hoddies pulled up partly covering your face. Due to video security.

    Zimmerman was attacked hence the reason his face was messed up before he shot, if this was a hate crime Zimmerman wouldn't have been nearly as damaged because he would have just shot the kid before he knew what happened. Quit trying to blame this on a hate crime when the evidence has shown other wise.

    I don't remember Where, or how many decades ago, I bought my hoodie, but today, in 2019, I still wear it. I bought it! It's mine! Therefore, I wear it!

    Until I get evidence proving that it was because they were wearing hoodies, I'm going to assume that it was because they were acting like criminals or just being childish.
