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.

    It's pretty rare that Caucasian women in hoodies Perform armed robberies. Where I live in New York an African American with a hoodie walked into a crowded gas station convenience store and held the person behind the counter at gunpoint and demanded the cash and then walked out calmly with his illegal gun. He was apprehended hours later. African Americans and Spanish Descendants commit most of the crime in urban areas

    Hoodie was a excuse for murder. It was never a talking point until Travon was murdered. Zimmeman used it as a excuse. Hoodie ?????

    I suppose you could similarity profile those who commit white collar crime. The world is this way for specific reasons.

    This proviling never should've begun and why is it stil happening. How long has hoodies been around? So now thers an issue on what a black person or anybody wear, who made this rule, who judges the bank robber when wearing a hoodie and mask? Discrimination of color was long gone. Those people are ansestors,why is this still going on,who gave these people thats making these decisions and causing these problems that right to handle business in that manner? And the police as well all over the nation need to obide by the rules of the job as well. Stop bringing this mess back up. People is people no matter what race we are. With this past shit going on,look at what the kids are seeing. It is too many interacial relationships here to be prejudice.

    I guess we are supposed to ignore the black cops in that video or other facts of each case.

    It's sad that certain white folks still trying to run our life's. I say if they can do what they want to do, why not us to.
