And, please, don't insult our intelligence and say that you wouldn't, because we all know better.

    Everyone is prejudice. Libbos do more to keep prejudice and racism alive than any other group in this country.
    Psssssst - I'm not going to pull out a gun and shoot him. I won't even care what he looks like as long as he minds his own business and I mind mine. Did Zimmerman do the same?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Actually his point is. is that certain articles of clothing represent a certain element in society, and if you dress like that element, may just end up being viewed and treated as that element.

    His point is reality, right or wrong, it's reality.....

    I didn't realize a simple hoodie was a gangster thing, My last encounter with evil hoodies was white connecticut straight edge kids at the anthrax.... :Shrug:

    a hooded sweatshirt, represents criminals?

    sounds like a pretty ignorant POV.

    If there is a perception that an item of clothing represents something, for example a barbour jacket at an english football game, or a pair of doc martins and a flight jacket on the lower east side, or say a 3 patched jacket while riding a harley....

    all of these things send a message to both within an outlaw society, and to the observers on the outside. If the current trend among people is to view the hoodie as gangster attire, that is the reality, ignorant or not.....

    Geraldo's point is that in current society, in some locations, black men wearing hoodies sends a certain message about who you are. The same way a 4 ft red mohwak might still send a message about who you are....


    One should look at reality over emotion.

    Now do I think Geraldo has taken it to far? perhaps, I wasn't aware the hoodie itself pushed a certain image. but if it does, and this is how kids get judged, his point does make sense. Though again poorly delivered.

    i was on 6th ave and 17th street yesterday.

    and on the F train.

    lots of adults & kids wearing hoodies.

    were they all criminals?

    is it rational & logical for anyone to even assume such a stupid thing?

    It's common sense, I wouldn't expect you to get it, kid. You of course, since you can't actually debate, instead choose to twist words and take context and piss all over it, in order to have a dishonest argument. Sorry, bra, not playin.



    I wear a hoodie. Many people do, however if you dress a certain way, people may just judge you that way. Simple concept, I am sorry it's not simple enough for you.

    calling me a "kid", and then accusing me of not being able to debate, is pretty ****ing ironic.

    stick to the topic, and stop personalizing the debate.
