People can be exposed to danger,
in circumstances that show no reason for fear whatsoever.
Anyway, that is how I found it to be.
Danger can be unrelated to fear.

Hoods can make good masks,
for purposes of identity concealment.
Sometimes, violent criminals prefer to remain anonymous.

I 'm not really at issue here.
I 'm OK with my security; I have been for a long time.

If only 1 out of 1OOO rocks has a predator under it, that 's OK,
unless your loved one ventures too close to the predator.
Maybe u don't care what happens to your loved ones ?

Your theory is that thay cannot
be exposed to danger as long as thay feel safe, right ????

I hope that will protect them from falling victim to violent robbers or to passion-driven offenders.

FOR THE RECORD:
Nothing that I 've posted in support of the right to self defense
opposes wearing hoods. Tho I 've never actually done it,
I see nothing rong with wearing hoods.

I wonder how the Sheriff of Nottingham felt about that.
Maybe Izzy can check into that.

Yeah, thay can be important.
In 1972, lightning struck about 1 yard in front of me,
as I was walking forward, toward my car, at the time.

No, the lightning was too fast; it got away.

The notion that “hoodies” don’t carry a very clear and designed connotation is ridiculous and those in this forum who are suggesting the same are either very closeted or disingenuous.

I think you post says it ALL.
"Black man" is scary.

It has nothing to do with the hoodie.

Probably it was attracted to you by all that metal in your gun(s).

What bad luck is it that, of all the lightning bolts in all the world, David happened to get the one with bad aim?

Well, after decades and centuries of experience with them,
we know that most blacks r not dangerous,
but we also know that if u r gonna fall victim to criminal violence,
the odds r high that a black will be the perp, not a white nor a Chinaman.

When I was practicing law, every morning arriving in court,
it looked like a slave auction: the bailiffs made very long daisy chains
of prisoners on their way to arraignment, chained wrist-to-wrist-to-wrist.
Once in a while there was a white among them, who really stood out.

@Setanta,
True and "hoodies" have nothing what-so-ever to do with it then or now.

@djjd62,
Unfortunately, a very large segment of America is not quite as hip as you dj, and when they see images of scowling men in "hoodies" who sing of killing cops and nailing ho's they fret.

Damn their bigotry!

Your Nanna is a perfect example of the person the kids wearing gangsta clothes want to feel uncomfortable and even afraid. They may have absolutely no intention of harming your Nanna but they get a kick out of upsetting the older generation; especially if they are white.

This is not unique to black kids of today, it is typical of teenagers in general and over decades.

No, your post doesn't literally say that. But with self-deluded, sophistic racists like you it's a must to read between the lines...

and from all you've said here it's clear you think Trayvon is somehow partially to blame for his own killing.

@sozobe,
I'm sure your denial of the facts helps you feel enlightened, so keep on keep'n on.

You've convinced me, there is absolutely no reason in the world for someone to buy into an image many young people are trying to convey.

Next time someone feels uncomfortable in the presence of a yound man emulating Tupac, all the teen need do is hand out the images you've graciously provided and all will be well.

And when I walk in the streets of Harlem with a bald head, leather jacket and hob nail boots, all I need do when the residents take umbrage is show them pictures of Yul Brynner, Tuskeege Airmen and mountain climbers.

@snood,
See, that's the thing, Snood, it just ain't as clear as each side makes it out to be. I've seen an awful lot of this; "when evidence clearly suggests ... ."
