Halloween Hoodie Campaign

Trying to answer the question: Is a black man in a hoodie really that scary?

Take a stand against stereotypes. Wear a hoodie for Halloween.

Yea real classy and creative to basically go as Trayvon Martin for Halloween.  The only thing more controversial would be going as George Zimmerman complete with prop handgun.

Maybe I’m just slow, but is this campaign trying to say that Trayvon was just some innocent kid out for a walk, and that he didn’t do anything to Zimmerman?  I’m so sick of hearing about those two people.

As far as people in hoodies being “scary”… if someone was coming at me with their hood up or any other method of obscuring their face I would definitely have my guard up.

Thoughts?  Anyone going to do this dumbass idea for Halloween? After looking at the youtube channel that put this out, it appears to just be some guy that is trying to stir the pot.

That’s what I was wondering. I figured we wouldn’t have to hear any more about it until the trial was over.

Nothing man… It lost a bunch of steam and media attention in exchange for the 15yr old slut who killed herself because she was bullied by the girlfriend of the boy she hooked up with. But yeah… That case is a dead end, and the media cant do much more to spin it due to the legality of the shooting. Unless Florida went back in time or retroactively changed laws, the case was just a bunch of hype.

so stupid..
As long as you are not on top of me smashing my head into a sidewalk, no I am not afraid of you.

If you are on top of me smashing my head into the sidewalk, trying to kill me, I don’t care if you are white, black, green, orange, opaque, from Saturn, Mars, whatever. Result me not be to your liking.

Hooded sweatshirt when it is cold and wet – usually no problem.

Hooded sweatshirt when it is 105°F and 80% humidity – I am not the one with the problem.

Wish liberal dumbasses would do their fucking research on this case. At least three credible eyewitnesses saw Martin jump Zimmerman, Martin started beating his head into the concrete, then Zimmerman shot him. If you’re dumb enough to attack someone who isnt threatening you, then you deserve to be shot.

So… are they going to try and cave someone’s skull in like Treyvon? Cuz, I haven’t had it happen to me, but getting my head pounded into the ground would scare me. Just sayin’…

Just a very dumb idea. Do the idiots wearing the costume have a response for who they are?

Hhhmm, one of those guys, the white guy with the shades looked like the Unabomber. Yeah, I am afraid of people in hoodies, but not if their hot and carrying a baby. Otherwise shoot first…shoot after they are on top of you giving you a beat down. That is a “weapons free” situation.
