hoodie

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.

Made and sold by Hiller Armament Company.  $16.50 for 10 targets.  Stay classy guys.

The only thing more hilarious than people making stuff like this up solely to piss people off, is that people will actually but these targets and use them to piss even MORE people off. Quite a first product for Hiller Armament Company to come out with regardless. They really set the bar high for their 2nd product LOL.

I lost interest in that case a long time ago.  What ended up happening?  Did the companies that own Skittles and Arizona Iced Tea see record sales for the past few months?
