Specifically because I live in a hot climate, I’m always fighting the feeling of being suspicious of anybody I pass in the streets with a hoodie pulled up. I feel guilty because of racial profiling associated with hoodies, but gotta protect myself and my family, especially because in many cases the perpetrators of assault and murder seen in media are somebody with a hood and/or mask on.

    What does the color of the hoodie have to do with anything? 🤨

      In a hot climate, a black hoodie is going to be less likely a casual outfit than a lighter coloured hoodie

      it’s just a common color in general and a common color in videos of people wearing hoodies and committing crimes. it’s easier to blend in with a dark colored hoodie than a brightly colored one i suppose.
