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.

    Does that make sense?

    It does, and honestly I probably belabored this discussion far beyond what I had any reason to. Thanks for staying patient.

      Nah all good. Appreciate the conversation. The media is never truly portraying the reality of our society, so important to use your own judgment.
