Geraldo Rivera said that Trayvon Martin's hoodie killed him as surely as George Zimmerman's gun did. Lots of people have taken to blaming Martin's wardrobe for his death, in fact. This tumblr is here to expose the notion that hoodies are for thugs as victim-blaming propaganda.
The way I dress elicits several responses from different types of people. I notice how people react to me when I am wearing a hoodie, especially when I tell them that I happen to also be a director.
That reaction is a whisper to racism. Not what I am wearing.
What was George Zimmerman wearing when he shot Trayvon Martin? Did his outfit contribute to his paranoia and vigilantism? Discussing the hoodie is as ridiculous as trying to come up with an answer to that question.
