Remember 'See Something, Say Something?'
President Barack Obama's Dept. of Homeland Security certainly stereotyped the hoodie.
People are talking about this particular garment because some believed it led neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman to make an assumption about Trayvon Martin. Martin was wearing a hoodie and Zimmerman thought him a suspicious presence in the neighorhood. The story, as we all know, ended in unspeakable tragedy.
Left of center pundit Geraldo Rivera dared to say something about the hoodie stereotype and he was promptly attacked by his fellow Leftists.
Obama and DHS chief Janet Napolitano appear to have a hoodie issue of their own. What's that all about? In one sense, Zimmerman was simply following DHS' advice.
