Hoodies →

I love hoodies. They are extremely warm and comfortable. In fact, I am wearing one today. It’s overcast outside, with a high temperature in the mid–50s – perfect hoodie weather.

Will you indulge me in a simple thought exercise? Imagine that the young man in the above photo – the one wearing the hoodie – left from his father’s girlfriend’s house during halftime of the NBA All-Star game. He walked from that house, located in a gated community, to a local 7–11 convenience store. There he purchased an iced tea and a bag of Skittles.

Good write up by Jeremy Gibbs about the young man killed in Sanford, Florida while wearing a hoodie. Well worth the read.
