Maybe Hoodies ARE a bad idea to wear out and about!
A white middle aged woman who I know, mother of a college boy, who does a 7-11 kinda job says in her predominantly WHITE PART OF TOWN, too many WHITE boys wear hoodies, and the ones suspected of shoplifting tend to wear them.
She says they wear them close so not to be identified to the cash register cameras. She wont serve them until they pull their hoodies down and sunglasses off, so she can see their faces for purchases, along with the cameras.
She's very adamant that kids wearing hoodies are trying not to be identified in her camera controlled non QT convenience store. Her view is that they are up to no good!
