Sorry, I’ve seen too many of those things worn by criminals that the mere sight of one gives me the shivers. It reminds me of the bad old days in NYC when some brat was coming towards me doing the “pimp roll.”
Geraldo is right. The same way a mother is right when she tells her daughter either to not dress provocatively or avoid areas where dressing provocatively causes trouble (i.e.construction sites).
Like Rush, I live in Realville.
I agree with you that the image you wish to portray comes out loud and clear in your clothing whether it’s a hoody and gangster garb or a dress that is slit up to your waist. However, Geraldo is missing a bigger point which should be the breakdown of the black American family. Too many fathers are not truly parenting their kids and the poor kids are the worse off for it. Where’s Bill Cosby when you need him? Where’s the leadership in the black community?
Agree with you! My first thought would be the same, until I get more information that proves otherwise, such as getting closer, looking at the person sufficiently close, perhaps briefly talking to them, have they traveled this route before, crime in the area, weather conditions, commonly traveled by other ppl to get to the store, etc.
When I see someone wearing one of these is when I get the shivers.

Are you serious? Really?
If so, you’ve got a very real problem (read paranoia). How do you feel about Poodle skirts or Go-Go Boots?
