Pastor Ronald Slaughter wore his Sunday best, plus a white hoodie sweatshirt as he preached his Palm Sunday sermon today.

Slaughter and members of his congregation at St. James AME Church in Newark donned hoodies in honor of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teen gunned down by a neighborhood watch captain last month.

Several congregants wore their hoodies up while others sitting in the pews came in regular dress. Slaughter, who wore a white zipped up hoodie sweatshirt over a shirt and tie, and other church leaders behind the pulpit wore hoodies but did not cover their heads.

Certainly I am no judge to tell anyone anything, however from what I have learned about Martin's behavior and known statements I suspect one would have to take the one-way down elevator to be in solidarity with him

We need to get hoodie manufacturers to put a little reflective tape along the outside of the hood.

“The article helps explain why Newark is such a fetid cesspool.”

The population hasn’t reached the pre-riot levels, and that is now almost 50 years ago. With the exception of some areas where commerce goes on (where there are no hoodies, at least whilre the sun is up), Newark is a reservation for the permanent underclass ringed by suburbs determined to keep their mayhem contained.
