Gee. I thought I was in a typical Florida neighborhood. Lots of my neighbors have numerous tatoos and we all have hoodies. Maybe it's an age thing and olders are stereotyping youngers????? Maybe this is an old v. young stereotyping. Ya'll don't know much about Florida culture. You definitely know zip about fashion trends. I have a Mongoose bicycle with a skull on it and roses. Does that make me a gang member? No. It's not my favorite thing about the bicycle but I'm not going to paint over it. I think the skull thing started in Mexico and I'm not a huge fan but ya'll ever get out much culturewise?

I wanted a 20 inch bike instead of a bigger one. True dat. Yo, leave the brothers alone.

They're not all gang culture. THEY PLAY FOOTBALL and SING IN BOY BANDS.

I hope I'm not honing in on the problem. BWPS.

BWPS = black while playing sports.

Is that the only venue where we will accept them??????????????????

They're not all gang culture.

I agree with that completely. What I disagreed with was somebody posting three photos of someone that didn't show his inner wrist as proof that he didn't have a tattoo on his inner wrist. She'd done it on a previous thread and I'd pointed out to her that her photos didn't show his inner wrist, but she posted the photos as 'proof' again.

The photos she posted also didn't show his right upper arm (he's wearing a shirt in all three photos, and you can't even see his right arm in one photo), so they can't 'prove' he didn't have a tattoo on his right upper arm.

Do you understand?

As far as I know, Trayvon posted a photo of somebody else's tattoo - at least the upper arm one - on his MySpace page. I'm not claiming that tattoo is his, or that having the tattoo makes him a gang member or a bad kid.

I am stating that Alice In Wonderland's photos don't clear up the question of his tattoos at all. I have problems with Zimmerman 'supporters' on here claiming Martin weighed 200 lbs. - I've called them out based on the police report. I have problems with Martin 'supporters' on here posting photos as 'proof' when they don't prove what they're posted to prove. . . and then posting them again after it's already been explained to them that they aren't proof of no tattoos.

Does that make sense?
