Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) was one of several speakers at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth undergraduate commencement that took place this Sunday. Frank was also one of two people that received the Chancellor's Distinguished Service Medal at the event.
However, Congressman Frank made a controversial comment about Hubie Jones, a black recipient of an honorary doctorate, that elicited an audible gasp from the audience.
In reference to the Trayvon Martin case, Frank said "you now got a hoodie you can wear and no one will shoot at you." After the audience reacted, Frank said, "I think you'll feel, I hope, pretty protected by that."
"Finally, I do want to acknowledge a man who has played a major role in diminishing inequality in Massachusetts and other spheres, and that's Hubie Jones," Barney Frank said.
"One of the great men that I've worked with Hubie for many years and I'm particularly pleased that Hubie got an honorary degree today. You know, when you get an honorary degree they give you one of these and Hubie, I think you now got a hoodie you can wear and no one will shoot at you. So, I think you'll feel, I hope, pretty protected by that," Frank said.

There was an “audible gasp” from the audience? You mean to tell me there are people in this world who can understand this fool when he speaks?
Guard your six. Hubie!
Since a black male is 40 times more likely to assault a white person(even higher if it’s a gay male), why didn’t Frank ask the black male if he was going to assault him for being a white, male homosexual??
What do you expect when you invite evil into your “house”? I hope the honorees got what they paid for.

more money from the banks and financial industry
for one, check out how Fidelity bankrolls this old twinkie with fund raisers. Once I did, I pulled all my money out, after almost 30 years of investing in Fidelity Funds.
Frank was also one of two people that received the Chancellor’s Distinguished Service Medal at the event. +............................ I guess it was for the work he put into the Home financing and Real Estate Market fiasco?
