Specifically because I live in a hot climate, I’m always fighting the feeling of being suspicious of anybody I pass in the streets with a hoodie pulled up. I feel guilty because of racial profiling associated with hoodies, but gotta protect myself and my family, especially because in many cases the perpetrators of assault and murder seen in media are somebody with a hood and/or mask on.

    I wear a hoodie most of the time. I don’t mind if you feel suspicious of me; one reason I have a hood up is because I don’t want to engage with random people. Sounds like you would go out of your way to avoid me so mission accomplished.
