I'm a white guy and was wondering why some black folks give me dirty looks when I wear a "hoodie". [View all]

It keeps happening and I'm 99% sure it isn't in my head.

Am I being insensitive? Is it related to the Trayvon Martin case?

Am I violating a new social more? I've worn these my whole life. Who hasn't?

I have two. One is plain black and the other is gray and has an Everlast logo.

I seem to get more negative attention when wearing the black one.

Anybody have any thoughts?
