Kansas City Hoodie Debate Clickbait

The holidays are always tough on content providers and this recent throwaway column from The Star offers a perspective on worthless throwaway social media rant in place of telling us anything useful about this town . . . Reality is that hoodie complaints aren't the forefront of the next Civil Rights movement but mostly serve as nothing more than a desperate cry for attention for both hacks and social justice warriors looking for their next series of angry tweets.

BTW . . . Most of the security staff at the Westport Slumfresh are also minorities and their job seems tough enough without some bored newspaper columnists trying to second guess a harmless request.

Checkit this reader suggested link so that our blog community can talk it over without being targeted by the local PC hit squad:

African-American teen told to remove hoodie at KC store | The Kansas City Star

After Sherry Mirador and her family arrived at Marsh's Sun Fresh grocery store in Westport, employees asked her 17-year-old son to remove his hoodie. When did wearing a sweatshirt become suspicious behavior?

A hoodie is not a civil right?

When you're an employee of the Star, with a consistently tiresome narrative and NO responsibilities, you can just roam around the metro looking for pretty much anything that doesn't fit with your view of how things should be and "report" it as the latest "outrage".
So many victimized aggrieved individuals and groups every where you look!
And then when the incident turns out to be very different than what it appeared and there's a very serious and bad turn of event, well, that's for someone else to worry about.
All rights and no responsibilities.
What could possibly go wrong?

Have to give some credit to American advertising genius for turning a sweatshirt with hood originally meant for gym class into an item people will pay $100 for and consider essential fashion wear.

There goes the star again. Looking for some kind of SJW rabble rouser news.


KC Star: Absent of realism, rife with idealism.

Hey, I wonder why the security measures have to be so elaborate in the first place. Hmmm.

Oh that's right. Black criminality and dysfunction.

Sounds like that lady and her son need to change grocery stores to another store in the ghetto.

Good comments about the hoodies.

Just another sign of the times, one man's gym wear is another man's gem.

Somebody should write a book about this "slum fresh" it would one of the most important indictments of KC in years.

If I owned a business in that area and black teens wanted to come into my business I'd make them strip down to their underwear and pass through a metal detector. Then I'd have half a change of not getting robbed or my merchandise stolen. Oh and I'd have color high-def cameras. I would give them their clothes back when they left.

hoodies are not even good for the cold or cone of vision unless you tighten the drawstring, but then you look like a bigger idiot.

An absolute low for what was once a well respected newspaper. Lazy, lazy lazy journalism.

Indianapolis has a Merchant program that bans hoodies in their stores. I was wearing a zip up hoodie sweatshirt and had to remove it at one of these stores this fall, there. I understand.
