Pure overreaction BUT at the age of 17, you have to know that wearing a hoodie when walking in public will cause people to be afraid. I mean at that age you should know not to have the hood on, as it can give the vibe of being a criminal. Its like having dark shaded tint windows in a car, it gives a vibe to the police that your being secretive about something.
The most annoying people are the people who overreact to this like Spike Lee for instance who is going on a hate spree and screaming this is racist. Al Sharpton will do the same if he has not already. These people have nothing better to do than scream racist after anything happens to A black person.
