So, How Many Of Your Students Wear Hoodies? (Because This Bill Looks Like Profiling)

Have you seen this bill?

Kind of hard not to think of the racial profiling that this bill will bring about in public schools.

In my closet right now are at least 18-20 hoodies – most all of them associated with my school, the college I attended, and sports teams that I follow.

On any given day in my classroom, there will be many students wearing hoodies. The weather outside does not matter.

But when an older white lawmaker pushes this bill in a state legislature in this day and age of racial tension, it reminds me of one person who happened to be wearing a hoodie.

Rep. John Torbett should do better than sponsor this bill.

In fact, all of those white male legislators who sponsored this bill should do better.
