There's nothing scary about a black man in a hoodie. It's about time we broke this unhelpful stereotype. Pleased to be one of .
Distrust of black men in hoodies is endemic in the UK. A new campaign aims to challenge these views and make visible the individuals underneath

In certain situations, any bloke of any colour in a hoody can be scary!

There's something scary about ANY man in a hoodie. Why make it a race issue?

I don't know man, you look pretty tough to me. Nothing to do with skin colour or the hoodie, but you are a big dude!

You can’t tell what colour skin they have with hoods up that’s the whole point of them doing it. Quite why you have to bring colour of skin into this is appalling

He brings skin colour into everything, rather than promoting an Idris Elba look he thinks the the hoody will provoke more attention for him. Meanwhile he’s actually only suppressing black youth!

I am petrified by the notion that lying politicians are not allowed to be called out in House of Commons, and as a response, MPs start chatting about other things, like buses, hoodies, warships made out of ferries....

David IMO its distrust of anyone in a hoodie with their hood up I can assure you. Where I live there are very few black men but plenty of others walking around with their hood up and that is what brings distrust because people think what are they hiding for? Older people hate it

Maybe it's just cold or they have a bad hair day. Or maybe it's part of their look.
