This Week’s Cartoon: “The Hoodie: Apparel of Peril”


Cartoon about Trayvon Martin and hoodiesThe hoodie is about as universal as blue jeans these days, transcending practically every youth subculture. Considering that some 99.98% of hoodie-wearers are non-thugs, you’d have to be a clueless Fox News pundit to find the garment gunfire-provokingly scary.

I regret that I could not include the Great Hoodie Wars of the 7th century between the House of the Zip-Front and the House of Pullovers, as I unfortunately did not have not enough room to draw a giant battle scene.

    Regarding the cartoon, you have to take into account it’s Texas. They are at the lower end of the bell curve.

    Let’s see now, the University of Texas reinstates a racist cartoon in The Daily Texan because it believes so deeply in free speech, and a Doonesbury cartoon criticizing the Texas legislature for requiring trans-vaginal sonograms gets pulled by some 50 newspapers including the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Could there be some sort of pattern here?
