You don't do much shopping do you? These days, you would be hard pressed to find a waitress or young store clerk without a tattoo or facial jewelry. Granted, I haven't seen anyone with gold teeth but, it seems to me, people are not judged on their outward appearances any longer.<quoted text>
Gold teeth, tattoos, and facial jewelry are tickets to unemployment.
So is showing up for an interview wearing a hoodie.
The truth, whether you like it or not.
Personally, I think it was a mistake for Trayvon's parents to sign a consent form for him to have a tattoo, let alone two but that is not Trayvon's fault. He was seventeen!!! Seventeen year olds do not always act rationally. Who knows, perhaps Trayvon would have joined the military at eighteen and matured. Despite the fact that I believe his actions contributed to his death, it makes it no less a tragedy. He had his whole life ahead of him.
