The hoodie hasn't gotten a bad rap. The thug wearing it has.

Blame the hoods, not the hoodies. Anything black men do will eventually be banned for promoting crime. If black men start playing classical music and it becomes associated with bloods and crips, they'll have to ban that too.

They'll steal a classical music tune and screw it up with a rap beat and gangsta lyrics like they always do.

Kind of like how their hands always reach for their crotches when they're in public.

They do that to all music. Did you notice that rappers never write their own songs? This rapper even stole the Romanian song "Dragostea Din Tei" (famous on YouTube for "Maya hee, maya hoo") and changed the lyrics to something about "hoes" and "fancy clothes."

But the good news is that I heard that most "white folks music" like classical music, country music, metal, 40's and 50's ballads, and any kind of "white" pop music can keep blacks away. At the very least it annoys them because music with a real melody (that wasn't stolen from someone else) instead of just a "jungle beat" supposedly has the same effect on a black gangsta's ears that rap does on white people (I'm serious about this). Classical works best though, but anything that isn't "pimpin" would keep blacks away.

I listen to some of that so what are you trying to say?

Lol the headline of this story is like fly paper for race trolls. What would ya'll do without the AA forum? I think ya'll enjoy it more than us. But I'd guess you'd be posting racist comments on rap videos on YT if it weren't for this.
