Hoodie Day shows up mentality of some


Ku Klux Klan outfit stuns councillors
A Kapiti politician took National Hoodie Day to the extreme by donning a Ku Klux Klan costume at a council meeting, in a move that stunned district councillors and the public. Paraparaumu-Raumati Community Board deputy chairman Dale Evans walked into the Kapiti District Council's monthly meeting during public speaking time, dressed in the white outfit with a sign around his neck that said "its wotz under da hood dat counts" - mimicking the slogan used in a current national hoodie campaign. He wore the costume as a publicity stunt to draw attention to problems with Kapiti bore water. But after the meeting, deputy mayor Ann Chapman said it was appalling to use a serious episode of racism in American history as an analogy to the hoodie campaign. "It was outrageous - a poorly chosen disguise and disrespectful to what some American black people went through in the deep south," Mrs Chapman said. John Haxton, Paraparaumu-Raumati Community Board chairman, said Mr Evans should have brought the water issue up at a community board meeting, rather than resorting to dressing up. Kapiti Mayor Jenny Rowan agreed. However, Mr Evans "was exercising his democratic right".

This guy felt so mortified by Hoodie Day he dons a Ku Klux Klan costume? He is so frightened by young people in Hoodies he responds to them with this??? It’s interesting that it was young people themselves who initiated this concept to challenge their perceived stereotyping of young people, this councilors response is the exact mindset they claimed existed in its most ugly.

Hoodie Day? Do we need to spend money "celebrating" that sort of thing?

The Labour government (and its Green lap dogs) shows its total disregard for the taxpayer by spending 35,000 dollars in such wasteful way.

Roll on election day.

Spot on anonymous.
Bomber doesn't even read his own link, just shoots from the mouth, as usual.

He is also exercising his democratic rights.
Just like gang members and their patches.

Got a problem with democratic rights bomber?

Bomber, I don't think he was "mortified by Hoodie Day", he was making a protest about something else entirely (admittedly the protest was in poor taste).

Hang on.
The NZ Herald article is confusing.

It says he is wearing it in mockery of hoodie day, then it mentions that his concerns about the bore water could have been addressed more tastefully.

???

Did he wear it in protest of the bore water, or over hoody day?

It's clearly a mockery of hoodie day, and I don't see how you can protest one thing while mocking another, the two arn't even related.

Its obviously a publicity stunt satirising hoodie day, rather than 'dissing' it. Ya get me?

Nah, more like don't give a fuck either way.

Btw, it is not illegal to dress like the KKK.
It's called exercising your democratic rights.

Are you against democratic rights biggirlsblouse?

Fuck off bomber

You've totally lost lost it with your banal bandwagon of 'youth sterotyping'. EVERY generation of teenagers are in conflict with elders and rebel against the rules of society, it's part of the process of growing up and we usually grow out of it if we're sensible.

Stop bleating about a natural societal process as if it never happens before and grow up yourself. Just because you have some 'choice as' tats doesn't make you a part of youth culture anymore. You're a grown man not a narcissistic so quit whining.

"It was outrageous - a poorly chosen disguise and disrespectful to what some American black people went through in the deep south,"

on the other hand, it's 100% fine to call "zionists" (ie. jews) "nazis", and also to ally your idiot leftist self with the islamic jihadists with an alliance to the actual KKK (david duke and armageddonjihad, anyone???)

Bomber can't openly come out and say he hates jews so he uses the politically correct hatred of being an anti zionist as a proxy.

In Sri lanka the sinhalese have discrimated, ethnically clensed and murdered the tamils on a greater scale than the israelis have done to the palestinains but when was the last time bomber wrote about them?

NEVER
