Rep. Barney Frank: “You now have a hoodie you can wear and no one will shoot at you,”


Rep. Barney Frank: it was meant to “ridicule the notion that a hooded sweatshirt is somehow sinister.”

“You now have a hoodie you can wear and no one will shoot at you,”

Frank said after civil rights leader Hubie Jones received a hooded academic robe as part of an honorary degree awarded by the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.

“I think you’ll feel pretty protected by that,” Frank added.
The comment drew groans from the crowd.
