Breaking thru Prejudice & Stereotyping

Before we can break the cycle of stereotyping, we must look at ourselves and realize our own prejudice. Understanding the idea that how we look at people who dress up, are "sell outs" or "wanna be's". We may have other names we might call others, but is this not a type of prejudice. "Never judge a man until you've walked a mile in his shoes" - Atticus Finch (character in "to kill a mockingbird"). Why is this important to getting a job? 

Stopped for the way he was dressed, mistaken for someone else. Some attire can be associated with a criminal element, due to the use of Media and Television. 

What it means to be Suspect is that how we dress can mistake us for a criminal element. More and more news is shown with our children being gunned gown by police or gang members. A majority of the time these victims are innocent, well mannered young men and women. When diving into the details, the common thread is, he was mistaken for a suspect that was involved with a crime or, the unfortunate mistaken gang colors which could be shown as aggression. It's a sad time where a choice of colors we wear could threaten our lives. What we wear, how we wear our clothes, speaks volumes on our character, whether we know it or not.

"If a picture is worth a thousand words, what is your image worth?"

Unfortunately, in our day an age self expression can also be  judged in a negative way without any bearing as to who you are. Due to television and the news, people who dress in a certain are always portrayed as a violent or criminal person.  Due to this, most people have a negative reaction to some types of clothing and how it's worn.
