What makes a person suspicious? Is it the clothes they wear? The way they move? Is it the color of their skin? I don’t think any one factor can or should be a reason to label someone as suspicious, however that all changes if a few things come together.
Take Tyrone for instance (I don’t actually know his name but this guy looked like he could be a Tyrone).
I was driving to work yesterday when I saw Tyrone’s shiny red sports car in my rear view mirror. Tyrone must have been in a hurry, as he was coming up behind me pretty quickly and weaving through traffic rather erratically. He must have been late to work. Finding a whole in the traffic, Tyrone managed to get over to the next lane and opened up the throttle on his shiny new convertible. As Tyrone was pulling up next to me, I was starting to admire his car when I actually got a good look at Tyrone and did a double take (I’m sure you would have too).Now I’m not one to jump to conclusions but I think Tyrone looked fucking suspicious. Now some of you may disagree but take a moment to let me explain myself. Take a look a at what I like to call my “Equation Of Tyrone’s Suspiciousness”:
Black Guy + Sunglasses = Not Suspicious
Black Guy + Convertible Red Sports Guy =Mildly Suspicious (Black guys don’t really drive convertibles on the East Coast)
Black Guy + Hoodie = Mildly Suspicious (Unless you live in FL then you fucked)
Black Guy + Hoodie + Sunglasses = Mildly Suspicious
Black Guy + Hoodie with hood up + Sunglasses = Dial 9-1 and just wait
Black Guy + Hoodie with hood up + Sunglasses + Convertible Red Sports Car + Erratic Driving = Someone call Officer Dick Asshole!
You really can’t really see it in this picture but what self-respecting thug drives a red convertible Mitsubishi Eclipse with glitter in the paint? I’m mean seriously, tell me you wouldn’t pull that guy over. I know I would.
