In New Zealand the Government’s Youth Affairs Ministry has a National Hoodie Day. The National Hoodie day was launched in hopes of challenging the negative perceptions of our youth. It isn’t just thugs who wear hoodies and some are out to prove it but others don’t agree with the day. The Youth Affairs Ministry is actually spending $35,000 on material and posters to help challenge the perceptions of youth in hoodies.
To protest National Hoodie Day a New Zealand politician showed up to a local council meeting wearing a Ku Klux Klan outfit to protest the hoodie holiday. Via News.com.au, TVNZ, Stuff.co.nz.
