I've been down this road before.
If I see a guy dressed as a clown, I think "Hey , There's a clown!" If I see someone in a Police uniform, I think "Hey! There's a cop!"
So if I see someone (regardless of race) in tats, chains, sunglasses, etc, I think "Hey! There goes a Thug!"
I know a lot of youngsters are selling "That's just my fashion, don't judge me" stuff.
Bottom line is if two guys came to your door to babysit your house or kids, one dressed in thugware and one dressed in jeans and a tshirt, who are you leaving your house with?
You are judged on what you wear. Accept it and work around it. I am as well. Yes, there are exceptions, but very few. That's why they are called "exceptions".
