Loop 21 columnist dons hoodie in support of Martin
Goff, who wrote a piece last year titled "Is Racism Worst in the Age of Obama?," spoke about racial profiling in America in the segment while wearing a hoodie in support of Trayvon Martin.
She recounted the countless incidents when she has been racially profiled entering a department store; and also mentioned how many celebrities, such as Oprah Winfrey and Condoleezza Rice, have gone through the same. Goff explained how racial profiling towards African Americans affects all — both rich and poor.

"Walking into the wrong store while being the wrong color is what walking down the street wearing a hoodie is to black men," she said powerfully.
