Rep. Bobby Rush showed his solidarity for the late Trayvon Martin on Wednesday when he removed his suit jacket, donned a pair of sunglasses and pulled a hoodie over his head during a speech on the House floor.
"Just because someone wears a hoodie does not make them a hoodlum," he said.
Shortly after being removed from the House chamber for violating the House 'decor' rules, Mr. Rush, the former member and co-founder of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panthers, railed against guns and violence [during an interview].
The irony of all the above is: that when the Chicago Police conducted a raid on Mr. Rush's apartment, when he was still a Black Panther, they found shotgun and rifle ammunition, army training manuals on booby traps, explosives etc., and revolutionary reading material.
