[VIDEO] Congressman Bobby Rush Kicked Off House Floor For Wearing Hoodie

Illinois Representative, Bobby Rush, was escorted off the senate floor Wednesday morning after putting on a hoodie and a pair of sun glasses in protest for Trayvon Martin. Before his speech, Rush approached the floor wearing a suit jacket. Then as he says “racial profiling has to stop Mr. Speaker,” he takes off his suit jacket revealing his hoodie then says, “Just because someone wears a hoodie does not make them a hoodlum.” Click below to see the video and check out what Rob Redding had to say.
