From the Million Hoodie March. The reason I like this photo is that it does EXACTLY what it is supposed to do: capture the white fear of the hooded black male. 
I compare it to the iconic 1968 Olympics photo of John Carlos and Tommy Smith because it captures white angst and puts it on the world stage for examination.
