I got a fish hook to put on the bill of my hat as a gift last year, I put it on there because I like fishing and the outdoors in general. Someone told me the other day that it has White Supremicist/Racial meanings as well...Anyone else ever heard this? Or heard any other hidden meanings behind it?

Thats what I thought...I have it on my camo PS.com hat that my wife got me. He told me it had a neg. racial meaning but couldn't tell me what the meaning was.

I've never heard anything like that. I wore one for years but the hat I had it on came up missing a long time ago. I'd have one again but can't find them anywhere here. :dunno:

That just sounds stupid. I would wear one in a heart beat, but I dont fish as much as I used to. I think its just ignorance that people are saying stuff like that. Heck I had a girl tell me last weekend that all ******** are Drunken Racists. I told her that I was one and she sneered at me. It became a very interesting conversation after that. Too bad everyone around here thinks the same thing. Heck I get bad looks all the time just driving my truck around!

I distinctly recall meeting and talking to a couple of black guys in a breakfast joint in Philadelphia, Mississippi, about 8 years ago. I overheard them talking about 4 wheelers (ATVs), hunting, and such, and they took note of me kind of eavesdropping and invited me to join in on their conversation. As such, I recall them having fishing hooks and a ornamental lures-that-look-real on their hats/ball caps, as well.

I guess maybe they were Clayton Bigsby types, or something. :dunno: I mean if fishing hooks on hats is akin to racism and all...

FWIW, Chinook, I think whoever told you that is...misinformed...or trying to start a fire where one doesn't exist (I'm presuming).

It's just a CYA (cover your *ss) thing that I practice religiously. Whereas most of you guys (members on here that kind of know my "persona") probably realize I wasn't trying to convey any negative stereotypes by posting a link to that video, some nut job is liable to stop by this board, see that post, and then think I'm like the Grand Wizzard of the Klan if I didn't post that disclaimer. :bigthumb:


BTW, I have a black friend. :D:
