Why do people assume because someone dresses urban/has tattoos & piercings they can't be educated?
I don't get this. Why is this? Just because I wear Jordans, baggy shorts, have tattoos, and diamond studs in my ears, they assume I couldn't be educated beyond high school. I actually am about 30 credit hours away from my PHD as I already have a masters degree. Why can't someone look/dress urban and almost have to be assumed to be uneducated? What does one have to do with the other? Couldn't someone in a shirt and slacks be a GED recipient?
Most people who think that are over the age of 30 & have grown up in a society were only gang member or people who have been in jail get tattoos. However, recent generations have become more opened minded & have self expression like body modifications & tattoos :p
