I'm not going to say that it's a reliable source, but I believe there is definitely some evidence to support that prejudice is natural.

I think that when people think about hoodies, we think of robbers who put hoodies over there head to mask their identities and such. Hoodies have bad reputation. When we see someone with a hoodie when it's not raining and cold enough, then we get a little suspicious and go into fight or flight mode. We weigh our options and proceed with caution because the person wearing the hoodie could very well be trying to hide his identity with the intent to kill someone. I'm not saying it's right, but I'm saying it's natural.
