    After seeing the fishing hook clip on my cap, someone recently told me they had always heard that had racist symbolism. I have NEVER heard that association, but for them, it was not something heard from just one person. Has anyone else ever heard this "symbolism", or is it just something among the clique they used to hand out with?

        A lot of the time they were passed out at the "Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs" events.

              At my school everybody wears boots, belt buckles, and camo hats with hooks in them, (some are hook clips, others are real). It is a hobby, not hate. We even have black kids that wear confederate flag buckles. Heritage not hate.

                          Some people just associate it with being a redneck/hillbilly/country boy and thus it has to mean the wearer is racist. I have heard it before but it is not just the hook, it is the sterotype of the person wearing it. Ignorant, hiatus like any other sterotype a person labels on another without knowing the person.
