Geraldo Rivera angered many when he made an extremely insensitive statement on Fox News’ Fox&Freinds regarding the case of Trayvon Martin.
Geraldo essentially blamed Trayvon Martin for wearing a hoodie telling his audience:
“I am urging the parents of black and Latino youngsters particularly to not let their children go out wearing hoodies. I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was.”
Geraldo then went on to make some extremely ignorant comments saying:
“It’s those crime scene surveillance tapes. Every time you see someone sticking up a 7-Eleven, the kid’s wearing a hoodie.
Every time you see a mugging on a surveillance camera or they get the old lady in the alcove, it’s a kid wearing a hoodie.
You have to recognize that this whole stylizing yourself as a gangsta — you’re going to be a gangsta wannabe? Well, people are going to perceive you as a menace.”
The fact that we now have photos of Geraldo wearing a hoodie himself, there’s every reason to label this man a hypocite at its finest!
