Could someone please remind me why people take Geraldo Rivera seriously? The man is little more than a carnival barker, a two-bit huckster masquerading as a journalist. And now, even after “apologizing” for blaming the Trayvon Martin killing on his wearing a hoodie, he’s once again defending that idiocy:
was right about the hoodie wasn’t I? I hate to brag, but I got criticized by every pundit in America when I said Trayvon Martin would be alive today but for the fact that he was wearing thug wear – he was wearing the hoodie. Turns out now that we look at George Zimmerman’s interviews with the police; he didn’t profile Trayvon Martin because he was black, he profiled him because he was wearing a hoodie.
Riiight. Because if it had been a white kid wearing a hoodie from the university he went to — that’s pretty much the standard uniform on any college campus you visit — he would have been just as concerned about the “thug wear,” amirite?
