Blame The Hoodie?
On Friday’s “Fox & Friends” on the Fox News Channel, “Geraldo at Large” host Geraldo Rivera lamented the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, a Sanford, Fla. youth who was shot and killed last month by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in the name of self-defense.
However, Rivera placed as much blame on Martin’s wardrobe as he did on Zimmerman’s reaction.
“I have a different take, Brian, on that,” Rivera said. “I believe that George Zimmerman, the overzealous neighborhood watch captain should be investigated to the fullest extent of the law and if he is criminally liable, he should be prosecuted. But 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.”
