If you missed it

If you haven't been following the Trayvon Martin case,I still hate you as an individual. I'm not even being a little bit snarky here. I'm totally serious. It takes someone who has been in a coma for the last few weeks to not know about this.

With that said,if you've been on twitter today you may have noticed that Geraldo Rivera was trending. You may be asking yourself "Why is the mustachioed news veteran trending? Did he shave his face again?". If that were the reason behind him trending,the world would be a much better place. Instead he's trending because he decided that he would play devils advocate and blame Trayvon Martin for Trayvon Martin being shot and killed. He does this by saying that the clothes that he wore are responsible for his death. In Geraldo's mind,the hoodie was the problem. In his mind hoodies are a good reason to get shot. Besides from showing that he's getting old,he's also showing that he's a bit of a racist. In this video he explains that if you're dark skinned,you shouldn't wear a hoodie because you look like a criminal. Due to looking like a criminal by wearing a hoodie in February(perfect hoodie wearing weather) Trayvon Martin was profiled and then murdered. I guess what I'm saying is that Geraldo is blaming the victim's clothing choice and thus he's no better than a guy who blames a woman who just got raped for her being raped. If there's anything positive to this is that this video does at least expose that fox has 3 racist idiots on it's staff and that white people are still free to wear hoodies. Click on the video below and be amazed.
