Rivera tweeted, “His hoodie killed Trayvon Martin as surely as George Zimmerman.”

On Fox News, Geraldo also said, “I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was. 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. That’s what happens. It is an instant, reflexive action.”

But he didn’t stop there. Oh, yes, it gets worse.

“When you see a Black or Latino, particularly on the street, you walk to the other side of the street to avoid that confrontation. Trayvon Martin, God bless him, an innocent kid, a wonderful kid, a box of Skittles in his hand, he didn’t deserve to die, but I’ll bet you money that if he didn’t have that hoodie on that nutty neighborhood watch guy wouldn’t have responded in that violent and aggressive way.”

So what exactly is Mr. Rivera saying?

That because Trayvon decided to wear a hoodie, he was welcoming a 28-year-old man to hunt him down in his own neighborhood and shoot him to death? Really, Mr. Rivera? I guess he must be a major supporter of “Stop and Frisk,” racial profiling and other forms of discrimination, because in his view, something as simple as a hoodie can mark a law-binding person “dead man walking.”

Or, in Trayvon Martin’s case, a dead 140-pound, 17-year-old boy with iced tea and Skittles walking.

Mr. Rivera must not have been paying attention to the thousands of people worldwide wearing a hoodie in protest of the absurd matter in which Trayvon died. Moreover, why is Mr. Rivera focusing his criticism on the victim and not the criminal, George Zimmerman?

Mr. Rivera must really need money because he is no longer relevant. He better hope that Fox News gives him the platform he wants because no dignified news organization with a heart would pay for his ignorant perspective on race relations in this country.
