Geraldo Rivera and Fox News: 'Leave The Hoodie At Home' WTF??

I knew it was going to happen eventually. This argument is no different or less silly and offensive as the miniskirt argument. If a woman gets raped and its discovered she was wearing a miniskirt it would be the height of stupidity to claim that she is in part responsible for her own attack because of what she was wearing.

Its the same thing here. I understand that Fox News addresses another viewpoint in political and social issues but this view is just plain moronic. Trayvon Martin wasn't killed because he wore a hooded top. He was murdered because his assailant George Zimmerman saw a young black man he didn't recognize and reacted off that period. What that boy was wearing had nothing to do with it.

This is why I can't stand Fox News. For those guys to sit there and give credence to this stupid opinion is a smack in the face not just to Trayvon's memory but to any victim of that kind of assault. There's a reason why studies and reports show that Fox News viewers are the least informed people in the country and this is it. To make things even worse, I'm not even sure if they seriously believe what they're saying here. I truly believe that because its their job to take a contrarian position on issues that they're just ripping shit off the top of their heads and spouting whatever sounds good in order to collect the check.

Fuck Geraldo for talking that bullshit and fuck Fox News for broadcasting it!
