It’s all so clear what Geraldo Rivera, former reporter means to say when he tells us that we have a totally one-sided view of the tragic killing of Trayvon Martin. For many of us, the word killing should be changed to murder. George Zimmerman, a man armed with a gun and fueled by racist hatred stalked Trayvon as he walked down the street in his father’s neighborhood. Trayvon was considered dangerous and possibly on drugs, in Zimmerman’s eyes. Zimmerman was going to protect the community from this young boy wearing a hoodie.If black youths would just stop wearing those hoodies, things would be different and white men could see them differently.That’s what we are being told by an idiot with an audience. Like the commercial said, a mind is a terrible thing to waste and Geraldo has wasted his. Geraldo’s son said it best when he declared he was ashamed of his father.
