Geraldo: Hoodie ‘Responsible’

Fox News host Geraldo Rivera said Friday that Trayvon Martin’s hoodie sweatshirt is “as much responsible” for his death as the neighborhood-watch volunteer who shot and killed the teenager. Speaking on Fox and Friends, Rivera said hoodies can draw “unwanted attention” to “dark-skinned” kids. Although Rivera used his own son as an example, Rivera tweeted after the show that his son was “ashamed” of the comments, but Rivera insisted in a later tweet that "it's sad that I have to be the one reminding minority parents of the risk that comes with being a kid of color in America."
