While the parents of Trayvon Martin are saying that he is wearing a hoodie in heaven, Geraldo Rivera went on the air to denounce hoodies as evil garments causing the death of teenagers across the country.
Here is Geraldo’s view:
I am urging the parents of black and Latino youngsters, particularly, to not let their young children go out wearing hoodies. I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was.
“When you, when you see a kid walking — Juliet — when you see a kid walking down the street, particularly a dark skinned kid like my son Cruz, who I constantly yelled at when he was going out wearing a damn hoodie or those pants around his ankles. Take that hood off, people look at you and they — what do they think? What’s the instant identification, what’s the instant association?”
He then made comments along the same lines on his radio show.
