Geraldo Rivera has managed to stick his foot in his mouth once again regarding the killing of Trayvon Martin and the role his hoodie may have played in the tragedy.
Geraldo has gone as far as saying if Trayvon would have just explained himself to George Zimmerman, who questioned his intent and presence in his neighborhood, the killing possibly wouldn’t have happened. Rivera also likened Trayvon’s hoodie to “thug wear.”
“If he had taken that damn hood off his head, if he and Zimmerman had only spoken…don’t you think that could have avoided this awful tragedy?” asked Rivera.
Benjamin Crump — the Martin family attorney — asked Rivera a simple but important question:
“You mean to tell me if Mark Zuckerberg was walking through the gated community, he could be profiled by George Zimmerman? What’s the difference between the two?”
