Geraldo Rivera: Trayvon Martin’s Hoodie ‘Is Responsible’ For His Death

by Liz Colville

MOSH!

Geraldo Rivera, the Fox News fool who bops around America pretending he is “out in the field” delving into stories that no one else does (in quite such a spectacularly ignorant way), has decided that there is a very good explanation for why Trayvon Martin was shot by a bored and racist man on a power trip: HIS SWEATSHIRT. HIS SWEATSHIRT WITH THE HOOD. In fact, any young person in America wearing a hoodie should be prepared that he may, at any time, be shot to death, according to Geraldo, because what are you hiding under there? A weapon? The weapon that is your face? The thoughts inside your shrouded brain?

Please, gather ’round for this important theory.

I am urging the parents of black and Latino youngsters particularly to not let their children go out wearing hoodies. I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was.

Here is the video:

Yes, why aren’t more inanimate objects blamed for things? Indeed, maybe Zimmerman’s gun shot itself! After all, knives fly out of people’s hands and into other people’s chests all the time.

Just to bring “more” legitimacy to his claim, Geraldo brought his son into the mix. So presumably people want to murder Geraldo’s son, too, and Geraldo is just saying, deal with that, son. Die. Or you could also just take the hoodie off.

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 what’s the instant identification? What’s the instant association? Its crime scene surveillance tapes. Every time you see someone stick up a 7-Eleven, the kid is wearing a hoodie. Every time you see a mugging on a surveillance camera or get the old lady in the alcove, it’s the kid with a hoodie. You have to recognize that this whole stylizing yourself as a gangsta — you’re going to be a gangsta wannabe? Well, people are going to perceive you as a menace. That’s what happens. It is an instant reflexive action.

Ah, “instant reflexive actions.” Because those are great, and should never not happen. But Geraldo, whatever happened to, Innocent until proven guilty … of an actual crime that hasn’t happened yet? And never will, shucks, because Trayvon is dead. [Washington Post]

Geraldo, the 70's called and they want their mustache back.

el_donaldo March 23, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Specifically, Harold Reems called. He'd like the mustache cleaned and sanitized before getting it back too.

Callyson March 23, 2012 at 1:39 pm

The 70's should reconsider that request–they don't know where that mustache has been.

Barb March 23, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Where that mustache has been? All over Roger Ailes' ass is where. Dude has a crack bigger than the Liberty Bell and Geraldo tickles his starfish with his mustache and makes him giggle like a schoolgirl.

RadioStalingrad March 23, 2012 at 1:58 pm

Haha, I just Chuck Norris'd this from Lascauxcaveman on a previous thread.

beavertank March 23, 2012 at 2:28 pm

You just terrible right wing columned that in the complete absence of logic or facts? I think I must be working on an outdated definition of what it means to Chuck Norris something.

…unless it's sexual? In which case, eww.

C_R_Eature March 23, 2012 at 2:54 pm

Isn't that site fun?

Doktor StrangeZoom March 23, 2012 at 2:31 pm

Every time you see a skinhead punch a TV talk show moron in the nose, the TV moron is wearing a pornstache. That’s what happens. It is an instant reflexive action.

spareme March 23, 2012 at 2:39 pm

Ya know, they really should of let him have the Gong show, instead of letting him be a reporter.

nirrti_rachelle March 23, 2012 at 4:00 pm

Apparently, Geraldo has an unlisted number…because the 80s couldn't get their hairstyle back either.

iburl March 23, 2012 at 4:43 pm

And their poppers

soeoho March 23, 2012 at 1:33 pm

I thought Gerald Riviera was locked back into Al Capone's vault? or was that a ….dream

Boojum_Reborn March 23, 2012 at 7:53 pm

Apparently, he was wearing a hoodie.
http://geraldoinahoodie.tumblr.com/

el_donaldo March 23, 2012 at 1:34 pm

I'm going out tonight, so I could use a few points for avoiding trouble. So no hoody. What if I'm dressed like the old dudes at the orgy in Eyes Wide Shut? Would that be a less threatening hoody style?

actor212 March 23, 2012 at 1:51 pm

Oh man! He had it coming! Did you see how short that hood was????

RadioStalingrad March 23, 2012 at 1:52 pm

That……movie………….was………..criminal.

actor212 March 23, 2012 at 2:21 pm

Oh, in answer to your question, make sure you wear an onion on your belt.

ChernobylSoup March 23, 2012 at 1:34 pm

Joke's on him. There's nothing inside the hoodie.

actor212 March 23, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Are you kidding?

There are hoodies with lasers under them….FRIKKIN' LASERS, man! Frikkin' hoodies with frikkin' lasers!

Bonzos_Bed_Time March 23, 2012 at 2:02 pm

Dementor libel!!!1!

pickletickle March 23, 2012 at 1:34 pm

Geraldo then announced that he will be embedded with a group of hoodie wearers and give reports from the front line in the hoodie war.

actor212 March 23, 2012 at 1:56 pm

Why can't we have a good booty war? That's a war I'd choose sides in.

flamingpdog March 23, 2012 at 2:01 pm

Is he drawing the location of the nearest Wal Mart with a stick in the sand?

Doktor StrangeZoom March 23, 2012 at 2:25 pm

Begun this hoodie war has.

Clancy_Pants March 23, 2012 at 1:35 pm

Cruz control: "…my son Cruz who I constantly yelled at when he was going out wearing a damn hoodie or those pants around his ankles"

gullywompr March 23, 2012 at 1:35 pm

The kid obviously committed Suicide By Hoodie.

MissTaken March 23, 2012 at 1:35 pm

I was going to wear a skirt today but remembered that would make people perceive me as whore and rape me. That's what happens. It is an instant reflexive action.

Barb March 23, 2012 at 1:37 pm

Do you want to carpool to the Abortionplex? I can't afford the tanning bed this week and I could really use some Betadine for that sun-kissed glow.

MissTaken March 23, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Sweet! And with our fetuses, before they are aborted, we'll qualify for the HOV lane on the way to the Abortionplex. Yay!

Barb March 23, 2012 at 1:41 pm

If we get raped on our way just remember that we are supposed to "lay back and enjoy it" I hear if we mention Clayton Williams we get free Orange Julius at the food court.

starfanglednut March 23, 2012 at 8:09 pm

And be grateful for any babies conceived!

Clancy_Pants March 23, 2012 at 1:45 pm

It's Friday, free transvaginal ultrasounds!

actor212 March 23, 2012 at 1:52 pm

Soy sauce works in a pinch, Barb and you can get it for free at the Abortionplex in the food court.

Native_of_SL_UT March 23, 2012 at 1:44 pm

I was going to wear a skirt today too. But Mrs SL_UT threw me out of her closet.(again)

Bonzos_Bed_Time March 23, 2012 at 2:03 pm

That you Marcus?

SorosBot March 23, 2012 at 1:47 pm

Those poor innocent men, being forced to rape because of those short shirts. Or those pants which reveal the shape of your ass and legs. Or keeping that sexy tempting hair uncovered. Really wearing anything other than a burkha is just asking for it.

Fare la Volpe March 23, 2012 at 1:51 pm

Only sultry eyeball-adorning hussies wear burkahs. Truly modest women wear burlap sacks with an opening at the bottom for their husbands to continue the family line.

actor212 March 23, 2012 at 1:53 pm

The women near you must be sluts, because ours wear chastity belts under the sack

MissTaken March 23, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Haha! When I was in Egypt the women who wore Niqabs with just the eyes visible wore the most incredibly beautiful eye makeup imaginable. Proof that us ladies will make whatever we got work.

I make my burlap sack hawt!

Barb March 23, 2012 at 2:01 pm

I'd never make a very good Amish woman. I'd be entering wet bonnet contests and trying to whoop it up.

Barb March 23, 2012 at 2:07 pm

Not to self, buy and wear underpants. Burlap is itchy.

Negropolis March 24, 2012 at 1:36 am

I find this be-burlapped woman incredibly difficult to masturbate to.

Boojum_Reborn March 23, 2012 at 1:47 pm

Yes, yes, exactly, because of male hormones, and genetics, and penis science. But, you also can't be in the military, because men would want to protect you. And working, well, who will think of the children?

So, the best thing would just be burqas all around!

BigSkullF*ckingDog March 23, 2012 at 2:22 pm

This is why I only wear garbage bags and the underwear I find on the side of the highway.

Toomush_Infer March 23, 2012 at 3:17 pm

burkahs, hoodies…..it's all the same…..slutthugs…

MissTaken March 23, 2012 at 3:33 pm

I read that as slut hugs!

starfanglednut March 23, 2012 at 8:59 pm

Yay!

Callyson March 23, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Every time you see someone stick up a 7-Eleven, the kid is wearing clothing. Every time you see a mugging on a surveillance camera or get the old lady in the alcove, it’s the kid with clothing. So, if you don't want to get shot, you better not take any chances wearing clothing.
Seriously–capital WTF? Jesus, it's still morning here and I already want a drink or ten…

James Michael Curley March 23, 2012 at 2:37 pm

I have the feeling a few firemen and police officers were thinking of really creative uses for the 'Jaws of Life".

bureaucrap March 23, 2012 at 2:54 pm

Pictures or GTFO.

OzoneTom March 23, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Actually stupid people make me feel threatened.

OneYieldRegular March 23, 2012 at 2:07 pm

No f-ing kidding. If I had kids, I wouldn't let them anywhere near Geraldo Rivera.

Fred_Wertham_Jr March 23, 2012 at 2:27 pm

You must live in a state of constant terror.

OneDollarJuana March 23, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Someday they will say that Geraldo's mouth was the cause of his death.

Boojum_Reborn March 23, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Someday, they will be right.

ShiftyParadigm March 23, 2012 at 1:36 pm

And….the money quote:
The chief said, “if he rubbed up against somebody, we could be looking at criminal sexual conduct.”

Doktor StrangeZoom March 23, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Hoodies don't kill people. Assholes with delusions of being cops kill people.

Elmerobinson March 23, 2012 at 4:10 pm

Yes. And assholes with delusions of being cops especially like to kill people with hoodies…..bonus points if their pants are hanging low.

facehead March 23, 2012 at 1:37 pm

" I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was."

Yeah, and yarmulkes caused the Holocaust.

Doktor StrangeZoom March 23, 2012 at 2:24 pm

I move we close down comments on this thread at this time. Nothing more need be said.

freakishlywrong March 23, 2012 at 1:37 pm

I"m wearing a hoodie right now, idiot.

actor212 March 23, 2012 at 1:57 pm

Prevert!

Chet Kincaid March 23, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Yes, and your presence here proves you're up to no good!!

Doktor StrangeZoom March 23, 2012 at 2:50 pm

BANG!!!

Inchhigh March 23, 2012 at 5:49 pm

There were two lily white 6 year olds wearing hoodies today in art class. I decided to just taser them.

boobookitteh March 23, 2012 at 1:37 pm

When you see a kid walking down the street, particularly a dark skinned kid … what’s the instant identification? What’s the instant association? Its crime…

Might as well just get rid of all those other words and get to the heart of the issue.

gullywompr March 23, 2012 at 1:40 pm

If you people weren't so dark-skinned, this never would have had to happen.

boobookitteh March 23, 2012 at 1:43 pm

Really parents should be telling their kids to not be so dark skinned.

Biff March 23, 2012 at 1:53 pm

That advice did Michael Jackson no good at all!

actor212 March 23, 2012 at 2:38 pm

The saying is you can never be too rich or too thin, but it says nothing about being too white.

missemish March 23, 2012 at 1:37 pm

Also short skirts get women raped, pink shirts get effeminate men beaten to death. Remember folks, it's never, never the crazy white guy's fault. He was provoked.

gullywompr March 23, 2012 at 1:41 pm

Sluts, blahs, illegals, they are their own worst enemies.

missemish March 23, 2012 at 1:45 pm

if only they weren't so slutty and so brown. They should know better!

SorosBot March 23, 2012 at 1:49 pm

But this guy was part Latino, so he couldn't be racist!

Really, that's what some of the wingnuts are saying (check out the comments at the Daily Caller article linked below for examples). Just ignore the "fucking coon" on the 911 call and all the other actual evidence.

Fare la Volpe March 23, 2012 at 1:56 pm

And ignoring the fact that his mother is White Hispanic.

horsedreamer_1 March 23, 2012 at 7:33 pm

Anti-Castro Cuban?

miss_grundy March 24, 2012 at 8:09 pm

Actually his mom is Peruvian and she looks indigenous to me.

sullivanst March 23, 2012 at 1:57 pm

I was going to go check out the comments at the Daily Callgirl article, but then I realized I'd rather stab myself repeatedly in the eyes with a pen.

Fare la Volpe March 23, 2012 at 2:07 pm

In that case don't go on HuffPo either. The trolls are out in full force today.

Chet Kincaid March 23, 2012 at 2:19 pm

They are so stupid that they think "racist" can only be applied to white people.

Gleem McShineys March 23, 2012 at 2:26 pm

You coloreds are stealing our racism! KEEP RACISM PURE

x111e7thst March 23, 2012 at 1:38 pm

So remember kidz when you are going to burn a cross on someones lawn ask your mommy for a sheet to wear, no hoodies!

barto March 23, 2012 at 1:38 pm

Well, his latino sounding name does automagically qualify him as expert on this stuff, duh. Also interesting that his son is so much like his father, you know, with his pants down around his ankles all the time.

Callyson March 23, 2012 at 1:38 pm

“You cannot rehabilitate the hoodie. I understand that the reaction might be overzealous or even irrational in some extent, I mean, when you look at the statistics,” Rivera said. “But you’re not going to rehabilitate the hoodie. Stop wearing it! You know the old Johnny Cash song, ‘Don’t take your gun to town, son. Leave your gun at home.’ There are some things that are almost inevitable. I’m not suggesting Trayvon Martin had any kind of weapon or anything, but he wore an outfit that allowed someone to respond in this irrational, overzealous way and if he had been dressed more appropriately, I think unless it’s raining out or you’re at a track meet, leave the hoody home.”
Hoodies, guns, same thing…
Oh, and this "dressed more appropriately" bit? JFC, I hope this asshole Geraldo never ends up on a jury for a rape case…or any other jury for that matter.

bikerlaureate March 23, 2012 at 2:14 pm

…an outfit that allowed someone to respond in this irrational, overzealous way ?

Holy crap. Maybe we do get the media we deserve.

Fare la Volpe March 23, 2012 at 2:33 pm

I hope he's never allowed out in public. He has tattoos, after all. Someone might react in an irrational, overzealous way if they see them.

C_R_Eature March 23, 2012 at 2:41 pm

He'd better watch where he takes that punchable mustache-face, too

Ruhe March 23, 2012 at 3:17 pm

Eminently punchable, ergo his media career.

Swampgas_Man March 23, 2012 at 4:46 pm

The only outfit that wouldn't allow someone to respond in this "ovezealous" way?
A bulletproof burqua.

DeathofKoalas March 23, 2012 at 4:48 pm

Or maybe, you know, the other dude should have not taken his ACTUAL mf'ing GUN to town. Like what the song says. Or just stick to using 'gun' as a convoluted metaphor for 'hoodie', whatever.

LemonySnicket March 24, 2012 at 3:47 am

It WAS raining, Geraldope. And you can’t use “hoodie” as a metaphor for gun in a situation where the unarmed guy in a hoodie was shot by a lunatic carrying a REAL, ACTUAL GUN.

The stupid burns.

Mumbletypeg March 23, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Even worse than "The Black Panthers told him to do it" horseshit to depict Obama as a tool,
Geraldo has actually transcended MattBoyle's repugnant blame gaming by asserting that "The Hoodie made him do it" to clear Zimmerman as guileless.

The only twist in this "Race to the bottom" is, there is no 'bottom.' If it were a reality show it'd be aptly named "Trail of Turds."

Native_of_SL_UT March 23, 2012 at 1:40 pm

Well I'm fucked. I just paid 60 bucks for a Mastadon hoodie that I wear daily. Guess I better go buy me a sweater vest instead.

GunToting[Redacted] March 23, 2012 at 2:37 pm

They can have my Volbeat hoodie when they pry it from my cold, dead neck.

SpeedoFart March 23, 2012 at 6:06 pm

I've been wearing my Mass Effect N7 hoodie for weeks on end now.

I guess it's a good thing I never leave my house.

C_R_Eature March 23, 2012 at 1:40 pm

Right, Geraldo. It's the Hoodie that's the problem, not the 300+ years of racial history we have in this country.

Honestly, I don't know how he dresses himself in the morning.

EDIT: Oh, and I'm wearing a Hoodie right now. Yougoddaproblemwiddat?

flamingpdog March 23, 2012 at 1:49 pm

I'm wearing a hoodie and drinking a bottle of malt liquor in my cubicle at work!

OK, the part about the bottle of malt liquor isn' true, but … the boss is out of the office today!

C_R_Eature March 23, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Woohoo Party! I was going to call you a Snob about the Malt Liquor because we have to make do with Mad Dog 'round these parts, but I see you're Dry today. That's a shame!

We're all going out with our Hoodies on and break into old white folks homes to steal their prescription drugs. Wanna come?

Jimmyone March 23, 2012 at 2:04 pm

I own more hoodies than shirts, does that make me a young.. blah ..criminal? Or just a person who likes hoodies?

C_R_Eature March 23, 2012 at 2:13 pm

Hoodie = Criminal now. Apparently.

Any questions?

SayItWithWookies March 23, 2012 at 1:40 pm

Right now I'm picturing Geraldo and Rush Limbaugh on a little desert island together, sipping Two If By Tea and wondering why the liberal media attack dogs made them look so stupid. They barely have time to notice the meteor…

Right now I'm picturing Geraldo and Rush Limbaugh on a little desert island together…

I'm trying to snark, but the right-wing's reflexive need to blame the victim here is just making me sick. Fuck, what is wrong with them?

MissTaken March 23, 2012 at 1:43 pm

Stupidity?
Narcissism?
Sexual Repression?
Racism?
Undue Sense of Entitlement?

Take your pick.

C_R_Eature March 23, 2012 at 1:46 pm

"Assholes" fits the bill, for me.

SorosBot March 23, 2012 at 1:56 pm

All of the above?

Chet Kincaid March 23, 2012 at 4:19 pm

Inferiority Complex?

starfanglednut March 23, 2012 at 9:12 pm

Don't forget sociopathy.

gullywompr March 23, 2012 at 1:49 pm

It's their entire essence, SorosBot. Wingers convince themselves daily that all of their failures are caused by lower persons, i.e. The American Dream is ruined by minorities (and now women also too), and therefore never the winger's fault.

SorosBot March 23, 2012 at 2:10 pm

And we're all supposed to pretend that racism no longer exists, so even when a crazed wanna-be cop kills a teenager for walking while black it still can't possibly be because of race.

Barb March 23, 2012 at 2:22 pm

Romney just issued a statement about this and called it "tragic" Things will get magically better now.

actor212 March 23, 2012 at 2:39 pm

Way to get out in front of an issue, Mitt…

James Michael Curley March 23, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Was he wearing his hooded magic underwear?

Ruhe March 23, 2012 at 3:15 pm

If he means "tragic" in the classical sense in that this incident will draw pundits and politicians helplessly toward their doom as they can't resist the urge to say something really pompous and stupid about it…then I agree.

GOPCrusher March 23, 2012 at 5:06 pm

Further proof that racism still exists, you just pointed it out. Racist.

Boojum_Reborn March 23, 2012 at 1:50 pm

It's your fault.

flamingpdog March 23, 2012 at 1:52 pm

Let's see – racism, ignorance and stupidity, paranoia, other mental illness, sociopathy, faux Christianity, being raised from little fetuses in Dumbfuckistan. Maybe somebody else can help out.

actor212 March 23, 2012 at 2:00 pm

I blame the patriarchy.

JustPixelz March 23, 2012 at 2:25 pm

"Blame the Victim"

Isn't that the official name for that Florida law? Of course, if the victim lives it's a different story so it's legally advantageous for Florida shooters to use plenty of bullets. Big ones, if possible.

dadanarchist March 23, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Fuck, what is wrong with them?

How long do you got?

missemish March 23, 2012 at 1:41 pm

I feel really sad that he's been teaching his sons that the color of their skin is inherently scary and they must always tread carefully. He's taught them their mere existence is threatening and inferior. It really makes me nearly cry.

Sue4466 March 23, 2012 at 1:42 pm

At least he's being consistent on the whole "victim had it coming" thing by applying the same "what was she wearing" logic to this kid's murder.

It's disgusting in both cases. But yeah, points for consistency.

FakaktaSouth March 23, 2012 at 1:42 pm

YEAH! Cause YOU KNOW who wears things with HOODS esp when it's RAINING like it was? Me. I do, because I straighten my fake blond hair. Christ. I am NOT wearing my hair curly. Geraldo will just have to try to shoot me, but this is Alabama so he better be QUICK – GERALDO RIVERA? What kinda name is that, brown guy? Puerto Rican? We are also a stand your ground state Gerry so you might just stay put.

samsuncle March 23, 2012 at 1:59 pm

Don't you just love living in the warm humid south. It rained so much here that my salt shaker clogged up.

prommie March 23, 2012 at 2:08 pm

Its damned bothersome, keeping the saltshakers on my yacht un-clogged.

actor212 March 23, 2012 at 2:28 pm

Oh, I just sailed to a drier climate.

Biel_ze_Bubba March 23, 2012 at 3:07 pm

Do you have friends who own salt mines?

prommie March 23, 2012 at 3:24 pm

I'm safe from all those Romney-gaffes, I have no friends at all! I wonder if its because I obnoxiously bring up my yacht for no reason all the time?

Chet Kincaid March 23, 2012 at 4:16 pm

Put some rice in it.

GOPCrusher March 23, 2012 at 5:07 pm

That's what my butler does.

prommie March 23, 2012 at 3:23 pm

Look at you, dyeing and straightening your hair, working out and cleaning! A girly-girl, who is opnionated, funny and has a foul mouth, and is married to someone else, thats a description of my dream-girl!

miss_grundy March 24, 2012 at 8:19 pm

Actually, he is a Newyorican, a New York Puerto Rican. He can't speak Spanish to save his life. I think he hates himself and it shows by the stupid stuff he says.

freakishlywrong March 23, 2012 at 1:42 pm

Apparently, his son is embarrassed by him. We are too, Geraldo's son, we are too.

Exhausted66 March 23, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Today, we are all Cruz Rivera.

samsuncle March 23, 2012 at 1:42 pm

What is Geraldo hiding under his mustache…remains of his breakfast, semial fluid, e coli, santorum? And the answer is ……….

el_donaldo March 23, 2012 at 1:46 pm

all of them.

From the looks of that moustache, he could be hiding Roger Ailes underneath there.

Gleem McShineys March 23, 2012 at 2:35 pm

There's a fallacious argument under there, which is attached to an ambulatory penis, which is attached to a parade-float, which is shaped like a moustache.

SexySmurf March 23, 2012 at 1:43 pm

Let's not forget he also had a can of ice tea. You know, ice tea, like the rapper who wanted to kill cops. Therefor if you drink ice tea people are going to perceive you as a cop killer.

flamingpdog March 23, 2012 at 1:53 pm

And I bet it was mother-fucking iced tea, too, also.

Biff March 23, 2012 at 1:59 pm

Didn't even Bill O'Reilly refer to it as motherfucking iced tea?

I really never could understand the pants thing…
If you wanna act like a gangster, take a look at the old Italian mob guys… track suits!! At least then you can fucking run!! With the baggy pants you gotta hold them up when you run… so you can only take one arm full of shit…

Just sayin'.

Fare la Volpe March 23, 2012 at 2:02 pm

It's actually an effort to make your pants look heavy, as if to suggest you have weapons in your pockets weighing them down.

Also shows that you're open to a little butt sex on the DL. Either one.

DaRooster March 23, 2012 at 3:42 pm

I still often debate coming up behind them and jerking their pants down… daily.

Swampgas_Man March 23, 2012 at 4:53 pm

I always thought it was related to having your belt and shoelaces removed when you go to prison.

larryfinexx March 23, 2012 at 1:44 pm

Wouldn't it make more sense to tell dark skinned children not to go out at all? Just stay at home and watch TV and drink grape soda, and you'll stay out of trouble.

chicken_thief March 23, 2012 at 2:05 pm

Betterz yet, can't we just ban "the coloredz" from having kids? I mean, other than the lady folk house servants having sex with their masters, they don't need to be having no sexy fun times, do they?

By that lojik, it's not the Iraqis who killed US America soldiers in Operation Iraq Liberation who are responsible for their deaths, but the douchebag who revealed their positions on Faux Newz while playing pretend war correspondent. Right Jerry?*

*he was, but not for the silly argument I was trying to make… more along the lines of war supporter, shilling war propaganda to prop up the actual assholes who wanted the war in the first place.

CivicHoliday March 23, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Every time I see a news story about some CEO ripping off the American public for millions of dollars and ruining thousands of peoples lives, he is always wearing a 3-piece suit. Therefore, I will henceforth start stabbing everyone I see wearing business attire. Your fault not mine, you suspicious looking brooks brothers wearing fuckers!

It would be an instant reflexive action.

Um, Geraldo? You do realize that people stopped listening to you on or about April 1986, right?

RadioStalingrad March 23, 2012 at 2:07 pm

Great pull, EQ. Two things funny about that idiocy. First, he was digging up dirt as that's all they found in the vault. And then, his autobiography is called Exposing Myself.
What an ass musket.

ChessieNefercat March 24, 2012 at 11:28 am

Is an ass musket douchier than an asshat? I hope so, because it is becoming evident that "asshat" just is not strong enough for the stupid out there.

Geraldo math:
white lady+hoodie=going to yoga class
dark skinned kid+hoodie=thug you can shoot on sight

Whenever you wonder if some people can get even more loathesome, they always come through in the end.

Boojum_Reborn March 23, 2012 at 1:59 pm

Oh, but white lady+hoodie=going to yoga class = willing to have sex in that alley. Advanced math.

Wilcoxyz March 23, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Even if we could get all young black males to dress like Erkel, the Zimmermans of this world will still be carrying guns and 'afraid for their lives.'

But by the same token, Geraldo, can a black person now fire on anyone in a klan robe and blame it on the scary hood? Obviously, the fear would be valid.

Ahem; that's Urkel, with a U.

For a white guy, I've probably been giving off a cholo vibe with the shaved head and goatee. I should probably go clean-shaven on my face and grow out my hair. Now Geraldo, about how that porn-stache makes those around you feel . . . uncomfortable . . .

I feel sad about what Rivera has become. Once upon a time he was reporter exposing injustices and even helping to organize benefit concerts pre- we are the world. Before that he was, no shit, an activist, lawyer. Or maybe he was just a cynical pandering opportunist all along.

elgin_pelican March 23, 2012 at 2:17 pm

He spoke at my HS graduation. He was a consumer affairs reporter for WABC in New York. Used to be an actual human back in the day.

MarionNYNY March 23, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Yeah, but then he exposed conditions at Willowbrook, and became a big name and there was a benefit to raise funds for 1:1 care for the developmentally delayed and now shit John Lennon, Yoko Ono, and Elton John among others were there at Madison Square Garden and I was IN high school and I was there or maybe I'm hallucinating the big crush I had on him when I was a tween. Jesus, couldn't have been the same guy, right?

bureaucrap March 23, 2012 at 3:05 pm

He probably decided at some point that for a couple million a year , sounding like a babbling idiot and being willing to hold yourself up to the ridicule of the masses was worth it. And I have to say, if someone offered me a couple million a year to sound like a moron, I'd half consider babbling all the way to the bank.

If only Trayvon was armed, this hoodie controversy would never have surfaced.

flamingpdog March 23, 2012 at 1:58 pm

I can't remember, when Geraldo was all over the Jon-Benet Ramsey murder case back in the day, did he blame it on her for wearing short skirts and lotsa eye-liner?

Biff March 23, 2012 at 2:07 pm

I certainly blamed her parents for dressing her that way…

Well, not her, but the eyeliner itself is the real culprit there.

SorosBot March 23, 2012 at 2:00 pm

The preponderance of hoodies could not be because they've been a teen fashion statement for TWENTY FUCKING YEARS!!!! Nope…only 20 million gangstas wear them. Like my 3 teen kids. Every time you see them in the alcove at church, they're wearing a hoodie. Every time you see them stick up for each other when they're in trouble, they're wearing a hoodie. Every time you see them head out to scouts or music lessons, they're wearing a hoodie. Give me a fucking break.

Twenty? At least twenty-five; they were definitely big even when I was a preteen / early teen waaaaay back in the late 80s.

OK…I'll conceded that cause I don't really remember the 80's. Last I remember I was graduating high school in '79 then I woke up married in '96.

590 Ameros for a freakin' hoodie???
"A modal/cotton blend makes this Maison Martin Margiela hoodie light and soft, but it's about more than just being comfortable. Wear it with the hood on for an intelligently casual look; play with its zip-on design for a standout style that's sure to turn heads."

That certainly turned my head. So I could vomit in the trash can instead in my lap.

Yes, but for $590 you too can cop a standout gangsta 'tude complete with an insouciant "intelligently casual look."

Just today I was wondering which Fox/Limbaugh axis dumbass would be the first to even dare to say something about this case. But then I thought "no, they can't. This is just too sad. They won't possibly try to…" Then Geraldo jumps in. Well, now that one of them is in it up to his surgically tightened wattle I hope they're all in. I hope that everyone from Rush to lil Sarah! is inspired to share with us the insights into American culture they've gained from reviewing this obvious case of community policing being undermined by urban fashion choices. This was nothing more than a wardrobe malfunction, i.e., if you're "urban" you might want to dress more "rural" just to be safe.

bureaucrap March 23, 2012 at 3:10 pm

We used to joke that there was a "fashion police" capable of imposing the death penalty (back in the day, the crimes were velour tracksuits and neon green anything, but I see that neon green is making a comeback). It seems to me, however, that if the fashion police is real, their decisions should come out of New York, Paris or Milan, not Sanford FL.

In any case, I'm going to stick to Ralph Lauren (nee Lipschitz) from now on. Kitschy, but safe.

I think this demands an in depth, patented, Gerardo – get- the- facts investigative reporting piece. 'Ol Gerry needs to put on a hoodie and go walking around Florida neighborhoods and see if this is really true! Maybe in Zimmerman's neighborhood.

Redhead March 23, 2012 at 3:43 pm

Well at least Fox News is consistent in their shunning of the logic, and all.

rambone March 23, 2012 at 3:56 pm

You know the old Johnny Cash song, ‘Don’t take your gun to town, son. Leave your gun at home.’

If only Johny Cash had written a song encouraging people to leave their hoodies at home, Trayvon might be alive today.

Or, I dunno, maybe if Zimmerman had listened to the song Cash actually wrote, and left the fucking gun at home.

Also, too, I liked the uncomfortable look on Geraldo's face when he recited the lyrics and it slowly dawned on him that he was a hairs-breadth away from accidentally blaming the shooter, instead of the victim, thereby suggesting that it may not be a good idea for every borderline mental defective with delusions of adequacy to drive around packing heat.

Hoods are reserved for certain venerable Southern organizations to wear. Black people should never wear hoods, particularly in the South.

smitallica March 23, 2012 at 4:25 pm

Watch out, Mark Zuckerberg. It's only a matter of time.

Flat_Earther March 23, 2012 at 4:28 pm

On second thought…

Maybe Geraldo is right. Black people have been killed in the South because of hoodies since the 1860s. Granted it was mostly white people wearing the hoodie, but it was black people that were dying. There is a correlation between dead black people and hoodies.

Swampgas_Man March 23, 2012 at 5:01 pm

So, Geraldo will be cool with it if someone shoots his son because his son is clearly asking for it? I feel sorry for that kid.

Soylent Green March 23, 2012 at 6:25 pm

How old's Geraldo's son by now? 40?

Also: Lincoln's hat to blame for assassination! Folks, can you really blame Booth? What kind of dick goes to a theater with a foot tall hat!?

Geraldo Rivera: Trayvon Martin’s Hoodie ‘Is Responsible’ For His Death

Shorter: If those race-sluts didn't dress that way, they wouldn't be getting shot.

I'll remember that next time I see a Klan rally…

Geraldo, eh…you're not from around here, are ya', boy..?

"Its crime scene surveillance tapes. Every time you see someone stick up a 7-Eleven, the kid is wearing a hoodie."

And yet, Geraldo, you fucking jackass, the actual convenience store clerk who had to muster up his courage to sell skittles and iced tea to a kid dressed like every other kid his age didn't feel a need to shoot the kid dead!

No, some asshole with a gun, in a truck, followed the kid, who didn't put his hood up until he felt threatened by the creep who was stalking him. Said asshole then murdered the kid in cold blood. Fifteen robberies in the neighborhood? That poor kid had every reason to fear Zimmerman and his creepy, menacing, aggressive behavior, not the other way around.

Trayvon would have been OK if he had been wearing one of these? http://www.cafepress.com/+fox_news_hooded_sweatsh

Blame the Hoodie? GIVE ME A BREAK. It was raining …. the kid was running …..and being stalked …….and ….SORRY, but we don't ALL use Totes umbrellas when going to the corner grocery store for a snack. Nor should we risk losing our very lives while doing so! Mr. Rivera: you should be ashamed of your inane, insensitive comments about Trayvon, and your attempts to create "excuses" for the inexcusable actions of judge-jury-and-executioner George Zimmerman (and those that would imitate him). We are becoming a society that seeks and sees threats under every rock; a frightened society that sees danger with every “other” that is not just like us;  a manipulated society with control-freaks running rampant (whether politicians or mayors or police chiefs or individuals). Power-hungry people that are only too eager to take advantage of our fears; that are only too eager to get away with anything and everything that they can, that are only too willing to deprive us of our our liberty (and sometimes our lives)…..all in the name of defending it. What a shell game. But were it only a game. For it includes the worst provisions of the Patriot Act, the police spying on innocent people, papers-please and stop&frisk gone wild, the “right” to indefinitely detain Americans without trial, and out-of-control homicidal vigilantes such as we have tragically seen here. It’s a slippery slope that ultimately leads to a police state/Orwellian mentality that is more typical of places such as China or Cuba – NOT the America that I know and love. We USED to stand proud and free, and contrasted our open society to such sorry places. Now we imitate them. Our country is better than this. Our values are better than this. WE are better than this. Don’t blame the hoodie……blame what we are becoming, and allowing, and doing as a society. As Shakespeare once said: the fault is not in our stars, but in ourselves. For we have come to accept things that should NEVER be accepted by a freedom-loving people. It’s time… it’s way past time, to have the strength and courage to reverse course.

I'm sure before the cops answer the phone and Zimmerman is on the line, they see the caller ID and say "That fucking dildo Zimmerman is calling again, who wants to pick up"?

Greta_Garbage March 25, 2012 at 3:43 pm

geraldo resembles the cowardly lion from the wizard of oz. should we shoot him now before he makes it safely back to kansas?
