“Every time you see someone sticking up a 7-11, the kid is wearing a hoodie. […] When you see a black or Latino youngster, particularly on the street, you walk to the other side of the street.”
Not only on choice of apparel, but on choice of walking on the street as a black youngster.
You walk to the other side of the street because you are a racist, Geraldo!
So sticking up a 7-11 deserves to get you shot and killed now? I guess in the minds of a lot of middle-class white folks …
Of course, Rivera’s logic contradicts itself. If Black youth are so scary just by existing that supposedly reasonable people go to lengths to get away from them, wasn’t ZIMMERMAN the one “asking for trouble” by actively pursuing Trayvon? But hey, racism has its own internal “logic.”
Tell me again about Zimmerman being Latino and how that means he didn’t kill Trayvon because of racism. Anti-black racism is alive & well.
