  •  Blaming the victim (4+ / 0-)

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

    So Trayvon Martin is 50% responsible for his own murder because he wore a hooded sweatshirt?  What's next?  Trayvon was 75% responsible for his own murder because he ran away from a stranger with a gun, and only guilty people run?

    Dumb does not do justice to Rivera's blaming the victim here.  We need to look past Rivera's well-earned reputation for stupidity and look on this as any other Fox attempt to spin attention away from the facts by spuriously blaming the victim for his own murder.  

    Walking while black might not be a crime, but walking in a hoodie while black is just asking to be murdered?  What kind of bigoted horseshit is that?
