Heraldo is first of all, Hispanic. And the shooter, in this instance, Jorge Zimmerman, also LOOKS Hispanic. Therefore Heraldo was in a position of DEFENDING the shooter against charges of “racism”, which is considered to be a very bad thing among “people of color”.
But wearing a hoodie, that is a conspicuous act in itself, one that effectively HIDES most racial characteristics. Kind of like a unisex burqa, meant to conceal, and often, other than merely facial features.
Liberal defecate rocks about persons who might be carrying a weapon, but they calmly accept clothing style that may be concealing much more than a Glock?
Could have been a vest bomb or a hand grenade under that hoodie.
Every night on my local news, I watch teenagers doing the perp walk and they are almost always wearing hoodies. They are good for committing crimes (more comfy than a ski mask) and excellent for hiding from the cameras after an arrest.
There is no such thing as a person who "looks Hispanic." It's just a media and leftist stereotype. Nor is there any such thing as "people of color," since all humans, except albinos, have melanin in their skin to some extent or another; the proper term (reading into the mind of the ignorant who use it) is "non-whites" or "non-Caucasians." (That's more than mere semantics, because changing the vocabulary can change the society, as tyrants like Hitler and Lenin and Stalin and countless others knew.)
Hispanics (defined as people whose native or ancestral language is Spanish, but sometimes extended to people whose native or ancestral language is Portuguese) can be white, black, American Indian, or even Oriental looking, or any possible combination of these. The populations of Spanish-speaking countries are generally very diverse racially, and yes, there is racial tension among the various groups in those countries.
For the record, both Geraldo Rivera and George Zimmerman are half-Hispanic and half-white European in ancestry.
Even though Rivera is often obnoxious, he specifically stated Friday on his radio show that from a strict legal perspective, the only possible verdict in the Zimmerman case was NOT GUILTY.
Geraldo is about as Hispanic as your Aunt Tilly. He was born to a Jewish mother and and a Puerto Rican dad. "Jerry Rivers" "discovered his roots" when he switched from Keft Wing Law to News Reporter It worked, he got hired, he was a disaster, but married the boss' daughter. His freshman Spanish is execrable, especially with that obnoxo NYC Queens Accent.
He is an attorney, and attended the NY State Merchant Marine Academy, where he did learn to sail, which is the only good thing I can think to say about him. He is an interesting guy who cynically worked the Left ... and now wants to run as a Republican, because no one on his side takes him seriously.
The thing with the hoodie is plain stupid. Instead of sympathizing with the gang-banging morons, some one like Obama or Holder really ought to level with the young Negro bastards who are causing so much trouble. They're victims OK, victims of an idiotic commercial culture. Tattoos, weird, expensive clothes, made up ghetto names, tribal criminality, it all makes them legends in their own minds, stars in their own movie, in the meantime they can neither read nor write, or be understood by anyone outside their group.
Encouraged by the likes of Obama, too many of them die at the hands of other Negro morons. Unfortunately when they act outside of their own milieu, they will also suffer at the hands of people outside of their bogus culture. The score is going to be tough guy ghetto wannabes '0,' Armed America one hell of a lot more.
A pity. And unnecessary.
