Travon Martin Hoodie blamed by Geraldo for Florida Teen’s Death

Geraldo Rivera on Fox News this morning went on a rant about hoodies of all things.  Why?  Because dead teenager Trayvon Martin was wearing one the night Zimmerman killed him.

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

“That’s an automatic reflex,” said Rivera.  “When you see a black or Latino youngster, particularly on the street, you walk to the other side of the street. You try to avoid that confrontation. Trayvon Martin, God bless him.  He’s an innocent kid, a wonderful kid, a box of Skittles in his hand, he didn’t deserve to die, but I’ll bet you money if he didn’t have that hoodie on, that nutty neighborhood watch guy wouldn’t have responded in that violent and aggressive way.”

Fox & Friends Steve Doocy  said that New Yorkers on Wednesday, had a Million Hoodie March in support.  Similar rallies are planned in the coming days in Greenville, South Carolina and Norfolk, Virginia, among other places.

“You cannot rehabilitate the hoodie. I understand that the reaction might be overzealous or even irrational in some extent.  You are not going to rehabilitate the hoodie. Stop wearing it!  There are some things that are almost inevitable. I’m not suggesting that Trayvon Martin had any kind of weapon or anything.  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 is raining out or you are at a track meet, leave the hoodie home.”

Rehabilitate the Hoodie?  If he wasn’t wearing his pants in alleged, gangsta style down low, maybe he could have outrun Zimmerman too.  Maybe the woman who got attacked could have run faster if she wasn’t wearing high heels too. Please!

Riviera advises his own kid, who has darker skin not to wear a hoodie.

Zimmerman told the dispatcher he was following him.  He followed him in his car, got out and chased the kid while his girlfriend heard it all.  Though Florida has the  “Stand Your Ground”  law as do many states, we don’t think Zimmerman has a leg to stand on.  It’s not the law that killed him.

We can just see the store shelves now.  Hoodies with the inscription, “I am Trayvon Martin.”  Be nice if they glow in the dark so no one else gets chased down, shot, and killed by the block crime patrol civilian.

Lastly, we have The President of the United States chiming in saying, “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.”

The Department of Justice and the U.S. Attorney’s Office is investigating. http://www.cnn.com/2012/03/23/justice/florida-teen-shooting/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

 

Stay tuned and have a good day, one day it will be your last.  God Bless.

The Census is a big reflection of who our Nation is.  ” This data is used to determine the appropriate number of seats in the House of Representatives.  It provides key population numbers for Congress and the Administration to determine how federal dollars flow to the states and the data is used by researchers, advocates and policy makers to develop reports, social service programs, and make critical policy decisions.” 

They’re here, they’re queer and want to be counted in the U.S. Census. 

It’s crazy – the U.S. Census Bureau wants an accurate count of everyone in the country – but there’s no question in the survey that asks if you are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.  http://www.queerthecensus.org/site/c.jeJLIVOxEnH/b.5474287/k.9C4D/Queer_the_Census.htm 

If you are gay, green, transgender or whatever the census helps determine districts and funding.  Asking or telling if you are gay is not relevant, you are an American filling out a piece of paper.  End of story. I don’t yell out what I do under the sheets and I don’t want to hear about you being a queer.  To be referred to as queer,  the census must be rude for so many yet,  “For the first time in history, the Census will count both unmarried same-sex partners and legally married same sex spouses in its survey! This advancement is due in great part to advocacy by the Task Force, and our members and supporters.” Again, what does it matter?  No one gets married, homo or heterosexual on the basis of what district you live in.  Unless maybe it is 90210- Beverly Hills!

People, just people.  Black, White, Mixed, Muslim, Christian, Jew, rich, poor, all being born while some are dying.

To ensure a successful 2010 Decennial Census, the Recovery Act includes $1 billion to hire additional personnel for partnership and outreach efforts to minority communities and hard-to-reach populations, increase targeted media purchases, and ensure proper management of other operational and programmatic risks.http://www.census.gov/recovery/index.html

Sound like Acorn?

$1 Billion for minorities?  Is that racist and prejudiced in and of itself?  Does the government assume minorities are stupid and can’t fill out the damned questionnaire?  The President of The United States of America is a minority and I think he can figure it out without $1 Billion extra spent on the instructions.

The programmatic risk relies on the post office ensuring delivery of the census and its return back to the government.   As for hard to reach populations, where in America is there a hard to reach population?    American Samoa where we shipped Guantanamo Bay refugees?  Do we get to count our servicemen and woman even though most of their votes were not counted in the election?

The bigger problem and most offensive is to the black or negro population, as the census refers to-  is for people who are not white.

But some blacks have complained that one of the form’s questions is outdated, offensive, and a throwback to the Jim Crow era.   Question No. 9 on the form asks: “What is Person 1’s race?”  The first selection, no surprise, is White. The second box includes choices in the following order – Black, African-Am., or Negro. Some younger blacks, particularly those under age 40 interviewed by various media outlets, say that the use of “Negro” has no place in today’s social lexicon and it sets the race back in time, via http://www.thedefendersonline.com/2010/01/11/negro-please-some-blacks-offended-by-2010-census-form/

Rather rude choices.  I wonder what Barack Hussein Obama will reply, as he has referred to himself as a mutt.  No matter your thoughts on race and politics what does it matter?  By now we’re all bored with Harry Reid…but-
