Geraldo is apologetic after his remarks he made about Trayvon Martin last week, when he urged parents not to allow their kids to wear hoodies because the look can bring on violence and aggressive behavior.  I have obscured the main point that someone shot and killed an unarmed teenager,” Rivera said in an e-mail to Politico. “I apologize to anyone offended by what one prominent black conservative called my ‘very practical and potentially life-saving campaign urging black and Hispanic parents not to let their children go around wearing hoodies. ”  

Russell Simmons apparently wasn’t buying, slamming Geraldo apology “Geraldo, your apology is (B.S.)! Your apology is nothing but a defense of a racist, backward thing you already said. And I am a yogi, and I generally don’t speak like this, but I have to say it like it is. It is a non-apology apology that continues to blame the victim for their appearance.”   Share your thoughts… Do you think Geraldo was sincere? FYI thisandthatreaders!!!
