Geraldo, Shamed By Nation and Family, Apologizes

Posted By on Wed, Mar 28, 2012 at 1:00 PM

From Rivera's Facebook yesterday:


...according to my legion of critics, by putting responsibility on what kids wear instead of how people react to them I have obscured the main point that someone shot and killed an unarmed teenager, and I began today’s program with a sincere and heartfelt apology to anyone I may have offended by my crusade to warn minority families of the danger to their young sons inherent in gangsta style clothing; like hoodies.

Keep in mind that he's still not repentant in his belief that hoodies are "gangsta" clothes, or that he feels that Martin was asking for trouble in wearing a hooded sweatshirt while being a black male. But I think this is as good as it's going to get, folks.
