Victory: Geraldo Apologizes to Trayvon's Parents
UPDATE: Thanks to nearly 20,000 Presente.org members, Geraldo Rivera apologized to Trayvon Martin's parents on Fox News on Sunday, April 1st.
Trayvon's parents accepted the apology and added "So if being a suspicious, walking in the rain with your hoodie on is a crime, then I guess the world is doing something wrong.”
Geraldo Rivera made a reckless statement on national television about the killing of Trayvon Martin. As one of the leading Latino journalists in the country, Geraldo should immediately apologize and set the record straight.
While Trayvon’s parents and the entire country are clamoring for justice, demanding the immediate arrest of Zimmerman, who is still free, Mr. Rivera have decided to divert our attention away form the sad truth at core of this national tragedy: an innocent young man was killed in cold blood – not for wearing a hoodie – but for being a Black young man.
Tell Geraldo Rivera to apologize to Trayvon's family and focus instead on reporting accurately about why Trayvon Martin was killed.
