Of Course There's Already A 'Geraldo In A Hoodie' Tumblr

03.23.12 4 Comments

When I was doing the post on Geraldo’s anti-hoodie comments earlier, one of the first things I did was a quick search for a photo of Geraldo wearing a hoodie. While I didn’t immediately find one, a Tumblr has already sprung up harnassing the collective power of the internet to find some. And guess what — Geraldo enjoys wearing a hoodie every now and then!

In case you need a reminding of how Geraldo feels about the sartorial deathtrap that is the hoodie…

“I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was…Every time you see someone sticking up a 7-11, the kid is wearing a hoodie. Every time you see a mugging on a surveillance camera or they get the old lady in the alcove, it’s a kid wearing a hoodie. You have to recognize that this whole stylizing yourself as a gangsta, you’re gonna be a gangsta wannabe? Well, people are going to perceive you as a menace…You can not rehabilitate the hoodie.”


Be safe out there, hoodie-wearers of the world. No one is safe anymore.

But the Miami Heat don’t care
