"If I Had a Son He'd Look Like Trayvon"

Have been meaning to get this up. It's a meaningful televised moment and not surprisingly one of my blog idols Ta-Nehisi Coates describes it aptly as, "pitch perfect" and "a stunning exercise in political minimalism."  



And here's one of the lesser ones. Not surprisingly it's brought to us by pseudo-journalist Geraldo Rivera and the Fox and Friends get-along-gang.

Watch:




My initial reaction was of course anger but it's marinated a few days and I've now reached the point where I'm just laughing at the stupidity.

I'd like to highlight the exchange between Geraldo and Steve Doocy here. Doocy (how appropriately is this guy named by the way) is so galled by the fact that "they" actually had a Million Hoodie March of all things(!) and then Geraldo's reply, "You cannot rehabilitate the hoodie!" SNL writers, where are you?
