The white-hot flood of anger over the death of Trayvon Martin has been met with a lot of strange deflecting by people eager to dodge charges of race-motivation. The old It wasn't racially motivated because George Zimmerman is half-Latino, for example. The most ridiculous, and hilarious, though, comes from Geraldo Riviera, as such things usually do. He says he wants Zimmerman "investigated," sure, but we also need to bring in the fashion police: "I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin's death as George Zimmerman was."
