Geraldo Rivera - in this latest episode of the plastic out of touch Fox News attempt at being relevant - attempted to deflect the importance of the "I Can't Breath" Eric Garner world wide protests by saying that Miami Heat NBA Basketball Player Lebron James, instead of wearing an "I Can't Breath" t-shirt should instead be wearing a "Be A Better Father" t-shirt to address the absentee Black Fathers that are not living up to their positions to their children.
While the issue of absentee Fathers are a truth in the Black Community, I feel that for to Geraldo Rivera to say something like this at a time when a true solidarity is manifesting world wide between people of all ages, races and backgrounds to protest the Police killings and abuse of Black men and women was a cheap ploy to distract the masses of what is happening that in essence is striking fear in the Mainstream Media outlets such as Fox News!
They don't like the fact that all of their hard work to demonize Black people hasn't successfully worked due to the fact that the protests have now gone beyond the borders to other countries that would have NEVER known about it if not for Social Media.
So by pointing out an ongoing issue that definitely needs working on was simply a way of attempting to pull the imagery of Black men back into the dark ages of time when the mainstream wanted to believe that we were all pleasure seeking hedonistic creatures who only thought about their next sexual conquest before moving on to the next one without even as much as a second thought.
But if are truly that then why didn't Geraldo Rivera tell the whole ENTIRE story why Black men were coerced into being just this way for several hundred years in order to produce more slaves for their slave-masters?
You see, Geraldo Rivera seemed to forget that part!
