The Fox News Channel host also once spoke on Trayvon Martin and saying how wearing a hoodie got him killed.

During a “Race in America” panel that did not contain any African-American participants on last night’s Hannity, Geraldo Rivera took the opportunity to criticize LeBron James and other NBA players for wearing “I Can’t Breathe” t-shirts during warm-up practice at this weeks Cavaliers-Nets game in Brooklyn:

“I wondered to myself, what if LeBron James instead had a shirt, ‘Be a better father to your dad’ — I mean, ‘Be a better father to your son,’ ‘Raise your children,’” Rivera suggested. “Those difficult issues are not being dealt with by the black community because they are so complex, they are so deep-rooted, they are really so profoundly troubling that they don’t want to try.”

“And it is a victimization mentality that we can only motivate, when we are the victims,” he continued. “It goes in keeping with everything that’s happened to the black community and the generations preceding. It’s easy to demonstrate and be outraged when we are the victims. ‘Look what we are doing to us rather than what we are doing to ourselves.’ There’s a kind of urban suicide happening here that has to be dealt with.”
