The Ultimate in Non-Apologies

More

Via The Wire, this is awesome:

Geraldo Rivera finally apologized for his Trayvon Martin "hoodie" comment in what has got to be the lamest apology ever to come from someone older than 6. "I apologize to anyone offended by what one prominent black conservative called my 'very practical and potentially life-saving campaign urging black and Hispanic parents not to let their children go around wearing hoodies,'"
I think the apology says more about Geraldo, then the original statement. It really is a marvel. How much self-awareness can on person lack?
