Via HipHopWired: Geraldo Rivera has offered a series of strong opinions publicly in times past, usually at the expense of Black people and behavior he didn’t approve of. The Fox News contributor was up to his old tricks again after stating in an interview that Hip-Hop has caused more harm to Black and Brown lives than racism.
Rivera was a guest on HuffPost Live Tuesday (Feb. 17), and the journalist dished about his appearance on NBC’s The Celebrity Apprentice program among other things. Rivera, who shared that he’s been at his gig for 45 years, shared his past relationship with the show’s host Donald Trump and his desire to jump into reality television.
When host Josh Zepps asked Rivera about his political affiliation, Rivera named himself a “militant moderate” and shot off some bullet points proving his stances. But it was his views on Hip-Hop culture that proved to be the most alienating and pointed.
