Fox News' Geraldo Rivera explains why an all-female jury found George Zimmerman not guilty in the Trayvon Martin murder case. (4:11)

OF COURSE BACK HERE IN THE

STATES, PEOPLE HAVE BEEN

OBSESSED WITH THE GEORGE

ZIMMERMAN MURDER TRIAL.

PEOPLE ARE TRACKING IT LIKE IT

WAS A BLACK TEENAGER IN A GATED

COMMUNITY.

AND ON SATURDAY... I KNOW.

PEOPLE ARE EXCITED.

AND ON SATURDAY, WE GOT JUSTICE.

>> WE THE JURY FIND GEORGE

ZIMMERMAN NOT GUILTY.

>> FOLKS, THIS IS A VICTORY FOR

THE RULE OF LAW.

IN THAT FLORIDA APPARENTLY NO

LONGER HAS RULES OR LAWS.

NOW, THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA, OF

COURSE, THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA OUT

THERE WAS SHOCKED BUT ONE MAN

SAW THIS COMING.

FOX NEWS LEGAL CORRESPONDENT AND

INVENTOR OF THE LIP-HOODIE,

GERALDO RIVERA.

>> IT'S A DARK NIGHT.

A 6'2 "HOODIE-WEARING STRANGER

IS IN THE IMMEDIATE HOUSING

COMPLEX.

HOW WOULD THE LADIES OF THAT

JURY HAVE REACTED?

I SUBMIT THAT IF THEY WERE

ARMED, THEY WOULD HAVE SHOT AND

KILLED TRAYVON MARTIN A LOT

SOONER THAN GEORGE ZIMMERMAN

DID.

>> Stephen: GREAT ANALYSIS, AND

IT PROVES THIS WAS A FAIR TRIAL.

AS THE BILL OF RIGHTS CLEARLY

STATES, THE ACCUSED SHALL BE

TRIED BY A JURY OF PEOPLE WHO

WOULD HAVE DONE... WHO WOULD

HAVE DONE THE MURDER FASTER.

BUT, FOLKS, EVEN THOUGH JUSTICE

WAS SERVED THAT DID NOT STOP

SOME AMERICANS FROM RUDELY

ACCEPTING IT BACK TO THE

KITCHEN, TAKING TO THE STREETS

TO PROTEST SO-CALLED RACIAL

INEQUALITY.

KNOCK IT OFF!

BECAUSE YES, AMERICA HAD RACIAL

INEQUALITY BUT BY MY LATEST

CALCULATIONS, IT'S EVIDENTLY...

IT IS NOW A TIE.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

STICK WITH ME.

STICK WITH ME.

HERE'S HOW IT BREAKS DOWN.

OBVIOUSLY ZIMMERMAN'S ACQUITTAL

IS SEEN AS A POINT FOR WHITE

PEOPLE.

(DING).

THEN AGAIN, O.J.'S ACQUITTAL WAS

ONE FOR BLACK PEOPLE.

(DING).

OBAMA, WITH TWO BLACK POINTS,

ONE FOR EACH ELECTION (DING,

DING).

AND WHITES LOSE ONE POINT FOR

JOE BIDEN.

(BUZZER) OF COURSE FOR THE

PREVIOUS 43 WHITE PRESIDENTS.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

FOR THE PREVIOUS 4 WHITE

PRESIDENTS, WHITE PEOPLE

ACCUMULATED ONE POINT.

(DING) NOW, JAZZ CLEARLY A POINT

FOR AFRICAN-AMERICANS.

(DING).

BUT WHITE PEOPLE GET A POINT FOR

SMOOTH JAZZ.

(DING) NOW, CRUCIAL.

IN THE CIVIL WAR, WHITE PEOPLE

GET ONE POINT FOR WINNING THE

FIGHT TO END SLAVERY.

(DING) AND ANOTHER POINT FOR

LOSING THE FIGHT TO KEEP

SLAVERY.

(DING).

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

EVIDENTLY NO POINTS FOR BLACK

PEOPLE IN THAT ONE.

ODD TIME TO SIT THINGS OUT.

ANYWAY, AS YOU CAN SEE, AS YOU

CAN SEE, IT'S EVEN NOW.

OKAY?

SO WE CAN JUST STOP THIS WHOLE

RACIAL THING HERE.

WHITE PEOPLE, STOP BEING SO

SCARED WHERE OF YOUNG BLACK MEN.

AND YOUNG BLACK MEN, STOP BEING

SO SCARY.

OKAY.

TAKE SOME PERSONAL

RESPONSIBILITY FOR HOW WHITE

PEOPLE FEEL AROUND YOU.

OKAY.

LOSE THE HOODIES.

WEAR SOMETHING NONTHREATENING.

YOU KNOW WHAT?

START BUYING YOUR CLOTHES

WHEREVER MARTIN LAWRENCE AND

TYLER PERRY SHOP.

I MEAN, THEY LOOK HARMLESS.
