Boxing George Zimmerman: All Money Is Not Good Money
We have become a circus. Today would have been Trayvon Martin's 19th birthday. Today marks the third day of jury selection in yet another Florida stand-your-ground case wherein a white guy shot and killed a black teenager for no discernible reason. Today it was announced that George Zimmerman will fight rapper DMX in a "celebrity boxing match." DMX , picked out of 15,000 applicants, says he will "beat the living f--k out him." Zimmerman, who was boxing for weight loss "prior to the incident" and has lately been making really bad "art" for which he may be sued, says "some" money from the match will go to charity. Boxing promoter Damon Feldman says he's never hurt anyone and anyway "it's all about the show." His brilliant idea has been met with as much righteous fury as it deserves, and three petitions - two Change.org, one White House. Sign 'em all, then pray for the soul of our country.
