An official boxing match between George Zimmerman and rapper DMX is scheduled to take place in the coming weeks.
Up until recently, would have never believed such a thing was even possible — let alone acceptable.
A petition is circulating to “stop George Zimmerman and Promoter Damon Feldman from using murder & racial hate in America for profit.”
The whitehouse.gov petition reads:
Celebrity Boxing Promoter Damon Feldman & George Zimmerman are attempting to promote and profit off of racial tensions in America.
Damon Feldman has been known for fixing fights and taking short cuts in the past in bypassing state requirements for fighters to obtain a license to box.
Mr Feldmans past should be highly considered in this regard if Feldman is not going through the proper channels to ensure the safety of the participants it puts lives at risk.
In addition the entire idea of this event is to use racial tensions to lure people in to purchase the event. this will only hurt America as it will continue to stir up racial tensions that have been on going in this nation for quite some time.
No Promoter or Celebrity Boxer should ever be allowed to use racial tension to profit.
Although the match would be entertaining, we’d have to agree. If the world can garner enough (100,000) signatures in favor of having Justin Bieber deported, then this should be easy — right?
