Now for the Travesty Of American Dumbfuckery…..
From CBS News.com:
PHILADELPHIA – Damon Feldman has made a name for himself over the years promoting many celebrity boxing matches, from Danny Bonaduce to Jose Canseco to Dustin Diamond. His newest fight is likely to be his most explosive yet.
Feldman says he’s chosen rap star DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons to fight George Zimmerman, the man known for the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, reports CBS Philadelphia. Simmons is 43 years old, and Zimmerman is 30 years old.
“I’ve gotten over 15,000 emails, I had to end [the submissions to fight Zimmerman] there,” Feldman told a Philadelphia radio show. “Very angry, I had everything from celebrities to [rapper] The Game… I got into it with him on TMZ the other day. Floyd Mayweather Sr. is the referee with this, we’re very excited.”
“It’s DMX. Hip hop star, legend. He called him out on TMZ this week. It’s controversy versus controversy. I know this country wants to see this guy get [George Zimmerman's] [expletive] kicked.”
Feldman says that Zimmerman is already getting ready for the fight.
“He said he’s been training, yes. He’s training every day,” Feldman said. “I have to see if DMX is training, if he’s not training, we’ll have to go in a different direction.”
Feldman says that there will not be tickets sold to the fight, and it will be on internet pay-per-view only. “Nobody knows where it’s going to be at,” Feldman said. The fight is scheduled for March 14th, 2014.
Thank you CBS News.com.
It’s official … X gonna give it to George Zimmerman — TMZ has learned, rapper DMX has just been named Zimmerman’s opponent in his upcoming celebrity boxing match.
Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman tells us, DMX was selected out of 15,000 applicants … all of whom wanted a piece of Zimmerman in the ring after he issued the open challenge to fight anyone willing to take him.
But no one wanted to beat Zimmerman’s ass more than DMX.
Thank you TMZ.
Now for some sanity in this Travesty Of American Dumbfuckery…..
Sign This Petition At The White House Petitions Page.
White House Petition to Stop George Zimmerman DMX Boxing Match
Stop George Zimmerman and Promoter Damon Feldman from using murder & racial hate in America for Profit
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.
Feldman says that he is aware of the petition but has not read it. “There are a lot of haters out there,” he says. “But I don’t see color. I’m just in this to make money. There’s an opportunity for me to catch a break here.”
This last statement says all one needs to know about Mr. Feldman’s character and motives. I need not comment on his lack of respect for the memory of Trayvon Benjamin Martin or Trayvon’s Family & Friends.
Meet Ms. Janet Dickerson, the Los Angles lady who started this petition….
I thought it was a complete demonstration of disrespect to Trayvon’s parents, to Trayvon himself and to the many people who feel impacted by this injustice,” Dickerson told NewsOne. “It became clear that people were really outraged by this, so I thought that it would certainly be worthwhile to put up this petition. And I see on his Twitter feed that he is trying to create a racialized event.”
SIGNATURES NEEDED BY MARCH 04, 2014 TO REACH GOAL OF 100,000: 85,270
TOTAL SIGNATURES ON THIS PETITION: 14,730
I appeal to your sense of common decency, please lets sign this petition.
