Zimmerman needs to be knocked out in court

Is this how low we’ve sunk? Really? If for nothing else, can we come together as a community to pump the breaks on what will surely be a quantum leap backward for African-Americans? Trust and believe. Wait, I might be putting the horse in front of the cart.

In case you haven’t heard, on Wednesday, Feb. 5, an announcement hit the media that a murderer who was found innocent has chosen an opponent for a purposed celebrity boxing match. Let’s detail this a little more to add further fuel to the fire … we’ll now name names.

Feb. 5 would have been the 19th birthday of Trayvon Martin. Ironically, it was on that day that a celebrity boxing promotor and trainer named Damon Feldman chose to announce that his client George Zimmerman, Martin’s killer, had chosen his opponent for a celebrity charity boxing match. According to Feldman, when Zimmerman issued an open challenge to fight anyone, thousands (an estimated 15,000 was reported) of responses were received via email.

Zimmerman was quoted in an article on Radar.com as saying, “Boxing isn’t new to me. It’s something I had picked up well before the incident, and it’s something that I liked, I enjoyed, and I kept up with it, and I was able to lose a tremendous amount of weight and get a healthy lifestyle.”

So with that bravado around this proposed match, is it safe to assume that the following applicants were considered: best-selling author and Broadway star Mike Tyson, “Dancing with the Stars” contestant Floyd Mayweather or Nike spokesperson Jon “Bones” Jones?

Probably not, huh? Well, because race isn’t an issue, perhaps Justin Beiber would be worthy; his actual behavior is much worse then what Martin was accused of and he falls near the same age bracket. Nah, that won’t produce the desired effect.

Here’s what Zimmerman had in mind. In yet another interview, this one with the Huffington Post, Feldman said that Zimmerman was really interested in Kanye West. The reason? It seems that West has a penchant for attacking defenseless people.

So there we have it. The plan is revealed. Target the musicians in the genre most associated with African-American males and prove to America that they can’t even defend that. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Eminem, Machine Gun Kelly, Justin Timberlake and others run the charts, and Zimmerman strips them of their bravado and reveals who they really are. This was confirmed on the low in the same Huffington Post interview: “All these rappers are saying that they want to fight [Zimmerman],” Feldman said. “So we’ll see who comes on board. He’s boxing, training every day. He’s open to fight anybody, but we’ll pick whoever is best.”

On Wednesday, it was revealed that DMX is best. Forty-three-year-old Earl Simmons, who had—and who some say still has—a severe drug habit and seems psychologically unstable, to say the least, was picked to be picked apart.

In fact, DMX can even be cast as the villain. Here’s what he said to TMZ: “I am going to beat the living f—k out [of] him … I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f—k him right up.”

People, we need to nip this in the bud. No offense to DMX or anyone else, but the time and place to fight Zimmerman is not in the ring. He showed that he plays for keeps, and he had a whole justice system and damn near half the United States backing him. Hip-hop nation, are we ready for that fight?

Holla. Till then, enjoy the nightlife.
