It’s happening: DMX is set to fight child-murderer George Zimmerman in a celebrity boxing match, according to TMZ. Just last week Zimmerman announced that he was looking for an opponent to join him in the ring for a 3 round “celebrity” boxing match. He claims that any proceeds he receives from the fight, in the event that he wins, will be donated to charity. I don’t know that the NRA counts as a “charity” Georgie Porgie, but I guess you can sort that out with the IRS.
Yonkers, NY native Earl “DMX” Simmons, never one to back down from a challenge, and like most Black Americans possessed with a seething hatred of George Zimmerman and everything that he represents, promptly tossed his hat into the ring. He says he’s going to “beat the living fuck out him” and has promised to piss on Zimmerman’s face after he pummels him into submission.
Words can not express how happy I am that this is happening.
Is it sad that this is the state of American race relations in the year 2014? Incredibly so. And it’s going to get ugly. The racists are going to be out in full force to support their poster boy. But hey, it’s happening, so we may as well root for the good guy. Or at least the guy representing the side that doesn’t condone racism and child murder. Close enough.
You’re gonna have to go out there and represent for Yonkers Earl. Plus, you’ve got Black America on your back, so failure is not an option.
The Hot 97 Morning Show hosts don’t think this fight should happen. They are of the opinion that Zimmerman shouldn’t be indulged and treated like a celebrity when he’s nothing more than a cowardly murderer. They make some great points, but I think they’re in denial about one important fact: George Zimmerman is already a celebrity. He’s a celebrity amongst right-wing racist lunatics to whom he represents everything that is white and right in America.
This fight shouldn’t happen, but it’s very likely that it will, because this is how shit gets settled in this country. I’m of the opinion that if it’s going to happen, it might as well be X in that ring with him. I tried to ignore the initial reports about the match because I didn’t want to give that piece of shit any more attention than he was already getting. But now a Rapper is involved, and here we are. So fuck it, I’m gonna root for him rather than call him a “raging crackhead” and assume that he has no chance of winning. Regardless of who Zimmerman fights, there’s the chance he could win and end up being glorified. It’s a sad and fucked up situation all around, but I’d be lying to you if I said I didn’t want to see Zimmerman get his face bashed in.
UPDATE: X says that while he has agreed to fight Zimmerman, he’s still negotiating the purse. I don’t know, maybe we do need to call this whole thing off. It’s not supposed to be about the money X.
