    Re: George Zimmerman agrees to celebrity boxing match

    Advertisers would pay the fare to have this on tv as it would attract viewers like a car wreck along the freeway does.

    But who it their right mind would pay their own hard earn money watch a couple celebs dance in the ring??

    Again, I have to add... It's really ****ing amazing how much you assume. Are you ever right about anything?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    You didn't answer his questions and went into the same rant. Why are you calling the guys racist? They aren't MLK, but that has nothing to do with providing rational explanation as to why you have the called the guys racist throughout this thread.

    You have no addressed anything. The only thing you address is accusations that I'm a racist and dodging the topic. It is a pretty sad state of affairs but you know, to each his own. In your mind, I'm sure you're making sense.

    This is vigilantiism. It's not on the same scale as say, what the black panthers want to do by putting a bounty on zimmermans' head, but it's the same principle -> hurt someone because of racially motivated reasons. And that, is racism.

    Zimmerman is not a vigilante. He is innocent, a court said so and there are no grounds for appeal. So whether you agree with the verdict or not, it doesn't matter, the verdict is there and it is the reality of things. I know you'd rather see him as a man who "got away from justice" but I don't see it that way. He is a man which justice has not let slip, but has protected his rights and civil liberties. He is innocent but still, some racists, wanna beat the snot out of him because, again, racism (one of THEM attacked one of OURS)

    That would require that you have a point to make, and you never do.

    I did and I repeated myself at least half a dozen times.
    They're racists and they are vigilantes because they wanna do vigilantiism for racial motives. They have a racial motivation "to fight for all blacks who've been wronged by the system" by taking it out on zimmerman and they'll fight for "trayvon martins' legacy". race, race, race. vigilantiism, vigilantism, vigilatism. How many times must I repeat myself.

    They're not interested in charity and the charity side of the event. They're interested in payback and they see this event as an opportunity to go "hunting" for the "oppressor". Even though it's stupid because as I said, zimmerman hadn't freed himself. He got cleared by a tribunal, but racists can't grasp that concept because it's not about the facts, but about the feels.

    I do not believe their desire to beat him up rises to the occasion of taking the law into their own hands. Payback yes, vigilantism I am not so sure about.

    As far as them being racist? In the context of this issue alone I don't see it. They aren't after Zimmerman because of his race. They aren't taking action based upon Trayvon's race, Zimmermans race, or anyone's race. I think they want to beat him up because they think he is a murderer who got away with his crime because they believe the system failed.

    Basically I don't see their desire to beat Zimmerman up as an issue of race, more an issue of retribution.

    ehh, that's probably highly debatable, since most people seem to have reduced the issue to one of race. And it's not like DMX or the Game are the type of intellectuals who would see the issue as something beyond the confines of the easily accessible narratives we see on tv and the internet

    Oh I understand that, I do. I just don't want to go there by assuming to know their unspoken motivations. If I stick to what they are actually verbalizing are their motivations I don't fall into that trap.

    Regardless I would still like to see one of them knock Zimmerman out because I think he is a douche nozzle deserving of a good beating.
