So George Zimmerman is to fight rapper DMX and america is loving it.  To me this is just wrong and disrespectfull and goes to show you what americans think is entertainment.  Glorifiying a killer and giving him hero status.  This is making a mokery of black people.  I want to know your opinions on this subject.  Call and let me hear your take on this.

George Zimmerman

It's all over the US press. Basically, this 16 year old black kid, Treyvon Martin, is shot and killed by a community watch member, George Zimmerman. The cops let him go claiming no case at first and after a huge uproar they arrested him and goes to trial.

What happened is unclear. They definitely fought, but it's unclear who started and whether one or the other was jumped from behind.

Treyvon was on the phone right beforehand and the girl on the other end claimed that he mentioned someone stalking him (and later fell apart on the witness stand). Zimmerman called the cops when he saw Treyvon walking around claiming he looked suspicious and was going to investigate.

In my opinion neither are completely innocent and neither is guilty. A fight started, Zimmerman panicked and shot Treyvon.
