When the news came out that George Zimmerman was accepting challengers to fight him in a "celebrity" boxing match, DMX steped up and agreed to the challenge (there were 15,000 applicants, by the way). While many were happy at the potential of seeing Zimmerman beat up, others had a more humanitarian approach, claiming that we should not as a society allow profit from racial tension and from the death of Trayvon Martin. Janet Dickerson has started a petition against the fight which now has 40,000 signatures.

I don't think I was looking at it as "profiting from racial tension" initially, but I am now. That's exactly what this is. Personally, I'm against the fight now that I've seen this other angle.
How about you? What do you think?
