Après Stevie Wonder, qui a décidé de ne plus se produire en Floride, le boxeur Terrell Gausha…

Après Stevie Wonder, qui a décidé de ne plus se produire en Floride, le boxeur Terrell Gausha refuse de représenter les Etats-Unis aux JO pour protester contre l’acquittement de George Zimmerman :

« Trayvon Martin Verdict — I’m Ashamed to Wear U.S. Flag ... Says Olympic Boxer »

U.S. Olympic boxer Terrell Gausha is so disgusted over the George Zimmerman verdict ... he’s vowing to never sport the red, white and blue again.

Gausha — who boxed in the 2012 London Summer Games — started wearing the American flag on his boxing trunks after his Olympic run ... but tells TMZ he’s done with that now in the wake of Zimmerman’s acquittal in the killing of Trayvon Martin.

Terrell adds, “How can I wear my stars and stripes proudly in a country where they make a big deal out of Mike Vick fighting dogs; but not a young innocent black male’s life.”

Gausha added, “When I represented my country in the Olympics I was proud to wear my flag. I even wore it on my head on the way to the ring. What happened this weekend was a slap in the face.”

Zimmerman acquittal : Blame Florida for Trayvon Martin's death. - Slate Magazine

Zimmerman acquittal : Blame Florida for Trayvon Martin’s death. - Slate Magazine

Here’s the problem: To convict Zimmerman of murder, the six women of the jury had to find that he killed Martin out of ill will, hatred, or spite, or with a depraved mind. The law didn’t account Zimmerman’s fear or feeling of being physically threatened.

George Zimmerman acquitté

« Trayvon Martin avait un profil. Il n’y a pas de doute sur le fait qu’il avait le profil pour devenir un délinquant. Même si le racisme était l’une des composantes dans l’esprit de George Zimmerman », a-t-elle dit. « Mais le droit de porter des armes est un droit dans lequel nous croyons tous ».
