Well, it is official, George Zimmerman is scheduled for a celebrity boxing match between himself and rapper DMX in March.

Ironically, this news is released the same day as Trayvon Martin's 19th birthday. It has caused yet another outrage among people across the globe saying " Zimmerman is getting famous off of the murder of an innocent black child."

Twitter users were outraged that the announcement came on the slain Trayvon Martians birthday, and most are convinced it was planned. A petition to the White House is circulating to stop the match with with 11,604 supporters signing it thus far.

Trayvon's birthday also spotlights another jury selection on a case being built on Florida's "stand your ground" self-defense law.

Michael Dunn, 47,has been charged with a first-degree murder case in the shooting of an also unarmed 17-year-old boy, Jordan Davis, in an argument about loud music that took place back in November of 2012.

One source who asked to remain unnamed says they are "sick of seeing this law used as the white man's get out of jail free card."

Dunn stated "he was in fear for his life" as being the reason for firing into the SUV that Jordan Davis was riding in.

Sound familiar?

Zimmerman also shot an unarmed black teen in "fear for his life," or so he stated. The events that have unfolded since concerning guns, domestic violence and fearful neighbors show an entirely different character than the one he presented himself to be on the stand.

Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon, has been a pillar of strength and dignity throughout the entire ordeal. She is pushing for changes to the stand your ground laws. Fulton stated, "We need to do something about this law when our kids cannot feel safe in their own community."

Early this morning Sybrina Fulton posted the image on Twitter that is now circulating over all of the major social media channels with Trayvon's face placed on an American flag stating the words "Happy 19th Birthday Trayvon." Other birthday wishes have been sent out via #NeverForget and #HoodiesUp.

Supporters of the grieving mother remains strong in all communities.
