Mike Tyson on Trayvon Martin

Mike Tyson at the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen in 2011

Mike Tyson is certainly not the sharpest knife in the drawer. He has a big mouth and does not think before he speaks. Miracle of miracles, he has his own show in Vegas.

He also recently had the opportunity to weigh in on the George Zimmerman affair:

As a black kid who grew up in Brooklyn, who was beat up, and then moved to the Catskills, and has had to deal with racial issues, what are your thoughts about the Trayvon Martin case?

My personal feeling is that, as a young kid that was beat on by a bully, the guy [Zimmerman] stalked him and didn’t follow instructions from a superior officer. But my all-around perspective, I wasn’t there. I don’t know what happened. Even though this is the best country in the world, certain laws in this country are a disgrace to a nation of savages. It’s a majority versus a minority. That’s the way God planned it. He didn’t want to do something about it, He wanted us to do something about it. We have to continue tweeting, we have to continue marching, we have to continue fighting for Trayvon Martin. If that’s not the case, he was killed in vain, and we’re just waiting for it to happen to our children. It’s a disgrace that man hasn’t been dragged out of his house and tied to a car and taken away. Forget about him being arrested—the fact that he hasn’t been shot yet is a disgrace. That’s how I feel personally about it. [Laughs]

What are you saying, Mike? You call Americans savages and then wonder why no one has shot George Zimmerman? Who is the savage? Or am I misunderstanding something?

  1. Tyson’s attitude is the same as those who said, “It is a disgrace we have not strung that black boy up yet”. Tyson should go bite an ear.

  2. If Tyson has had his voting rights restored, I might just have to go cry.

    What a maroon. What an im-bessel.

  3. Hey Mike, as a teenaged strong-arm robber, beater of women and a convicted rapist, what do you think of citizens carrying concealed handguns?


  4. He’s wrong on so many levels, it’s hardly worth the time and effort to go into it…I find a Justice Department that allows vigilanteism of a racist anti-Semitic group reason enough to go out a purchase a weapon…but that’ just me..k
