Cleveland-born boxer, 2012 USA Olympian Terrell Gausha (pictured), who used to proudly don the American flag on his boxing shorts when he fought in the ring, now says that because of George Zimmerman‘s not-guilty verdict, he will no longer rep the United State’s flag, according to TMZ.

In his interview with the gossip website, the middleweight keenly observed the discrepancy between how punishment is meted out in this country, “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, who is 25 years old, added that the Zimmerman verdict changed the way he sees this country, “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.”

While Gausha will reportedly not be eligible for the 2016 Olympic team because he went pro, he made it clear that he wasn’t interested in repping a “nation with so much racism and hatred.”

Gausha isn’t the only one to speak out about the injustice of the not-guilty Zimmerman verdict. Actor Lance Gross wrote an open letter to Zimmerman, stating:

People will cross the street when they see you coming. They will call you hurtful names. It will drive you so insane some days that you’ll want to scream at the top of  your lungs. But you will have to wake up the next day, put on [sic] firm look and push through life.

I bet you never thought by shooting a Black male, you’d end up inheriting all of his struggles.

Enjoy your ‘freedom.’

Singing-legend Stevie Wonder told his audience that he will no longer be performing in Florida until the Stand Your Ground Laws are abolished in the ever-dubious Sunshine State.

And the Rev. Al Sharpton also agrees that the Zimmerman verdict is a “slap in the face,” declaring,

“The acquittal of George Zimmerman is a slap in the face to the American people but it is only the first round in the pursuit of justice. We intend to ask the Department of Justice to move forward as they did in the Rodney King case and we will closely monitor the civil case against Mr. Zimmerman. I will convene an emergency call with preachers tonight to discuss next steps. And intend to head to Florida in the next few days.”

On Sunday, President Barack Obama said in a statement that while this is “a nation of laws [and] a jury has spoken, “the death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy.”

The Department of Justice is still considering whether to pursue a civil rights case against Zimmerman in wake of the verdict.
