...and you’re a fine sportsman practicing your second amendment rights. Bull fight, you’re crazy but a brave entertainer. Dog fight, lose a multi-million dollar career and go to jail for up to 20 years. Why is it so evil to use a dog in one's twisted sense of entertainment but its okay to blow the brains out of a helpless deer with a high powered rifle? as an FYI: I'm not into either sport but I am questioning the possiblity of a double standard. http://www.waok.com/ is the website of a talk radio station in Atlanta, Michael Vick's city. The format is African American talk radio. I was listening last week and the comments were very interesting. Nearly 100% of the calls I heard generally accused the prosecution and the culture in general of a subconscious racism. Paraphrasing: "...only a few months ago police stormed into an elderly Black woman's house and shot her dead. Why weren't there thousands of white people with signs demonstrating in front of the courthouse demanding justice when SHE was slaughtered? The unanswered question that the Michael Vick case has brought to America is this, what's more valuable: the life of a Black woman of the life of a dog?" (ATLANTA (AP) — A police official said narcotics officers were justified in returning fire on a 92-year-old woman they shot to death after she shot them as they tried to serve a warrant at her house. Neighbors and relatives said it was a case of mistaken identity. But police said the woman, identified as Kathryn Johnston, was the only resident in the house at the time and had lived there for about 17 years.) http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2006-11-22-elderly-shootout_x.htm "...So its okay for Bubba to go hunting and kill animals but Michael Vick does the same blank thing they want to lynch him. What's the difference? Michael Vick is Black, that's the difference!" "...This is the first time in American history any person has faced animal cruelty charges under federal law. Are we supposed to believe Michael Vick invented dog fighting in America? " If you want to listen the best time 8am to 12noon eastern time Monday - Friday. I think you might need to register in order to listen. I'm not saying I agree that this is a racially charged witch-hunt but I do find these views very interesting and think its enlightening to hear the heart-felt perspectives of people with these views.
