That's simply not true at all.

People have been prosecuted for dog fighting for many years before Michael Vick came along. In 2004, David Tant (a white guy) was sentenced to 40 years for running a dog fighting operation.

And people have been upset about it for a long time, especially as it began to occur more and more frequently in the late 1990s and early 2000s. From CNN: A database run by animal advocacy group Pet-abuse.com, which collects reports of animal abuse, shows reports of dogfighting cases increased from 16 in 2000 to 127 in 2006. The group has found 74 cases reported so far this year." That's before Vick got arrested.

Those who need to watch this video probably won't. One can hope.

And if I'm reading these posts properly, which I may not be after reading so much today, you get punished more harshly for lying to authorities while under investigation than for fighting, hanging, electrocuting, and drowning dogs? Really?!?!

Am I reading that right, seriously?!?!? Please correct me if I'm wrong. It has been demonstrated time after time that people who mistreat animals rarely stop there. I sincerely hope I am reading this wrong.
