We are in a society now were many things are offensive, but people say & do these thing anyway for a reaction...

& by the way I just recieved 7 count em SEVEN + 1s to my account so there are others that agree. Hey man Im black, I HATE when blacks mess up, hate when we kill our own kind, Hate when our women get pregnant by unworthy men. I told you the trust of the matter whether you respect it or not is your business but again. Thats how a large group of people feel.
Peace.
The reason blacks dont condemn Rothelsburger is because plenty of whites are already on his case. (now of course if the chick had been black, Jesse and Al would have been all over it).

Yet when a black man does something illicit the majority of the black voices are vociferous - in their SUPPORT of the crime-doer. Even when the victim is white (OJs ex, girls at UNC and Auburn, etc). That is why you hear lots of white voices -- because blacks wont criticize their own kind, almost no matter what (see Marion Barry). Meanwhile whites abhor the white criminals in their midst - whether Bill Clinton or otherwise.

When I saw Mike Vick playing that one unbelieveable game, I really got a high from it... It goes to show you, even if you make horrible decisions you can still turn your life around, no matter who you are.

Excuse me?

The type of honest and open racial discussion that happens regularly in Atlanta almost NEVER takes place in most large metro's in the U.S., most especially in your "go-to" mega-city of metro Chicago. Chicago, the Midwest AND Northeast in particular, are absolutely terrifed to even discuss this issue, let alone bring it up on a daily basis.

We live with - and deal with it, every single day. Get a clue before you cast such negative, completley ignorant and misinformed views of something you know nothing of.

Get back to us when you actually integrate your suburbs, elect blacks/hispanics/asians/gays to office AND get comfortable living amongst people that don't look like your parents.

That yahoo apparently speaks for the entire black race. He has quite the superiority complex going.

How the H#LL does performing on a football field equate to turning your life around. He was a very good football player before the dogfighting conviction and SURPRISE, SURPRISE he is still a good football player afterwards. His on the field exploits have NOTHING to do with turning his life around! He can throw a football and run really fast so he has turned his life around?? I guess since he hasnt been arrested or put back in prison that is some sort of moral victory.

I was a lifelong Eagles fan...stayed a fan through many losing seasons. Losing I can handle, but Vick is a dealbreaker for me. The Eagles are done in my book, as is the NFL for that matter. I'll stick to college football.

At least the Falcons had the decency to cut ties with the puppy killing, herpes-spreading, drug using, middle-finger waving scumbag.

Funny that so many on here discount what he DID before the dog fighting conviction. Flipping off the fans at the GA Dome. Giving some women herpes and getting sued for it. Having multiple illegitimate children with more than one women. Being photographed smoking a blunt and then taking some substance through security in the airport in a hidden compartment of a water bottle. Yep that Ron Mexico was a really good guy before getting convicted for dog fighting.
