One of the most powerful ways blacks could demonstrate they've arrived in the mainstream is to abandon the claims of victimization and the knee jerk defense of blacks who've clearly done bad things. Criticism goes with the territory of being powerful and living in the public eye. Vick himself obviously understands this -- he's not the one moaning about how unfair it all is.

How can we when it is still going on?

I never said they didnt. Blacks too this day still have to prove themselves in Mainstream media and then when they get there its still not good enough.

Im a dir hard fan of My team, I respect Falcons fans, never had a real interest in The Eagle or Mike Vick before he got in trouble, Im more of a Peyton Manning type of fan, BUT this thread makes me love both Mike Vick & The Philadelphia Eagles man I hope if my team doesnt get to the SB the eagles do. It will be the highest rated event ever! Go EAGLES!

Like I said using freedom of speech is NOT always a wise choice. Blacks get offended when high profile blacks are over criticized by white. Im giving you behind the scene KNOWLEGDE of why blacks take up for Mike Vick. Suit yourself, so things are better left unsaid. Thats discernment.

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.
Stop quoting me dude.

Well said--and needed.
My question is why are white people so angry? Why so hateful? Why the negative passion for this man that had a VERY STUPID hobby. Ive seen white dudes, black dudes and many Puerto ricans fight pit bulls...never seen any killed after the fact...it was more of "My dawg is tougher/better than your dawg Lets bet money to prove it" The dogs fight, the winner dog gets the respect & payment the loser dog gets nursed or sold or traded. Vick was doing some EXTRA SHIZNIT...way out there. When I first heard the news I said damn "Vick is an idiot" All my homeboys (educated brothas) said the exact same phrases the dude was stupid & we were embarassed. Then the white commentators started ripping.... & ripping..... & ripping & Ripping...after a while Im like damn...why they going so hard on Vick? When they gonna ****? These critics are never really concerned with the history or upbringing of said person, but they dont go as hard on white mistakes as they do Vick. Its painfully obvious, even on this thread. You look at white guy in his face & tell him "hey it hurts me/us when you say these things about someone we connent with to ANY degree" Either ther respect the request or they keep on pushing. Once they kept pushing we push back & that the basis of this forum. Let it go & we will, keep ripping & we'll keep defending. Seriously we are going in circles yall.

What!? Man thats a bunch of BS....mainstream? We arrived? Man we dont need to by certified by society, get the heII outta here! The President is black, do you not here how disrespected he gets on a daily basis?? What are your ears & eyes closed? Spare us/me with this blacks need to prove they arrived crap! Blacks need to repair our families, repair our love for one another(men & women) & think outside of the box sometimes, BUT this whole foolishness about Black arriving put that mess back in your pocket & come again. We been arrived in this country!

Stalking? Harassment? You have GOT to be kidding me with this garbage.

Yeah, I sent you a message - because I didn't want to repeat what I had already stated here previously. But since you are forcing the issue, I will.

AGAIN, this is an open, public discussion forum. If you post here, you should fully expect to be quoted. What part of this concept do you not understand?

And again, you don't dictate to other members what they can and can not do.
