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.

This is what I been trying to get at.. At this point its pointless. Hell Serial Killers dont even get this much attention from bloggers.

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!

Thanks once again... We have arrived and yet it still isnt good enough..

Double standards. We can got to war on false info, we can have hunting, we can ruin the American economy but OMG if a football player has some dog fights, he deserves HELL!

I wish he played here still. He grew as a man and a player and is better for it.

Atlanta will never win championships as the owners here don't want superstars, they want "good ole boys".

I'm sick of everybody putting ALL these athletes on a pedestal as if they do anything more than entertain us. Vick is only out there for himself and you can tell. However, most athletes are the same way nowadays anyway, black, white, whatever. I say we knock all these prima donnas' salaries down a few million to what they should be paid and stop treating them like they are any different than anyone else who works for a living. You idiots that pay premium bucks to see these immature brats beat the crap out of each other are enablers.

That's what gripes me the most about this entire situation. Most people will never make millions of dollars and be practically worshiped and admired by millions of people. Someone should teach these overgrown entitled children to be thankful for their gifts and the benefits they bring and get it through their thick skulls that they are role models for kids whether they want to be or not.

Couldn't agree more. Time to start taking your lumps like everybody else instead of complaining that people are saying mean things about your man because he abused animals for fun and got in trouble for it. Do you hear Vick himself moaning about it? Seems to me he's handling it just fine.

If only people in this country love Iraqi & Afghan children the same way that they love dogs(they should love the kids a whole heck of lot more than that but the last 9 years since 2001 shows otherwise). Guess that will never happen.

So unless there is no injustice in the whole world then people have no right to complain about what Vick did?

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.
Relax, take a deep breath....its going to be ok.
