Okay! I have basically had it up to here with white people. Once again, they want to change the rules as to the way things work. O.J. Simpson got acquitted of murder and the predominately black jury was criticized as being stupid and uniformed. George W. Bush and Dick Cheney invaded Iraq, perhaps killing millions of innocent civilians. Yet, they walk around as free men. Idiots to most, heroes to some. They still need to be brought to justice for their crimes against humanity. Sarah Palin shoots wolves from helicopters and thinks that polar bears are the new niggers of Alaska but where is the outrage? I am mad as hell right now and white people and PETA can suck my meat eating dick!
I want to be perfectly clear here! What Michael Vick did was wrong and vile. But he paid his debt to society and thus, should be offered all of the rights and privileges of a free man. Yesterday, Vick signed a two year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles and white folks and PETA have lost their fucking minds (not for the first time). Here is PETA’s statement concerning the signing of Michael Vick:
PETA and millions of decent football fans around the world are disappointed that the Philadelphia Eagles have chosen to sign a man who hanged dogs from trees, electrocuted them with jumper cables, held them underwater until they drowned in his swimming pool, and even threw his own family dogs into the fighting pit to be torn to shreds while he laughed. What sort of message does this send to young fans who care about animals and don’t want to see them be harmed?
PETA certainly hopes that Vick has learned his lesson and feels truly remorseful for his crimes—but since he’s given no public indication that that’s the case, only time will tell. At this point, all Eagles fans can do is cross their fingers and hope that they won’t ever have to explain to their sons and daughters what a “rape rack” is and why their favorite player was using one, as Falcons fans once had to.
Please pay particular attention to the language in the PETA statement! How in the hell can Peta speak for the millions of “decent” football fans across the country? Does that make those of us who want to see the American dream realized indecent? Keep in mind that a few weeks ago, PETA was calling for Michael Vick to undergo a brain scan to see if he was truly remorseful. That’s akin to giving George W. Bush a brain scan to search for intelligence. The very concept in and of itself is ridiculous. I have nothing against advocacy groups but PETA would rather you be eaten alive by mosquitoes than have a truck come by and spray their blood sucking asses back to the swamp.
My point is this! In America, we live by a systems of laws. If you break the law, you suffer the consequences! Michael Vick suffered the consequences by spending nearly two years in a federal penitentiary. Most convicted felons on average, will never command a six figure salary upon their release. Should Vick be penalized because he can run fast and throw a ball? I don’t think so! Two time Super Bowl champ Ben Roethlisberger is accused of raping a woman and I don’t hear anybody calling for him to be banned from playing football or being forced to undergo a brain scan! Could it be that because he is a white man and his victim was not a dog that nobody gives a damn?
Post Script: I normally do not approve of using the “N” word but thought that it was appropriate for emphasis for this comment.
