NAACP To NFL Don’t Ban Vick
otherwise known as
that’s what the
White Sports Media
and their bosses of course
want for Michael Vick
a good old fashioned
Nobody is arguing with Michael Vick paying a penalty for his involvement with dogs. Going to jail and paying a fine and forever having a stigma attached to him. But what we are reading in the WHITE sports media is something very different. A :”license” in their mind to LYNCH Vick. Hound him out of football forever.
Force him to spend the rest of his life
in the shadows of society
NEVER again allowed
to do what he does well.
Well this story is NO longer about Michael Vick whether anyone else realizes it or not. As terrible as his and others treatment of those dogs RACISM in America normally carefully hidden has surfaced again.
You only need to read a BIGOT like Sally Jenkins a sports columnist for the Washington Post and her hateful commentary presented prominently on the front page of the Washington Post Website – to know why she is super-imposed on the graphic above above behind the “noose” meant for Michael Vick.
Read the ranting of this RACIST …
” There are those who say Vick should suffer the same tortures those dogs suffered, or at the least his sentence should resemble something in a scene from “Cool Hand Luke”: He should be fitted for manacles, and forced to break rocks with a shovel all day in the hot sun.”
( go read all her viciousness if you like )
But Sally Jenkins is simply one pathetic example of what is going on in the White Media looking to do to Vick what they are “unfortunately” (sic) not normally allowed to do to African Americans in print. This is way beyond Barry Bonds. Bonds can be criticized and dumped on. But with Bonds there are limits.
Bonds did not do enough to open the floodgates the way that Vick’s actions do. That’s right he was WRONG no excuses. Making dog’s fight often to the death and involved in killing other dogs or witnessing it.. Nothing to defend here. But then to equate what Vick did with a life sentence far far beyond what the law allows is just a much if not far more a “crime.” As many in the media would have.
THANK GOD FOR R.L. WHITE
and the ATLANTA NAACP
The President of the Atlanta NAACP Mr. White is speaking up forcefully for JUSTICE for Michael Vick. Let him do his time. Let him pay his debt.
THEN LET HIM PLAY FOOTBALL. Or as R.L. White put it .
“As a society, we should aid in his rehabilitation and welcome a new Michael Vick back into the community without a permanent loss of his career in football,” said R.L. White, president of the NAACP’s Atlanta chapter. “We further ask the NFL, Falcons, and the sponsors not to permanently ban Mr. Vick from his ability to bring hours of enjoyment to fans all over this country.”
Let’s hope Mr. White is the
first of many inside and beyond
the Black community to
speak out against this
We will return again and again to the subject here in the Box if we have to. So get ready for it.
YES Vick go to jail for a year or whatever your plea agreement is.
YES pay a big fine.
YES admit your guilt as you are.
YES never have the same kind of image you had before all this happened.
And at the same time once you have done your time. Paid for your crime. You have every right to be invited back into society. And for ANY individual that means being allowed to resume their profession. Every day we see WHITE collar criminals (always WHITE) who cause all kinds of grief for others who they bilk out of millions sometimes billions in al kinds of complex financial schemes.
Rarely do any of these CRIMINALS go to jail. Most of them get a slap on the wrist if even that and the Courts let them go on their merry way. Often to do more of the same.
WHEN DO WE SEE THIS KIND OF VENOM toward any of them in the media. We don’t. Because they are not a famous talented BLACK athlete.
Allow us to offer a wish to all
the WHITE media Vick bashers
that you commit some crime
do your time pay your fine
but regardless you are
NEVER EVER AGAIN
allowed to work as a journalist
anywhere for ever and ever
let’s place Sally Jenkins
FIRST on that Wish List
she’ll change her tune
when she’s the
