Time Now To Come To Michael Vick’s Defense
NOW TO COME TO MICHAEL VICK’S FALCON DOWN !
Time for the Box
to switch sides
of the rest of
the Media as
In this case regarding Michael Vick. We were first calling this matter and doing it more insightfully than the so called Big Boys (emphasis on BOYS in the Media). Now that Michael Vick has finally admitted Guilt just about everyone beginning with the The Great New York Times is ready to BANISH Michael Vick from NFL Football FOREVER and ever.
The kind of typical
VICIOUS piling on
we expect in the Media
especially when it involves
The very idea sprouting up just about everywhere is that yes even after 1) Vick pleads guilty, 2) spends time in prison, 3) pays a big fine, 4) apologizes profusely, and 4) is humiliated for life – that NO that is NOT enough next let’s completely DESTROY Vick’s life..
IT’S THE WHITE BOYS GOING INTO ACTION THE WAY THEY ALWAYS DO. ALWAYS HAVE.
Let’s SAVAGE this
take out our hidden
RACISM on Vick
As bad as violence against animals is and as much as Vick must face the Consequences to equate what he is Guilty of with the most heinous crimes imaginable is nonsense and unmasks the bias ……
………. in so much of American society. Given an opening to go after a Black Man (or woman) the more successful and famous the Better – given cover to get away with it the VICIOUSNESS of much of White America knows no bounds.
All those White Boys ( and far fewer girls )
that populate the Sports Media in America
and are “forced” to cover AFRICAN
Americans all over Football can now
FINALLY can let out their repressed
RACISM on Michael Vick
It can be described as GLEEFUL the way reporters like Judy Battista of The New York Times have reveled in writing or speaking their “belief” that Michael Vick will likely be BANISHED from the NFL forever.
MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT
were it Peyton Manning who had been
involving in illegal dog fighting
NOBODY would be discussing
BANNING him from the NFL
FOREVER and ever …
NO doubt IF Manning were involved in the same kind of activity Vick was he to would be prosecuted and face similar penalties ( even though many African Americans will disagree ) BUT THE DIFFERENCE IS.. ….
NOBODY would be calling for
Peyton Manning to be
Because Peyton Manning has the same skin COLOR as the people with ALL the Power and also the “more important” part of the fan base.
IT’S TIME FOR ALL GOOD PEOPLE BLACK AND WHITE to call the Bluff of the closet White Racists who literally want to Lynch Michael Vick. In 2007 that means NEVER allowing Vick to play in the NFL again.
The Truth is …..
While Vick did Wrong if EVERYONE associated with the NFL who ever did anything that is WRONG was BANISHED for Life from the NFL in fact 1) many of the owners, and 2) lots of the executives, and 3) many of these media types would have to be BANISHED from the NFL. For ever !
The Difference is …
NO matter how famous and rich and talented Michael Vick is he is BLACK which means he gets treated “separately and unequally” by the White Establishment.. We can only PRAY that the African American leadership in the NFL beginning with the likes of Tony Dungy and Lovie Smith – probably not Gene Upshaw – and including most of the prominent African Americans players tell …….
……….. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in NO uncertain terms don’t you dare think for a minute after Michael Vick has paid his debt to society that you can then BAN him from the NFL forever. That is unacceptable.
And IF you do
then NO Justice
means NO Peace
in the locker room
or on the Gridiron
let’s hope we don’t
hear the Sounds of
Americans in the NFL
and far Beyond
Justice is for
to do his time
