Time NOW TO COME TO MICHAEL VICK’S Defense Falcons FALCON DOWN !

Time for the Box

to switch sides

staying ahead

of the rest of

the Media as

Usual

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

AFRICAN Americans

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

AFRICAN American

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 …

GUARANTEED

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

BANISHED from

NFL Football

FOREVER

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

SILENCE instead

from AFRICAN

Americans in the NFL

and far Beyond

Justice is for

Michael Vick

to do his time

the come

BACK

and play

NFL Football
