Default NAACP official: Vick shouldn't be banned from NFL

http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/law/08/22/vick/index.html

Why are these guys involved, especially when there is no issue of race in this case? This is an issue for PETA not the NAACP.

They just made themselves look like morons. Vick should be suspended and I will not watch a game in which he plays.

Quote from article:
"White also said he didn't understand the uproar over dogfighting, when hunting deer and other animals is perfectly acceptable."

In that case, I have no problem with them killing the dogs as long as they eat them. That's a rule that 99% of the "hunters" abide by.

The same guy came out and made a similar statement a few weeks ago. Just another Vick fanboy trying to use his position as head of the Atlanta Chapter to inject race into the issue.

The national body of the NAACP still hasn't gotten involved to my knowledge.

Default Re: NAACP official: Vick shouldn't be banned from NFL

Each time the NAACP steps up into something like this Martin Luther King roles over in his grave. With as many things that happen in this country that they should be speaking out on they have to open their mouth and insert thy foot on this kind of crap.

Now that is just being out of touch with reality.

By the way if Mr White was caught dogfighting I wonder if he would keep his job.

You know, I honestly believe that if Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr knew what was happening with his organization he would roll over in his grave. There is still discrimination in this country that the NAACP should be looking at and working towards fixing. This is just an example of a person trying to create a name for himself, and he should be ashamed of his actions.

White is an *****.... I love this gem:

Quote:
"We feel that whatever the courts demand as a punishment for what he has done, once he has paid his debt to society, then he should be treated like any other person in the NFL," White said.
It should have read like this you moron:

Quote:
"We feel that whatever the courts demand as a punishment for what he has done, once he has paid his debt to society, then he should be treated like any other person in the NFL that has pleaded guilty to a dog fighting felony which also included gambling," White said.
Duh...... I think thats what Roger Goddell is considering right now.

Default Re: NAACP official: Vick shouldn't be banned from NFL

This guy is a laughingstock. I was just reading about it on ESPN and these things floored me.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2986382

Excuse #1 and Letting a Guy Off the Hook:

Quote:
White said the Atlanta chapter supports Vick's decision to accept a plea bargain if it's in his best interest, but he questioned the credibility of Vick's co-defendants, saying an admission of guilt might be more about cutting losses than the truth.


"At this point, you're not looking at guilt or innocence," White said, referring to the possible harsher sentence Vick could have received had he taken his case to trial and been found guilty. "You're thinking, 'What I better do is cut my losses and take a plea.' But if he saw this as the best thing to do at this point for his future, then I think he made the correct choice."
And #2

Quote:
"His crime is, it was a dog," White said.
Whatever moron

Ok...This is D-u-m-b....

Vick SHOULD be banned from the NFL...

The fool committed a freaking felony...

No one else can commit a felony and expect to go back to their corporate job, or any kind of job for that matter....

Vick needs to find work where he can. The NFL doesn't have to do a damn thing.

Default Re: NAACP official: Vick shouldn't be banned from NFL

The NFL should ban this guy just to save some face with the image of the league. Just imagine the circus that is going to be in every visiting city that Vick plays in. There will probably be a protest in every city, outrageous signs everywhere, fans booing everytime he touches the ball, etc.

True, he didn't go OJ and kill humans, however he murdered innocent dogs and that tends to pull at people's emotions. Whether it's right or wrong, in movies people tend to get more emotional when animals die more than when people do.

Default Re: NAACP official: Vick shouldn't be banned from NFL

I am sorry but ever since I saw the NAACP get upset over a hispanic female get named as head of the Dallas Indipendent school district, I have no respect for the organization.

It is a money making enterprise and that is it.

Default Re: NAACP official: Vick shouldn't be banned from NFL

To me is it simply amazing how uneducated and ignorant some sectors of the community are. When these Einsteins equate hunting to dog fighting and actually have a straight face, it tells me how out of touch with humanity they are, and how low their character is to condone such a disgusting practice. Sure, that hamburger you ate today didn't die of old age...but it wasn't tortured and forced to fight for the right to live for the amusement of a bunch of shallow idiots.

Word.

When hunters start catching deer and making them fight to the death in a brutal blood sport, then I'll feel the same way about hunters (which technically would not make them "hunters" anymore).

Hunters perform the same actions that a butcher performs. One shot kills are what they strive for, and it is not about enjoying the brutality of animals viscously killing each other for sport.

The only people that I will grant any respect for this comparison are true vegans (no part of their life has anything remotely connected to using animals). I might still find them to be a bit whacko, but I'd respect their dedication to living the mentality.

Everyone else that compares dog fighting to deer hunting are just stupid, though.

Hunters are well regulated and licensed. There are permits, safety courses, background checks, bag limits, game wardens...i could go on and on. Hunters and fishermen are responsible people. I am a hunter. We don't shoot the deer in its hoof to watch it limp around for a little bit for our own amusement. One shot kills are the credo. No pain, no realization, just food. I feel sorry for fish, what with the whole hook/asyphiaxtion thingy, but what can you do
