NAACP Backs Michael Vick

The Atlanta chapter of the organization that spits in the face or Martin Luther King, Jr. and his ideals on a daily basis, has called for the NFL to be lenient with dog-killer Michael Vick. The reason: “Vick’s ability to bring joy to football fans across the country”.

(
ABC News) An NAACP leader said Michael Vick should be allowed to return to the NFL, preferably the Atlanta Falcons, after serving his sentence for his role in a dogfighting operation.

"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 group'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."

I guess I can say that I’m not surprised. Besides, it’s all the white man’s fault anyway. Years of caring for dogs by white suburbanites isolated and alienated the black culture; creating a harsh resentment among the black community towards animals.
