I am going back and forth on my opinion on that - if I did not live in Atlanta I would have to assume you are joking and that nobody would seriously have your take on the recent rough patch in Senor Mexico's life. However, since I live in Atlanta I recognize it is possible you are serious.

Please share and discuss your motivation.

Mr. Socks doesn't seem to understand the situation. Michael Vick broke the law. He knew that dogfighting and running a gambling ring was illegal. He also lied to the feds, lied to the NFL commissioner, and lied to his fans. He is an adult, even though he may have grown up around it he should know the difference between right and wrong, and that when you break the law, you risk getting caught. He got caught and he has to live with the consequences of his actions. You say there is nothing wrong with what he did? Dogfighting is a form of animal cruelty. He killed dogs that didn't perform well in the fighting ring. I also heard that several beagles we're rescued from the house he owned, which are often used as bait animals to test a dog's fighting skill. If you don't feel there is something wrong with what he did, then you have some serious problems.

As for Vick supposedly being a target of racial profiling, thats B.S. Don't "blame society", Vick made the choice himself. Vick has no one to blame but himself. I know many successful, law-abiding black people who have never been a target of racial profiling. While I do agree that racism is still a problem, I don't agree with your whole "Vick was targeted because he is black and famous" argument. Do you have any proof that what your saying is true? Didn't think so. People like Michael Vick are part of the reason why stereotypes exist in the first place. He is a disgrace to black people.

A disgrace to black people? How dare you say that!!! Michael Vick has given back so much to his community. Michael came from nothing to become an NFL star. He is a true role model for children. Dogfighting is part of his culture. The dogs he killed failed to perform in the fighting ring. What was he supposed to do with them, turn them loose so they could maul people? Vick may have broken the law but as I said before being black and famous made him a target. That's why the feds are handling the case, and not the local police. It's not like he was killing people.

May have???

Last time I checked role models don't brutally kill man's best friend or are they convicted felons. Be it that they are black, white, or purple.

I'm sorry, but he is no role model. Unless you want your children to become murderers. And don't give me this "Dogfighting is part of his culture" bull. I was raised around ****fighting, and I know and believe it is wrong. I would never participate, even though it is part of my "culture". And about the "what was he suppose to do with them" comment...how about NOT RAISE THEM TO FIGHT AND KILL OTHER DOGS IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!
