Black Law Student Discussion Board / Re: Micheal Vick: Is it just me?
« on: July 27, 2007, 09:30:27 AM »
If he killed another black male, i bet this wouldnt get this much media attention

Dogs are really sweet though... :D


The federal government should be less concerned with Michael Vick and more concerned with cracking down on the meat industry, where their cruel and disgusting practices affect the majority of us on a daily basis, healthwise and morality-wise.

This whole Vick controversy is a little overdone. I guess he would have been better off slaughtering farm animals, as he probably wouldn't have been in this predicament.
I see your point, but still don't agree. First of all, one wrong doesn't justify another. We shouldn't start ignoring something 'because there's something worse going on somewhere else'.

Secondly, comparing it to farm animals is ridiculous. Yes, there's a lot of tasteless things going on there too that should be dealt with, but at the end of the day the farm business serves a greater purpose; to feed us. Let's not make thing s vegan campaign now. Vick's, and his fellows, are torturing and killing animals simply for some twisted pleasure out of doing so. It's not at all comparable to something that is actually food production.


Naw, dont ignore it. But pay just as much attention to the other things going on in this world which happen to be worse, just as much as you would this matter

Thank you Sparkz.

Some folks need to brush up on their reading comprehension skills. ::)

First of all, I didn't say ignore Michael Vick.

Secondly, the meat industry's methods of killing animals mirror those of the media's description of the way Mike is killing those dogs, and that is why I made the federal govt statement.

Finally, yes, the meat industry feeds many people, but that is no excuse for the horrific manner in which they choose to go about it. There is a humane way to raise these animals and prepare them for slaughter, it's in the Bible. The meat industry also tortures animals, but because they do it for production purposes, that makes it ok?  ??? WTF ever.

actually i didn't defend.. i posted because i was bored..which is typically what happens when i go on those tangents...

i'm new here but i'll start off something controversial then said person opts not to come back.. total waste of time.. and i certainly wasted enough time going back and forth with that dolla bill cat last month..

i'm black as coal but i like up light no matter what race any way you slice that cali.. one cannot look @ that statement as cool that's his preference... folks typically don't refer to themselves as "coal" in a serious manner..hell not even as a joke so yes I shook my head.. and i don't see why that's a problem...

and Sparkz asked dude about his opinion and he elaborated... i spoke on it and even he admitted that he could somewhat see how it's problematic...

and the topic really isn't hot.. we deviated from the original point long ago..



Heck, I don't even know/remember what the original point was/is. :P

I see where the assumption could be made about the black as coal comment, but there were other dudes who voiced the same pref.

No problem about the head shaking, like I said, that seemed to take place before people bothered to get some insight...

Anyway, I'm outta here...off to watch MTB 4, I missed Monday's episode, lol! :)
