post racial, maybe

Ok, twenty second time out. I was prepared to talk about some more stuff, albeit I was trying to stay away from the economy, the health care debate and idiot savants screaming socialism whom don’t know what socialism is. But I digress.

I really do not care about Mike Vick, him fighting dogs, or getting herpes from a stripper from magic city. But I would like to say something about the holier than though folk who just spur venom and vitriol at the man. My problem is that these folk talk about dogs as if they are equal to humans and as if the are voting tax payers. Folk I might add who are more likely to pick a dog up in the street than a fellow human being who may be homeless – especially if the are descendents of Africa.

Not to mention these the same mutha fucas who be saying they Christians and calling on Gods name except when it comes to an African American man, former pro football player who happened to fight dogs. Seems they loose their religification then. Moreover, move to the argument that he is a criminal and even if he paid his debt to society via prison, they still don’t accept the rules they made. They say that it was two years ago and that it is difficult to believe him. Yet the same standards stand for racist – that they were raised to be such but yet they don’t see the similarity nor speak out against it.

I don’t know what it is about some people, who benefited off of slavery, laws in which I or my ancestors had no part in creating; selectively establishing the benefits of liberty as ordained from the constitution. I was told that this was a post racial America since Obama was elected – maybe it is but post racism – not.

Vick has done his time. He paid a very high price for what he did.

Man, I feel you. White folks love flipping the script. In fact, they recently did so in another manner.

That was so on point. I totally agree.

Obama's election can't change the minds of the ignorant, overnight. Folk need to understand that what isn't said is more of an issue than what is. How people think is what should concern folk.

Not to bring color into the issue, but pet lovers are usually known for putting their pets before humans -- even their own families.

I happen to believe on a spiritual plane, all living things are equal, and as humans we are no more superior to dogs than dogs are to cats. On a REAL level and on the physical plane, what mike vick had to go through was some bullshit quite frankly. But it just goes to confirm that most white folk are more concerned about dogs than black men and women.

We heard a while back an 'interviewee', being nice, say that Vick wasn't remorseful. Hubby exclaimed "Remorseful! He lost millions (contract) over a few thousand dollars. Who wouldn't be remorseful?"

Am I the only one who thought Vick was none of my DAMNED business?
