White Friend: You know, Ron... I've always come to understand dogfighting as a... well... I don't wanna say ghetto thing... Ron Mexico: No? Then say what you mean. WF: Well... You know, like the DMX video with the angry dogs... and how black guys walk around Harlem with the pitbulls. You know? RM: (not looking up from my beer) Mmm-hmmm. WF: Maybe you know better, but for Joe-Schmoe whitey from the suburbs, we think of "the hood" when we hear about dogfighting. RM: You watch too much TV news and don't know enough negroes. You also must not know any trailer trash either. They fight dogs for fun too. WF: Right.-- RM: And chickens and crank pipes and whatever else they can get their hands on to entertain themselves.I began to wonder about the public perception of dogfighting and the crucifixion Mexico 1.0 is going through. So... Peyton Manning and his retarded brother can use a dog to chomp a fox on the leg so they can shoot him in the ass and we (Amercians en masse) applaud. Vick and his homeboys fight dogs, and they're facing cocaine numbers. They're likely looking at 1-to-3s all around. If you can't see what I'm doing at home right now, I'm reaching into my black pocket for my race card... just to make sure it's still there. I would love to see a uniform standard applied to the cruelty of all animals. If we as a nation are to stress "respect for life" as an integral part of our moral fiber, then we need to collectively Dick-slap Vice President Cheney when he shoots a little ass bird (or one of his homies) with a fucking elephant gun. We need to have a talk with all these rich, country club motherfuckers with taxidermy of animals they had no intention of eating. We need to stop watching Flavor of Love and all spinoffs! Respect the ManBearPig! Mike Vick, you fucked up... but this is bigger than you, homie. Much like "The War on Drugs" the public assault on dogfighting is really nothing more than another war on poor, black people. We assorted coloreds once again catch a 15-yard penalty for our ignorance while Peyton Manning gets a trophy for shooting Bambi's mom in the face. Nice. The Golden Boy won't get a penny shaved off of one of his endorsement deals. P is still gonna be live-birthed from a football during the commercial breaks while Michael Vick gets to re-enact "The Longest Yard." What a country!

Michael Vick... Gone to the Dogs!
I thought it only appropriate on the day of his plea hearing to share my thoughts on the man and the situation he's found himself in. First and absolutely foremost, I believe dogfighting is a cruel, inhumane and ignorant form of "sport." However, for the first time in my life I agree with Stephon "12 dimes and 3 assists" Marbury. While he didn't initially express it the way he meant to, he alludes to the cultural phenomenon that finds dogfighting (punishable by 5 years in the cotton field) far more criminal than shooting Mama Moose in the uterus only to step over her and laugh. Michael Vick should probably have been sent to prison a long fucking time ago. Aside from being a general fuckhead and a shitty quarterback (a crime punishable by death on Sunday afternoons) he knowingly gave hoes herpes. Lock his nasty ass up right thurr. However, one of my good (white) friends said the strangest thing to me the other night while having a couple of beers.
