|WTF is wrong with R.L. White (president of NAACP)?|
How can R.L. White (NAACP) support Mike Vick and his actions by saying something as dense as 'Mike Vick wouldn't be vilified as much had he killed a person'. What kind of crap is that? This is not a white/black thing! Michael Vick is one of the "faces of the NFL", so of course he's going to be under more scrutiny than say a third string cornerback, but I truly don't believe race is an issue. Furthermore, the NAACP further proves that the black community needs new leaders. What are your thoughts on R.L. Whites comments, and should Vick be let back into the lead?
lead should be league**
I think the real question here is: How did a marginal QB like Mike Vick become one of 'the faces' of the NFL? He certainly isn't as good as a Drew Brees or a Carson Palmer, yet the NFL shamelessly promoted him like he was John Elway!
What's wrong with him?
Who else is gonna support him no one maybe he feels bad for vick lol no one else does he should rot in hell!!!!! There's no way he should be sticking up for him!!!!
Difference Between Hunting Bears to Stuff Them, Bull Fights, and Dog Fighting?
Let's see, breeding, fighting and executing will get you a good number of years in jail. In NFL terms he would be probably suspended for a year afterwards with strict survellience. Add in that he was fundiing and gambling on the fights, which can equate to a lifetime ban from the NFL like Art Schliecster received in 1984 i believe ( i might be a few years off) because the NFL highly prohibits gambling on any events. So unless someone slips some hardcore moonshine or Tequila in Roger Goodell's morning coffee before he makes the announcement, bye bye Michael Vick.
i love how they say he has a family and a wife and he cant go to jail... well where was his family all of these months they must of known what he was doing so he is a dick and the ncaap shuld just stay out of it
I can't even begin to contemplate how fix the NAACP anymore...
hes a fricken retard go on google or yahoo images and type in michael vick fight dogs
He's an idiot....trying to pull the race card again and anything else that can get him in the spotlight.
sounds like he needs more campaign fund
It's sad that an organization that has done so much good historically has sunk so low. I was especially appalled at how, in defending Vick, he attacked the co-defendants who accepted plea deals first. Now, aren't they African-Americans as well? Odd how the people in the case who aren't millionaires were attacked by White in order to defend the one who is. White is obviously more concerned about money than justice.
FYI...not all African Americans rely on the NAACP.
Just a note, that the leadership of the NAACP doesn't have a real clue about what is going on. There are some real injustices out there due to racism, but they are focused on Michael Vick? That doesn't make sense. R.L. White doesn't mention that hunting is licensed and legal, but dog fighting is a felony in 46 states and federally. And was illegal when Vick started it. Why wasn't White saying this before Vick got arrested if it was really an issue with him? As far as your comment the gambling and racketeering charges were dropped. They were never filed. There are gambling charges that are still applied. But a new set of gambling and racketeering charges were never filed due to the plea agreement. He still has two sets of gambling charges against him.
He thinks it's OK to commit crimes if you're black. And if blacks like certain crimes, those crimes should be legal.
I think Pickles is right, Vick paid him. Civil rights is a business now, not a consciousness. Is White his slave name?
