No everyone needs to calm down and realize it for what it is: A black guy messed up and must pay for it. End of story.
No one here is absolving Micheal Vick from the crimes he committed; I'm certainly not. And I personally don't think people in the court of law or public opinion are making this out to be a racial case.

As for racial profiling...now some may disagree here, but that is simply code word for "profiling blacks". It really has nothing, if anything, to do with caucasions or Russians or Germans or whomever. Since 9/11, however, I'll throw our Arab and Muslim brothers in the group of those who now get profiled, so to speak. But we're talking about two different things now.

Look Quake and Rave...I'm going to let this drop and maybe we can pick this up in a different thread on a different night.

Shalom

This is why you need Mentos. To justify your questionable problem solving skills.
