The non-value of Black people

I have yet to see any of the Mike Vick protesters step up to the Jena 6 case or the Megan Williams case. Maybe it has something to do with this.

Vick did not know, Dogs get more love than Blacks in America

Bruce Banter: Poor Michael Vick probably skipped a few history classes in school opting for football practice and did not realize what he was getting himself into. White America loves its Dogs.

Its not just Michael Vick, it’s many Vick fans and supporters (coincidentally the overwhelming majority are black) who do not understand how the media can focus on Vick with 24/7 coverage while the backdrop of an illegal war by Bush that has killed over 3,000 Americans,over 1 Million Iraq’s and cost America approximately 1 trillion dollars wages on while these same anti Vick individuals have no opinion or see no problem.

During Katrina “they” sent air conditioned buses to rescue DOGS , while African Americans were dying in the Superdome heat.During the 60’s in the rural south small Dogs could get on a bus with their owners and occupy a seat while African Americans had to stand and ride the back of the bus and give up their seats to whites.

My point is many boisterous White Americans love dogs more than anybody especially Black Folks.
Black folks in general are not as crazy about animals, especially dogs.
In fact Historically, Black have not forgotten that dogs were used to catch runaway slaves.The love is still there(I know Black Dog Lovers) but its much different, its not on the same level as human love.Its lower.
