NAACP Official: Vick Persecuted Worse Than if he Killed a Human
Some people abuse language in terrible ways, but something tells me that RL White is not kidding when he says that Michael Vick is being persecuted.
R.L. White, president of the Atlanta chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said his organization does not condone dogfighting or any other illegal activity, but he told reporters that Vick should be given a chance to redeem himself.
â€œIn some instances, I believe Michael Vick has received more negative press than if he wouldâ€™ve killed a human being,â€ White said. â€œThe way he is being persecuted, he wouldnâ€™t have been persecuted that much had he killed somebody.â€
I find it offensive to suggest that Michael Vick is being persecuted. He engaged in illegal activities of his own volition. But I must admit that I do agree that there probably more press about this than if he had killed or raped someone. It is kind of a sad thing. You never know what can happen, Ray Lewis is still playing.
