I Just Don’t Get It (a Rant)

Pluueeaassee! Now I've heard it all. Whoopie Goldberg is defending Michael Vick's dog-fighting, trying to excuse it as him being from the south where it is a 'culture' thing. Bull. Shit. That's like saying it is okay for Hitler to kill Jews because it was a 'culture' thing. Give me a break. I just don't get it. I don't understand dog-fighting or cock-fighting and, I realize a lot of people will take offense at this, but I'm really not too crazy about humans boxing it out. At least they know what they're getting themselves into, however, and are generally equipped with gloves, mouth guards and referees to stop things from getting out of hand. The animals? They've got nothing. Now we're supposed to believe that Michael Vick didn't know any better.

What do you think?
