    Society is damaged when an old man in power is a racist. Can you be any more oblivious?





    You do realize that calling me dramatic and then following that accusation with what amounts to the above is what those of us with fancy book-learnin' call "ironic", right?

    Especially when you consider the fact that kids were not involved at all (in other words, bringing kids into it is simply retarded), Vick did NOT receive a hero's welcome (thus claiming he did is retarded), thus you simply made up a bunch of retarded melodramatic nonsense because, presumably, an intelligent rebuttal was something far beyond your capablities.

    Good stuff, right there. +1000 for not even trying.
    Words do not damage anything and he has shown with his actions that he is not racist.

    Please provide an example of words doing damage.

    Physical injury generally causes psychological injury as well, especially if maiming and killing are involved. That makes it worse than psychological injury alone. Therefore Vick's crime was worse that what Sterling did, which, bad as it was, inflicted only psychological damage, and was not even legally criminal.

    Is there any business besides professional sport where Vick would not have been banned for life? No company I ever worked for (mostly insurance and manufacturing) would have kept my a day past the day I was arrested. Can anyone think of an exception other than pro sport? The legal profession is notorious for readmitting disbarred members, but would even lawyers be so lenient with someone convicted of dogfighting?

    Sterling deserves a lifetime ban from all professional association with sport franchises. Vick's worse behavior merits the permanent reduction in job opportunity and earning potential that an identical ban would produce, and it is deplorable that he got off with anything less.
    Who suffered psychological damage from what Sterling said?

    Funny, you say Sterling hasn't hurt any people (though if you looked a little closer, he has) but what evidence do you have of Vick hurting people?
    Excuse me but that case was adjudicated and he paid a fine.

    he is a changed man now and he lives his life cleanly.

    Isn't that what you said about Vick?

    Why would you hold an old, settled case against Sterling, but not Vick?

    Context is key. I only brought that up to counter the "well sterling never actually hurt anyone" claims.

    Oh, start with every African-American member of his team, then add every other African-American member of the league, then add every other African-American in the country, then add every non-African-American who supports racial equality, justice, cooperation and friendship.

    I support equality, justice, cooperation and friendship. Do you honest to God believe I am going to be 'hurt' by some partly coherent ramblings of an 80 year old man vented towards his 30 year old girlfriend said because he was upset she was bringing black men to his arena? Are YOU honest to God 'hurt' by that?

    If so...how sad. For you I mean.

    That is a far greater problem than an individuals racist rant.

    This one isn't even close. It shows the contempt people have for the rich old white man.

    An individual racist's rant is a far greater problem than the psychological pain felt by the targets of his rant???? Especially when his own employees are among the targets???

    Sorry, pal, but your powers of critical thinking have deserted you. Strike that- you might well never have possessed any powers of critical thinking to begin with.

    This sh**'s been going for 100s of years now and it is about time for it to start dying completely out, especially among the rich and powerful, on account of their disproportionate power and influence over the lives of others.
