To elaborate a lil further, the sensitivilty to this dog issue differentiates based on culture or upbringing. For the most part, blacks and whites look at dogs differently. Whites look at dogs as a member of the family, living inside the home, riding around in the car, dressing them up in clothes, kissing them in the mouth. In most black communities, you won't find such a thing. Most dogs are kept in the back yard and in my 39 years, i don't think i've ever seen a black person riding with their dog in the car... its just different and thats why some are more angered by Vick's actions than others.

It's a great point and something we can discuss.

But I'm sure there are plenty of blacks out there who let their dog ride in the car.

I was going to comment on whites and how we treated blacks not too long ago but
I'll leave it alone.
