Michael Vick is the subject of a petition started asking for him to be banned from Jets training camp in Cortland, NY because of his 2007 conviction for federal dogfighting. WHAT? Despite the fact that he has served prison time, remained an upstanding "reformed" individual, steered clear of controversy--even at the expense of rivalry with his own brother...he is still being used as the third-party example to any scandal that emerges about other African-American athletes, he is not being allowed to move on as a rehabilitated human being. Yet, much graver offenses by their Caucasian counterparts go explained, excused, forgotten or dsimissed with less peanlty on their human liberties. The value of Afircan-Americans in the eyes of America is a diminshed one., and in light of this, awareness and action on behalf of and from the African-American communities must result in a brutal wake-up call.
