McNabb: Love For Vick

Donovan McNabb, a Negro QB who has been on the receiving end of media malfeasance, had some words of encouragement for his Brother QB, Michael Vick.

"I'm a supporter of Vick," McNabb said Tuesday.

While the media, the NFL, the Falcons and most of the general population of these United States has accepted an indictment as a verdict, McNabb understands that civil rights are precious. He understands that the freedoms of our country are founded upon those rights granted to the individual citizen. He knows that to willfully give up things like presumption of innocence are the very acts that allow for tyranny of the majority.

McNabb is of a people that were enslaved. He understands that Americans owe it to each other, Negro or not, to never allow the degradation of inalienable rights and judicial promises. To do so would be tantamount to a return to slave days.

Certainly, we all also understand that there were dogs that were horribly mistreated. McNabb understands that, as well. And he has clear perspective on the real tragedy in this situation.

"Now, I don't know exactly what happened in that situation, and I think for all of us that have read over the stuff that was over the Internet, the report, you look at it as kind of like, 'Wow, you've got your so-called friends and family members turning their back on you now to make their situation better.' They're throwing you under the bus so that they can clean their name. That's unfortunate. That goes to show, I always have a saying that I've always lived by: If you can't trust family, who can you trust? "

So, while PETA and other groups try to steal the thunder of Vick's famous name to further their cause for the proliferation of animal rights over civil rights; another victim is cast aside.

Family.

This situation is a case study of the decline of the family unit in America. The Negro family.

The media distracts us with reportage of animal rights demonstrations. The media is assiduously and feverishly working to ensure that public opinion is formed and that Vick is guilty in the minds of Americans.

All the while, not a word about a Negro family that is having the ability to trust in their familial love torn apart by the ravages of a federal indictment.

We applaud Donovan McNabb for standing up and making the country aware of this heretofore unreported casualty.

McNabb has made it perfectly and plainly clear for the rest of us:

The indictment against Michael Vick is a declaration of war on Negro families.

And McNabb further puts it into perspective with a possible resolution:

"It's an unfortunate situation, and I just hope everything works out well for him where he can get back out on the field."

That would fix everything.

Brother McNabb knows much of being pre-judged. Recall the boos that reigned down when the Eagles selected the black quarterback from Syracuse over the fine upstanding gentleman running back from Texas.

They rained down too.

Or he can juke his way to Canada. He can fight moose.

" He can fight moose. "

moose are delicious.

Moose fighting is Barbaric, BARBARIC!!!!!!

And I should know I used to kill black folks for fun. Tee-Hee-Hee.

That the NFL is anti-black is self-evident, that it is anti-black family has long been suspected but never proclaimed in words as bold as McNabb's.

Then again, the league has not hid its' disdain for the African-American clan. After all, was it not Alex Karras who was foisted upon America as the only person capable of properly raising a young Webster?

"foisted "

Sir, your word choice is perfect!

I just started reading this blog a few weeks ago. And for the most part, I can't tell if you're being serious or sarcastic...

Sebastian said...

Hey 559,

Just pick a fight with them, you'll find out whether they're serious or sarcastic. Actually they're kind of cool. They're fun to banter with, and they're generally quite logical.

"I can't tell if you're being serious or sarcastic... "

Sir, about what?

Mr.Blackman said...

Well said McNabb.

Now, I'll start liking you again.

It's interesting that other than McNabb, the only NFL player that I have heard of defending Vick is Clinton Portis. He used the argument that since the dog's were Vick's, they were his property and he was free to do anything he chose with them. This did not go over well, generally. McNabb makes valid points about letting the justice system do its job before rushing to judgment, but with the media almost unanimously anti-Vick at this point, will McNabb's words fall on deaf ears?

An interesting connection between Vick, McNabb and Portis; all played college football in the Big East.

Martin said...

"they were his property and he was free to do anything he chose with them. This did not go over well, generally."

Sir, this is a very interesting point. There was a time when the white man was allowed to do anything he chose to do with his 'property', whether it be dogs or the proud negro man. Now, Vick has attained the equal status of the white devil such that he too, can do whatever he wants with his own property.

I would contend, sir, that the NFL/FBI stepped in not because of the *alleged* cruelty to animals, but rather that Roger Goodell thought that he might be next in the ring!

"He used the argument that since the dog's were Vick's, they were his property and he was free to do anything he chose with them. This did not go over well, generally. "

Sir, odd.

Because that argument was used with rousing approval for centuries....when the property was Negroes.

holy shit!

have let the feds know this? it might effect the trial...

Jarrett Carter said...

Not sure about the "war on negro families," but definitely feel that people are blowing McNabb's comments way out of proportion.

Oops Pow Surprise said...

people are blowing McNabb's comments way out of proportion.

Out of proportion? Sir, when the NFL is so committed to its nefarious goals (in this case, the elimination of Brother Michael) that they will literally tear his family apart, overstatement of the importance of the issue is, frankly, impossible.

Goodell is a madman on the loose. If he started literally gunning down his black athletes, it would not be an escalation of hostility so much as simply removing the pretense of civility.

"pretense of civility"

and that post removed your pretense of intelligence...

This is getting boring with Vick...nothing is going to happen until his trial in late November...

I'd rather talk football than keep rehashing this crap and trying to make it into a racial thing when it is not....

Talk football instead of race!!!

FiveFiveNine said...

"trying to make it into a racial thing when it is not...."

You just made my point.

Tripod said...

"That won't be fixed by Michael Vick playing football"

For the record, Miami and Va. Tech were in the ACC when Portis and Vick were in college.

for the record, neither VT or Miami were in the ACC when Vick was playing college ball.

they both joined the ACC in 2003.
