Whoopi Goldberg used her first day on the daytime chat show Tuesday to defend football star Michael Vick in his dogfighting case.

Goldberg said that "from where he comes from" in the South, dogfighting isn't that unusual.

"It's like cockfighting in Puerto Rico," she said. "There are certain things that are indicative to certain parts of the country."

Well this just really pissed me off...

I remeber a time when in the south, it isnt that unusual to have blacks people as slaves?? Remeber that?? Did that make it okay???

Hell no it didnt!!! I am fully aginst what Vik did.. And have no respect for people like him.. And Whoopie, shut the hell up!!!

Am sertinly not saying anything rasist here either, so dont go there, I said that to make a point.. Just like she did...

Right! Yet another good point!! Theres so many things that seem comman to a group of people.. Yet does that make it okay???

NO way !!!

It only feeds the beast, and Whoopie Goldberg just bit off more than she could chew on this one.. BAD move Whoopie..

I hope she comes back and clears that crap up... And says well I didnt mean it that way.. But at this point thats the word folks..

Its like the way I heard it. She was talking like some hickerbilly saying..
"You aint from around here are ya boy?"
"Its how we do thangs round here, if you dont like get on out."

Pure crap!!! Enough people have been trying to stop that mentality and she gets on TV to say what she said!!!
[censor] that [censor] [censor] [censor] with a [censor] [censor] a paper clip [censor].

you know that slogan they use around here? The "deny ignorance" one.

You two should definitely look into that sometimes.

Slavery was quite popular throughout the north as well there folks.

I have also lived in the south my whole life and have yet to meet an incestual couple. Though I hear it's quite common amongst England's Royal Family....perhaps you were thinking of them? /sarcasm

Please refrain from speaking out of your asses until you educate yourselves a bit.

A rant thread is where we speak about RANTING!!

If you dont like it man.. Then dont read it!!

Do you have anything to add about Vik? And him killing dogs with his BARE hands???

Do you have anything to add about how she worded it??

Or you just going to try to make attacks aginst me, becasue you cant find anything else to attack.. I guess thats the case..

Becasue you totally missed my point...

Way over your head dude!!

Slavery was quite popular throughout the north as well there folks.

No way!! really??? You missed my sarcasm too huh??

This has nothing to do about slaves Jason.. But a well placed heated point..
IF you dont like the heat, get out of my kitchen!!!

It has to do about a claim whoopie Made about things being comman place in sertin areas, but does that make them right??

How is that talking out my ass.. You missed the point..
And put yourself on my S*&t list...

now i'm not defending vick here but this is common to the area he was raised in and doesn't seem like a big deal to him

if you were raised in the south and had grown up around dog fighting your whole life you would probably take part in it or at the very least acknowledge it as something people you know are going to do.. not necessarily agree with it, but respect it i guess.

it's the same when people do something i don't agree with but realize this is what this person knows and this is what they do and this is what they're accustomed to and how they have been brought up

the only beef i have with vick is that he through away his career

whether it be dog fighting, drugs, violence or anything else an NFL career is not something you just throw away for some petty crap like that.. imo, THATS what makes vick an idiot, wasting his talent on some stupid dogs

She was more excusing the behavior, than defending it. She was playing Devil's advocate just cause, she's also a comedian. It's not that serious.
