"“It’s a cultural thing, I think,” Jamie said. “Most brothers didn’t know that, you know. I used to see dogs fighting in the neighborhood all the time. I didn’t know that was Fed time. So, mike probably just didn’t read his handbook on what not to do as a black star.”
 
"While he has a way of lightening even the most sensitive of subjects, Jamie is sincere in his belief that the quarterback is not being given a fair shake."

“I know that cruelty to animals is bad, but sometimes people shoot people and kill people and don’t get time”

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nobody said that the justice system is flawless but why do apologists justify bad behavior by pointing to other bad behavior?

===========================================

Jamie continued. “I think in this situation, he really didn’t know the extent of it, so I always give him the benefit of the doubt.”

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yeah, Jamie. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt. Since he might not have been aware of the seriousness of the LEGAL consequences of his actions, it excuses the evil that he participated in and gives him a moral pass to torture animals.


Add Jamie Foxx to the ghetto trash list. I'll never watch another film with this fool again.

Wonder how Jamie feels about the fact that hate crimes are worthy of more time in prison than regular crimes?  I mean if the sick friggin racists aren't aware of this fact then should they get more time?

Disclaimer:  Racism is sickening and its only being used as an example here.  An example that is ridiculous as the one Jaime Foxx was quoted as saying above.

Old School. I couldn't agree more.

Whatever happened to TAKING RESPONSIBILITY for one's actions?

I saw Eric Michael Dyson on O'Reilly tonight. He was making similar arguments to Foxx. Talking about Black people being overlooked during Katrina. What in the HELL does that have to do with this? Apparently page one of the apologist's handbook is excuse bad behavior by pointing out other bad behavior.
When I see the pictures of those abused dogs it makes my blood boil. NOBODY has a right to do that, let alone excuse it. I swear that I'm going to look into joining a group that is involved with friggin over these dogfighting scumbags. I've had enough.

 Why do you guys get so worked up over an opinion?  Jamie Foxx doesn't matter, Marbury doesn't matter, hell, I don't matter.  The last time I checked "Freedom of Speech" was included in the Bill of Rights.  Stop being such big crybabies.   Vick is going to jail.   No lawyer, no amount of money, no miracle from God is gonna save his behind now.    I'm not gonna go see anymore movies that have J. Foxx in them anymore, wahhhh!!   I'm sure he's gonna lose a lot of sleep over that.  Oh yeah, Don't remember anyone putting Mel Gibson on blast (not gonna see anymore of his movies) for his racist person comments.

Ignorance MATTERS.
Mel has his issues and he was raked over the coals for it. Some people will never see another Gibson film again. That is their choice. Despite good reviews, his last film, Apocalypto didn't do that well making a modest 10 million dollar profit in theatre admissions.

We assumed that Marbury was a moron but Foxx was a surprise to many. I was beginning to tire of him anyway as he has become quite full of himself recently but these comments were just absurd. The fact that Vick should be given a pass because he didn't know that dogfighting was a federal crime? So, if it wasn't, mauling and killing animals would be ok.
darn Foxx, darn Vick, darn that scumbag DMX, and any other piece of garbage who is so insecure in his own manhood that he thinks fighting dogs makes him a man. Whatb is actually does is make him an ignorant piece of garbage .If I ever witnessed one of these events, believe me,I'd make sure that these fool would be running from the pit like the little girl that they are. Dogfighters are subhuman feces and so are their apologists.

Wow, isn't the race card getting a little old. To say someone should read the handbook to know they shouldn't be fighting and killing dogs is a little much don't you think.

You have a President who engages in people fighting which has killed tens of thousands of PEOPLE, yet you are more pissed off about what Vick has done to dogs. In S. Korea they eat dogs, i seen dogs in cages on the back of motorcycles so jammed packed you couldn't see space between them, on their way to market. I'am not saying what Vick did was not a bad thing, but there are far worst things that should have our attention first.

Here we go with the distraction argument again.
What is going on in Iraq has absolutely nothing to do with this crime.
Iraq is reported on every day and the entire country is concerned about it.

This is a story that has people up in arms because of their love for domestic animals and it was perpetrated by a high profile athlete..

The situation in Korea is heartbreaking. How these scumbags can treat dogs in this manner is beyond my comprehension. All most dogs want to do is love and care for their master and these Korean slime still consume them in this day and age. Unbelievable.

I agree with Chillery, we are too consumed with what other
people say or think when it does not effect us. Michael Vick
has to pay for his crimes, not anyone in the forum. Anasamas,
the rules that govern our country do not apply to other countries.
If you go out to dinner and order a steak, should a person from
India take offense and want you imprisoned??

Man, the mainstream media plays citizens of this country like puppets.  Was this story relevant to discuss when it broke?  Yes, it was probably worth a discussion or two, but c'mon people, this story is over a month old....the man pled guilty and will do his time, what more needs to be discussed?  Ongoing war, resignation of the Attorney General, starvation and genocide in parts of the world.....but naturally, the Vick story deserves everybody's moral input.  Was it bad? Yes.  Was it bad enough to deserve headline news over every other terrible thing affecting HUMANS in this world?  Absolutely not.  Get a grip people, this story should be DEAD until December.

I  think  the  average joe  might  not  realize  that  dog fighting 
was a  serious federal  crime  but  I  do  think  Vick  had  to  have  known  that  it was against the law.  But  I  think Foxx  is  correct  only  to the  extent that I  do not  belive  Vick  thought he  would  ever  get  the  book thrown  at  him. 
 He  has  always  been  privileged ,,,  the  book  has  always fallen  short of  being  thrown  at  him.  Unfortunately,  not this time.    That  being  said ,  I  think the  feds  are  using  Vick
celebrity to make  a big  splash and that  if  this  was some  joe smoe,  he  wouldn't  get this  degree  of  punishment.  Keep  in  mind,  his  punishment goes  beyond serving time.  He might  not  get  his  career back   100 million bucks ,,,,  for  the  llife of
some  halfwit in-bred  frankenstein pit bull. 
 
My  punishment would be ,,,,,,,  6 months in prison,  heavy  fine,
community service towards  prevention  of  cruelty to animals.
 
from  the  NFL ......  one  year suspension, without pay.
 
After that,  he  should  be  free to  restore his  life and  deal  with
the ramifications  in  society for  his  actions.   It  is  possible that no  team would  want  to  have  PETA chasing  them  around
as  they  play  their  schedule in the NFL.  or maybe  nobody
wants  to  cheer  for his team ,  so  nobody  would  ever  sign  him.

as one Falcon said of Vick "He's not that smart"...I think that is an over statement of the obvious..  thats also why he's not a good qb...as for Jamie Foxx.........another retard heard from...they just dont know when to keep quiet..

Vpnyc, I never said that any country has any right to impose their laws on other countries but there's nothing wrong with making your opinions known and trying to sway sentiment. If the Korean dog story was reported on a grand scale in the U.S., I think that most Americans would boycott EVERYTHING Korean.

You are concerned about thousands of young men and women losing there lives in a war based on a lie. But your outraged about dogfighting. Not saying  dogfighting is ok but I believe the whole thing should be put into perspective. If those were your sons and daughters or brothers and sisters dying I wonder would you be as passionate about this dogfighting issue. I think there are bigger fish to fry.

It is a cultural thing, I know what he is saying!!!   I don't agree with what Vick did, but I understand what Jamie is saying.

dosumpun, "concerned" was a poor choice of words.
Your take on the war can be debated but there IS a purpose to it whether it be noble or foolish. We will not have that political debate here
My point was that injuring humans or animals for no reason other than your own enjoyment or profit is reprehensible.

Front Row, *I* don't understand any of what Foxx is saying. Maybe you can clear it up for me.
