    Listening him on Sirius NFL radio, I have never heard so much racist stereotyping going on by a radio announcer. Some of the gems he spewed:

    • Although, dog fighting is not just a black thing, when blacks are involved in dog fighting there are usually drugs involved too. He estimates that 80% of dog fights when black are involved also have drugs.
    • In the San Deigo and Phoenix areas, ALL dog fighting is run by Mexican gangs.

    I can't believe I actually heard what I heard.

    I'm not saying he's right, but can you prove him wrong? And Shannon Sharpe, a black man, is racist against blacks?

    I think the big question is how Shannon Sharpe has such inside info on the "sport".

    Some of the most racist people on this earth are African American. You forget about Jackson and Sharpton calling for those Duke kids heads based on the fact they where rich and white.

    Anyone who did not agree that those kids where guilty where racists according to some african americans. Same thing with Vick.

    A lot of egg on a lot of faces these days. I am not a racist guy, but there are A LOT of very racist black people.

    Incredibly as it seems, Mexican gangs have indeed moved from **** fighting to Dog fighting. They usually stage both together. I can't stand Sharpe (eventhough he is the most illustrous alumni of Savannah State (and Savannah has about ten of his illigetimate kids to prove it)), but I can't see this as being racist, he is, unfortunately speaking the truth!

    Did anyone catch Charles Barkley yesterday? He was true Charles, when asked about the Vick situation, he said that Vick is an idiot, putting a $130 million dollra contract on the line, to get involved in dog fighting, is just plain stupid.

    Why can't people be racist when talking about their own race in racist terms? Racism is making predetermined judgements about a race based on their race. It doesn't matter if he is talking about his own race. It is still a racist comment. He did make comments about Mexicans too.

    I'm sorry I started this thread by the way I did. Maybe calling him a racist without at least a question mark, was the wrong way to go. I just thought those comments were just a inflamatory.

    I'll bow out now. If the moderators want to lock or delete this thread, I will not object. Sorry about that.

    Like I asked before, can you prove him wrong? Maybe you should try and do that before just calling him a racist.

    Well gentlemen, lets just look at the facts:

    1.) Shannon Sharpe looks like a Horse
    2.) Joey Porter has dog-fighting dogs
    3.) Joey Porter's neighbor had a Giant Horse
    4.) Joey Porter's dog-fighting dogs killed the neighbor's Giant horse.

    I can see why Mr. Sharpe is on that side of the fence.
    There are giant horses involved for christ sakes.

    Your facts suck since the horse that was killed was a 29 inch mini horse (which was smaller than the mastiff), and Porter's dogs (a mastiff and a pit bull) were not involved in dog fighting. Other than that, your "facts" were spot on.

    it's a giant horse pal. get your story straight. I'm tired of having to go around these forums and correct everybody. If you don't know what you are talking about that's fine, but don't make stuff up and say i'm wrong when i use FACTS.

    Gentlemen, these are the facts. And they are undisputed.
