    WOW, that's all I can say.

    Give the guy a chance to redeem himslef, he has more than paid his debt for the crime that he committed. O have no problem with him being allowed to play and earn a living again, but to have a rally to support him?? Seriously the guy killed puppies, hell even Mr. Burns couldn't kill all the puppies, and he once blacked out the sun!!!

    Thanks for raising the bar? I like the idea of people coming out and supporting Vick. A person in his position can do more to help animal rights groups at this point. I hope at some point they embrace him and not only let him turn his life around, but further the cause of animals. As far as your highly informative and "above the fray" links. Is it on or what?

    Really? You don't know what context means, then.

    Both your links add doubt to the topic not clarity. The first a grassy knoll, wah-wah piece about the guy whom doesn't like Mcnabb. Then you follow it up with the write the date down in pencil not pen, because it might not happen. Why do you taunt us so with your superfluousness!

    I'm glad BB didn't bring him to Boston. I thought Vick should have been suspended for another year if only to bring more attention to a grossly abusive sport. It would be absurd if the NAACP marched on his behalf and if that happens, I would guess the march won't be endorsed by the national organization.

    Put in the proper context, one should take the story with a grain of salt, no?

    It means that to draw conclusions like this is necessarily a race based movement is certainly jumping to conclusions. Yet that is precisely what OP does.

    Do you people not even know what the word context means?

    I don't care if it's race based or not. I think people supporting Vick is a good thing. I don't care which group gets the ball rolling, if it's blacks great. In the long run Vick can do allot to positively affect dog groups. I am all for his redemption, even though I never cared for him as a player or QB.

    Umm... we are talking about the NAACP, aren't we?!? The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People? Would you also expect them to do this if Vick were white?

    People care more about random dogs in this country, than they do random people.

    After the incident with a person crossing the street in Hartford I'm afraid I agree...

    From what I understand, the NAACP is a controlled opposition group funded by the Rockefellers.(they've also done so with others like the women's lib movement - this was NO grassroots movement like many were lead to believe)

    They got a $100,000 grant from family's philanthropist foundation in the 80s but I can't find any substantiation since so I think it's garbage unless proven.

    That sounds fishy to this skeptic... anything to back it up.. NAACP is not a big fan of the Rockefellers from what I have read.

    Found this link...Freedom's sword: the NAACP and the ... - Google Books

    They were providing money to the NAACP as early as 1929 by way of their efforts in Harlem. They got their money from the Rockefeller Foundation, started by the big man himself, John D., and is separately administered from the family fortune. Several people who worked for one also went on to work for the other so they are intertwined hence some confusion and misinterpretation.

    Their problems apparently were with one Rockefeller in particular- Nelson, the governor of New York from 1959-1973.
