I feel like white folks are way more resentful at Mike Vick for this than anything and I'm trying to understand why. Even I don't feel as strongly as i used to about him bc i feel like there are worse people out here than him out and about, and I'm spending my righteous energy on them more than Vick.
Maybe racism is so bad i feel uncomfortable when any group of white people criticize a black figure strongly, and it's out of a weird sense of self preservation. Like, I'm agreeing with the points people make about him being a POS but I'm also watching y'all for racism bc you do that so much. No disrespect, either. Being honest for the sake of understanding.
petes lack of younger and POC support is the death knell for him. the media cant manufacture that and they cant be seen pushing that. He has 0 shot of actually winning because of that. Thus you see the shift.
