BET and American society have decided to reward Michael Vick for being a convicted felon.
“The Michael Vick Project” is a 10 part series that will begin airing on the network on February 2.
I remember hearing something about this a couple of months ago. I think I really thought that it was a spoof of some sort, but oh no. It appears to be real. This is a screen shot I took from BET.com.
What is this world coming to? Why do we keep rewarding this man? How can we give him credit for rising above when we know that he was still running a dog fighting ring when he was making millions of dollars playing quarterback for The Atlanta Falcons?
I have a pretty high tolerance for things that are unfair, but this is appalling. I’m still offended that they let him back into the NFL.
I wish I knew what offended me more, the fact that Michael Vick was practicing cruelty to animals for profit when he was already filthy rich or that a network will pay him money now to talk about it.
Maybe I am most bothered that people will watch “The Michael Vick Project”.
Screw that, BET. I will not be one of them.
