Sometimes you just have to laugh. The awe inspiring stupidity of some people beggars the minds of normal people. Is such self destructive idiocy an example of a well-deserved lack of self respect? Is it engendered by a self absorbed denial of the person’s accountability? Is it actually possible that you can take the thug out of the ghetto but you can’t take the ghetto out of the thug?
In a stellar example of gross stupidity Michael “Sick” Vick tested positive for marijuana last month [September, 2007], drawing the ire of the judge who will be sentencing him in December. U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson ordered Vick confined to his Virginia home between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. with electronic monitoring. Vick must going forward submit to random drug testing.
How thuggishly stupid does a hominid – I won’t say person in Vick’s case – have to be to toke up after being convicted of federal felonies and while awaiting sentencing for those crimes? Is it possible that the Black entertainers, athletes and pundits who’ve defended Vick’s behavior are actually right? Does Michael Vick have reduced responsibility because drug use, dogfighting and a plethora of other antisocial behaviors are just part of his ghetto culture?
