Vick's Jersey Removed From Rafters

Michael Vick's former high school removed his football jersey from their gym's rafters. Michelle Price, a spokeswoman for the Newport News Public Schools, said Warwick High School principal Varinda Robinson decided to take the jersey down shortly after Vick entered his plea.

"It stayed up through the allegations, but they did decide to take it down once he admitted some guilt."

This is getting borderline ridiculous. I bet they used mike for all sorts of promotional stuff and press and still doing it.

Judging by the name I'll assume she is black. Tom Tom house nigger.

Why remove his jersey? Regardless of what he did, he still accomplished something and the school should be proud that he was once a part of their student body. What he accomplished in high school has nothing to do with whats going on now. Everyone wants to get a dig in.

Screaming and crying: "Leave Michael Vick alone!"

Michael Vick is a dumb ass.....

I went to Warwick, too, and they treated him like a damn God.

I'm happy they took it down.


(and no, I'm not a hater lol)

wow thats sad, i don't like what he did, but they should have let the jersey where it was. He honestly earned his status.

This is just ridiculous. While I don't condone what he's done, his life should not be completely ruined over some DOGS. Folk that mistreat humans don't get this type of treatment from our society.

I just Hope he NEVER EVER gave a penny to the damn school. Becuase they don't deserve us even talking about them.

I agree that they shouldn't condone his crime, but people are making WAY TOOOOOOO Big a deal out of this situation. They were animals. Not that they are not cute and cuddly, but we legally slaughter animals for food. At least he buried them.

The World is Still in pursuit to Crucify Black Jesus. Any black man worth more than 10 Cents (in Chinese Money) with a following has got to be humiliated infront of everone.

This is just done sytematically to prove the White Man's domination over the world.

Then again, he was wrong, and a lot of other men were wrong too, so may be I'm just on my Save-a-brother-campaing again.

goldiilocs you sound like the nerd that was in school that was jealous of Mike. Which sums up to you being a hater. Why are you glad they took his jersey down? It's not like they would replace it with your hater of the year jersey or something. This whole Vick thing is getting outta hand. Sounds like the school just wanted some press. What does is charges have to do with his high school stats or NFL stats................ding ding ding ding not a d@mn thing. Get off Vicks nuts let the man do his little time, and try to get back in the league

im sure they have taken this fallen hero's money/donations before so why not ride with him!? if anything teach the kids to learn from his mistakes!

This shit has went to far.He did well for everybody that put a jersey up or did a fund raiser using his name. when they could make money off him it was fine but now when a man is down they start kicking him even more. why fuck with the good he did in the past he paid for all that then. since they want to do all that, what Mike should do is demand all the money back they made off him. since they want him to pay them back for everything. And if he does that believe me he will be a rich nigga again. because Mike have made all those fuckers alot of money.They probably made more off him than he will ever get back from them. Mike I hate what u did. But i hope u can get your shit back from them and head to the bank and tell them all to kiss your NUTS&BALLS.and when you get back HOLLA @ a sister remember I told u first....lol

white men are mad at black men for dating white women, that's why they focus all there attention on bringing a black man down. This crime did not deserve the attention that it got. I'm not trying to telling black men how to handle there penis, but it's something to think about. either a black man is gay or a criminal. thats all i ever hear.

That principal is so wrong. I do not like dog torture or humilation, however, his current charges have nothing to do with his past accomplishments. This world is getting so politically correct that people can't even give a honest thought about how they really feel or what they really believe in because someone might be offended. Protect the first amendment. PS They did not try and erase OJ's past accomplishments. Put the Jersey back up.

The conspiracy against the "black man" is small in comparison to the conspiracy to "blame the white man for everything." White folks can't take care of themselves let alone manage a conspiracy to keep us down...see the light and get over it. Given what is available to us, all we have to do is clean up our act, work hard and live the dream. Failure today is our own failure...no one elses!!!

This is a great site, but the racist comments really get old.

Anon@8:56 - you stated "The conspiracy against the "black man" is small in comparison to the conspiracy to "blame the white man for everything."-----You stand corrected. The issue is not blaming the "white man". Vick admitted guilt. The issue is the fact that Vick is not receiving the same treatment as Caucasian athletes who have committed crimes. Did President Jimmy Carter come to Vick's rescue like he did for Pete Rose? Is Vick going to be fined $50 grand like Pete Rose? Is Vick going to perform 1,000 hours of community service like Pete Rose? Yes, Rose did serve 5 months in federal prison but hell, that was for tax evasion. Bottom line - Vick SHOULD be held accountable for his actions but got-damn...serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer didn't get this much exposure.

Conspiracy or not, black athletes should know by now that the spotlight is always shining on them the most. And the powers that be are just waiting for our folks to make a mistake so they can pounce. With all that money, he couldn't find a better use for it? I am sorry, anything that dumb deserves what they get. This man is(was) one of the top 3 quarterbacks in the league and this is how he goes out. What's really sad is that he should know better.

Anonymous said...

I went to his Rival high school and know that he has given them so much money, built weight rooms, donated football gear, everything. They should be ashamed of themselves and he is a nut if he gives them another dime. Regardless of his indiscretions after high school he truly earned his place in that case.

"Name 1 white athlele that loss as much so quick"....it is all relative to what they had...name another white athelete that had Vic's contracts and "endorsement" that ran a dog fight ring, chocked and electricuted dogs and then breached his contracts by being put in jail. Check out that Tour de France guy that spent $2MM of his own money to fight doping charges and he lost. Doping is nothing compared to what Vic did. People see Vic's crap as a complete lack of HUMANITY. The poster who spoke about Pete Rose...are you just stupid? If you can't see the difference between what Vic did and gambling/racketeering/tax evasion...then you are not smart enough to engage in a debate with a 3rd grader....game over!

My post was about the incessant need by so many that post here to make everything about "the white man is keeping us down." Vic was a "superstar" that was looked up to by kids of every color. No way am I going to tell my son, who worshipped Vic, that what he did to the dogs was anything other than a pathetic lack of humanity. Inflicting that kind of suffering for personal enjoyment is beyond petty crimes. Tax evasion and dog fighting are NOT the same. Because Vic was a superstar and made more money than God, he is getting the massive attention. I think people are genuinely amazed he was this stupid. As I said before, I enjoy this site, but for God's sake why the need by so many to grind the axe and blame someone else for everything. Race has nothing to do with Dog Fighting. Fact is no white person who is interested in dog fighting could ever get to where Vic did...FACT! And, dog fighting is seen by the general public as only for the pathetically stupid...those not smart enough to see the wrong in it. We should be talking about why so many of us think dog fighting is acceptable....I would like to know that too!

Wrong he is getting al that attention because he is a black.

You are the type of armstrong williams nigga that the white folks need.

Name 1 person who lost so much in dogfighting. You can't. People killed people and got less. You don't address that.

Whatever they do to blacks we must have deserved it. Only when it effects you then you reach out and cry foul. Racism doesn't exsist it is the 21 century. Ppeople should have left louisiana before katrina.

Enron white corperate people destroyed millions of lives you don't see there tributes taken down. what about there punishment.

The fact is Vick was wrong but the punishment doesn't fit the crime. It is clearly overkill and this type of racial underground attack must stop.

Tell me what white nfl player ever had to give back a signing bonus years after signing. There have been killings, drugs. You can't

For black folks There needs to be people calling out injustices when it happens because if they don't tthen who will. I bet you arrived mad late on the jena 6.

I bet you think bell deserved to go back to jail today.

What a tool.

I met one of the daughters who spent the first 10 yrs of her life in mexico same thing.

If I didn't know the daughters last name I would have thought she was white. She even married a white man and had his name and dropped sanchez.

Even if Michael Bell hadn't gotten the attention for the school situation he'd still have been sentenced. His school fight has nothing to do with why he's behind bars now. He's a menace, with a short temper. How many of us go around fighting every time someone says something we don't like? We'd ALL be in jail right now.
He's been given more than enough chances.

Now back to Vick. As I said before, its stupid to forecefuly erase what that man has contributed to that school before. If he set any records on the field, will they bump up the second best to the top of the list?
Yep, I can definitely see it now. "Vick walks across the floor handing the ladies their drinks, before slithering up the stairs onto the stage. With a Falcons helmet on, silver tasseled thong and pink cleats, Michael Vick is the TRUTH!"
He'll for sure be the main attraction at Jarmonica's Bump and Grind.

It pisses me off when people jump on a bandwagon and feel they should scold someone just because everyone else is doing it too. One thing has nothing to do with the other.

Anonymous said...

the goal is to destroy the black race, we can be as careful as possible it's not going to help. the youths are getting killed at a record rate, they throwing all the black men in jail or destroying there careers so that can't get any where. They hardly ever hire a black supervisor and if they do alot of times the whites will get together and quit, especially if its a black man.

Anonymous said...

Why can't black men work 3 or 4 jobs, whatever it takes to pull themselves out of poverty instead of selling drugs, robbery and what not. every black parent should teach their child that one violation of the law is a death sentence. It's a wrap after that. No employer will hire anyone, especially a black man with a record. Michael should have known they were coming for his ass. A young man like him has no excuse for an extensive criminal record prior to jena six.

You know, I'm sitting back looking at both arguments (8:56 & 9:13). Both are making really good points.

However, Anon 8:56 you're riding a thin, thin line here. Yes, I feel Michael Vick should have faced the consequences of his action. He's not some innocent little kid that didn't know any better. If you look back at some of my past comments about Vick, I've always said he should face the music. I'm not one for the white man's trying to keep us down conspiracy either, but I do know this shit has gotten BEYOND ridiculous. Taking down a High School jersey? WTF? That's absolute garbage! I understand MV may have been a role model to many kids. But this more about something that's wrong with the shift in our American value system, not that some high profile dude got caught doing something bad. None of these celebs should be a role model to anyone's kid. You should be a role model to your own damn kid. You wanna know something? When I was a kid, I loooooooooved Whitney Houston! Absolutely bounced around in the mirror with a towel on my head (imitating her hair) singing "I Get So Emotional" and shit! But when I was asked who my role model was, I always said My mama, My grandmothers or aunt- real folks that made a real impact in my life...and we see Whitney turned out to be the most infamous crackhead in the industry!

I'm just saying, seems like folks are still dragging a dead dog. This man is basically ruined already and he has more to go on his own. I agree with you in saying EVERYTHING can't be about whitey's foot on our neck, but RACE does factor into most things in this country. You can not turn a total blind eye to the way the media is not as color blind as we'd like to think they are.

So just because he made bad decisions as an adult, and has taken full responsibility to those actions, that makes it ok to forfeit and disregard all of his accomplishments as a youth? Makes no sense to me, one has nothing to do with the other.

alove said...

MV made bad decisions yes. He apologized for the decisions and acts yes. This is crazy. This says to black boys and girls,if you make a mistake,we will throw you under the bus like you are a worthless piece of s*. Why? The principal isn't thinking about anything but saving face. Nobody cared you had his damn jersey displayed.
Did the school board ask for this? I doubt it.

The continuous kicks up the rear by whites. Ask Judge Clarence Thomas. He currently sees the light since the butt kicking he took from his peers. His butt thought he would receive equal treatment. They showed him differently. Now he is a bitter,old,black man.

I am on the AJC(atl newspaper)blogs and you should see the racist things being said about Mike Vick and anyone that says enough is enough about all of the injustice. If you don't forgive him, that's you. The continued injustice is ignorant and unnecessary.

Yes he should be punished but come on! Black folk you are all a few bad choices from the possible bad treatment or shall I say lynching. White folk unless you can put on my skin tone,you don't deserve to comment on this prejudice ISH.

alove said...

Yes,the principal is black. She is so concerned about Mike Vicks jersey,but her school is one of many in the area, that are under performing. Seems to me her focus is on the wrong thing! She needs to be trying to get additional resources for the students to meet state and federal guidelines. No child left behind!

Anonymous said...

aprill,

seem to me that the school is underperforming because of the lack of respect the students have for educating themselves. More resourse are already available. Those resources are called mom and dad. But hey, isn't "no child left behind" nothing more than a social program that makes up for fucking shit head people who had kids they don't want and never intended to take care of let alone help them with their home work or expect them to do it in the first place??????

Problem with the students is a lack of priorities. Do you think another dumb ass black man who made millions but still couldn't get his mind and character out of the damn ghetto is a good role model for these kids? If you do, then you are part of the problem. If you expect more you cannot give poor characters role models to them. The role models need to be worthy of respect, honor and embody that which you want the kids to strive to be.

The black man is a hell of lot more than a bunch of sports records. Don't see us short!!!!

Fuck you 8:42Pm first of all you {DAMB ASS BITCH}We pay taxes every pay check not just every year to make sure our kids get educated. You say its on the mom and dad .your DUMB ASS must not have kids to fix your mouth to say some shit like that if you do have kids they are to young for you to get your first disapointment.Parents have to work very hard everyday to keep food on there tables and keep clothes on there kids back.What it is these teachers are not smart enough to teach the kids. so now they want to put all the blame on the parents.we go to work everyday and do our jobs thats what they are paid for go to school and teach our kids.they are not performing well.because the bitches like you are all ways trying to point at the next one.We cant stay at these schools every day like they want us to.because we have just what they have a thing called JOBS....If they are willing to pay us there salary to stay at these schools My ass will be there everyday.they are so worried about sagging and sending them home for stupid shit.instead of keeping them in school and getting there test scores up.Thats why kids dropping out of school and being {DUMB AS A BOX OF ROCKS}If we need to do all this everyone need to get there kids out of school and give them home study and let the goverment pay us.They say home study kids are more smarter anyways. So what do that say about you and the schools.BIZOTCH..lol

5:08 you have no idea just how much of a stupid fuck nut you are. You want to know why so many black kids are struggling in school? Its because of fucking dumb ass parents like you who think it is everyone elses job to raise your kid. You just fucking and push them out and then go about your business. I have three kids and I spend an unbelievable amount of time helping them with homework and making sure they know the first priority in their life is education.

The school's job is not to hand feed your dumb ass kid or make up for your failure as a parent to make sure that your kid is respectful in school and "wants" to learn.

You are exactly what is wrong with black america....it is everyone else's responsibility for why we are so fucked up and it is everyone else's responsibility for failing to teach our kids. You fucked up piece of shit with a GOD FORSAKEN SENSE OF ENTITLEMENT. Education is a partnership between the parent and the educatin system. School's responsibility is to education your kid. When your kid needs help it is your parental responsibility to STEP THE FUCK UP and be a parent instead of sitting on your fat ass blaming everyone else.

Do you know what the real problem is 5:08? You are too fucking stupid to help your own kid so all you can do is spout your entitlement crap and blame others for the failure of our own to step up to the responsibilities of parenting....Which are....to do whatever is necessary to help our children become positive contributors to society.
