Michael Vick and Other Scapegoats

Scapegoat: an individual or group that is the object of blame or displaced aggression-Dictionary of Psychology

On August 13th, the Philadelphia Eagles football team signed former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick to a one year contract with an option for a second year. Vick had been released from federal prison after serving eighteen months of a two year sentence on charges of cruelty to animals and running an illegal dog fighting gambling operation. Vick, a talented athlete ,was subsequently reinstated and deemed to be eligible to play professional football by NFL Commissioner Roger Godell. The signing of Vick raised the ire of many “animal lovers”. in the Philadelphia region. The controversy clearly broke along racial and cultural lines pro and con Vick’s signing by the Eagles. Many whites opposed the deal while blacks generally were happy for Vick and the Eagles.
Keep in mind, Europeans love their dogs. Whites have a long history with dogs beginning with their domestication of the canine in the Steppe region and caves of Eurasia. In the cultural and historic background of whites, dogs have played an integral part in their existence. In fact whites have a saying “a dog is man’s best friend”. Needless to say many dog lovers were outraged by Vick returning to the NFL. Some white Eagles fans are upset with the team for signing him. In my view, this controversy and the venom spewed against Vick seems totally out of proportion to these people’s lack of indignation concerning so many other current events and issues. As usual the media is using this to create controversy and a diversion to avoid covering more important matters. There aren’t that many hard core dog lovers out there to warrant the amount of coverage they have given this story.
It dawned on me, it’s not about Michael Vick or what he did to some dogs although whites do love themselves some dogs. Michael Vick is being used as a scapegoat. Many of you are familiar with the Biblical ritual of scapegoating where two identical goats would be presented to the high priest. Lots would be chosen, one goat would be ritualistically sacrificed to the Israelites notion of god while their sins were vicariously projected upon the other goat by the high priest. That goat was taken into the wilderness and released at the edge of a very steep cliff so that it fell and died from the fall. The goat that was not ceremonially sacrificed by the priest, the one that had the sins of the people placed upon its head and lead out from the temple into the wilderness was called the scapegoat. It was a collective ritualistic form of absolution, healing and atonement.
In psychology the term scapegoat also denotes projection of guilt or other negative emotions onto an external object or person. In this case the misfortune or behavior of another is the focus of attention which allows those passing judgement on him or her to assume a position of morality and righteousness that is undeserved. In this case Michael Vick becomes the target and recipient of the scorn and animus of white people. This projection of their anger and hatred against Vick allows them to ignore their own transgressions, their inability or unwillingness to address the ills of society and their own personal shortcomings. Instead they rail against Michael Vick the wretched scapegoat. He becomes the object of their displeasure and frustration about whatever is going on in their lives and their uneasiness about themselves.

When I thimk of animals, they all fall under the same category... A DOG, A CAT, A CHICKEN, A COW, A DUCK, A PIG.
WHOEVER KILL AND EAT THESE ANIMALS ARE AS GUILTY AS MICHAEL VICK. IN FACT, VICK FOUGHT AND KILLED A FEW DOGS FOR JUST A SHORT TERM WHILE MOST AMERICAN EAT ANIMALS EVERYDAY. IF YOU ARE NOT A VEGETARIAN-VEGAN, THEN YOU ARE NOT GUALIFIED TO CAST STONES AT MICHAEL VICK OR ANY OTHER PERSON FOR THAT MATTER.... S T O P I T !!!

When you are good at whatever you do, there will always be folk who will search out something to put you down. Some may come like they are all perfect and do no wrong but we know the deal. They really envy you and want to take your place. If you EAT MEAT (ANIMALS), you can not point the finger at Michael Vick. If you are unwilling to forgive him then you are a HATTER and you need to go get treatment for your sickness!
