The Vick case has certainly helped fan the flames of racial tensions.
Animal welfare supporters, who are overwhelmingly white, wonder how Vick's predominantly black supporters can possible be in favor of this guy. Vick supporters, on the other hand, probably wonder about screaming white protesters with signs calling him an "overpaid criminal" before he's had a trial.
There they go again, turning this into a racial issue. There they go again, screaming for the blood of a successful black man before he's even had an arraignment. And so it goes.
