First, let me say that I don't like pitbulls. I don't trust them as far as I can hold out my arm and I don't know why anyone would want to own one. That being said, I do know someone closely connected to the people and dog in this story - the pitbull was, for once, not doing anything wrong nor had an aggressive history (unlike the stabber!). He saw another dog and was simply going over to smell it - like ALL dogs do! It was Ewing who acted like a maniac, freaked out and attacked both the dog and its owner.

CB11, if we could only do as dogs do, then we would not have so much to do, and perhaps only have dodo to do.

Racism; a policy based on race. Does not specify species

Definition of Race: A race is a group of people thought to share certain distinctive physical characteristics, such as facial structure or skin color. Racial characteristics are thought to be biologically inherited (unlike ethnic characteristics, which are cultural). WOW, LMFAO, LOL, LMAO and all the other terms that really denote the new way of communication without actually saying anything!! Great Scott Batman, do we have a new definition of racism here? Note the term "people" above....... FYI: I hate Pit Bulls, so I guess I am a racist! LOLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!

I don't think that hating dogs would be considered racist, but just hating a certain breed because of a bigoted view on a particular feature would be considered racist of dogs. But we may have a larger problem than anyone has failed to mention, is hating just a male pit bull, racist, no but it could be considered male or gay bashing? Calling a female pit bull a bitch, would that be offensive? Going to a dog show and laughing at the dog's owner prancing along side the dog while showing it? Some of these statements could raise many questions?
