Here are two YouTube Vids relating to Perceptions on Pitbulls and Race. What are your thoughts?
I won't be surprised if that happens to you as well. Hope you have papers.I think the premise of the study ( that they didnt do well at lol) was to show the stigma that the media has put on "DANGEROUS DOGS", is all theese attacks are from gang banger drug dealers. Where i live there is a dangerous dog list pitbulls are #1 and are banned in the town, if u have one u get 30 days notice to vacate the dog then they will confiscate it and put it down. Its a real BS situation my buddies AB was killed cause he had no papers and the animal control guy said he was a pit.
That's kind of what I was going for with this thread... When you see a ganster type black dude walking down the street with the pitbull... what do you think? If you see a girl like me walking down the street with a pitbull, what do you think? Obviously, some of us more educated people will be looking at the dog and not the person, but some people look at the person.Winnipeg has had a ban on pitbulls and pitbull type breeds for 21yrs now.. and I guess we are lucky cause our AC is pretty slack.. cause I've seen a lot of dogs in our city come to our vet clinic as "boxer" crosses which are CLEARLY pitbull crosses..
I know here they are trying to get the ban lifted.. but it comes down to the government thinking that if it happens the "gangs" of our city will go back to breeding these dogs to use as protectors and so forth..
Its the biggest issue here honestly.. if they weren't so stereotyped that only "gang" like people would have them.. the ban here may honestly be lifted... even one of the city counselors said that on TV.. that people with bad natures.. like gangs.. and drug dealers.. would just end up getting them and more bites would occur.
Its funny you say that. I always wonder if people who can treat animals in such a manner (thugs that dogfight) and also gang members who don't think twice about killing someone, can have any kind of love toward anything? I know some people, like myself, are far too sensitive. However, people of that type seem to have no feelings at all.yeah, white f-ing thugs have pit bulls, too. as do asian f-ing thugs..........
dog fighting is large anywhere people like to bet. even here in the tiny town where i live there is rumor..so far I have no conrete evidence because if I did I would turn the ******* f-ing wanna b thugs in.
gun toting, pit bull yeilding thugs have no reguard for animal life nor for human life.
This is very true.I don't usually see a lot of people with a pit bull. I see the majority of people with American Bullies. You see American Bullies everywhere; you see them in rap videos, TV shows, commercials, etc. These are what people think pit bulls are. I see more thugs (of all races) with American Bullies than with pit bulls (APBT). They wouldn't know what a pit bull was if it licked them in the face.
Unfortunately many ACO's and the general public aren't educated enough to know what a pit bull really is. People see a short muzzled, short haired, big headed, and muscular dog and automatically assume that it is a pit bull. I have shocked many people who have come up to Mater to pet him and ask what kind of dog he is... I typically tell them he is a pit bull mix and they always say he is too small because they are so used to the big "scary" so called pit bulls on TV.
