    Hello Family,

    I happened to click the remote to the Animal Planet, and have been watching a program called Animal Cops, featuring poorly cared for animals from around the country. It's really pretty interesting, and sad too, seeing how negligent some animals owners are. The animal cops come in with a zeal and determination to save the animals, and prosecute the owners. There is money to care for these animals, giving them whatever they need to have a happy and healthy life, and if suggested (by the animal cops) the owners are arrested.

    As i've watched this program a few times, i can't help but notice the way some folk view animals ... it seems they care more for them than human beings.

    There are lots of human beings on the street, ill health, cold, hungry ... yet there is no program on television going out saving them.

    Does it seem that pets / animals in this country receive more love and compassion than many of the human beings found here?

    :heart:

    you know sista , it really raise my head i watch this a lot as well and it's sad
    how America vow to care for the what they (whites) call lovable pet and family
    while there are billions of souls right now in the cold hungry and sick in cardboard
    boxes shoes run down and feet on the ground i work with homeless people and
    have talked to some very bright ones who could teach a person a lot

    yes they the society care for these pets more then the human race in america

    even it may sound harash but we have adopt a program call
    ADOPT A BUM (AAB) is a rare and fairly new system to save a life
    give shelter and food some med attention to these very talented people
    as we are set to run a food drive we still cry foul for grants for medical care
    sad how the gov. overlook these people not even a line or ad about these living
    soul on the street , i once gave a fairly old guy a hotdog he smash it so fast
    down i thought man this so sad i was very upset that so many in america as
    starving like this and we sending money food and meds cross the world and our
    own are here dying slow painful death
    some how someway we will save a few i'll promise that much it's a battle near lost
    but a war we won't end I heard it was another program i think call SAVE-A-LIFE
    SAL i think is more stable and working with RED + CROSS

    it hurts to even talk about how human life is being treated pose to pets for joyment

    In a word: Yes! All one has to do is look at PETA, their rhetoric & goals, to see that.

    I'm so glad you brought this up! I thought I was the only one that thinks that show Animal cops is crazy! They go around arresting people for 'animal cruelty' but see no problem with police brutality against black men who get arrested, along with all of the other things they do against blacks!

    I remember one time when someone accused my husband and I of animal cruelty against our Doberman, Grimm. Thank God the SPCA agent who came out saw that it was false, but if she thought differently, we could've been in big trouble.

    There was another time we brought the dog with us to a flea market (he was a puppy at the time). This crusty old white woman screamed, "That dog is thirsty," because the dog was panting. Mind you, we had given the animal milk and water before we left the house, in addition to carrying extra water for him to drink, which we had been giving him regularly. Plus, what dog doesn't pant? That's what dogs ******* do!

    Anyway, it's true.. white people have an unhealthy obessesion with dogs. They treat them better than humans, and it's just sick! I mean, I love my pets, and I do think that if you take an animal in your home you should take care of it, but getting arrested for animal cruelty? Come on! That's ludicrious! The only time people should be arrested for animal cruelty is if their actions against the animal is going to affect humans in some way!

    Love for life

    I have been blessed to look after 3 dogs, 2 belonging to my sister, one to my mom and I currently have a feline companion whom I love and adore. And yes, he's very smart, and in tune with me.

    Animal cruelty breaks my heart, which is why I try to abstain from eating meat, I find that the treatment of the animals is a cruel industry. Every living breathing entity on the planet can feel love, pain, and has sensory experiences. Of course, I also despise cruelty to hueman beings, one doesn't have to override the other.

    I don't find "hueman beings" more important than the creatures that we share the planet with - this superiority complex I think comes from the Bible and other literature suggesting that we "subdue the earth". The animals of the planet, are not causing the turmoil, the pollution, the destruction and the elimination of other species at alarming rates, people are. And please, it's not just one group of people it's a collective of different people with different skin colors living different cultures abusing the planet. Animals don't litter, they don't dreg up oil and spill it across the oceans, they don't beat their spouses, neglect their children and hoarde resources, people do that. So, on that note alone I can see why some people choose to be animal advocates over people advocates.

    I certainly don't want to kiss my dogs or cats like some Caucasian people seem to enjoy, but I do want to know that they are happy. The difference between the animals and huemans in my viewpoint is that people can choose. Some people choose a lifestyle of excess or addiction that lands them on the street and in dangerous situations. When mankind moves into natural settings, animals don't have a choice or voice on the matter, they have to deal with our intrusions and overdevelopment.

    The last place I lived was right outside of a National Park, where inevitably every year there were deaths to great species of Black and Brown bears, Foxes, Cougars, etc.... And then the idiot powers that be were poisoning lakes to kill off a certain species of fish they felt had overgrown, and looking to inject the local deer population with birth control. To me, part of being a Divine African is the awareness and cognizance that All is One, that everything on this planet from wildlife, to rainforest is a part of what I am.

    I haven't seen this show Animal Cops, i don't have cable and probably never will. But i do know that there are definite differences amongst people in regards to animals and that there isn't a uniformity in regards to race.

    The Caucasians and some Asians who run the fur trades are viscious and barbaric in their treatment of these animals. Much of the livestock raised for food is treated so inhumanely it makes one ill to watch it. In older African and Aboriginal traditions, animals are sacrificed but treated humanely, they are not allowed to suffer, which to me shows a greater respect than how the meat industry currently runs.

    In terms of domestic animals, I don't think everyone has to have the same cause and the same priorities. Just because someone speaks out for a beaten dog, horse or other pet, doesn't mean they have to join a protest for a beaten Black, Latino or other hueman being. We are all here to do and perform different visions and have different matters close to our hearts. You pick yours and allow others their quests.

    Peace.

    and don't forget the stars, suns, comets, nebulae, "extraterrestrials". All is One; Created of, for and by the Creator.

    always so full of Wisdom. Thank You.

    (prolly not exactly "on topic", but, "topical" nonetheless.)

    So you are telling an animal is equal to a human?

    Go walk near a corcodile,hippotomous,lion,bear,cobra,moose,or bengal and see how "equal" they see you. They will see you as lunch!

    African people have long been hunters,part of warrior training in some tribes,at least what I have seen on t.v. is to kill a lion. Why? because one day a young warrior may have to. Animals also have fur that helped protect our early ancestors against the cold. I am a former Vegan,but for health reasons not cause my love for animals.

    Don't get me wrong,I like animals,they are fury and loveable,but I am not worried about their plight,they are expendable.

    Oh yeah bout those dogs your in tuned with,go to Afrika,or Australia and walk next to a pack of hungry wild dogs,or dingos. Or go to Arizona,Nevada,or California,and walk next to a hungry Cayote,or go to Alaska,or Canada and walk past a pack of wolves, and see how "in tuned" they are with you lol. They'll mall you limb from limb. No disrespect to you,but lets be realistic here.

    Peta is a bunch of insane white fools. I want some one to stand up to these idiots. In the protection of a frickin dog,they decided to attempt to tear apart a black mans life. What about Mike Vic and his family,he is filing bankruptcy now,so they would rather see a human be locked in jail,and starv then see some stupid dog hurt.

    I thought Mike Vic didn't stand up for him self,If it was me I'd tell peta to go %%%% them selves. In Asia they eat dogs,in Afrika a wild dog would eat you!

    I like animals,I wouldn't hurt one,but if it came to Fido or starvation,Fido is about to be dinner,garfield too! But this peta ad is stupid,what is really cruel is cutting of a living beings genitals,what an oxymoron from a bunch of morons. Animals have no rights,they're friggin animals. Sorry forum,this topic really urks me. I live in VA Mike Vic lives like 40 minutes from me, the peta headquarters are 15 minutes from me, Mike VIC has done alot for childrens hospitals, and after school programs and things. People I know have seen Mic Vic round town,said despite his riches and status he is totally approachable,a good guy at heart.

    He has given mass amounts of money to help PEOPLE. Now with that said ain't no body tell him to sponser an illegal activity,thats why he's in jail. But these insane,white,animal loving fools are out of control and must be stopped.

    I don't care about dogs,I care about people.

    Any body want to join my new orginoization PAP, people against peta??? Really,some one must stop these freaks from attempting to take away freedom of people,in the name of animals a g"D D,,animal lol, bunch of hippie,tree huggin,sissies thats all. That includes Russell Simmons,and Mr. Sharpton,they helped peta lynch Vic,again Vic a man who has helped HUMAN beings, in this racist common wealth we call Virginia.

    Destee as you can see, you really struck a nerve with this one lol,I mean here in VA we have a lot of Military. I have a buddy who told me how white boys in Bagdad were gunning down 12 year old non combatant kids , for fun<<<. These people are more concerned with dogs than people.

    Pets are little more than animals manipulated to entertain us humans - they are manipulated in behaviour, in genetics, in diets.. to suit us. They have been torn out of their natural environments, tamed to dumb down their natural instincts - they are enslaved. Then we project human qualities onto these animals to such an extent we equate them to having human emotions.. smh.

    They are simply good house negroes :lol:

    I like dogs - I would never (personally) mistreat an animal, domesticated or wild. I don't even squash bugs.

    But the plight of animals is directly related to the mental health of humans. And we are one sick species. We want to arrest and punish individuals who kick their dogs then turn around and grab lunch at McD who are killing cattle barbarically, destroying the environment and killing us with their junk food - and we pay them for it! :lol:

    People who advocate for animal rights but ignore the issue of animal welfare are living in la-la land, as it is too contradictory to even address seriously.

    Anyway - yes, "pets" are often treated and protected better than humans - that is clear because we CARE for them and DEFEND them before we provide care and defend our own kind - ourselves, our neighbours, our children. Why? because they lurvs us, unconditionally.. no matter what we do to them.

    I swear Rover just smiled at me ;)

    :lol:
