In the South, torture of humans was ALSO not that unusual - but that doesn't make it right.

Whoopi is ugly and Michael Vick should go to jail for 20 years. Roger Goodell scalps tickets and has no bussiness judging anyone. Check out what Goodell does to loyal fans:

Whoopi does not know what she is talking about. She acts like dog fighting is an everyday thing in the south so it is okay for Vick to be involved in it. Well I was born and raised in the south, and have lived in the south all my life. I am a few years older than Vick, and I have never been to a dog fight. I don't know anyone who has ever been to a dog fight. I guess if we follow what Whoopi is advocating, the kids who grow up in crack infested neighborhoods should be allowed to use the defense when arrested for selling drugs, "well it is accepted where I grew up", so there is nothing wrong with it. That is a BS excuse

whoppi is putting her foot in the mouth. whoppi is not puertorican and they do cockfighting in Cambodia too.But that's irrelevant, it's not cultural but only a sicko state of mind can enjoy that activity.

I guess the fact that lynchings in the old South was acceptable to some, that Whoopi would be okay with that too. What a moron.

They used to have cockfighting in Louisiana. I lived in Abbeyville (southern La) for a couple of years and I would hear it every frigin week. God created some creatures for us to either eat or become our companions. Animals eat other animals because it is in their nature. His plan was not for us to indulge in such inhumane events! You are correct by saying only a sicko state of mind can enjoy that activity.

On a lighter note..CONGRATS TO MR. TIM BURTON!! A BRILLIANT director,,he deserves all the happiness his heart desires.

How dare Whoopi Goldberg make the comment that dogfighting is no unusual in the south. Let me tell you something. I am from the south and have lived here all my life. Dogfighting is unusual. I have never known anyone who took part in dogfighting.

I am so tired of people talking down about the south. Maybe some of these people should spend some time down here in this wonderful area of the country.

The View goes from bad to worse. Why not just put Whoopi and Rosie in an arena and let people bet on that fight!

Whoopi Goldberg is from New York City so how in the world does she know what is usual or unusual for the South????

Maybe she should quit speaking of things she knows not!!!!

I have lived in the South my entire life and have never, never been to a dogfight. I have never known anyone who participated in such a reprehensible thing either. In fact when something of this nature would come up in the news (rarely) the people of the south would be absolutely outraged. Just as they are now regarding the Michael Vick case.

Oh and Ms Goldberg, just because crime is practiced in a habitual manner does not make it right, usual, or accepted.

I am so sick and tired of people from New York and other parts of the country putting the south down. I have heard of this dogfighting practice taking place in other parts of the country as well. We southerners were disgusted then too.

Well, she would be the expert on this topic since she is a stupid "female-dog." Or more befitting would be the phrase "nappy-headded-h0e"

I lived in the South my whole life and I know of no one who is involved in dog fighting, however the KKK was a southern thing I guess all those hooded idiots should be excused because it was part of their culture. NOT!

JESUS, MAN YOU PEOPLE STILL ON MICHAEL VICK? THE MAN PLED GUILTY FOR HIS CRIMES AND HE'S GOING TO BE PUNISHED FOR IT. MOVE ON WITH YOUR PATHETIC, JUDGMENTAL LIVES ALREADY. AND GO FIND SOMETHING ELSE TO GRIPE ABOUT. THE FUNNY THING IS I DIDNíT SEE THIS MANY PEOPLE BECOMING THIS OUTRAGED OVER THAT EMPLOYEE FROM DISNEY MGM WHO WAS CAUGHT WITH CHILD PORNOGRAPHY SOME WEEKS AGO. NOT ONE OF YOU WITH ALL YOUR SELF RIGHTEOUS CRAP HAVE DONE ANYTHING TO HELP THOSE PIT BULLS OR ANY OTHER ABUSED ANIMAL FOR THAT MATTER. PETA HAVE YOU PEOPLE BELIEVING THAT THEIR INTENTIONS TOWARDS ABUSED AND NEGLECTED ANIMALS ARE NOBLE. YET, I DONíT SEE THEM HAVING PRESS CONFERENCES ATTACKING ESTEE LAUDER AND OTHER COSMETIC GIANTS WHO HAVE A KNOWN HISTORY OF PERFORMING HEINOUS TESTING ON ANIMALS ALL FOR A PROFIT. AND IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH SOMEONEíS OPINION IN SUPPORT OF VICK THEN DONíT LISTEN TO IT. CHANGE THE CHANNEL. BUT ITíS OBVIOUS THAT MOST OF YOU ARE WAY TOO PETTY AND STUPID TO REALIZE THAT.

There are STILL cannibals in Borneo that kill and EAT people. That's a cultural "thing" as well. Is it acceptable behavior for civilized people?

Me neither. I've lived in Florida, Georgia and Virginia. Never heard nor saw an iota about dog-fighting. Apparently, dog-fighting is the best-kept "cultural" secret in the south.

You DUMB-SKI! First off-TURN OFF THE CAPS LOCK!

Secondly, PETA does INDEED work against organizations such as Estee Lauder or Iams who perform testing on animals.
