You knew this was going to happen.

It wasn’t a matter of if, but when.  Part of the reclamation project for any entertainer is going on Oprah and crying.  Vick will go on and about half way through the show, talk about missing his kids while in prison and start balling.

Here are more details:

Michael Vick will be appearing on Oprah Winfrey’s TV show instead of the Piers Morgan show, Fox 29 has learned.

Our Jenn Frederick was talking to Dr. Lee Cohen, a podiatrist who works with Unequal Technologies, a local company that makes protective gear for Vick and DeSean Jackson from the Philadelphia Eagles.

Cohen confirmed he is part of an Oprah Winfrey show featuring Vick that will taped on February 22.

The majority of black people never felt that Vick needed to redeem himself.  I always said Michael Vick went to jail for being dumb, the act of dog fighting and gambling on dog fighting is something that is very prevelant in the black community.  Someone who had as much to lose as Michael Vick should have never been that involved in that type of activity.

That is the no one can touch me mentality of a lot of young black athletes have.

I understand that Vick has to talk about how dog fighting is wrong, but I want him to also stress the importance of weighing risk/reward in your actions.

If you work at the grocery store, I doubt the Feds care about what you do in your backyard, but when you have a lot to lose and a family to support, before you do anything, you need to think to yourself, if this all goes bad who will be the fall guy?

If Vick would have thought about that years ago, he wouldn’t have to go on Oprah now.
