Common pit bull argument Shriek Racisim – Pit bulls are Blacks and BSL is the KKK

This saddens me. I volunteered at a shelter just outside Denver. Being just outside Denver, a lot of pits were dumped there just to save their lives. Some of the sweetest dogs I have ever met were pits. If you changed the word “pit” to “blacks” in this discussion it would probably sound like a KKK meeting between a bunch of southern rednecks in the 60’s. It’s too bad we can’t judge each dog individually, based on the content of its character.

What an incredibly stupid comment. Dog breeds have nothing in common with human race. Dog breeds are types of dogs created, through centuries of careful and selective breeding, to have very specific inherent traits and characteristics to perform certain jobs and tasks. The traits that were beneficial to the job were accentuated and improved on while the traits not suitable to the tasks were bred out. This is why hunters use hunting dogs – and even in that grouping, there are subsets of task specific breeds. A duck hunter in Novia Scotia isn’t going to use an Irish Setter and a bird hunter in North Carolina isn’t going to use an Afghan Hound. Neither hunter is going to use a Bovier des Flanders. A stock rancher isn’t going to use a German Shorthair to round up the cattle; he will use a dog breed created for the purpose – perhaps a Border Collie or Australian Cattle Dog. If a rancher needs a dog(s) for guarding his stock at night, he isn’t going to use either of those breeds, but instead a breed created for that job, such as a Great Pyrenees or Anatolian Shepherd. Have you ever considered why police military forces aren’t using Sheepdogs or Borzois as their K9 units? Do you understand why they use the breeds specifically suited to their purpose?

To compare dog breeds to human race is either the ultimate in stupidity, or just a desperate attempt to evoke emotions from those who lack critical thinking skills and the most basic of dog knowledge.
