Why the need to yell when you don't have the facts? Why the need to worry what others might be doing or who they might be speaking with? Why the desire to be the greyhound event wrangler, keeping people separated?
Well if I’m a bad person for speaking with others then I wear that badge with pride!
I’ve spoken about the sins of “humane advocate protectors” in the past, but since there are Internet talking heads who present themselves as so righteous, now might be a good time to remind those who consider themselves to be pro-racing that the pro-racing side needs to cleanse its ranks of those who advocate violence, slander & cyber bullying. When the pro-racing side has individuals trashing adoption group booths, looking to slash tires of people they do not agree with and dictating who can talk to whom then the pro-racing side is no better than the “humane advocate protectors".
What am I?
Be not afraid to attend a greyhound event. Meet and speak to others. You may not agree with everyone you meet or everything you hear, but you will learn and grow. And hopefully you will always remember to do what is in your heart as well as your head regarding the ex-racing greyhound based on your own experiences and not be an Internet minion.
