    what? No one said stand idly by. I think its good that you reported the ad, hopefully someone can help this horse. I think they just meant that its not necessarily people who don't know any better or "city" people. Plenty of times people just don't care... even if they've had a lot of experience with horses.

    I don't know where the reference to a "black guy" comes from- I think I can pinpoint what area of the US you are in by that remark...

    Wow, you've just opened a can of worms there... (I'm sure that's not what you meant, but wow, what a way to word it!!)

    I think you did the right thing by reporting it, nobody has said otherwise (unless it was deleted before I saw) but you really need to be careful what you say, otherwise you're going to make some people very upset.

    And just for the record, the worst abuse I've ever seen was from a country white guy who was very experienced with horses, had been raised around them. He was one of the biggest breeders/trainers in my area.

    ETA: I type so slow, love how everyone else has jumped in already XD

    I guess not but I find that sort of thing very offensive.

    And I think I could pinpoint what area you live in with that remark.

    There's racist people everywhere, it doesn't matter where you live. Criminals, racists, sexists - they're everywhere! Sure, they may be more common in the "South" but that doesn't mean she lives there.

    ETA: I meant racists are more common in the south, not criminals and stuff. Oh, and I am from Texas, pretty much as south as you can get.

    Not saying anything about racism or not, one of the pictures in the ad is a picture of himself with the horse stating his height, where, he is in fact black. So in this case, yeah, it does happen to be a black guy with a horse that doesn't appear to be properly cared for. I've seen people of all colors abuse horses though, so this is just an n=1.

    There seems to be some people who seem to think I'm a racist, okay first off just " because I stated clearly "black guy" I would do the same if it were a white guy.....I DID NOT call him a derogatory or degrading name (which I might add I know several), would it make you feel better if I said that there are a lot of crackers out there who also abuse/neglect animals? Perhaps that would be acceptable to some of you. I don't have a problem with people like Tianimalz, who buys horses and fattens them up...I am not stating that ALL black, white, indian, muslim, latino or otherwise non white person doesnt know how to care for their animals because a lot of them do. However I have a problem with ignorant people who harm animals because they have no clue how to properly succeed in their quest! I have no problem in calling people out on their ignorance be it redneck, black, injun or what ever! Not that it really matters but to quell a few people in their ignorance:

    I am not racist, I am from Hawaii, I live in Chicago where there are people of all races, nations, ethnicities and religious beliefs. I'm Native American in descent and I date a Mexican!

    Calm down :) I don't think anyone meant to jump on you, try not to be so defensive (it's hard, I know. I'm impulsive and delete a ton of would-be posts for it! ), some people were just pointing out the way you worded things could be taken wrong, I'd just nod and try my best to do better. Words have quite a tricky way of power.
