I just watched Dawg Fight, a documentary about backyard fighting in Florida ghettos. This "league" encourages young African American men to settle their fights in the ring rather than through drive by shootings. And they can make money doing it, just like "real" boxers and MLA fighters.
(MATURE LANGUAGE AND CONTENT WARNING:)
Of course, the authorities want to shut it down. But the laws against fighting that they're enforcing were written by and for middle class white people. They don't reflect the deadly reality of life in much of black America.
We need more flexibility in how we enforce other laws, too, like age of consent and "sex offender" rules.
Should teenagers really be branded as "sex offenders" for life for having consensual sex with each other?
Is a teenage boy being seduced by a female teacher really the same as a male teacher raping a female student?
I'm all for equality under the law, but we need some discretion and flexibility, too. Blacks are different than whites. Gays are different than straights. And men are different than women.
