THINK BEFORE YOU BAN

Banning a breed of dog is never the answer, and frankly, it is quite irresponsible. It teaches us that abuse of animals is not the problem, but rather that the animal itself is the problem. It teaches us that respecting the animal is absurd, and that the animal must behave according to our standards without any instruction or care from us. It teaches us that racist attitudes and profiling is acceptable. It demonstrates that our State and local governments reinforce these antiquated notions that one race or one breed is inherently evil, and that it is normal to pass such judgement without critically examining the reality around us.
