Just when you were hoping there were no new ways to be racist, it turns out people may be racist against dogs. Black Dog Syndrome is the name shelter workers have given to the tendency of dark-furred pups to languish in kennels while their lighter-furred brethren get adopted.“The effect is very real,” says Mirah Horowitz, executive director and founder of Lucky Dog Animal Rescue. “We recently had a litter of five very cute, very fluffy puppies, two yellow and three black. And the yellow ones all went immediately, but for the black ones it took weeks.”

I would hope that one day we would adopt dogs, not by the cuteness of their gaze, but by the content of their bitness.

Black horses anyone? I love them way better than white horses. Red horses are my favorite though.

Why is everything that is black seen as a negative? Black balled black listed, black eye, beaten black and blue, dirt on the carpet left my socks black, don't wear black on a sunny hot day, don't let a black cat cross your path, don't adopt a black dog.....

Do they even care about humans being racist towards them ?

#6 Posted by pyro1245 (1075 posts) -

Dogs don't have race, they are all a sub-species of wolf. And a dog's color can't usually be used to determine the different breeds. Irrational people annoy me. What's the saying? If only closed minds came with closed mouths.

I have a black dog, but it's ok because she has a few light patches.

"black eye"

Because it's evidence that someone has suffered an injury.

"beaten black and blue"

Again, injury.

"dirt on the carpet left my socks black"

What's to like about dirt-stained socks?

"don't wear black on a sunny hot day"

That's not really negative, it's just helpful advice.

I hope that answers some of your questions

@thegerg:

"black eye"

Is a negative effect

"beaten black and blue"

Is a negative effect

"dirt on the carpet left my socks black"

Is a negative effect

"don't wear black on a sunny hot day"

BLACK clothes having a negative effect

I hope that clears up what I meant about things that are black being negative.

You asked "[w]hy is everything that is black seen as a negative?". Firstly, not everything that is black is seen as negative.

Anyway, you yourself say that the things listed here ARE negative. To answer your overly simplistic question, these things are seen as negative because they ARE negative.

@thegerg: true but it was just a joke I didn't expect to be debating it.

I should have put a "lol" at the end it would have avoided all this.

The article is not stupid at all. It's actually quite interesting and the author gives some compelling reasons why it takes longer for black dogs to get adopted. That's not to say that I'm sold on Black Dog Syndrome as they definitely need more hard data to support this theory (as the article states), but I wouldn't dismiss it in a knee jerk fashion either. I think the misguided opening sentence really turned some people off of this article, but it's clear that most people in this thread didn't read past the first paragraph.

Came here to post this. Though I disagree about it being one of their better songs. It's good, but so incredibly over-played that I can't even listen to it anymore. If I were skilled at playing guitar, I could probably play it through from memory alone.

Most of their great music never sees the light of day on radio.

Can you guys cut down on the quote chains? It's almost impossible to read a thread with quote chains over 2-3 long on a phone. All you have to do is hover over the quote box you want gone and hit "delete".

I would say we should request GS staff fix it so it automatically does it, but what good would that do?

That Director is proof of what happens when stupid people get to actually be heard.

Even actual racist and nazis don't care about black hair on a dog, its freaking hair and the most common hair amongst Doberman and Rottweilers are black/brown so this "director" needs to stop taking what ever she is taking.

Nah. I did get him some obedience training from the group that trains our police dogs, though. I would let him out and he'd run off into the woods, all well and good since we have an electric fence, but he'd take forever to come back when I called him. They fixed that. And told me to leave him out for a night if he ever did it again. Only had to leave him out once after that and he comes a running when I call for him.
