My entire family is from the South and not one person that I know is, or has been, involved in dog fighting. In fact, if you watch the program "Animal Precinct" that airs on Animal Planet it appears that dog fighting is a cultural phenomenon in The Big Apple.
I respect Whoopi but this time she really should not have gone there.
