ESPN Envisions a White Michael Vick [PICTURE]

ESPN makes Michael Vick white

ESPN The Magazine has dedicated its entire football preview issue to controversial QB Michael Vick, including a feature which poses the question, “What if Michael Vick were white?

It’s complicated, concludes the thought piece’s author, Touré. What’s also complicated is the status of the article’s photo — a digital rendering of Vick as a white man — on ESPN’s website.

ESPN switched the picture out earlier today, perhaps because Touré took to Twitter and labeled it “inflammatory.” But as of right now, ESPN has decided to own up to their computer-generated white face, and caucasian Michael Vick is back on the site. What do you think?
