Yeah, that could also be the case.

Now what I find even more strange is that he didn't even think anything of it. It was part of the culture where Vick came from, it was something everyone did, and he grew up doing it. He wasn't aware of the extreme social stigma associated with what he was doing, and I find that very disturbing.
