We shouldn't disrespect MLK with a Obama avatar.
I don't think it's disrespectful at all. I doubt many rational human beings actually do.

Growing up black/white/Spanish in a small town that was 99.9% white...it was rough at times because all I wanted to do was fit in with everyone else and have blue eyes and blonde hair.

Then in 3rd grade we were introduced to MLK Jr. in class and I made my mom go out and buy me his biography (kiddie version of course), all those aforementioned wants were forgotten.

Now I wear my hair with its natural curl and can't imagine not being the "black" girl at the shows I go to, even though I am really happy to see more and more a variety in the color palette at Warped nowadays than when I first started going to shows.

i am reminded of the year my dining hall served fried chicken, collard greens, and watermelon on this day. not the greatest moment for my university.

As disrespectful as that is, I personally would have been stoked. That sounds delicious.

I started a version of APnet when I was around 15. I'm 28 now. And we definitely had ~8 years of Bush being the icon, and at least ~4 of Obama.
Wow, I had no idea this site was that old. Wiki tells me AP started in 2000, that's crazy.

I think that's when I actually bought the dot net domain name and made it about a lot of different bands and not just 4 or 5.

absolutepunk.8m.com I think was one of the original places, and then absolutepunk.dhs.org or something ...
