Sometimes us AP's tend to dig beyond popular culture to find those eccentric people we feel we can relate to, but many times they are in front our face all along and didn't even realize it. Exhibit A....
All these years and I am now noticing the NBA freak of them all, Dennis Rodman was a true Afropunk with his colorful hair, tattoos, and piercings on the court in addition to his outlandish sports covers.

Myself and the rest of the AP members that came of age before the interwebs..."You are so, um, different. I've never met anyone like you..." or "We saw a Black skater/metal/punk dude at xyz show/record store/skate spot. He totally reminded me of you."
