... the other Black experience

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.

Who else can you think of?

I agree with you on Dennis Rodman. He just didn't give a what! He had a nice run of messing with people's heads during his hayday. That's when i was still heavy into the NBA and he made it more interesting for sure.

Ice T, even though a lot of the body count material was horrible. 

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."
