Am I the only one who finds this disturbing?

I was at this year’s Inauguration, and I saw every incarnation of Barack Obama paraphernalia. Posters, t-shirts, baseball caps, even action figures. But something about THIS seems wrong. How you gon’ completely remove Malcolm X’s face?


About RtG

Rakia the Great, or RtG, is a publishing geek and sometimes literary snob. She's stumbling her way towards personal fulfillment and world domination by, oh, I dunno, writing this blog. Most days she's living her dream as a fancy schmancy editor. But not, like, today.
