OMG I love it.. But he looks like a white man in my eyes.

Still he was incredibly militant. Malcolm X had extreme reverence for him.
Well his hair was straight and he was very light, and probably even lighter in person. Most black photograph darker than they really are. Our melanin is so strong it cannot be captured correctly by camera or film, love it. I remember seeing Halle Berry in person, she is a shade lighter than how she usually comes off on screen and it was summer time. My ex met Whitney up close and personal while working at Bobby's studio back in the day, when Bobby was still relevant. Of course when he told me she stopped by the studio, I had lots of questions. He said, well she is much lighter skinned in person, and like a man he said but she had a no butt, lol. I was like who cares about her butt, you met Whitney Houston. Now I am getting off the subject, but you get my example...I bet he looked even more white in person but he was all brother with his attitude.

sometimes people need a catalyst to light their life's fire

sounds like ACP's black contemporaries were one of his catalysts 

We should do this more often with black "celebs" or people will potential to make huge strides in our black struggle

Everyone on my page (both white and black) have started to look forward to it every year. I was talking to my cousin last night and next year I may try to do it on my own family.
