Ehhhhh, I guess this means we’ve finally reached racial harmony when capitalism will try to thoughtlessly gobble up anybody’s legacy?

If you’ll notice the advertisement above, a Laguna Beach surf shop had a Martin Luther King Jr. Day sale where everything black was 20% off. Now it’s okay to sell stupid crap on Washington/Lincoln’s birthdays because, hey, who the fuck knows who those guys were, but MLK? And everything black? Something tells me having your head slammed into sand over and over again as you surf does not breed the most attuned sense of racial awareness.

I also think it’s pretty darn funny that the name of the sale is “Respect” as the promotion itself is pretty crude.

Perhaps were MLK French (“I have a dream zat my four leettle cheeldren will one day leeve in a nation where zey are guaranteed 7 weeks paid vacation!) and wearing all black anyway, this wouldn’t have been so ill-advised. See this is why they need more Black people in surfing….
