MLK Hoodie - April 4th, 1968 -Nikkolas Smith by Nikkolas-Smith MLK Hoodie - April 4th, 1968 -Nikkolas Smith by Nikkolas-Smith
The Dream will never die. It is more powerful than fear or violence. It can never be swindled away or destroyed. It is one of Love, and therefore timeless. =D

This image makes me sick. There is a reason we have an MLK day and not and Al Sharpton day. This man was an inspiration to all. A symbol of peace. To see his image bastardized because they want to compare it to this media hyped travesty we call news is awful. Your drawing disrespects his work.

Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had something quite different do say about this and I believe she is right on 100%.

The number of people complaining about this image is ridiculous. They've completely missed the point. I looked at some of the profiles for the people here, and it looks like they made accounts for the sole purpose of complaining here, which is pretty pathetic. You guys need to take a step back and ask yourself why this image is so offensive. How does one article of clothing completely change MLK Jr. and insult what he stood for? He's the same person. It's not like his past or his character is changed. All that's different is the hoodie. People saw this and decided it's insulting and that he looks like a thug- that's the problem. They let one piece of clothing and all the stereotypes that come with it completely corrupt their image of a man.

Anyway, that's my 2 cents. And fuck it, I like this image. Amazing work.

If you don't think the hoodie changes things, then you are very naive.

Or I could just- you know- not share the same opinion on as you on something.
