I figured this is where the roadie's all hang out so even though it's not cycling specific we could show our love for Ms. Brown and post a few pix or links for which great black woman she should honor next by using her as a profile pic.

i was gonna suggest Regina Jacobs (the 40yr old track star) but while i was looking for pix i saw an article that she had tested positive for THG and was involved in some other unsavory stuff that an upstanding member of our community like KB could never condone.

i was thinking maybe tennis star and social justice icon Althea Gibson...

Holly Robinson-peete or Claire Huxtable. I know it's an example of my primitive mind, but I picture people as their avatars, and it took me awhile to figure out it was Condoleeza instead of Gollum-in-a-dress, but probability-wise, Koffee's got to be much finer!

Winnie Mandela?
You've got to be kidding. Her ex husband may garner respect
(deservedly so) but winnie is nothing more than a criminal
hanging on to a great mans coat tails.
Lets see, she thought Moketsie Stompie Seipei (14 yo boy) was
getting too popular and a police informer so she had him killed.
she has been convicted of fraud and robbery, and was very well
known for necklacing her opposition. Nice lady.
