and other non-news, non-political entities actually admire Dr. King?

I mean, in Vince's case I am sure it gives him the right to have Cryme
Time, Hard-headed African Americans like JYD, and Sama Simba...

Or is it something just to keep Jessie Jackson off their ass for
another year.

Vince is a trailer trash kid who grew up in pre-civil rights South.  The
first African-American man he probably met was one of the Marine officers
stationed in the nearby base that the local gang of white kids used to mess
with.  That had to have left an impression on him.  But, as far as his
opinion of Martin Luther King, I think Vince respects what he accomplished
simply from the point of view of one guy that admires guts and determination
in others.  Admire is probably too strong a word, but Vince on some level
respects him, IMO.
