Who ARE these people?

I need some advice from someone with more Google-fu than I have to help me finally kill an old email account that has become almost nothing but a spam collector.  To summarize, like many people, I had AOL service back in the day. Then I downgraded it gradually until it was nothing but a free email account that I used for non-fun, work and household business-related crap. I would have gotten rid of even that ages ago, but I made the mistake of using it as my email address when I started my Blogger account a couple years ago. I could drop it and reroute the two or three legitimate correspondences that still come to the AOL box to my mbrane Gmail box, but Google inexplicably says that I cannot use a gmail account as the email account for Blogger? WTF? Blogger is a Google product. I can't use a gmail account for a g-product?  It makes no sense but I cannot find a way around it. They stymie me every time.

What is driving to me distraction is this fucking picture of these fucking douchebags that arrives in at least three spams every day on that AOL account not matter how many times I unsubscribe or forward it to AOL's abuse address:

I know it's nuts to be so enraged about it, but it makes me so crazy to see it every day that is has developed into a personal fantasy vendetta against the actual people in that picture. Why do they look like that? Why are they standing that way (especially the chicks at either end of the pic)? AND WHY ARE THEY ALL WHITE!? This Canterbury thing claims to be some kind of big-time professional leaders organization. Get some brown and black people in there then. Now. 

The only way that I will ever be free of seeing a pic of this octet of douchebaggery is if I can kill my ties to AOL, and the only way I can do that is if Blogger will accept a replacement main account address. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope!
