Re: Racial Gimmicks and your thoughts?
Racial/Racist gimmicks will always be a staple in pro wrestling/WWE, no matter how much the times have change. Depends how far you take it and what it's purpose is.
Like Zeb Coulter. As much as WWE tried to push the envelope, they didn't go far enough with him and Swagger when Swagger feuded with ADR for the World title. Which is why the feud was so flat by the time Wrestlemania had come about. Swagger should have been antagonizing "suspected illegal aliens". Should have used more explicit language (no profanity, of course). They attempted to cross the line but pussied out.
