Re: WWE Exploits Martin Luther King Day
I'm trying to remember, did any black wrestlers do anything that show (Rock isn't black, he's Samoan, if the half black side of him had been the prominent one he wouldn't have been pushed the way he was) and yeah, Rock comparing a fake fight to the end of racial segregation was kind of poor taste.
Also Cole said WWE wouldn't be hear if it weren't for King, I find that hard to believe considering they formed, made Buddy Rogers WWE Champ and then Bruno before MLK even gave his Dream Speech. Honestly WCW would have had a harder time, they actually made a black man champion.
