I think Vince is one of those people whose response to being racist would be “I have black friends!”

Not that the discussion doesn't need to be had, but honestly, who shit in Gail Kim's cereal? This is like the 1000th news item where she keeps throwing "racism" daggers at the WWE. Did something very bad happen to her specifically that she just refuses to talk about? Because that's more interesting and noteworthy than just saying, "They bad, they racist!"

Wrestling is a business with a history of linear and uni-dimensional characters, so it's not surprising a lot of wrestlers get stuck with their ethnicity defining their character. It does not just happen to minority wrestlers, but also to White ones. Sheamus and Finlay for example. Russian wrestlers. A few Italian wrestlers. Not to mention regional stereotypes of White Americans. Austin being a redneck, JBL being a cowboy hat wearing and beer drinking Texan in his APA days.

To be honest she always has a welcome home type fanbase in TNA/Impact where she's appreciated so that's probably good enough for her everybody doesn't care about being a megastar and are comfortable/happy with whatever loyal fans they do have that truly appreciate them for what they do.

You want it to end? Quit talking about it. Racism is only alive and well because of a few assholes and a shit ton of people trying to feed their victim mentality.

I don't think Vince is a racist.

Is he that 'old timey' kind of say whatever nonsense and "back in my day things were like this for this race"? Definitely. That doesn't mean he's a racist. He's just from a different era.

I'd agree with that. I think his sense of humour is quite juvenile and as like most men in his seventies, he's not that politically correct. I don't think he believes people from different ethnicities are inferior or actively discriminates against them.

Gail has always struck me as quite bitter about her time in the WWE. I get that , particularly as she's a talented wrestler, but I've never found her entertaining to watch in WWE or TNA. Sometimes people just don't catch on, irrelevant of ethnicity

Please provide the evidence that supports your unique, incredible insights into a man's decision process when hiring employees of color. There is literally no comeback. You are not the man's wife, therapist, or business partner, so you have no insight whatsoever into his thought process when he hires Wrestler X.

This is a key point. Do we have to go through the hundreds, nay, thousands of White former WWE wrestlers that never got a push? By the numbers, most of the wrestlers that weren't pushed in WWE were White. Does that mean Vince hates White people?

I've noticed this as well. It's important to remember that more than one thing can be true. There IS still a great deal of racism in the world AND many minorities have made things worse by always reaching to racism as a crutch and an excuse, which actually only serves to foment more racism instead of sympathy.

he cannot win with some of you people. if he gave every single title to black wrestlers you folks would STILL make it out like hes a racist, so why even bother?

His insight and thought processes have been documented and observed countless times when it comes to the wrestlers he likes and dislikes, his over emotional behavior, his inability to adapt, his anger and pettiness!

Do you even watch WWE Sports Entertainment?
