Sane, Asuka and Shirai can barely speak English

Not the best examples to bring up actually.

I mean IMO Miz is better than the pope ever was. Still think Brown and Jinder are garbage.

But I donít think race had anything to do with them not getting a run at the top. They just simply werenít good enough.

I don't think race was the end all be all for those guys either... well maybe. But all I'm saying is if miz and Mahal are good enough then the bar isn't set very high. Them "just not being good enough" just isn't true

The last time you saw Gail was in a battle royal where she elmiated herself. Second stint aside, Gail her first run, did win the title in her debut match. So they did at least see something in her.
Eliminated herself from a battle royale?! Ok well I guess that answers my question. Dang!

I don't doubt Gail Kim's experiences. But from what I see in today's product, wrestlers with different ethnicities are treated WAY better than they have in the past. Could there still be racism in the WWE? Possibly. But the WWE, in my opinion, has done their best to shed some of their racist ideologies (which pro wrestling in general has been built upon).

The Miz has had his moments, maybe he didnít deserve it when he got it but I wouldnít be against another Miz run at the top now.

Mahal wasnít good enough. Never has been and never will.

So Monty brown and Elijah Burke were good enough to be be world champions? In a time when The wwe title was bouncing around between Cena, Orton, Edge, Triple H, Batista. Or the world heavyweight title was bouncing between Kurt Angle, Batista, Mysterio, Booker T, Edge, Taker, etc?

About 40 seconds in, far left you'll see just go under the bottom rope and leave. She was told she was going to be eliminated within a minute but she choose to eliminate herself.

Racism, like most everything else, has layers to it
White people think that there is no nuance to racism, they don't acknowledge things like tokenism and fetishism, "oh such and such hired a black person, he can't be racist", "she only dates black men how could she possibly be racist?" Admitting racism is more than just putting on white hoods and burning crosses risks admitting that anyone could be racist.

New York just made it illegal to discriminate against people for wearing ethnic hairstyles because black hair was considered unkempt or distracting. If you fired someone for wearing an afro white people would say "well they're not a racist because they hired a black person in the first place" or they would say "it's not racist because you need to be presentable at work" not realizing that finding black culture inherently unpresentable is racist in and of itself.

But yeah it's POC's fault racism exists, if we just stop talking about it racists will give up their deeply held beliefs and institutions, but we'd rather just play the victim card instead of making progress.

Shilling for Xia Li, Aliyah, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley

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 hate the victim mentality but sometimes you have to call a spade a spade. He may be changing his ways but it took how long to have a Black WWE Champion? He could've pulled the trigger with Mark Henry, Lashley in 07, plenty of others that were over. Not to mention the stereotypical gimmicks like Crime Time, R Truth being an imbecile, etc.
