What gimmicks do you think are some of the most racist gimmicks done by the WWE?

1) The Great Khali, an Indian who can' talk but only shout... followed by a Indian who translate for him

2) Cryme Tyme, black people who steal and wear shiny crap on their teeth

3) Los Guerros, Mexicans who lie, cheat, and steal

4) Muhammad Hassan, I don't even need to say with him, he drew so much racist heat

5) Mexicools, Mexicans who ride lawnmowers to the ring

6) The Nation of Domination, a black power group who is suppose to resemble the nation of Islam?

And should the WWE do a KKK gimmick? A *********** group gimmick?

Cryme Tyme is the obvious answer. Tatanka, although he was actually Native American, was pretty stereotypical (headdress, warrior chant thing in his theme song iirc, etc). Also Hassan wasn't racist (unless you mean he was racist against Americans), as most of the things he said were complaints that many Arab-Americans actually did have.

I was going to post "In before people list any ethnic wrestler ever." but apparently I'm too late. People fling the word racist around so much it's beginning to lose all meaning. Khali? Yoshi Tatsu? Apparently just being non-white means you have a racist gimmick. I wouldn't even call Cryme Tyme particularly racist because the entire thing was clearly satirical and largely played for laughs.

Muhammad Hassan and Mr. Fuji are examples of genuine race-baiting gimmicks.

This.

Stereotyping and racism are two different things.
