    Woah, woah, woah... The Junkyard dog was the height of racism in wrestling if anything. The hard head gimmick with the 3 inch skull, constantly being riddled as a idiot, all sorts of racist promos against him (Funk, Valentine, Flair etc), even a WWF commentator said he couldn't read or write.

    By allowing himself to be gimmicked in such racist fashion, if anything, he buried black wrestlers, not helped them. To this day, black wrestlers can't get over without doing a gimmick like rap, jig, or dance in the ring.


Ron Simmons would like a word (and we know what that word is)

Ron Simmons was champ, but never was over as the top guy in WCW. But the WCW sure did make sure we knew he was the first African-American champ in history. But he was a refreshing exemption to all the stereotypical black wrestling gimmicks back then. Which included "hard heads", african savages, witch doctors, rappers, etc.

Shelton Benjamin is an example whom they didn't gimmick with the typical stereotypical crap... and he never could get over either.

...until his momma started accompanying him to ringside, right?

(Emphasis added by me) Way to blow the surprise, dude. I'm with some of the comments posted after the article and Jason Powell: This is wonderful exposure for WWE, but probably not what Mickey Rourke needs right now.
