This reminds me of one of my favorite hilarious nWo moments.
Shortly after the reunification, the senior members of the nWo asked Vincent to go to the ring to deliver a message to... somebody, I don't remember. The message was rather hostile, and the end result was likely to be, that person beating the hell out of Vincent.
Now Vincent, who'd suffered the "Black Dude Dies First" trope throughout his entire stint with the nWo, finally shows a little Genre Savvy. He walks over to Disco, the newest member of the Wolfpac, and tells him something like, "Big Kev wanted you to handle this personally."
So Disco goes to the ring, delivers the message, and... gets the heck beaten out of him. I seem to recall everyone else in the nWo complimenting Vincent on a job well-done.
The WWE is not trying to kayfabe you into thinking that John Cena is a black man. His gimmick is one of a rapper. Rodney Mack's gimmick is not one of kayfabe. Just because he is light-skinned that takes away from his African-American heritage?
