– Kofi Kingston recently spoke with IndyWeek.com to promote Friday’s WWE live event in Raleigh. He talked about WWE’s lack of black champions:

“People always say, ‘Oh, there haven’t been many black champions,’ but on the other hand, there are a whole lot of white people that never won a belt either. These days, I think it’s less of a racial thing. I honestly believe that if you are able to entertain and interact with the crowd, it doesn’t matter what ethnicity you may be. [WWE] will reward you.”

    Sure haven’t been a lot of Mexicans or Asians either.

    But no one interviews tatsu about that

    There have been a lot of black champions…just not world champions. Of COURSE it’s a racial thing, but he’s not gonna say it, obviously.

    Sandow is proof that being able to entertain people doesn’t matter, it’s all about your look.
