Posted by Matt Boone February 12, 2014 3 Comments

WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T recently spoke to Philly.com for Black History Month. Regarding racism in wrestling, Booker T noted:

“Throughout my whole time in wrestling on the road, going out and being around some of the whitest people in the world I’ve never had any problems with anybody. It was never black or white. Booker T was just a wrestler. I did that by design.”

“When people see me come out of that curtain, it’s never been a black guy. It’s just been Booker T and I’ve always tried to make it that way.”

    I miss Booker T, his feud with the Rock was a good one.

  • Hector Naranjo

    Thats the way everyone should think rather than play victim. Very well said Booker

    Glad Booker T hasn’t had to deal with some of these racist animals out here. Being an african american male still comes with certain baggage. Even when you’re a law abiding citizen. Glad the homie Booker gets treated like a wrestler and nothing less.
