Default Charles Wright . . black wrestler who filled every black cliche


https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_...her_(wrestler)

- - -

I think I found him . . The black man who left out no 'black cliche' . .

Charles Wright is a wrestler . . We know that wrestling is fake and that people have 'gimmicks' but this guy , I think , stood for everything 'black' . .

In the long run , he had three gimmicks during his career . .

Voodoo-priest 'Papa Shango' . .


. . 'Kama' ..


. . 'The Godfather' . .


- - - -

. . from 'pagan African' to street-thug to gold-chained pimp . .

. . the guy left out no black 'cliche' . .

Hmmmm . .

. . intentional . .?

Did the wrestling 'image-makers' voluntarily send him through all 'African-American' cliches /stereotypes?

I've never seen such a 'figurehead' for blacks . .

Some savage Voodoo-adherent , some black street-punk/thug , some 'ghetto-pimp' . .

It was easy to figure out though by his tattoos though that it was all the same person . .

Crazy . .

And amusing at the same time . .

Gotta say . . I sometimes find the 'identity crisis' of the American groid most amusing . .

From 'blues playin' homeless folks' . .





. . to the 'Jazz'-gimmick of the 1920s . .


. . to the 'Rock 'n Rollahs' of the 50s . .


. . to the 'funk / soul brothas' of the 1970s . .




. . do not forget that 'playa'-image of the 90's . . .

So called 'Pro' wrestling is entirely caricature.
