There has been an increased focus in recent years on the equality of everyone and the dismantling of prejudices as a whole. Despite this, racism, nationalism, and hatred still remain one of the biggest problems in the world today.
A good example of this is D-Von Dudley, who revealed on "Good Karma Wrestling" that several WWE executives openly told him that they don't like him because he is black.
“I remember coming into certain locker rooms and there were certain people that didn’t care if it got out how they were treating you.
There was a prominent figure in WWE, I should say that he was office, that basically told me that he didn’t like me because I was black. Two occasions he told me. Bubba was there on one of them and Bubba was there on the second one along with Paul Heyman, Tommy Dreamer, and Spike.
To this day, I have no respect nor do I like this individual. I’m not going to go and put him on blast right now but I don’t care for him, so I just stay away from him. ”- he said, as quoted by pwmania.com!
Regardless of everything, this great wrestler went bravely through his career and did not let such things affect him. He built a great career, left a big mark on the wrestling scene, and became a wrestler that many appreciate and respect today.
“I just know that we have come a long way. I’m not going to sit here and cry over something that might have happened 10 years ago. I just move on and make the best of it. Look at my career, I have nothing to be sad about. I have nothing to have any remorse about it. Bubba and I have become the greatest tag team of our era”.
