I get your point. I too would wear a headdress and the whole nine yards if it meant good money.

I'm sure they all had their own reasons and aren't inherently bad for 'accepting' it. They all 'accept' it, but the reasons for it may be different.































-They might have not thought of their gimmicks aren't racist/stereotypical.















-They might just think it's harmless entertainment that didn't hint any serious racist points.















-They might acknowledge it and look the other way for the sake of having their job.































(Of course this is all just speculation.)































Who is to blame? How should we blame in this situation? Let's suppose the company is the one that comes up with the gimmick, they are responsible to an extent. But at the same time the wrestler who knowingly accepts it is still responsible for letting it happen. It's pointless to say who is more to blame, some wrestlers need their jobs and feel that they're justified.































Perhaps neither can ultimately be morally responsible. We hold ourselves morally responsible based on our actions. Our actions are a function of how one is like, which means we would have to be responsible for our actions. But if this is so, we would have to be responsible for how we are which is impossible because humans are not self-caused. Although this seems like an interesting theory, it does us very little use in practicality. So I don't know.

Because they were paid a butt load of money.















And it could look weird if Yoshi Tatsu played Ministry of Darkness or The Straight Edge Society.
