    Time marches on, as do the legions of jackbooted bigots who refuse to recognize the contributions that those of African descent have made to the majesty and grandeur of The Sport of Professional Wrestling. Larry Inc. will not be counted amongst the merchants of hate. The most powerful organization in history is proud to recognize:

    Sister Sherri began her career in 1994 as the mentor and catalyst behind the most dominant black tag team of all time Harlem Heat. Navigating the politics of the overtly racist Turner Broadcasting Company as well as outright discrimination at the hands of the notoriously predjudiced booker Eric Bischoff, Sherri was able to lead her charges to seven World Tag Team Championships.

    In 1996, Bill Apter, publisher of the famed abolitionist journal Pro Wrestling Illustrated named Harlem Heat "Tag Team of the Year" over the objections of establishment Caucasians who had previously rigged the voting to favor white teams such as The Beverly Brothers and Power and Glory.

    The glory of this accomplishment was short lived, as the apartheid leaders of the wrestling world conspired to blackball Sherri from the industry. Unable to gain bookings and fearing for her life, Sherri fled on the Underground Railroad to Canada and effectively ended her career in exile.

    Sister Sherri currently resides on Dead Wrestler Beach with fellow Bantu warriors Junkyard Dog, Mabel and Beetlejuice.

    Hated her back in the day, but now realize what a smoking hot body she had. Definitely at least a single bagger though.

    If her genetics were any indication I think we would be derelict in ruling out hypertension and diabeetus as contributing factors.

    No less an authority than the legendary Lou Thesz has proclaimed the greatness of Luther Lindsey (born Luther Jacob Goodall). In his book Hooker (available on Amazon.com), Lou says the following:

    “[Lindsey was] without question, the best black wrestler ever. Luther had a fantastic body and limitless energy to compliment his skill. Like many other industries, wrestling was not open to African-American wrestlers during his career, so it was an amazing accomplishment for Luther to even learn his craft. His place in history is not because he was black; it is in spite of the fact he was black.”

    Just like countless black baseball players of his era, Lindsey was relegated to wrestling black opponents, and competing for “Negro” championship titles in many areas. Lindsey once claimed to have known Shag Thomas better than any other competitor, because in many territories, the two men had to wrestle each other because they were both black.

    But in the territories where Lindsey was allowed to compete on the same level as the main event white wrestlers – such as Stampede in Calgary, Hawaii, or the Pacific Northwest – he fast became a major star. Lindsey wrestled Thesz to time limit draws for the world championship many times.

    Lindsey was a four-time Pacific Northwest Heavyweight Champion between 1961 and 1969, and held the tag team titles on eight different occasions – four with Shag Thomas, and once each with George Dussette, Bing Ki Lee, Herb Freeman and Pepper Martin. Lindsey also counts the Hawaiian Heavyweight and Tag Team Championship (with Bobby Bruns) among his prizes. On a tour of Japan in 1962, he scored the All Asia Tag Team Titles (with Ricky Waldo) with a win over Rikidozan and Toyonobori in Tokyo. Besides Thesz, Lindsey’s many opponents included fellow legends “Iron” Mike DiBiase, Bronko Nagurski, Kurt Von Poppenheim, Buddy Colt and Mad Dog Vachon.

    Stu Hart shared Lou Thesz’ high opinion of Lindsey, who was one of the first black superstars for Hart’s Stampede. In 1967, a match between Luther Lindsey and future WWF Champion Stan Stasiak (with boxing great “Jersey” Joe Wolcott as special referee) drew the largest wrestling crowd in Calgary’s history up to that point.

    Tragically, Luther Lindsey died after a match on February 21, 1972, due to heart failure. He was 48.

    Luther Lindsey was an Uncle Tom and Lou Thesz was his mammie.
