On this Fat Tuesday, Larry Inc. would be remiss if we did not comment on the genocide that is being foisted upon the black in this country in the form of hypertension and diabetes. Diseases created by eugenicist whites who seek to eradicate the African culture in advancement of their own bigoted social agenda. There is no racism in Larry Inc. We value all who triumph over adversity and excel above their peers. Today's honoree is no exception: With a flair for showmanship and an athleticism that was without peer, Johnny B. Badd overcame all obstacles to become the picture and vision of Nubian masculinity. Badd burst upon the wrestling scene in 1991, unable to be held down by bigoted promoters and outdated social constructs dictating that the black man be put "in his place". Badd was victorious over all challengers while revolutionizing the role of the strong black man in professional wrestling. Before Badd, the black was portrayed in the most negative of lights, being forced to adhere to the most offensive of stereotypes as savages or as prancing minstrals. JBB instead showed the black as the picture of rugged masculinity and strength. Badd ascended to the highest of heights, becoming the first black man of the 1990's to capture the World Television Championship. Badd retired from the squared circle in 1996 and has chosen to fill his days with a variety of manly vocations, rotating between police officer, construction worker, cowboy, and leather goods fabricator. Badd is also an accomplished musician.
