This week's episode of the B+ Player podcast is all about racism in professional wrestling. Hulk Hogan was recently recorded saying some very derogatory things about African Americans, but this is far from the first time a wrestler has been racist. From what goes on behind the scenes to what we see in front of the camera, prominent promotions such as the WWE have a long history of stereotypical booking. We're talking about offensive characters, prejudice promoters, and some of the most outlandish segments you've ever seen. Lots of sound clips and YouTubing on this episode! You won't be disappointed.

Our guest this week is James Thorpey - the host of "It's Still REEL to Me," available for download at Cheap-Heat.com and through B+ Player Radio. The first episode featured the founder of the B+ Players, Mark Haggerty, and the Roddy Piper classic film "Hell Comes to Frogtown." Next week James has Gary Mastriano, also of the B+ Players and the popular SKA band the Backyard Superheroes. James and Gary will be talking about Triple H in "The Chaperone."

We'll be back later this week with "The Outsiders' Edge" and a full review of ROH Death Before Dishonor, the G1 Climax current standings, plus our thoughts on the current events in this insanely intricate industry.
