After booting Hulk Hogan from its Hall of Fame for using the N-word on tape just three years ago, the WWE said in a statement that its decided to reinstate the wrestler because they felt his “numerous public apologies” were sufficient. Black WWE stars feel otherwise, however.
WWE’s Mark Henry tells TMZ there’s a “50-50” split among Black wrestlers. “I’ve talked to guys that were like, ‘Man, the hell with him,'” he said… but he’s not one of them. In fact, he thinks Hogan’s apologies have been sincere.

Yasiin Bey Is Opening a Gallery in the Bronx.
It’s a meeting of hip-hop and fine art, Okayplayer reports. It’s called The Compound, it’s a collab with advertising executive Free Richardson, and “will serve as a space for all mediums of art,” Bey told artnet News. “Free will run day-to-day operations alongside staff and I will bring in curatorial and special projects.”
“For me everything is art,” Richardson added. “What often happens is that certain artists don’t get a fair chance, and a lot of galleries don’t accept certain artists. The whole blue-chip world isn’t fair because certain artists that are just as good will never be accepted.”
