Kamala Speaks

Any fan of classic pro wrestling knows Kamala. He was a beast! Kamala, known as "The Ugandan Giant", was a WWE pro-wrestler who fought against the likes of Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior, Andre The Giant, and (my favorite) Jake "The Snake" Roberts.

You might not know too much about Kamala - like what is voice sounds like - because throughout his career, Kamala remained silent, aside from some frightening grunting. This trait helped scare children by making his personal more realistic, but it was a conscious decision to disguise the fact that this "Ugandan Giant" was born James Harris and grew up in a segregated Mississippi town in a sharecropper’s family.

Kamala's strength comes not from his body, but in his ability to endure. He faced racism, violence, and recently the loss of both legs to diabetes.
