Best alliance race for tanking?

Warrior
I know the racial don't make much of a difference. But who looks the best charging or in the warrior armor?
Night elf by far.
2% chance for an enemy to miss is awesome for PvE tanks.
Night Elves look great in plate, as do Worgen.
Yeah but do night elves look good in the armor?
Dwarfs. Stone skin is a good racial. Nelfs aren't good at all for warriors.

Not good for PROT warriors? 2% no diminishing returns avoidance is kind of a big deal. Like almost OLD prenerf tauren endurance racial big deal.

Imagine if you will, some random Horde, assuming you're squishy because you are small.

I made a gnome warrior named bumrush as a spoof but I couldn't level it as it is hard for me to take gnomes seriously.
Once you get past the overwhelming cuteness, you discover a love for them. Trust me. Or don't More skullsmashing for me! :D
Orc
Just pick whatever appeals to you appearance wise. Unless you are into bleeding edge content, your not going to see a significant difference in your dps/tanking due to racials alone.

People would play wooden blocks if they heard it gave them a advantage due to herd mentality.

Good idea, I'll have to remember that :)

I do like the extra 2% avoidance night elf racial for tanking.

EDIT: probably should've posted on my warrior, but at the same time I mostly play fury on him and this is my (still leveling) tanking toon.
Gnome.
Night elf is the best pve tank class on the alliance side, while dwarf takes 2nd place. for dk and warrior or druid; Night elf. for pally dwarf.
Why, Orc of course
