I'm quite sure that EVERYONE has heard about the racism of Mr. Michael Richards...Kramer from Seinfeld. This has to be the second most disgusting thing that I've heard/read since my last post about the Racist White Girl Group on the Billboard Charts (article link) ! Am I in the dark here, or is racism still prominent in our world? In the eyes of the Racist White Girl Group and Michael Richards...YES!!!

It is so sad how something so old and done can be reawakened by a failing actor and sorry comedian. Comedians have to know...coming into the field of comedy...that you're not going to be funny to everyone, and that you're gonna get heckled. It comes with the territory.

As a professional, you should be able to acknowledge the heckler, make a joke about him or her, then continue with your act. You are NOT supposed to lash out at the heckler with racial slurs! What is wrong with you!!!? Are you such a loser that because your act sucks, and everyone came to see "Kramer" as opposed to Michael Richards, that you have to result to calling Black men "Niggers" and Latinos "Wet-Backs",etc.?

His actions are totally disgraceful, and he should be banned from t.v....PERIOD! In a moment of rage, and embarrassment, he has just destroyed his career and put the reputations of his close friends on the line. You know the old saying. 'birds of a feather, flock together'. Now, everyone is gonna start looking at Seinfeld and the cast of the show...and all of his friends kinda sideways.

If you are at all unfamiliar with what took place, this past Sat...or Sunday night at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood, Ca. (I think), Michael Richards (Kramer from Seinfeld) was on stage performing his weak comedy act. An African American heckler in the audience was giving him trouble because of his tired act, when Richards lost his composure, (and his mind) and started calling the heckler a 'Nigger' and said racist statements like...'you can't talk like this to a white man'....and 'if I had it my way, you'd be hanging from a tree, with a pitch-fork in your ass!' That is absolutely disgusting, and totally immoral!! If he is EVER hired for another t.v. show or movie, that should immediately let you know where the hiree stands. He/she may be a racist as well. It's so sad, yet so true.

As a black man, I am totally offended, and just as upset when I posted the article about the Racist White Girl Music Group. When is it all going to stop!? Does anyone have an answer?

You can see the video at www.tmz.com or by going to www.youtube.com and typing in Michael Richards in the search box.

Ahmed, as long as there are people in the world out for selfish gain, lovers of pleasures, unthankful, disloyal, having a form of godly devotion but proving false to it's power, there will be racism, disrespect for parents, murders, etc, etc. Don't get me started. (smile)

What the hell's bells?!

It seems like he tried making the situation so outrageous that it was funny. Like sometimes how comedians will say something blatantly racist/sexist just because they know people will be like "Umm... haha, what?!" Then they smile and are like "Haha, gotcha!" Shit like that. But he FOR SURE lost his damn mind somewhere in the process!!!!

All i have to say is if i was up in that crowd, "kramer's" punk ass would have never made it off the stage without catching a massive beat down to the tenth power...that's my word!!

I know what you mean. People often try to make light of what they did wrong. There's no joking your way out of this one this time. What he said was no joke, and it was deep inside who he really is. I never talk about other races in a negative way, so if I'm mad, it won't come out of me, but with 'Kramer', those feelings were already in him. No amount of anger can bring that out of you, if it's not already in you...you know what I mean?

I saw some of the apology video, but that was only because he knew he ruined his career. That apology was hollow, and I don't accept it. I'm quite sure he's been talking like this for years behind closed doors. It just caught up with him this time.

I'm with you ALL DAY!!! There's no way I would have been just sitting there listening to that, and just talking trash. I would have ended up throwing something at him at the least!
