Hilarious character from the hit sitcom "Seinfeld". The actor is better known as Michael Richards, the guy who completely lost whatever respect he may have had because he spewed horrible racist garbage after being heckled by black audiences. Michael handled the situation poorly as comedian. A good comedian will know how to shut up hecklers and make it funny for everyone.
Michael acknowledges that what he said was wrong and if anyone saw his apology video on Letterman, you could see that he was sincere in his apology and is most definately not racist. We all have the potential to let our emotions get to us and even spew out garbage like what Richards said at the laugh factory under certain circumstances even though we may not mean it.
With that being said, this whole issue has brought up a slew of idiots. First are the closet-racists who are saying Richards had the right to call them "niggers" because he was being heckled and called cracker (even though the "victims" called him that after the tirade). Nigger is a derogatory term that goes back in the slavery days although today can be taken as other meanings. Despite this fact, it was clear that the way Richard's used it was in a derogatory sense. The second group of idiots this has brought up is Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. It's not bad enough they called for a boycott on the new Seinfeld DVD but also to sop using the word "nigger" altogether?? These are the kind of people increasing racial tension in our society and what's more sickening is that some people actually follow these guys as if they're Malcolm X or Martin Luther King.
-Whoever thinks nigger is the same as cracker is fucking moron
-Whoever supports Michael's tirade despite the fact of how he said he should have never used it is a fucking moron
-Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are fucking morons
-The victims wanting money are fucking morons
-Michael Richard's was a fucking moron for saying that shit but at least he knows it's wrong
Buy the Seinfeld DVD, don't let fucking morons ruin the sales of one of the best sitcoms ever. Kramer is the best character in Seinfeld!
