Sounds to me like the man humbled himself, admitted he made a mistake and apologized. Perhaps the Reverend should practice what he preaches. Oh, yeah, I forgot, he doesn't preach the gospel. Now, let's see, what is it this guy preaches? Anybody? <cricket>
I agree with all you guys. Of these days good old Reggies gonna try to squeeze the wrong one and get caught in a mess himself.

The REV needs everybody just to start telling to him to STUFF IT a lil more often. Ill bet $5 that Michael Richards ends up making a big fat donation to the Jesse Jackson Gang..

You know i just gotta know why didnt Jesse declare war on the word ****** or pple that take the lords name vain...he might get a little further....

Your a proven " idiot".
J.J. declared a ban on the "N" word for all Americans, this includes rappers, preachers, teachers, web bloggers, and members of all communities. Richards verbally attacked the diverse group (asian,black,white, and hispanic)of attendies because they arrived late and he felt like the were an interuption. He started with "look at that group of Black and Mexican college students coming in late". The most offensive comments were "if this were fifty years ago he would have a fork up their a*&" , "when I wake up in the morning, I'm rich, when u wake up in the morning u r still a N*#@7r". The person in the audience that yelled back and cakked him a cr#ck8r was not a part of the group. The group attended because they were big Seinfeld fans and arrived late because they were only there to see Richards.

RICHARDS IS THE REAL IDIOT.
for the record Jesse is an idiot too.

we sometimes offend others unintentionally, and have sincere regrets. I believe Richards actions were hateful, and a true expression of how he feels.

Treat others like u would want to be treated and the rewards are endless.
Anyone who uses racial slurs or expletives only succeeds in looking stupid. It reflects small brains and small vocabularies. No offense to anyone here who likes to curse, but I'm just telling you. You automatically lose respect and credibility when you use expletives and/or racial slurs. I'm not sure if it's even a conscious reaction, but it's there nonetheless.

Yeek! Editing here...no offense CG/HU. Smiler
ATTENTION HATE-MONGERS AND THOSE THAT ENJOY A LOWER STANDARD OF LIFE. WHAT THIS GUY SAID IS WRONG THERE IS NO WAY HE COULD APOLOGIZE FOR WHAT HE SAID FROM THE WAY HE SAID IT SEEMS LIKE HE HAS FELT THIS WAY FOR A LONG TIME. SEEMS LIKE THE WAY YOU GLADLY EXPRESSED YOUR OPINION ON THIS ARTICLE YOU FEEL THE SAME WAY. STILL STUCK IN THE SOUTH I GUESS. HELLO ITS 2006!! TO BE TOTAL HONEST WHAT HE SAID DOESN'T MAKE ME ANGRY I COULD CARE LESS JUST LIKE THE ARTICLES YOU ALL WROTE I COULD CARE LESS SEEMS LIKE YOUR THE ONES MAD DID SOME AFRICAN AMERICAN GET A BETTER JOB THAN YOU IS HIS HOUSE,CAR, WIFE, HUSBAND, KIDS, DOG, CAT BETTER THAN YOURS. SEEMS LIKE YOU FEEL THE SAME WAY HE DID LIKE A LOWER LIFE FORM. WELL I TREAT PEOPLE THE SAME LIKE YA'LL YOU ARE NO DIFFERENT YOU ALL ARE IDIOTS TO ME. HAVE A NICE DAY MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOU.
The fact that people would consider an apolgy for such an offense is shocking to me. This is HATE in its purest form. Micheal Richards feels like he is superior to another race that GOD created. To spew negative and hateful remarks about an entire race of people that GOD used his hands and infinate power to create is scary and absolutely ignorant. If you cant get along with your brothers and sisters on earth do you think that you will stand next to them in HEAVEN? A friend of mine posted the previous remarks and I agree with him 100%. There may be jealousy or stupidity involved in this, either way its wrong. I forgive if it is asked because its the right thing to do. But forgive and forget are two different things. I will not purchase Sienfeld merchandise any longer. If you feel that you can call someone the "N" word and not be racist then you need to question yourself. Why would you use a word with such pain and blood attatched to it towards another person. If Jesus were standing at your door today with black skin.....would you still have the same argument?
Until bgabe9 shared it with us, I didn't even know what Richards said. The article Brentenman referenced just said he used the N word. I had pictured hecklers getting him riled up until he said something stupid that he regretted. I still don't get JJ's involvement, but that's nothing new.

Off the subject a little, but...What shocks me is that anybody cares what this guy or any other actor/actress has to say about anything. It kills me how actors, actresses and singers are always sticking their nose in the middle of major world decisions or politics like anybody sees them as an authority on anything besides their trade. Newsflash! We don't!
It doesn't matter what the heckler's said, he shouldn't have lowered himself to that level. Again, with rights comes responsibilities. When you say something stupid, be prepared for the consequences.

Besides, he's already made his apology. If he would just shut up about it, it will blow over. He keeps making statements and holding press conferences because this is the most attention he's seen since Seinfeld ended.
Joy, you a right on about caring what entertainer say. Did you know that more people showed up in Birmingham to see to the the American Idol Taylor hicks than did people to for the pro American rally that was to support stopping the Amnesty of illegal alliens? The majority of people in this country are so glued to the IDIOT box that they have no idea whos runnig or whats going on in this country.

I seen part of the video on YOUTUBE.com. You can see hecklers shouting at him but can't make out what they are saying. I heard from someone that they were slinging racial slurs at Kramer first.

If that is so then where is the out cry for the hecklers to take theropy?

Where are you when that happens J.J. and you other

Micheal Ervin said on ESPN radio the other day that QB Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys was such a talented athlete that he must have some black people somewhere in his family. He did come back and apologize later after complaints form listeners. Had that been a white person that said that he would have been fired no matter how much he aplogized. ESPN let Rush Limbauhg go for the same kind of comment. You young new age people have been brain washed by TV the liberal left. Wake up.
Micheal Richards did not say the "N" word. Which would have been bad enough He called his guests the name. AND HE DIDNT STOP THERE He said that 50 years ago they would be hanging from trees with a pitch fork up their a**. He said they were just N*****. If you watch the video he was angry, he was screaming with such hate. "From the Heart the Mouth Speaks" ............ Your absolutely on another planet than I. It is like trying to bring myself to a 1st grade level to explain this. I own several Seinfeld videos and loved the show. I was planning on purchasing the box sets as Christmas gifts for family members and myself. We have all like the show. But I will not celebrate the Birth of Christ by putting money in a Racists' pocket. There is definately a lack of morals, ethics and intelligence here. If I have one message it is love thy neighbor......Ever heard of it.......
Did you know that if you buy gifts made in China that you are supporting a country the persecutes Christians? When you shop at Wal-Mart ( the evil empire) you are helping to support a country that kills Christians? Will you celebrate Jesus's birthday with gifts from China, Indonesia, or other countries that hate Jews and Christians?

This was difficult for me to come down to a first grade level to give out this information. But maybe it will help solve some of the ignorance on the subject celebrating Jesus’ birthday.
Cool
This is a lost cause. I cant believe an adult would be this ignorant without a mental defect. If you are a teenager playing on the computer then you have time to mature. If I had to guess, your a middle aged white man, hates life, and everyone in it. You arent happy with yourself, so you take it out on everyone else. You understand the comments that I have made and you know what you are doing by being a bigot is wrong but you dont care. You like the confrontation. If I know that money is going directly into the pocket of someone that I feel is spreading hate then I wont support it. Can I stop it from happening all of the time, well of course not. Can I make sure no one evil ever gets a penny of my money, well of course not. As I said before this has gotten to a new level of childishness and I wont feed into it any further. Have a pleasant life and after life Mr. Gentleman and my wish for you is that you find peace at night. At the end of the day thats what I want.

This is great. What would be said if there were some kind of issue here? We are all responsible for our own behavior, words, actions and deeds. If Michael Richards says something you don't like, don't listen to him anymore. This is a non issue, it has less to do with race than it does with behavior of ALL the participants.

I finally just listened to his tirade myself on YouTube. I don't think he said anything about hanging, but the rest is accurate. He completely lost his mind and there is no excuse for what he said. Unfortunately, there is no footage (that I know of) of what happened prior to his tirade which starts with him shouting "shut up shut up shut up".
Well, I was wrong. There are accounts of what the hecklers said. Among other rude comments, they used a racial slur directed at Richards. So it was NOT an attack on innocent black men, but a response to the same thing everyone's mad at Richards for doing. These two men are equally at fault for what happened and just as wrong for their racial slurs. So, JJ, how about we declare war on the "C" word as well?
Speaking of ignorance.....what does "Sienfeld merchandise" have to do with this incident?? Mr. Richards had/has absolutely nothing to do with the franchise that was/is the "Seinfeld" show (btw, notice the correct spelling). He was merely employed by the show as an actor, when it was in production. He had/has no hand in it's creation, writing or merchandising then or now. Therefore, would not your saying " I will not purchase Sienfeld merchandise any longer " be in direct contradiction to your saying "Micheal Richards feels like he is superior to another race that GOD created. To spew negative and hateful remarks about an entire race of people that GOD used his hands and infinate power to create is scary and absolutely ignorant. If you cant get along with your brothers and sisters on earth do you think that you will stand next to them in HEAVEN?"?? Are you not discriminating against the people who actually DO control the Seinfeld franchise...even though they had absolutely nothing to do with Mr. Richards tirade?

What's good for the goose....

*This post is directly regarding the post made by "Tired of Ignorance" earlier in this thread.*
#1 This isnt a college paper, its a stupid chat room so I wasnt spell checking. I didnt know it was being graded????LOL...........And If you dont understand where I am coming from, then leave it alone. My friend just told me comments were on here so I stopped by to respond..........Just forget it and go on about your life. You have got to be joking if you think that Richards isnt making money off the products of SEINFELD>>>SP...........but i am sure that it wont hurt his pocketbook any. I just dont see the show the same anymore. After he said that garbage and the other actors supported him, I am simply not interested in watching him act anymore. Remember, when he said these things he wasnt just attacking the men in the room, the words he said have pain attatched to them..........I have never felt mad or pain over hearing someone call a white person the "c" word. Its immiture and wrong but I havent ever cried over it. Its all about being sensitive to other people. If you are not a black person and your grand-parents werent slaves who were beaten, raped and sold and killed then you have to really use empathy (look it up) to understand where this comes from. Some people just dont have that in them.
What you are saying is called a DOUBLE STANDARD.
That is what a lot of people have in this country.

If you look back in history as you stated you will find that all races have been inslaved at some point.

It's seems to be ok for everyone in this country to be prejudice except White people.

Slavery ended 140 years ago. WHEN will people get past it? Is there even anyone left alive that remembers actually experiencing slavery themselves or was a slave owner themselves? It is long since time to let it go. I don't receive preferential treatment because I was abused, nor do I expect it. Everyone has pain in their past and pain is pain, no matter the source. To expect everyone to owe me something when they did not inflict this pain on me is ridiculous.

What Richards did was sorry and he is obviously a rude miserable little man, but it is not worthy of special attention.
The thing is, no one living has grand parents who were slaves. There may be a few who had great-grandparents, but those people are pretty old. Another fact is not all blacks are descended from slaves. It's actually closer to 1 in 4.

Still, both the hecklers and Kramer were in the wrong. It was a group of idiots acting like idiots, nothing more.
One thing that's curious to me, as it is to others Black & White, is why some Negro rappers & comedians (Dave Chappel, Richard Pryor, et al) can use a degrading term such as "n***a" (and worse) and other such obscene nonsense in their personal speech (one to another), and/or in their performances and think that it's okay, while it's not okay for anyone else to use such perjoratives.

Either it's all okay or it's not.

If one can use it, while the other can't, it shows hypocrisy.

Similarly, the use of the word "ho," when referring to women is equally disrespectful.

Given even broad leway on basis of the First Amendment, it's certain that neither are terms which ought be used in polite company.

Has our society and culture degenerated to the point of gross obscenity, so that the crass, the vulgar, and the coarse are now commonplace or even socially acceptable?

If so (and it quite apparently seems to be the case), why the ruckus over the use of the word?

Or, are we merely attempting to fool ourselves?
HAHAHA.......so silly. You said- """preferential treatment because I was abused, nor do I expect it."""......so you think its preferential treatment not to be called a degrading name in public. You must not think much of yourself. The entire point is if someone tells you "HEY, IT HURTS ME OR MAKES ME MAD WHEN YOU CALL ME THIS" ----what moran would do it anyway?????If you need to call people hurtful names to get your point across you are either 9 years old or slow. I am scared for my children to grow up in a world with some of the people on this page. My six year old understands this my 9 year old understands this.........AND IF YOU ARE NOT BLACK THEN YOU CANT COMMENT ON SLAVERY. I love my late great-grandmother and I wouldnt give anything for the time I spent with her. My children have stayed with their great-grandmother once a week since birth.....I know she had a hard life going through the depression. Now I cant imagine how I would feel if I knew she had been sold or raped or seperated from her family. BUT I AM NOT BLACK so I cant comment or say how someone else should feel about slavery...why would you want to? I am not God....... YOU SAY THEY SHOULD GET OVER IT>.....I GUESS AFRICAN AMERICANS WILL "GET OVER" SLAVERY WHEN THEY LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE PEOPLE DONT DISRESPECT THEM BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN.......Respect is not preferential treatment.......Its what GOD expects of his children.

.........AND IF YOU ARE NOT BLACK THEN YOU CANT COMMENT ON SLAVERY

okay here are YOUR words Tired of Ignorance,so why did YOU even bring slavery into the thread?
But SINCE IT WAS YOU who did bring it here lets dig a wee bit into this subject. Are you aware while all the whooping and hollering goes on here 140 yrs later in the US, that Europe also got in on the slave trade market? Why are blacks not raising a rucus There as well? Oh there is plenty of racial tension in some of the European countries. Also are you aware in MANY instances it was the BLACK kings SELLING their young to Americans for a few trinkets,mirrors,pans,etc.?Why are they not on rampages to THEIR VERY OWN ANCESTORS?

AND since this subject has taken on a life of its own in this thread,,why didn't you address the questions posed by Shoals Lover? I am curious about some answers to those myself.
Why isn't anyone raising hell about the comedy routines of people like Eddie Murphy...Chris Rock....Richard Pryor...any other black comedian you may find?! how 'bout he way they ridicule the white people? I laugh with them, but let a white person make a joke about the black people of any other minority....LOOK OUT!! Somebody's gonna have to "apologize"!!

bunch of whiney @$$ people!
