What do you think about Michael Richard's racist outburst?

What do you think about comedian Michael Richards ("Kramer" from Seinfeld) screaming anti-Black racial slurs at an African American audience member during his standup routine? Do you think Richards is a racist?

    It was appalling. An outburst like that is a window into his actual beliefs. He is a racist.

    you would possibly want to no longer provide a demonstration of what you're speaking about for those those who do not get our information from television or different mainstream resources? (i have now heard a recording, yet giving an expurgated synopsis would were so as.) Unprofessional is the first be conscious that springs to ideas -- coping with hecklers is element of the interest description. Racist, to say the least. (Why is it that once a White pulls the race card by lumping all Blacks into one classification even as a Black human being p*ss*s them off, human beings accuse Blacks of pulling the race card? seems to me, he pulled it first. each and every man or woman is rightly offended by his "feedback" -- I ain't Black, and that i'm offended.) Overblown? contained in the experience that who cares what he says or does, if the media is overlaying this as an substantial information tale, then, sure -- wide-spread "information" fixation on minutiae. Are human beings's reactions overblown? No. It became disgusting and sub-human. the guy benefits to take a substantial occupation hit for it. Boycott Michael Richards. Patronize human beings, truly.

    It really is too bad to know that people still harbor these feelings towards us as if we crawled illegally across some border to get here.I think it's shameful that color,a thing no one has any choice about is hated so much by so many,unless it comes in a bottle.

    Yes he is a racist, and it just came out!!

    Blacks can make fun of themselves, Hispanics can make fun of themselves, but given the violent history of whites like the KKK or Nazi's, it's dumb for a White to even think about making fun of Blacks.

    So, why is it that when he does it, it is a racial slur and when Richard Pryor or Dave Chappell do it it is hilarious?
