Ooops: Seinfeld's Michael Richards lets his inner bigot out
Michael Richards said Monday he spewed racial epithets during a stand-up comedy routine because he lost his cool while being heckled and not because he's a bigot.
I don't know about you but I'm sick and tired of watching some racist celebrity do the bigot mea culpa all over the media sphere while racking up publicity points. I'm not sure we shouldn't just ignore these bastards and deny them the air time. I guess if I were an evil-genius manager I would be ecstatic - my previously forgotten client is almost a household name. In my maniacal glee, I would scheme, "So what if he's banned from some LA comedy club. He will be a star in Bush country, with an unbreakable hold on a new fan base of racists, bigots and weirdos. They will welcome him at White Power rallies as a cultural hero. They will take up "50 years ago we would have you hanging upside down with a fork up your ass," as a war cry and anthem. He's going to be huge with KKK audiences!"
If you haven't caught the frightening tirade hustle on over to YouTube for a lesson in stupidity. I feel bad for the guy because I really think he needs therapy that he's not getting. Poor little bigot. He's so sorry you now know him for exactly what he is - a racist.
It's degrading, Michael Richards degraded all Black people not just those in the audience.
I hold him responsible I think we should as a people persue to have him banned from every venue of entertainment.
