Kramer’s Tirade

Michael Richards the actor/comedian who played the crazy Cosmo Kramer on the hit TV show "Seinfeld," exploded in anger as he performed at a famous L.A. comedy club last Friday, hurling racial insults after being heckled by two black members of the audience.

Richards began his attack, screaming at one of the men, "Fifty years ago we'd have you upside down with a f***ing fork up your ass." Richards continued, "You can talk, you can talk, you're brave now motherf**ker. Throw his ass out. He's a nigger! He's a nigger! He's a nigger! A nigger, look, there's a nigger!" The crowd is visibly and audibly confused and upset. Richards responds by saying, "They're going to arrest me for calling a black man a nigger." One of the men who was the object of Richard's tirade was outraged, shouting back "That's un-f***ing called for, ain't necessary." His outburst was caught on camera and has subsequently been making the rounds on the Internet. The comedian later appeared on the letterman show to make an apology for the outburst.

Frankly I don’t know why people are so surprised, racism is still alive and always will be no matter how much people try to conceal it every now and again you will get an outburst like this, Michael Richards was just saying what many people feel and say behind close doors.
