    Man. I just got into watching Seinfeld not too long ago, probably never look at the show the same again.

    Funny thing is he probably hopped straight into his car and went to the motel before anyone could kick his ass.

    So what I got from it
    This black guy was being rude and talking a lot during his show
    So this guy blew up on him with the N word...
    Well the man has a right to his opinion I suppose?...
    I personally hope he doesn`t go outside or anything like that for his own personal safety.
    Youtube is crippling actors :P I love it

    I dont like what was said but did anyone stop to think that he just tried to make it apart of his act....a part that really failed that is..Think about it how many PPL doing stand up use slurrs and get away with it..I dont like what he said I think he took it way to far and should have stopped when PPL got mad but he did not which I think was really dumb..even if it was part of the act he went way to far!!!!!!!

    All you see is the negative towards Michael, how do you judgmental, ignorant people know that the guy he was yelling at wasn`t heckling him for 20min before this? I bet the dude was calling him a wash up and a cracker long BEFORE Richards went off on him.

    Also, Richards was only treating him like he would any other person, just happened to be a black guy. `I am a racist!` is the only racial slur that people gasp over. Cracker? pssh. Beaner? whatev. I am a racist!? OMG!!!! It`s because the black community takes it so harshly and will kill over a stupid word. Because of that everyone says he went too far cause he used the word. This was Richards` point! He said it and was like `ooohh ohhh see it shocks you.` the `f` word was ok... yelling for interupting was ok... but n-gger... OMG!!!!! what`s the matter? is it to much for you to handle?...get over it...

    You`re one of those people that are just annoyed by the double standards of racism to the point that you actually try and defend when white people are racist, aren`t you?

    I liked the part where everything you said was an assumption. Like "I bet the black dude was racist first" and "he did it to make this point and that point"

    So he went and said the big ol` N word.. SO WHAT? Did anyone cry about the black guy calling him a "Cracker a55 white boy"? I don`t get why it`s totally cool for black people to say whatever they want, yet someone of a different race says something like the N word and it`s the end of the world. Has anyone ever though if it was a black comedian up there, calling a white guy a cracker a55 whiteboy? EVERYONE IN THE ROOM WOULD LAUGH THEIR SOCKS OFF, right? What if the white guy came and said, "YOU N*GGER!" I bet everyone would be like, "Ooohhh"

    Yeah, not too fair is it?

    BTW, I`m not white.

    The term "cracker", in a general sense, is funny and not offensive because no one is offended by it.

    The term "n*gger", in a general sense, is not funny and offensive because people are offended by it.

    Whether or not white people have a `safe` comeback for cracker is beside the point, one word is offensive (generally) and the other isn`t (generally)

    I`m with those that could give a drat. Yeah, double standards. Black Entertainment Channel but not White? Black History but no White? If people want the racism to stop, then people need to stop making a drating huge deal out of it. Besides, racism only hides better, it doesn`t go away. This sort of reaction is only going to make it go on that much longer.

    Again, I could give a drat. I see two men getting into a fight, and one losing his temper.

    Michael Richards is the Man now! He did the right thing and said all the right things, he just should have stood up to those that would censor him and refused to apologize. What blacks don`t recognize is that anyone that flies in their face and says anything they choose becomes popular with the rest of America. Most Americans know that the ghetto was created and perpetuated by blacks; and when someone brought the ghetto to Richards, Richards fought back and went on the offensive. To do otherwise is cowardice. To mild his speech would have made him less funny, less notable, and ineffective against the heckling. Richards does have one ace card in his sleeve, the charge of anti-semitism. If the heckler used an anti-semitic slur it would be obvious whose side the media would have been on, and it wouldn`t be black people`s. There are multiple viewpoints about this and they should be investigated fully. if richards is so unfunny, why was he there? Richards > hecklers.

    "end of discussion"

    Hardly. I`m in America, not some fascist state. I don`t condone racism, but I can see it being exploited, and if somebody is racist, who am I to hate them? Are we all going to teach them a lesson for saying bad words? People would be a lot better off looking after their own poo than worrying about something so insignificant as Kramer calling somebody the sacred "N-word". It`s just popular to be anti-racist now, that`s all. A new fad will come.

    I dont think the offensive part was using the N word anyway. He says `50 years ago we`d have had you hanging upside down with a fork in your ass`, which absolutely belittles the racist murders that were routinely committed all that time ago, as if it doesnt happen now only because its not PC, rather than the killing of innocent people because they are black being absolutely wrong. And he obviously is washed up, a real comedian can have better come backs than pointless shock retorts and `ohhh yeah` when the guy told him how crap and washed up he was!

    Seems to me that words themselves have no power; it`s only when people act as if the words have power that things get out of hand. People are insulted everyday; some overlook it and go about their lives while others prefer to blow things up and make a big scene (and sometimes even war) over it. Countries overseas are actually trying to destroy entire civilizations based solely on nationality, yet people act as if a single word (I am a racist!, kyke, spick, honkey, etc. etc.) is justifiable for murder our the destruction of one`s life. Whatever happened to the old "Sticks and stones..."?

    Woah! IAB automatically tags me with "I am a racist" for typing the `N-word`? Why not censor and tag me for other the racial slurs that I typed? Hmmm... just goes to prove my and other people`s point about certain words being given power to.

    I think this is exactly what shows that we`re not as "equal" as we can be.. It`s so much worse to insult someone black than to insult a white person..

    It basically says that blacks are in a weaker position and they need to be defended. Bull****! :P

    No matter how much history is behind it, it is just a word. A word that wouldn`t have power anymore if people didn`t GIVE it power by getting all sorts of offended when it`s used. Stop making it a big deal when it`s used and people will stop using it to get a rise out of you. It`s really pretty simple.

    I think it`s safe to say that we`ve all said something hateful in a moment of rage. Probably something we didn`t mean and wish we could take back. I`m not condoning what he did, he certainly could of handled it better, but don`t hate the guy or "look at him differently."

    if you think it is the double standard or the amount of interuption from the black guy i still lost alot of respect for him. I guess since he was so frustrated he decided to say it and i think it was stupid to do and watching that actually made me feel like crap. I used to love him on seinfeld i still will, hell i will probably forget about it but right now it is overwhelming

    you know if I was in the same situation and was called a wetback and got offended by it I would leave. Not start yelling and interrupting the mans show. I mean who the hell do some people think they are.... OOOOOHH They called him a N*gger, big deal get over it. 1000`s of Mexicans have died in the Rio Grande trying to cross over into the US and you dont see the term wetback being censored as much as the term N*gger, furthermore I thinks its even more racist to react differently towards whites when they use the term and differently towards other races when they use it. Thats racism whether you can admit it or not.

    Okay, everyone, deep breaths

    1. What Richards said here was wrong and he should appoligize for it. However,

    2. The other guy was bothing him for ages before he let loose. However,

    3. No matter what people may say about double standards, blacks still have it worse that whites and "n*gger" is a worse word than "cracker". However,

    4. I live with a black roommate, and she and her friends call eachother "n*gga" all the time. So where does the line end?

    My point is, it`s too complex for us to decide. And why do we care, anyway? There are much bigger fish to fry.

    Billybob, your eloquence cannot be over-stated. Good job, you posses a third grade education.

    And to anyone who says that "cracker" is as offensive as "n!gger" consider this. The term cracker does not refer to skin-color, contrary to popular belief. It refers to the CRACK of the slave-drivers whip. It basically acknowledges that at one point in history, whites enslaved blacks.

    The reason that it is not quite a double standard is because it is a fact that in the U.S., there has never been a time where being black placed you in a higher social position than being white. But, there was a time that Whites ruled over Blacks in an unequal way, so racial slurs from whites directed at blacks simply "sting" more than slurs directed at whites. Come on, if you are white, do you really get that mad at being called a cracker? You may get mad, but not as mad as the black guy being called a N----- by you.

    Kramers break down was surprising and sad.

    "I don`t get why it`s totally cool for black people to say whatever they want, yet someone of a different race says something like the N word and it`s the end of the world."

    There is a term coined by Bernard Goldberg called the `License to Overkill`. When one group has predominantly suppressed another group and the tides of civil liberties come sweeping in, turning the world on its head, the previously suppressed group has acquired the right to say whatever it pleases against its suppressors without fear of reprisals. Note how the heckler isn`t considered to have anything to apologize for.

    The word n*gger itself isn`t altogether offensive, as much as any word on its own can be offensive: it`s peoples` reactions to the word that makes it unacceptable and a bad reflection on the speaker. Was he being racist? No, he was being bigoted, but he used what I suppose now constitutes a racial slur.

    Overmann, don`t be silly. Comedians are supposed to be funny. Good comedians know how to deal with hecklers in a funny way as well. Kramer failed the test completely (which he admitted himself). I also wonder whether these guys were really heckling. Does somebody know whether there`s a complete tape?

    The connotations of a single word equate to racist ideology? Hasn`t anyone seen the Chris Rock thing where a I am a racist! is a specfic subset of black people who glorify ignorance, violence and general asshat-ery?
    I support that definition (equivilent to goths, punks, jocks), and merely for speaking a word we automatically assume he`s racist? Maybe we should wait until he says omething actually racist (i.e.-exposing the inferiority or superiority of a given race)

    Why is I am a racist! even considered racist anyway? It`s a racially specific descriptive term, in no way containing a racist context.

    benjbenj, are you suggesting I was condoning Richards` comments, or that perhaps I was even defending him? If so, I must say you thought too much into my post and misinterpreted it. I have no hidden agenda, I was only mentioning the reason why no one is asking the heckler to apologize as well.

    Saying the word n*gger does not automatically qualify someone as a racist. Coincidentally, this is stereotyping. Immigrant has it right: choosing to use a slur considered by a number of people to be a racist slur does not automatically mean that person holds some racist ideology.

    Just watched the apology and I must say, it must have taken a lot to do that.

    i`m like the only asian in a all black school and i can tell you that it isn`t really fair. If they make some sort of racial slur towards me everyone else just laughs. But if i said something offensive they would all gang up on me and call me ignorant.

    I think what michael did was over the top, but how the guy reacted was equally inappropriate.

    How is that term not offensive? It`s the exact same as the n-word only applied to a different race. Don`t be ignorant. Just because comedians like Mencia use it all the time- doesn`t mean it`s funny and okay to say. I`d be outraged if someone called me a cracker.

    Hmm, but maybe cracker should be more offensive than it is. In its historical sense, it is the label of a cruel and sadistic bully, who treats other humans like animals. To assign such a label to people who are not responsible for their forefathers actions, particularly when only a small proportion of white people are actually related to slave-drivers anyway, is almost like labelling all germans as nazis, or all middle eastern people as terrorists. Which generally is not (and should not be) done.

    If everyone here hates Michael Richards now, what about the rappers that say "nigga this, nigga that" all the time. If it is considered a racial slur, then why is it used so much in the black community. What about black comics that use the word cracker or stereotype white people? I think it`s about time to retire all those "race cards"

    Sure the guy was interrupting him - but there are way more funny things he could have said. This earns an awkward giggle.

    Dane Cook had a heckler once, and he even included them on his CD. However, racial slurs were never said, and the entire situation was diffused with laughter! Yay!

    P.S. - I don`t care if you like Dane Cook or if you think he`s overrated, it`s just an example.

So he said the N word, at least he doesnt have to hide behind false toughness, and act like hes going to beat up anyone whos ays anything like a bitch. He makes jokes, and he was making a joke there, and it was funny. The only thing I hate is that he wussed out and apologized on TV because no one got the joke.

    "Cracker being just as offensive as n*gger? You`ve got to be kidding me."

    See, you have also succumbed to the License to Overkill mindset. Is cracker, which is in fact a racial slur, somehow less offensive because blacks have earned a right to be racist? Is calling a woman a b*tch more offensive than calling a man a bastard? No, and it shouldn`t be. So goes the spiral of double-standards.

    I have always thought Michael Richards was a humorless prick. This isn`t the first instance I`ve read about where he`s a complete A$$HOLE towards anyone around him. Heckling is to be expected in Comedy Clubs and has been going on since the 80s.

    Yeah, saw the Letterman apology as well. PATHETIC! Not once did I think he was sincere about what he did - he came across like he was doing damage control in order to save his job.

    Bottom line: If the guys in the audience are being jerks, don`t lower yourself BELOW their level.

A term which applies to white, southern plantation/slave owners of the 1800`s... Because white, southern plantation/slave owners took away their rights, more than 150 years ago. I had nothing to do with that. WHy is that fair?

    And tonesontail if you get your history right, it was only about 10% of southerners who owned slaves. AND African tribes would capture people from neighboring tribes and sell them to the ships making the middle passage. So it wasn`t just the white people who humilitated them.

    And nowhere did I say or imply that the n-word wasn`t offensive. I hate the word and would neve condone it.

    He does have a point. It`s not against the law to say n***er, but it`s only OK for black people to say it. F*** you.

    And will people please stop calling people racist. The true definition of racism defines it as an institution acting on discrimination or prejudice. Kramer is not an institution.

    b-hazard, cracker may be a term that isnt generally looked at as very offensive, but isnt the meaning behind it the exact same as n*gger, simply to put down another. Just because n*igger has more history as a terrible term, doesnt make cracker any better. Im not trying to stick up for this washed up f*ckbag "comedian" in any way. He obviously chose the wrong way to go about a heckler. On racism in general, I just feel that so many people in the minority community look at white peoples racist remarks as a way to advance themselves up, instead of actually being distraught about it. "yea, i wasnt offended by him calling me nig, but im sure as drat gonna make a big deal about it, to make the white man look like poo, because thats how were going to move up the chain." Racism is racism is racism, there are not different levels, just different opinions on what is being said. I just think that minorites use racism as ammunition, but it all stems from a country full of idi

    I don`t appreciate being called a cracker tonesontail. How can you think that it`s okay to slur against me because I`m white. The racial slur issue goes beyond the n-word. No it`s not just because of slavery. There are many factors involved. But the bottom line is. You can`t think the N-word is bad, and think calling me any other slur but that one is alright.

    Saying the "N" word could constitute hate speech or obsenity. So, in fact, it can be against the law.

    What makes it racist is that he said the word to offend. That was the whole point. He wanted to press their buttons because they heckled him, and he went way out of line for it. He wanted something to press against them, and since he chose to use a racial slur, that makes him at least in some respects a racist.

    I think anyone that uses racial slurs, no matter what they are (even "cracker"), are ignorant. Why use a derogatory name for someone`s race? It is completely retarded. Does that make someone racist? Not necessarily. However, when someone is driven by anger to use those words, it does become racism.

    "The true definition of racism defines it as an institution acting on discrimination or prejudice. Kramer is not an institution."

    Kramer isn`t a "racism", he`s a racist, or a person belonging to such an institution. Idiot.

    --What makes it racist is that he said the word to offend. That was the whole point.However, when someone is driven by anger to use those words, it does become racism.--

    That is so amazingly untrue. Racism is entirely about racial inferiority, superiority or negative racial atrrtubtes (or positive ones).
    Regardless of intent, nigg*r isn`t racist. No more then black slob is racist. It is descriptive. It is sterotypical, and insulting, but far from racist.

    I think anyone that uses racial slurs, no matter what they are (even "cracker"), are ignorant. Why use a derogatory name for someone`s race?

    I love how you make the claim of ignorance regarding any racial slurs without actually realizing they are not racist. F*ggot, like n*gger, though offensive, are both merely descriptive terms for individuals. Insults, if you will, with the connotation of a fairy-boy and slovenly black chap respectively. They are not racist as they speak nothing about black`s as a race.

    "The term n*gger is now probably the most offensive word in English. Definitions 1a, 1b, and 2 represent meanings that are deeply disparaging and are used when the speaker deliberately wishes to cause great offense. Definition 1a, however, is sometimes used among African-Americans in a neutral or familiar way. Definition 3 is not normally considered disparaging—as in "The Irish are the n*ggers of Europe" from Roddy Doyle`s The Commitments—but the other uses are considered contemptuous and hostile.

    –noun 1. Slang: Extremely Disparaging and Offensive. a. a black person.
    b. a member of any dark-skinned people.

    2. Slang: Extremely Disparaging and Offensive. a person of any race or origin regarded as contemptible, inferior, ignorant, etc.

    3. a victim of prejudice similar to that suffered by blacks; a person who is economically, politically, or socially disenfranchised."

    The term "cracker" is generally accepted as being borne from the overseer "cracking" a whip over the slaves. Most people agree that "I am a racist!" has had a far worse connotation to threat, violence, and malice than "cracker" has ever had. MR`s use of the term "I am a racist!" may be shocking, however that in and of itself was not the most shocking thing...most of you forget his reference to "lynching" (the whole 50 yrs ago you`d have a pitchfork in your ass) and "see what happens when you mess with the white man". His behavior was extremely bigoted and he is entitled to his opinion. I however will not be supporting Mr. Richards any longer.

    "Why use a derogatory name for someone`s race? It is completely retarded. Does that make someone racist? Not necessarily. However, when someone is driven by anger to use those words, it does become racism."

    Richards was clearly trying to offend the man and n*gger is quite possibly the worst insult that applied. However, racism in its definition has nothing to do with hate as much as it has to do with holding a sustained belief that people of other races are inferior\superior. Was Richards attempting to offend every black person in the audience? Personally I think he was trying to make it part of his act, but he was still only addressing the one heckler.

    Has Richards betrayed some obscure racist agenda by choosing an insult he felt would most offend his detractor?

    He is so stupid!! what is wrong with him? doesn;t he know that he`s going to get beat up if he ssays racist comments?! I know it was wrong of the black dude, but screaming out the N word? For those of you who don`t think it`s offensive, it really is because black people were called n*ggers back in the slave days all the time and they resent that. Being reminded of that word makes them steam and someone who tries to get away with saying that word most likely will get cussed out are something. Black or white, hispanic or asian, its wrong to say that. Agh this makes me mad. BTW I`m black and white, so i don`t take sides. I`ll settle it with this. Richards is a racist old man who deserves to get his @$$ beat.

    spoonfork... anti-racism is a fad? wow...a fad thats been around since ooooh i dont know.... racism. which makes this "fad" a century+ years old. crack a history book one day if youd be so kind.
    for the others...i dont think anyone has stated that its ok to call someone a cracker because its less offensive. what was said is that it "is less offensive". why? im glad you asked. as i stated earlier, the word carries a great deal of history with it. referring to a time that shouldnt have been. on the matter of carlos mencia... racism IS HIS ACT...thats what he does and he does it across the board. not just for whites, but for everyone EVEN mexicans. so points trying to be made based on mencias act are moot.

    Ahh, because people who have opinions we consider cruel but do nothing beyond keep there opinions to themselves should be violently assualted?

    I love people who harp on culturally acceptable whipping targets with what I think is pride. Then I don`t wonder any more how things like Nazism work.

    Ah, Mikallang, our faithfully oblivious would-be comrade! Not a `fad` at all, like segregation was pre-1960`s? That kind of thing that people tend to harp on it more, the less of it there actually is to point at? That`s why they take instances like THIS to such extremes, when before such outbursts would have been more socially-acceptable... because racism is a business that must be kept alive for those who make a living off of opposing it, to stay employed? Could that possibly have been what was meant by "fad?" Furthermore, for you not to get that Cracker has a long, brutal and offensive history for white people is insensitively negligent. How would you like to be referred to in a way (for instance by your unfathomable avatar) that implies responsibility for those crimes, simply because of your race? Talk about being a false-victim; how about being falsely accused! That`s what the word "cracker" does to white people, and in that sense is ever the more inconsiderate.

    Benjbenj, I don`t think you get it. Just because people have an interest in keeping racism alive to FIGHT it, by sensationalism or other means, because that`s where they make their living, does not mean it doesn`t still spring-up on it`s own beyond their sphere of influence; and I see it springing-up a lot more from the black community and others (Mexican community) than anywhere else in America; unless you believe the "license to overkill" somehow absolves them of vulnerability to this characterization.

    Another thing. You see racism spring up a lot more from the black community and others (Mexican community) than anywhere else in America. Maybe you`re just as blind as those who see racism spring up a lot more from the white community and "make a living off of opposing it"? There`s no guarantee that your perception is less colored than theirs, is there?

    Racism fought as a campiagn rather then a case by case basis in the modern world is making a living off racism. It has been sufficently driven underground so that a white who says "blacks are horrible" gets fired/beat/looses freinds almost immediatly.
    There`s no need to campaign agianst that which the culture has already changed it`s veiws regarding.

    Yes, but you consider racism bad no? Would you argue that (at least white on minority racism) is no longer culturally acceptable?

    If so, racism should be fought every time someone does something racist, not as an overarching tv campiagn, poster posting, rallies, etc.

    Oh yeah, and where do you live exactly, Benji? Don`t tell me Germany or Britain or France; they actually have institutionalized ANTI-racism, as in laws designed to prevent whites from speaking their mind when it comes to socially unacceptable content, such as: "we don`t want these arabic islamist extremist flooding our country and rioting in our streets, or working to overthrow our government." That kind of "hate-speech" will land you a jail sentance in many of your heavily intolerant European nations, but I can tell you where the institutionalized intolerance is coming from, and it`s definitely not the National Front.

    Way to go for your first post, frogx; submitting to the view that blacks should resort to violence when confronted with something that perturbes them, rather than trying to muster a slightly more intelligable reaction; but I guess you`d have to have intellectual confidence before you could mount such a response, right?

    I`m sorry but I find Cracker offensive. So why do they get to say it. Do I get called racist for saying they also? WTF, people this is what makes everyone petty.

    Ok first of all, the show couldn`t have been that good because the dude just isn`t funny, and neither is Seinfeld. Second, calling anyone any racial slur is inappropriate. I don`t say it`s fair that n*gger gets such a heated response and cracker doesn`t, but if whites are really offended by the word cracker (which somehow I doubt), they don`t have to accept it either because it is inappropriate.
    Third, the guy was talking during his show. But why not say, "Please be quiet, or you will be removed from the show?" Did going nuts solve anything? The show was ruined. Besides, he`s not speaking at the queen`s funeral or accepting a Nobel Prize, he`s doing some lame stand-up act. Not that crucial.
    And wow, he apologized. I don`t really see how that makes up for it. I mean, he didn`t commit a mortal crime or anything, but yelling n*gger like 20 times at a comedy show with a microphone isn`t something that can happen by accident. If that`s how he feels, it wou

    It`s just amazing how race is obviously such an issue for some people. I never think of someone just in terms of that person`s ethnicity, and certainly not as a n*gger or a cracker, even when that person pisses me off. I don`t think I`ll ever get it.

    Suicism, in my country, the Netherlands, it`s the other way round. There are plans to make laws to curb hate-speech from Muslims! I don`t think those laws will make it. Just like you I think it`s ridiculous to ban hate-speech, so I`m glad to see that I can agree with you on at least one point.

    "Would you argue that (at least white on minority racism) is no longer culturally acceptable?"

    To large groups of people racism is perfectly acceptable. They don`t care a f*ck about what others think of their racist remarks. It might be different in the USA, but that`s not where I live.

    "Racism should be fought every time someone does something racist."

    Yes, why not? You probably won`t achieve much, but doing nothing is even worse. So... I turn out to agree with you on one point as well.

    Being "white", I can say that almost all of my friends are racist against african americans, especially my mexican-american friend. But I did date an African-american girl once. She wondered why schoolkids were walking around at 1pm one January day. It was MLK day, I reminded her.

    QUOTE__"The term "cracker", in a general sense, is funny and not offensive because no one is offended by it.

    The term "n*gger", in a general sense, is not funny and offensive because people are offended by it.

    Whether or not white people have a `safe` comeback for cracker is beside the point, one word is offensive (generally) and the other isn`t (generally)"

    They are both racist terms, PERIOD!

    What`s so interesting about determining the racist value of "n*gger" and "cracker"? The whole thing is about a stand-up comedian who went crazy about next to nothing.
