Did you SEE his standup rant? He's either racist, or insane. Or both. Click 'media' below to see the clips 212 People

    Get Over It

    I've got to admit that there was a time when you could really make me mad just by saying the wrong thing, but wait, was it really the wrong thing or did i just choose to take offence so that i could beat the hell out of someone. Think about it, first of all this is america the...

    I Don't Think He's Racist!

     I heard words that came from an angry man's mouth, albeit some of the worst words that a person can refer to another.  Mike Richards aka Kramer was very hostile and upset over the fact that some hecklers weren't paying attention to his stand-up routine.  This...

    Inadequate Performance

    Whether he is racist or not. He is an entertainer and hecklers is a downside of the job. To air your personnal racial feelings in a public setting like that is totally UNPROFESSIONAL. What about the members of the African-American community that just came to see a comedian...

    Nothing Much Has Changed Regarding Racism

    When my son was 9 we were at a check out counter in a convenience store and my son had been looking at the toys display next to the isle and he comes up to me with tears running down his face and I say what's wrong did somebody tell you to move? And he said that man, pointing...

    Pot Meet Kettle, Kettle Meet Pot....definite Anger Issues..

    Okay, what he said was horrible, degrading..you name it but this was a rant of an angry man, saying things (as we all do) that would have the most affect, be the most hurtful.  He got out of control...he needs to learn how to deal with his anger more appropriately, seek help...

    Not a Racist-but Knows How to Retaliate

    This is the first time we have heard any sign that this very public person is a racist. We cannot label someone from a single act. I believe he was upset at being continuously interrupted by this individual and simply lashed out in the most offensive way he thought would get to...

    I have to admit I had never heard of him until I watched the video but I think the guy is a complete idiot, and yes I do think what he said is racist, un-called for and disgusting. He should know that some things you just don't try to make jokes of. Racism is one of them. All the...

    YES, and i have said it before. His pathetic behaviour IN PUBLIC, leads me to the only conclusion that in PRIVATE his remarkably disgusting thoughts, which so easily spued out of his mouth, when he TRIED to be a stand up comic, JUST came out of PURE anger and hatred. IF he can...

    What I Heard.......

    I heard from someone at work that those people were heckling Michael Richards first with racist comments. Calling someone a cracker is just as bad as calling someone a ******. However, he shouldn't have reacted the way he did, at all. He should have just walked away.

    Why Say the "n" Word?

    Being racist should never be combined with laughter.  It is ignorant of a person to speak in such a manner, especially if you are in any way educated.  A person should know better, you would think.  It is a crazy world that we reside in, and we do not need...

    In My Humble Opinion

    i have read pretty much all of the reactions to mr. richards rant...my opinion is yes, he did say everything out of anger, and this does not necessarily make him a racist, but the odds are that he probably is at least a little racist, if not totally racist. maybe i'm giving him...
