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.

A racist has the power to say whatever he wants and then be able to use this power to do whatever he/she wants. Richards is just plain predjudiced. He thought that he could get away with saying what most people say in the presence of people who think the way they do. Unfortunately, he was not in the right group to get away with what he said. Most people have the insight to say things among their own. It's unfortunate that a talented man like him has to have this statement follow him around for the rest of his life. Many people of color used to really like him. Now they've found out that his type of humor is not what they thought it was.
