The thing that really cracked me up about the "Late Show" fiasco was an undertone that Richards almost seemed to say "atleast I didn't cause Katrina so blacks should like me", did anyone else pick up on that?

Apparently the guy that he was going off on started all this by calling Richards an "unfunny cracker" while heckling him and Richards responded (as we've all seen). I think Michael Richards got screwed on this one. He was provoked with racist banter and responded with it.

Well....the difference is Artie is not knowingly referring to gay people as "faggots", while Richards knowingly called a black person "nigger". If the heckler wasn't black and Richards still used the term towards him I doubt there would have been such an uproar. But I agree with BigEdPVD that there's a double standard; no one said shit about Chris Rock's anti-white comments on his last HBO special.

I don't thinks Richards attack was aimed at ALL black people,just THAT heckler.If the heckler started it by calling Richards something inappropriate then the natural reflex would be to respond in kind.

Its because a certain segment of our society (the whites), once used another segment of society (the blacks) for manual labor and treated them like dogs. then we gave them their freedom, but not rights, and misused them for another extended period of time. The term nigger is pretty much a white person referring to that period of time. Blacks have been treated as lower class people for a long period of time in this country.

That being said, I find it all hilarious, because I love when stupid people get in trouble.
