I always love when people react to racism by resorting to racism...

OK, that really didn't work out to well. Not cool at all.

That is one word that I don't use but it is funny how a black man can call another black man that, and there is no issue. Black man can call a white man cracker and no one calls them a racist.

If it was Chris Rock on stage no one would even know about it.

He sounds like he's on drugs or or had a few too many drinks or something..

It's one thing to lose it and sound off... But he seems completely irrational in the clip, he raves on for quite some time...

"Seinfeld" star Richards under fire for racial outburst

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Comic actor
Michael Richards, famed for playing the quirky character Kramer on television's "Seinfeld," drew anger, not laughter, when he unleashed a torrent of racial slurs at hecklers while performing a stand-up act in Hollywood.

The incident, captured in digital-camera video footage obtained by the celebrity Web site TMZ.com and circulated over the Internet on Monday, took place during Richards' live performance on Friday night at the Laugh Factory comedy club.

Eyewitnesses interviewed by TMZ and cable news outlet CNN said Richards' act took an ugly turn when members of the audience began heckling him.

In the video, the performer appears to lose his cool, shouts "Shut up!" and makes a racially offensive statement.

As nervous laughter gives way to groans and boos from the audience, Richards lets loose a barrage of racial slurs and epithets and points to someone in the crowd.

Richards continues to rant as people in the crowd are heard shouting back at him, "that was uncalled for," and the comic yells: "Well, you interrupted me pal, that's what happens when you interrupt the white man."

'HE OFFENDED EVERYONE'

After several minutes, during which many members of the audience can be seen leaving their seats, Richards abruptly drops the microphone and steps down from the stage.

Richards' manager and agent were not immediately available for comment on Monday.

CNN, which reported that Richards returned to the club for a performance on Saturday night, said the comedian declined to comment on camera when asked about the incident but said he was sorry and had made amends.

But a member of the audience from Friday night's show, Darryl Pitts said he felt Richards should make a public apology "to everyone."

"He offended everyone that was in the club that night," Pitts told CNN. "He offended every African American in this country."

News of the incident also drew a denunciation from Richards' former co-star,
Jerry Seinfeld, who released a statement calling Richards' tirade "so extremely offensive."

"I am sick over this," Seinfeld said. "I'm sure Michael is also sick over this horrible, horrible mistake. ... I feel terrible for all the people who have been hurt."

Richards idiosyncratic Kramer persona was a favorite on "Seinfeld" during its nine-year run on NBC, but his first stab at a sitcom of his own in 2000 was short-lived.

"The Michael Richards Show," in which he starred as bumbling private detective Vic Nardozza, was canceled due to low ratings after several episodes. The series was widely panned by critics.

A lesbian chick that used to hang around in my group used to get pissed off at anyone that called something "gay". I never stopped.

Sticks and stones...

Im sure he was hoping for some playful banter from that...tit for tat..didnt work out that way. I don't like anyone using the "N" word no matter what color your skin is. No need for it, its a stupid useless word. I really think he was hoping for more laughs with messing with the hecklers since he tried carrying on with his set after saying the "N" word. But im sure they all wouldve laughed their assess off if he went after some other ethnicity.

I agree with TX...that its funny how its ok for black people to use the word on each other and then get offended when a white person says it whether playful or not and are able to call white people crackers, whitebread, etc. and not get called a racist. Thats why EVERYONE needs to stop using it. You don't see white people lashing out at Chris Rock at his shows when he starts his racist shit...and yes..I think his stand up is nothing but racist crap.

I think Kramer said it once as a knee-jerk to being heckled and called a cracker ...and then was just so mad he couldn't control it... I don't think he's intentially a racist... but sometimes your insides pop out...

It's kinda funny how mad and out of control he got ... and very wrong what he said.

Just saw him on Letterman apologize but it was kinda creepy. He was obviously very upset about what he did and the audience began to laugh when he was quiet. Jerry Seinfeld told the audience to stop laughing. I don't think he is able to make this better as there does not appear to be any plausable excuse other than he is a racist.
