Default Michael Richards Racial Rant isn't alone.

I'm not going to defend Michael Richards, i'm pissed at what that idiot did and said, but his racial rant only got noticed because he's famous (although i didn't even know his real name until after the incident). As much as i'd like to think that racism is much less than it was before, it's really not. The real difference is that black people have more rights now, and whites keep their comments buried inside. Not all are corrupt, but at the same time, i've seen many situations on tv and even personal situations in which people have said to someone or even call me a n**** when they got pissed. I'll never accept the excuse of it being a defense mechanism. The word was a term for black inferiority during the times of slavery and shouldn't be in anyone's mind to use even when mad. If i'm mad at a jewish guy, I wouldn't say, "50 years ago, i'd have you in a Nazi camp." There are just certain things that shouldn't be said ever. And racism is around as much as it's always been, the only difference is people now adays make a greater effort to hide it.

M Richards angrily screamed the N word at a group (or two, I dont know for sure)of black people.

It was the way he did it that makes him racist, not the words alone (which would also make it bad, but not as bad as his delivery heightened it).

There was a funny video a while ago teacher explaining the difference between "nigggaaaaaa-aaa" and nigge*. I think he got pissed about his students using the word and used it on his students. It got TV coverage and all

Its tough for us whities to come up with comebacks when were called soft ass whitebpoys and crackers because of our ancestors It pisses me off

I'm not white, but even if i was, I don't think i'd find being called a "soft-ass white boy" or a cracker, to be as offensive as being called a n*****

honestly, that's pretty irrelevant. there are less whites living in poverty than anyone else in the world.

yeah, when I said white people rule the world I added 'so to speak' which means doent translate it word by word.

In America (where black and white tensions have always been high) white peopel control most things, and the distribution of power has not always been fair, so an insult directed at a group which has been hsitorically marginized in the US (blacks) is going to be a lot more hurtful than an insult direct at those who control the power.

Amen.

I'm certainly not seeing it.

Seems to me there are a lot more black athletes and they get paid pretty well.

I work at a god damn retail store making less than $12/hour.


I don't agree with what Kramer did, but I also think there's a double standard.

Why is it acceptable for Chris Rock to bash white people all day, but if a white comedian makes a joke it they get ridiculed for it?

And I'm not talking about Kramer. He was out of line. But not as much as they made it out to be. Did he say something offensive? Yes. Absolutely. Was he out of line? Yes. Is he a racist? Maybe. Dunno.

I do know that there is no word you can call a white person that they will find that offensive. But if you called a woman the c word, then she'd get just as pissed as calling a black woman the n word.

I think the race card is totally overplayed. And those guys at the night club want money for retribution? Obviously they're just out to get something out of him. That's freedom of speech, you can't ask for money. Can I go ask for money from some guy who calls me a cracker?

Also, if a bunch of black guys jump a white guy it's a crime. But if a bunch of white guys jump a black guy and say the N word, it's a hate crime. What the f? They both got their ass kicked, why does it matter the reason? That's ignorant.

And black people if you don't like the N word so god damn much, then quit calling each other ni@@ers.

Otherwise, shut the f up.
