    OT-Michael Richards

    Man that guy melted down. I don't see him working again, not in the US anyway

    Re: OT-Michael Richards

    Personally I don't blame him. Some guys were heckling him and he lost it. If he wasn't white this wouldn't be that big of a deal. If I were in his position I can't say that I wouldn't do the same. He will work again too. He was the most popular character on the best TV show ever. He will work again it just might be a while.

    Re: OT-Michael Richards

    I don't agree with what Richards did, but my question is why is it acceptable for black people to call each other the 'N' word? Or black people to call white people 'cracker' or 'whitey' or whatever else? And why did the mayor of New Orleans say they needed to make New Orleans chocolate once again (or something to that effect) and not get in trouble? And why is the NAACP able to get away with some of the things they say and do without being called racist...or get into serious trouble?

    There's such a double standard in today's society, and it's pathetic.

    I'll still buy Seinfeld Season 7 on DVD when it comes out, and will enjoy watching reruns everynight. To me, Kramer is Kramer.

    Wow-some guy told him he didn't think he was funny, and Richards went off and went waaay over the line. Jerry Seinfeld isn't taking his side. This IS a big deal.

    And Johnny Majors was the greatest FB coach in ISU history, IMHO

    Re: OT-Michael Richards

    I'm don't agree with what he did but I really think that there are bigger problems with this country than Cosmo Kramer having a mental breakdown. If he comes to Ames to do a show, I'll go. I really don't have a problem with this because like cytheguy said there is HUGE double standard in this country. If he wasn't white this wouldn't have even made the news.

    No its Earl Bruce but I just put DMac on there to be nice. I'm so young I don't even remember either majors or bruce so I really can't talk.
