View Full Version : Michael Richards & Jesse Jackson

Michael Richards just comes off as dumb, and pathetic, and yes,
sadly, a man with a racist streak.

Maybe it was hidden in him, maybe it was something he did only
in private, but it came out in public, on tape, for posterity.

Jackson gave him decent time and coverage. Give Jesse kudos
for giving the guy a chance.

But, it didn't do much good.

Groveling should continue Michael.
Like - forever.

You'll never live that down.

Mel's exclusive with Diane Sawyer for his Jew hating comments.
Mel's exclusive for Apocalypto with ABC ...not like it was tied to
money or contracts or corporate ties or anything like that...just
good journalism ABC.

Trett Lott gives a dumb compliment, but not outwardly racist,
to a 100 year old Senator, and he's put over the coals for
months by the media. Banished from his job for a while, booted
from the #1 spot in the Senate for years....

George Allen says macaca on tape, and he essentially loses
the Senate seat he had because of it. Ridiculed and bashed
endlessly (deservedly), for it.

Michael Richards, he gets 'oh poor Michael', he's not right,
he has problems, he has issues, Letterman, Jackson, he'll
do Diane Sawyer and Barbara Walters soon.

Rosie will probably have him on The View.

[quote]Trett Lott gives a dumb compliment, but not outwardly racist,:scratch:. You were doing pretty good until you said Trent Lott's statement wasn't racist.

"I want to say this about my state: When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We're proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have had all these problems over all these years, either," Lott said at last week's party.
Thurmond ran as the presidential nominee of the breakaway Dixiecrat Party in the 1948 presidential race against Democrat Harry Truman and Republican Thomas Dewey. He carried Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and his home state of South Carolina, of which he was governor at the time.
During the campaign, he said, "All the laws of Washington and all the bayonets of the Army cannot force the Negro into our homes, our schools, our churches."
Thurmond's party ran under a platform that declared in part, "We stand for the segregation of the races and the racial integrity of each race."
