Charming

You head all about Michael Richards’ racist rant, did you not? But, did you see "the" video?

According to the YouTube description, and Fox News, he is:

Activist and
bookstore owner Dr. Kamau Kambon, who taught African Studies 241 in
the Spring 2005 semester at North Carolina State University.

You know what? I don’t care about his rant. Of course, as a white guy in this double-standard culture, I refrained from expressing that I didn’t care about Michael Richards, either.

I guess I’ll just keep on walkin’ on the egg shells around the brown skins. In case you think that’s a "remark," I’m married to one of them.

    The only way we, as a species, are going to get over the whole colour issue is if sensible people treat it as a non-issue, and treat everyone who does make a big deal about it like an idiot, which in my opinion is what they are. People are people, no matter the hue of their complexion.
    Those who say "Easy for you to say, you're white." belong with the idiots.

    Yet another racist idiot. The world's full of them. But I haven't heard him apologizing to white people for his remarks & that's the difference.

    I think that only when he was on stage was he truly speaking from the heart. All his apologizes are political.

    To me that's the funny thing about C-SPAN. I only know one person who watches it, sporadically.

    It's on all the time in offices in Washington, but you never actually hear someone say "You know what I saw on C-SPAN!!"

    Ubiquitous, but unseen – C-SPAN is the modern expression of Ellison's Invisible Man.

    (What I'm saying is that a person would only ever say something THAT BIZZARE on C-SPAN because ordinarily so few people would ever see it.)

    I'm sorry. Does that make it better, now?
