...and we get to see that those on the other side of the Michael Richards story are just as reprehensible as he is.
With the help of an attack-dog shyster, the two men who were the recipients of Richards' racial abuse while he was doing a "comedy" act have decided that his admittedly feeble attempts to apologize haven't been good enough. Now, they want a face-to-face meeting so he can apologize again.
And they want money.
Yeah. Money will make it all better.
Richards has already expressed regrets on national television. He has also apologized to Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, neither of whom was anywhere near the comedy club where the incident occurred.
This is simply too much. It is racial guilt run amok.
The attempts to make Richards grovel and do continuing penance reveal the depth of racial hypocrisy in this nation. But it's not all festering in the minds of white people.
If Richards has to do community service in the black community (as one "activist" demands) has to prostrate himself in front of Jackson and Sharpton and has to pay his "victims" money, why is there no call for Jackson to continually apologize -- and pay restitution out of the fortune he has made as a racial extortionist -- for his own well-documented anti-white, anti-semitic comments? Why isn't Sharpton being held accountable for the lies he has uttered?
Simple. They are masters at playing the race card. Not for the betterment of any group, but to line their own pockets. And the white "liberals," who have fallen for this act, support and encourage them.
It's a bad, bad situation. On one side, you have fools like Richards and Mel Gibson. On the other, you have the professional victimizers like Jackson and Sharpton.
Between the two extremes, others like them and those who fear being branded as "racists" themselves should they call for common sense to prevail, the racial divide in this country will never be healed.
Of course if it ever is healed -- as the majority of Americans devoutly wish it could be -- Jackson, Sharpton and the rest of their ilk would be revealed as the unprincipled opportunists they are. What a wonderful thought....
I have more to say, but I'm off to find the last black guy who called me a "honky m*****f*****." He owes me some money, I think.
