Does This Mean Michael Richards is a Racist?

I don't think it does.

Should he have pulled out the "n" word? Ah, no... that was stupid. But this *is* a comedy club, for crying out loud. There is terribly offensive stuff hurled at the the audience every single day at these clubs. You gotta check your offended-o-meter at the door.

To the self-important idiot who was yelling at Michael Richards: Suck it up, Alice. If you don't like when your particular diverse group is dis'ed, then drop the double standard and don't scream the word "cracker" at him.

Michael Richards later apologized, which should be enough to put it behind him but I'm sure it won't make any difference:

UPDATE: Upon re-watching the apology on Letterman, I must say that it is almost more awkward than the original meltdown. And Richards loses points in my book for trying to somehow blame his rage on Katrina and Bush. Just say you're sorry and shut up.
