The two men who were directly insulted by Michael Richards’ racist burst last week have reportedly asked for money as a compensation for the offenses he brought them, according to their lawyer.
It all makes sense now. All the commotion, all the hullaballoo, all for a shot at the money. While I can't say I didn't expect it, its still shocking when the motive comes through clear as day.
"It's not enough to say 'I'm sorry,' " Gloria Allred, their attorney said.
"He went after them. He singled them out and he taunted them, and he did it in a closed room where they were captive."
Ooh, the poor poor men were captive! Captive in a room where they left shortly after making notes on how best they could fleece a washed-out comedian.
This is what happens when white guilt lets people get away with ridiculous shit. The same principle applies to male guilt, except that blacks were actually oppressed. One other thing we have to see is whether hurt emotions are enough for a judgement and reparations now. If it turns out that, yes, you do get money for being offended and complaining about it if you're a member of so-and-so group with lots of political clout, we will have a great situation on our hands. We all know the other "minority" which has lots of real-life political clout and is conditioned for thousands of years to complain long and bitterly so that a saviour may come and save them.
Yep, you guessed right - women.
