You're a raaaabid anti, er, blackite!

So it turns out Kramer is horribly racist. Or at least the actor/comedian who played the famous Seinfeld character is. During a stand-up routine on Friday, Michael "Kramer" Richards was heckled by some African-American audience members and launched into a tirade that makes Mel Gibson's drunken ramblings seem like the keynote address at the annual conference of the Anti-Defamation League.

G-g-g-giddyup for white power.

TMZ has the video. Warning -- Richards drops about 20 N-bombs in two minutes. He drops N-bombs like he's going for the Guinness record. I would very much hope that this is not safe for your work. Maybe close your door or something.

Among the "highlights," he told the guys that "Fifty years ago, you'd be hanging upside down with a fuckin fork up your ass." He also said "I could have been a millionaire! I could have been a racist millionaire, Jerry!" Okay, I made one of those up.

But watch the tape -- you'll probably be blown away. Because it's Kramer...dropping N-bombs and F-bombs and screaming about lynchings. The word "surreal" is grossly overused nowadays, but it really does apply here.

I couldnt believe it when I saw it. As a Seinfeld fan, I didnt see this one coming. And its true, about 20 N-bombs in 30 seconds has to be a record.

It's weird, because people aren't freaking out about this as much as they did about Gibson, and this one was much worse. I would have expected him to announce rehab, a round on the morning talk shows, meetings with non-profit coalitions, etc. It could be because he's not as big of a star, or it could be how it came so suddenly out of left freaking field. It's almost literally unbelievable.
