Michael Richard's 'defense' speech. Kramer from Seinfeld........ EDITED
This was posted on the page of a 'friend' on his FB page this morning. I did not realize he felt this way, until I read his words, which are in green.
***EDITED TO ADD: It has been determined, more than once, that the words below are not the actual words of Michael Richards. ******
"PROUD TO BE WHITE"
I have been wondering about why Whites are racists, and no other race is.... I dont want to offend any one but i am REALLY CURRIOUS!!!!!!
Proud to be White
Michael Richards makes his point........................
Michael Richards better known as Kramer from TVs Seinfeld does make a good point.
This was his defense speech in court after making racial comments in his
comedy act. He makes some very interesting points...
Someone finally said it. How many are actually paying attention to this? There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc.
And then there are just Americans.
You say that whites commit a lot of violence against other races or nationalities.. so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?
You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day. You have Black History Month. You have Cesar Chavez Day. You have Yom Hashoah. You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi. You have the NAACP. You have BET.
If we had WET (White Entertainment Television), we'd be racists. If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists. If we had White History Month, we'd be racists. If we had any organization for only whites to 'advance' OUR lives, we'd be racists.
We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce. Wonder who pays for that??
A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant.
If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships.. You know we'd be racists.
There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US .... Yet if there were 'White colleges', that would be a racist college.
In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.
You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists. You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.
I am proud...... But you call me a racist.
Why is it that only whites can be racists??
There is nothing improper about this status update..... Let's see which of you are brave enough to send it on. I sadly don't think many will. That's why we have LOST most of OUR RIGHTS in this country. We won't stand up for ourselves!
BE PROUD TO BE WHITE! Be proud to be an American!!!! It's not a crime YET... but getting very close!
Let the flaming begin!!!!! or how about a Logical Discussion instead....
