Hey LB!

Gawd...I typed out a well thought out reply and then the AMAs started (I taped the show.) I did something stupid and lost my comment! :(

Anyway, let me try it again. I agree that he meant what he said. You don't repeat that epithet over and over unless you mean it.

He's been in the business long enough to know what he was doing WASN'T funny and wouldn't go over well. He was angry. He might have had a few drinks, so he might have been buzzed. He got angry and those who angered him were black and he let them have it, from his heart.

I do think that if he wants to change he can. I've changed my views of things over the years. The thing is he'll have to do something dramatic to turn around public opinion. I think it's possible, but saying he's sorry and making excuses isn't the way to do it.

Just how action got him into trouble, action will get him out of it.

When I saw and heard Richards on CNN, it was pure venom. I am totally convinced that he meant every word of what he said. I've read that some people think he was drunk, if this is true, then there is nothing like the "fake boldness" one gets from drinking too much to make some people say what they really feel.

To me, Richards will forever be remembered for his rant. I didn't buy his apology and frankly, how does anyone convert a stone cold racist to change how he/she feels? Who really knows when the heart changes? I don't.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks for your comment Vanessa.

I'm still processing the whole thing. I got a bulletin regarding it on MySpace this morning, but I didn't even open it to watch once I realized what was going on.

At first, I thought it was Michael Richards spoofing Gibson. Well, not quite.

I hope somoene answers his "call" because I know for sure there are a few people who when they think of him now, the last thing they think of his helping him.

I agree with you. I was so shocked to hear the words come from a person that I admired from afar. Michael Richards obviously has some serious issues with Blacks and perhaps others. That was definitely a cry for help.
