Seinfeld’s Lost Episode

03Dec06

I haven’t read anything of note about the Michael Richards’s on-stage breakdown that really adds to our understanding of the event or its context. But this video, by National Lampoon, is astounding. It places the stand-up rant & his apology within the context of Seinfeld and its own odd treatment of race. Enjoy!

Update: I did stumble across some thoughtful comments on Richards’s rant – as always, Malcolm Gladwell has something interesting to say, particularly in comparing Richards to the last example of Hollywood hate speech, Mel Gibson.
