Who knew?

I was surprised to read of the latest developments surrounding “Kramer” and his racist diatribe.

Bosses at the Los Angeles comedy club where former Seinfeld star Michael Richards shocked fans with a racist rant have demanded the comedian pay $1 million to charity for every one of the 'N' words he used on stage. Richards has been banned from The Laugh Factory for repeatedly calling two African-American hecklers "n**gers" during a foul-mouthed rant onstage there earlier this month. The comedy club bosses now want him to pay for his ill-advised remarks. The comedian has publicly apologized for his comments and appeared on African-American civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson's radio show Keep Hope Alive on Sunday in an effort to make amends.

I can’t tell you how absolutely appalled I was when reading that story. Of all the outrageous things I’ve ever heard, that has to take the cake. I mean, the Rev. Jesse Jackson has a radio show?

Who knew?
