More November 22 in the news....

The fallout continues for the career of Seinfeld star Michael Richards after his outburst at two black men who heckled him onstage at a comedy club. It is also rumoured that the incident may have set back Jewish and African-American relations by about 20 minutes.

Michael Richards appeared on Letterman by video link and began explaining the "nasty things" said about "Afro-Americans," the audience couldn't help but chuckle at 'Kramer'. Jerry Seinfeld immediately scolded the crowd, saying "stop laughing, it ain't funny." But the crowd couldn't help themselves. It is reported that after this segment rap stars have so much 'whitey is racist' material that they intend to stop fighting each other for a few days and unite behind a common 'beef'. No word yet on how many times the Seinfeld theme will be sampled on Kramer diss tracks.
