Dear Jesse Jackson,

Nigger please.

Kramer does something racist and stupid, and all of Hollywood is supposed to stop using “derogatory expressions” in their work? Bull and shit. Here’s a newsflash Jesse. Black people and white people use the word “nigger” all the time. And if you’re a writer on a show like The Wire or Brotherhood, you absolutely need that word in your repertoire in order to sound authentic. It’s called art, Jesse. And it’s supposed to mirror society. Now go and put your time and energy towards something that actually fucking matters.

Jackson demands racial slur ban

Racial slurs should be banned from TV and film, US civil rights leader Jesse Jackson has said following the row involving Seinfeld’s Michael Richards.

Reverend Jackson will meet with TV and film executives to discuss banning the use of derogatory expressions.

“We want to give our ancestors a Christmas present,” he said.

Last week Richards, who played Kramer in the sitcom, was forced to apologise after racially abusing two hecklers during his comedy show in Los Angeles.

Anger management

Richards appeared on TV’s The Late Show with David Letterman and Rev Jackson’s own radio programme, Keep Hope Alive.

The comedian denied being a racist and claimed he was provoked by “humiliation”. He has since started anger management therapy.

Richards’ former co-star Jerry Seinfeld condemned the incident.

But Rev Jackson, who had condemned the outburst as “hateful” and “sick”, is now calling on members of the public to boycott sales of the seventh series of Seinfeld.

Footage of Richards’ outburst at the Laugh Factory venue was caught on a camera phone. It eventually ended up on the TMZ.com entertainment website.
