Michael Richards: still not a Jew

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/television/article/michael_richards_still_not_a_jew_20061121

As Cosmo Kramer in "Seinfeld," Richards played one on TV. But he himself is not Jewish -- not that there's anything wrong with that.Richards lashed out a heckler at the Laugh Factory last Friday, spitting out the "N" word without humor and with abandon. Audience members booed, several walked out, then Richards himself walked off stage.Fellow comedians and fans have been quick to criticize Richards -- and misrepresent his religious background.
