Are you defending his actions?
If it was a black man calling a white man trailer trash, or a honky, this would not make it in the news? I strongly believe if Chris Rock lashed out
in this manner at anyone
, it would make the news.
Anything that pertains to stars and is racially motivated, would certainly make the headlines. Mel Gibson's drunken tirade was in the headlines, or
is that no different because it was against the Jewish population?
Just come out and say it, whites are the real victim here.
I'll agree that a slight double standard may exist, but I completely disagree with the rest of your post.

More power? Sure hecklers can be a pain in the ass for people in this profession, but why was the color of his skin the first thing Richards had to
notice? He could of lashed out in hundreds of different ways, and had the support of others. But when he decides to bash the hecklers for the color
of their skin, he is dead wrong.
They were hecklers who happened to be black, not black hecklers.
