I don't think Larry will be bothered by Kramer. He is more the offender than the offendee.

Michael Richards, Cosmo Kremer, ruined my love for the show. His racist, bigotry tirade at a LA nightclub was so disgraceful, I regret ever delivering a newspaper to Seinfeld's old house in Massapequa.

You regret that? Jerry Seinfeld had nothing to do with Michael Richard's rant.

I don't condone it...it was disgusting BUT..I think he was having (or had) a breakdown. After Seinfeld he did alot of nothing-and that could do it if you aren't 'together' to begin with.

Michael Richards is not a Jew.

As Cosmo Kramer in "Seinfeld," Richards played one on TV. But he himself is not Jewish -- not that there's anything wrong with that.
Fellow comedians and fans have been quick to criticize Richards -- and misrepresent his religious background. Comedian Paul Rodriquez held a press conference at the Laugh Factory, saying that Richards should know better, because the Hollywood community defended Jews against actor Mel Gibson's anti-Semitic tirades.

The implication was that Richards, a Jew, should not be launching racist attacks. He shouldn't, but he also isn't Jewish.

"Someone needs to tell Rodriquez that Michael isn't a Jew," said a television director who has known Richards for years. The two worked together in 1980 on ABC's "Fridays" television show and have remained in touch ever since.

The actor was raised with no specific religious tradition. "He does not have Jewish blood," said New York publicist Howard Rubenstein, who Richards retained to help manage his PR nightmare.

In a telephone interview, Rubenstein clarified that Richards was not born Jewish and never converted to Judaism. "He believes in Judaism, and that's what he's adopted for himself," said Rubenstein.

According to traditional Jewish law, a Jew is any person whose mother was a Jew or any person who has gone through the formal process of conversion to Judaism.

A biography of Richards on the Wikipedia web site lists no religion, but does say Richards is very involved in the Masons. Masonry is not a religion but Masons do subscribe to a set of ethical precepts.

Richards was born in Culver City to Phyllis (nee Nardozzi), a medical records librarian. He was raised by Nardozzi and William Richards, an electrical engineer.

You cannot be a Jew 'by association'.

Be careful who you call a putz, Putz!

Tough talk for a shabbes klopper schmendrick nudnik. I saw that article too and there are plenty others debunking it. Be careful of the sources you quote. Schmuck.
You're an unmitigated a--ss ho-le. He said he wasn't Jewish in an interview. I saw it.
Why does he have to be Jewish - so important to you. Also must be important to you that Bernard Madoff is Jewish and Elliot Spitzer is Jewish. Schmuck? Me? Not me.
So...go play with your schmuck-I doubt anyone else is, that's if you can find it.
