Another Hollywood chump.
That apology came out for one reason only: Seinfeld and Larry David must have torn him a new one about pulling this stunt right before the Season 7 DVD was released.
The way I look at it is this: it's one thing to drop an n-bomb accidentally if you're worked up. Not acceptable, but forgiveable, just like dropping an f-bomb in front of your mom. But he went KKK. You don't pull out that kind of filth accidentally. The hatred he spouted reflects an embarassment of the causcasian race: intolerance to the point of violence. He embarassed white people everywhere by bringing this biggotry back up.
The lynching days are a part of history that I (as a white man) find offensive and embarassing. They shaped views about our kind that have been hard to over come.
So I think that the hate is in him, but Jerry must have really laid into him about the financial repercussions. You could tell that Jerry would have wiped his hands clean of Kramer had all the DVDs already been released.
