    Michael Richards: Freemason, Shriner, Racist

    EXCERPT -

    Michael Richards was initiated into Freemasonry on December 17, 1998, at the Riviera Lodge No. 780 in Pacific Palisades, California. In an interview ("Michael A. Richards, 33 Beyond the Symbols")[Internet Archive] with The Scottish Rite Journal of Freemasonry (Sept. 2003), Richards said his fascination with the Craft began in the early 60s. His mother had "had a friend who was a Mason … I didn't have a father, but he was like a father to me. He was very charitable with his time. On Friday nights he would take me to the American Legion Hall where some of the best vaudeville acts in the country were performed." After finding out his comedic idol Red Skelton was a mason, Richards decided to become one himself.

    In a previous article (Renaissance Man, Not "Kramer") from the September 2000 issue of the same official magazine for Scottish Rite Freemasonry, Richards said he had already been somewhat of an armchair Masonic philosopher before being initiated. He became "interested in the Craft from reading Manly Palmer Hall's The Secret [Teachings] of All Ages, Albert Pike's Morals and Dogma, and Albert Mackey's Symbolism of Freemasonry. So, when I met Red and found out about his strong ties to Freemasonry, I was very impressed. Morals and Dogma certainly introduced me to Scottish Rite philosophy, but it was through Red's lovable nature, Masonic and all, that I really wanted to be a Mason."

    The same article states that Michael Richards is also a member of the "Culver City-Foshay No. 467, the Southern California Research Lodge, and a Life Member of the Los Angeles Scottish Rite Valley as well as a Life Member of the Scottish Rite Research Society." In short, he knows his Masonic history, and is intimately involved with its research and preservation.

    The Great White Brotherhood

    Michael Richards is within the top echelon of Scottish Rite Masonry - a 33rd degree Sovereign Grand Inspector-General. At this level, he practices what has been described as White Masonry. What occultist and mystic Bro. C. W. Leadbeater, 33, identified as the "highest and last of the great sacramental powers of the Mysteries" (Freemasonry and Its Ancient Mystic Rites, p. 42). Thirty-third degree Masons, according to Leadbeater, channel the "Hidden Light from the White Lodge behind" (Leadbeater, 43). As an avid investigator, being a mystic and a voracious reader with an insatiable appetite, Richards is thoroughly familiar with this concept. Leadbeater, besides being a high-level Mason, was involved with Theosophy. Albert Pike had insinuated the teachings of black magician Eliphas Levi* into official Scottish Rite doctrine, while Leadbeater's corrupting influence had been Mme. Helena Petrovna Blavatsky. Hitler and the Nazi party were influenced by Blavatsky's teachings, especially her "Secret Doctrine" of evolving races (from inferiority to apotheosis). Blavatsky taught her disciples that the highest race was that of the Aryans, who were mystically directed from the Great White Lodge - or the Great White Brotherhood - into a state of perfection.

    I think all those words are funny when used as a part of a comedy act. But for these guys to say "cracker" and then claim they are offended by racial slurs is a bunch of crap. And when you heckle any comedian you know what he's going to do, he's going to make you part of his act if that's the way you want it.

    Besides he has done this before, he picked a couple of Jews out of the audience and started screaming that they killed Jesus, etc., and he's a Jew himself. I think the whole Seinfeld cast was.

    Some act. They said CRACKER after he went off. Besides, "cracker", like "redneck", is not racist. zg

    Either is nigger, depending on the context. In stand-up comedy it's not racist. It was black people who invented stand-up anyway, with the blackface minstrels.

    It's true, it was black Americans who invented modern music and modern comedy.

    A Look Back at Minstrelsy
    From Jessica McElrath,
    Your Guide to African-American History.
    http://afroamhistory.about.com/od/mi...minstrelsy.htm

    During the 19th century, it became a popular pastime to spend an evening at a minstrel theater. Minstrel entertainment was widespread in the Northern cities among immigrants, the unskilled, and it appealed to some in the middle and upper class. The early blackface minstrels were white performers who mimicked blacks. They colored their faces and used makeup to give the impression of big lips and large eyes. While it was entertainment, the main attraction for white audiences was that it was a declaration of white superiority.

    -------------

    Blackface
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackface

    Blackface is a style of theatrical makeup that originated in the United States, used to affect the countenance of an iconic, racist American archetype - that of the darky or coon. Blackface also refers to a genre of musical and comedic theatrical presentation in which blackface makeup is worn. White blackface performers in the past used burnt cork and later greasepaint or shoe polish to blacken their skin and exaggerate their lips, often wearing woolly wigs, gloves, tails, or ragged clothes to complete the transformation. Later, black artists also performed in blackface.

    Blackface was an important performance tradition in the American theater for over 100 years and was also popular overseas. Stereotypes embodied in the stock characters of blackface minstrelsy played a significant role in cementing and proliferating racist images, attitudes and perceptions worldwide. In some quarters, the caricatures that were the legacy of blackface persist to the present day and are a cause of ongoing controversy.

    Ah but they are leaving out an important detail: the white blackface performers were not doing comedy as we know it today. They were mostly morality plays, and the black guy was cast as an immoral guy. The black blackface performers were doing pure comedy and invented a lot of the techniques we are familiar with like sight gags and straight men (generally adressed as "Mr. Interloculator"). After the Civil War this all migrated over to vaudeville which is the root of most of what we consider to be entertainment these days.

    This all relates to blackjack in terms of riverboat law, because so many riverboat entertainers were slaves it was declared that no state law was to apply on boats underway on the Mississippi, hence state gambling laws not applying either. We have the blackfacers to thank not only for stand-up comedy, but for blackjack with bad pen. Thanks guys!
