It isn't worth the effort to try and change old people who are prejudiced when they're all just going to die soon and the problem will just resolve itself that way.

No, he's not taking it too seriously. Yeah, I watch a comedy to laugh, but Seinfeld was never one of those turn-your-brain-off shows.

Dude, the pilot and first season of this episode were on before you were born.


Elaine changed a bit too, I think. Her character got more and more mean-spirited as the series went on.
