Detroit Tigers star Delmon Young was arrested in NYC this morning after allegedly screaming a bunch of anti-Semitic slurs at a man in a yarmulke ... and then fighting another dude.

According to the NY Post, 26-year-old Young was approached by a panhandler who appeared Jewish ... when the MLB star exploded in anger ... screaming, "F*cking Jews! F*cking Jews!"

Another man confronted Young ... and things reportedly got physical ... with Young allegedly scratching the guy and pushing him to the ground in the lobby of the Roosevelt Hotel.

I'd like to remind everybody that Judaism is not a race. People seem eager to drop the "R" bomb inappropriately.

LOL.. WOW! Sense he pulled a Mel Gibson no no that no one is allowed to lose their temper and get mad. I wonder if this dude will lose not only his place on the team, but his race card to get off for saying it as well.

Come on people, do you not see how stupid and lame all this $#!^ is getting to be?

There must be some mistake, I thought only white people were considered racist. What's this world coming to when a black man is accused of racism?

Delmon punched a (mexican?) pitcher named Jose Majares in the face when he was with the Twins. He also threw a baseball bat at a white umpire. He's not racist he hates everybody that isn't black. Blacks can't be racist they own the card. Delmon was just sticking up for the panhandler because the Jewish tourist's wouldn't give the poor panhandler any money. Sound familar? Money changers.
The owner of the Tigers is Jewish. Hitlerious!

what are we setting the bar for? if this is a "hate-crime", what's next,life sentences for schoolyard bullies?! i can tell you, that a whole bunch of groups in this country, that don't have clout and connections[including blacks],are called all sorts of terrible things, day in and day out;yet, they would not rise to the level of hate crime,[nor should they]. i'm not anti-semetic,however this does show, that the law is truly blind, in the worse sense of the word. and,that different groups are dealt with in a grossly uneven fashion.

It wouldn't be a normal day at TMZ if Harvey didn't apply all his resources to destroying somebody who said something bad about the Jews.

Where is the press outrage. Check out the 'mainstreak media" in the Martin incident, which by the way is unproven. If this had been a white person on a black person, the media trumpets and race baiters (you know who they are) would have trumped up march after march. Hate speech is despicable in any setting, but fair, just reporting is sorely missing intelevision and print outlets. How long will America continue to watch I(read)?
