Delmon Young

Pleads GUILTY

After Anti-Semitic Slur

Detroit Tigers star -- and World Series failure -- Delmon Young has pled "guilty" to aggravated harassment after shouting an anti-Semitic slur at a panhandler earlier this year ... and tackling another person to the ground.

Delmon was arrested for the incident in NYC in April -- when he was approached by a Jewish-looking panhandler (whatever that means) outside a hotel, and shouted, "F**king Jews! F**king Jews!"

Delmon was confronted by another person on the street after shouting the slur, and the baseball star tackled the man ... who then called 911. Cops showed up and arrested Delmon for aggravated harassment.

Delmon has now pled "guilty" as part of a plea deal -- in which he was sentenced to perform 10 days community service, and participate in a hate crime program at the Museum of Tolerance in NYC.

If he completes everything, Delmon will be allowed to withdraw his "guilty" plea to "aggravated harassment" -- and plead to just "harassment" instead, a lesser infraction.

Good thing he's black because if a white guy had said something like that about blacks he would have been kicked out of baseball. Racism is alive in all skin colors.

**** NAZI ZIONISTS. What's the problem? Our founding fathers warned us about those evil money lenders. Zionists have been hated all throughout human history for doing what they're doing to the USA and their terrorist acts in the middle east and especially their NAZI tactics against the Palestinians. **** Nazi Zionism.

If you are going to yell "F**king" anything at someone it should be "F**king whitey". That way its OK.

You had to be wrong with that racist comment. I know times are hard but a F**king poor and homeless New York Jew is just not applicable. If you're poor and a homeless looking Jew, you're not a Jew.
