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.

What an ignorant moron! Being black, his stupidity is upped to a moron, squared!
Doesn't this smug jock know that if it weren't for all "those Jews".. that supported & joined blacks in the civil rights movement... he & his family wouldn't be enjoying the rights he so easily takes for granted today. I hope his momma is proud of her son.. him being a black man that's a bigot. How sad.. & shameful!

Can you imagine if it were an athlete jew calling a panhandler "f'ing black"? Al Sharpton would already be organizing a march somewhere and heads would be rolling.

The blaque moron tackled someone, that's battery. Perhaps instead of hating on the Jews, he should emulate them, like cherish education instead of disdaining it. Stay ignorant and remain a slave,really man, baseball?
