There are benefits to taking a photo with someone who disgusts you ... just ask the model who snapped a shot with Donald Sterling over the weekend ... because ever since the pic went public, her career is BLOWING UP!!!
Jasmine Tosh Stewart tells TMZ ... she's been contacted by three different modeling agencies ever since TMZ Sports posted the photo she took with Sterling at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills ... right after he blew off his interview with Barbara Walters.
Jasmine says she's gained a thousand followers on Instagram and seen traffic to her blog double in the last few days. She admits she has Sterling to thank for her new-found attention and is quick to say how nice he was to take the photo with her.
That said, Jasmine tells us, "I still think he's a racist."
