Basketball Coach Fired for "antisemitic" statements.... And I am sad about it

The JTA reports that Michael Ray Richardson's contract will not be renewed because of his comments about gays and Jews. [See my earlier post on this.]

I was sad when I read the news. The guy probably doesn't know what hit him. Richardson thought he was saying something nice about Jews and boasting about hiring a "big-time" Jewish lawyer and here he got fired....

His comments were informed or shaped by antisemitism. There is no doubt about that. The problem is that he doesn't know that... What he needs is an education. He probably won't get that now.
