Son of Shas spiritual leader used racial slur in attack on budget cuts

Before the agreement with Shas was made, David Yosef, the son of Shas' guru, made an extremely disgusting crack, taking out his anger in a very vulgar way over the budget matters:
The son of a prominent rabbi used a racial slur Sunday to attack the government for not earmarking enough money for religious institutions.

“If we’re talking about the sports budget, there is plenty of money to bring a few Cushim to play basketball, but when its a budget for synagogues or ritual baths, there’s nothing,” Rabbi David Yosef said, employing a Hebrew epithet for black people that is considered by some to be the local equivalent of the “n-word.”

Yosef, the son of Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, made his remarks at a ceremony marking the opening of an large new ritual bath, or mikvah, in Jerusalem’s Har Nof neighborhood.

David Yosef is the official rabbi of the mostly ultra-Orthodox neighborhood on the capital’s western edge.

During the ceremony, Yosef claimed that ultra-Orthodox “are class-D citizens, and don’t count anymore.”
Well duh, that's because their form of education teaches them to be by living on welfare and thinking that being poor in all instances is fine.

Thank goodness he didn't use the actual n-slur. But his sick comment is still inexcusable and throughly inappropriate for someone who's supposed to be teaching love and respect for everybody even of different skin color. It's stupefying how a man whose Sephardic ancestors struggled for survival on a continent where they, just like blacks, faced persecution from Islamofascists would say such a nasty thing. I have no idea if he's apologized for it, but he most definitely should.
