In his playing days, Carlton was anti-press and not very fond of autograph collectors but has mellowed with age.

Sure thing....dodge until I see it. The way I read it the OP asked a legitimate question and didn't give an opinion of a person or company.

LOL, I guess this begs the question, can one be an Anti-Semite, without being a racist and visa versa?

I think I know the answer and nearly all the possible responses, but let the chicken and the egg scenarios begin.

I apologize ahead of time for stirring up sh*t in this thread.

I would say absolutely. Judaism is not a race. Additionally, what would prevent someone who is Jewish from being intolerant of someone who is Asian, Black, Latino etc.?

Well, I usually don't do that, so no worries here.

To me the question came across as odd, since I wasn't aware of any controversy. I suppose someone running across that old article might have questions. It just seemed odd at first.
