It Takes Reggie Jackson All of Two Minutes to Rip on A-Rod and the Jewish People
Well, Mr. October, Reggie Jackson, did not follow the golden rule recently, and was caught on tape by the New York Post. What is caught on tape below is the camera man asking him "why he said that" and then Jackson asking him if he's "Jewish too". Not good, Reg. Not good. Then, Mr. O tells the cameraman (:44) to make sure and let everyone know that he's with his daughter, not his girlfriend, because "he's not A-Rod".
See, this is ironic too, because at the 1:56 mark Jackson talks about keeping relationships with other ladies quiet and on the down low. In other words, the majority of the videotape is a full-fledged nightmare for Jackson. There's nothing particularly damning or hateful about his Jewish remark, but it does seem to perpetuate a stereotype, and I think we all know how those go over.
But, hey, at least there won't be an abundance of media people looking for stories in New York this weekend.
