Feuding community leaders smooch and make up
Our communities' leadership has to absorb the reality that the next generation of open-minded young people sees diversity as a plus, not as a burden to be overcome.
"My entire reputation has been damaged," the Rev. Eric P. Lee said Monday, little more than a week after Jewish philanthropist Daphna Ziman sent an irate e-mail calling him an anti-Semite to her friends and members of the media
The controversy that erupted last week over allegedly anti-Semitic remarks by a local pastor raises, appropriately enough for this time of year, four questions.
An email from prominent Jewish philanthropist Daphna Ziman, who is known for her work with Los Angeles social causes, is circulating rapidly because of its accusations that a black pastor at an event where she was being honored made harshly anti-Semitic remarks in a keynote address.
When the Westside chapter of the National Women's Political Caucus (NWPC- LA) gathered at the home of philanthropist Daphna Ziman in Beverly Hills on April 12 to announce the organization's formal endorsement of Sen. Hillary Clinton for president, it took just a few steps into the foyer to note Ziman's strong ties both to the Democratic Party and to Judaism.
