A black leader in New York distanced himself from remarks made by a close associate that were seen as anti-Semitic. The Rev. Al Sharpton, in an interview with The New York Times, said a story told by the Rev. Charles Norris that he was fired from a job by Jews was “insensitive.” For his part, Norris also told the paper that he was sorry for offending people and that he has “no problem with Jews.”
