First, we are dealing with one Hasidic court out of many, Slonim. Indeed, there are Sephardim for whom Ashkenazim are out of bounds, both in the "way they pray", as well as their approach to Halachah. And, for the record, there are Edot that discourage marrying outside their own circles, so . . . Are you going to go to the High Court to force Gruzenis to marry out of their group, or, Kavkazis, for that matter. Is that Racism?! The fact is except for Hasidei Slonim, there are more Ashkenazi Haredi schools where Sephardic children learn than not. It would seem that in his attempt to discredit any kind of Traditional Judaism, he chooses to hit it where it most extreme, ignoring the vast majority of Haredim who pay their taxes, and, even support the State of Israel in spite of its faults.
