    Yoel Marcus's ingrained secualr hatred of Shas has led him to completely to misundertand the import of Rav Yosef's remarks. Ashkenazi Charedi schools have long had quotas for sephardim. This has led to much friction between the two ethnic groups which rightly or wrongly boiled over in the Emmanuel case. As Marcus noted, Rav Yosef's progeny have all attended Ashkenazi institutions. Seciondly, there are no Askenazim beating the doors down to get into Sephardi schools. His staement has to be seen in that light. What he is trying to do is help out his Askenazi colleagues by instructing his follwoers to go to Sephardi schools. rather than attempt to get into Askenazu schools, This will lessen the cries of Ashkenazi racism among the Sephardim and take the spotlight off of Askenazi charedi bigottry.
