The people you are talking about are not Sephardim the great majority of them are Mizrahi. The finest Sephardic minds were of Spanish @ Portugese descent, our most famous one of course being Maimonides,plus many more,sadly the Rabbis of today are not educated to the correct standard they should be.
32. There is a good Russian proverb:
Vladimir ,   Yerushalayim   (02.04.13)
Two high boots - a pair. The real nature of Bennet is exposed. It's not accidental that he is was thrown out of Likud. He is Lapid with kipa. He has no problem making an alliance with the leftist Yesh Atid as they have the mutual objectives: to stamp out real Judaism, to destroy the world of yeshivot, to blur the difference between the Jews and non-Jews. Shame on you, Bennet! You are making friends with a person who refused to wear a kipa even at his father's funeral.

Your definition is correct in respect of Sephardim and Mizrahim. It is equally so of Ashkanazim which means German, most are not. The term Sephardim and Ashkanazim is just a general term to distinguish those that follow the ruling of Maran or the Rema in terms of halacha. I would agree there is none like the Rambam, but then he was special even then. There have been many great Rabbi's in all communities since then though, even if they do not match the Rambam. And by the way all Jews are really Mizrahim , because we are all of middle eastern source. It is just persecution that drove us out to other countries, such as Bavel and Spain, Eastern Europe, North Africa and elsewhere.
