NY Post Columnist Makes Racist Remarks Towards Jay-Z & Brooklyn Nets

A writer named Phil Mushnick says that the Nets should call themselves the "New York N-----s" because of Hov's involvement.

After Jay-Z unveiled the new black-and-white logo for the Brooklyn Nets, NY Post writer Phil Mushnick has some sharp words to share about his ownership of the team.

In an article posted earlier today, Mushnick framed the ownership in a racist context, stating that “as long as the Nets are allowing Jay-Z to call the marketing shots, […] why not have him apply the full Jay-Z treatment?”

Mushnick then said that the Nets should rename themselves to reflect Hov’s lyrics. “Why the Brooklyn Nets when they can be the New York N------s? The cheerleaders could be the Brooklyn B----hes or Hoes. Team logo? A 9 mm with hollow-tip shell casings strewn beneath. Wanna be Jay-Z hip? Then go all the way!”

Mushnick issued a statement to Village Voice's James King about the article, offering a cursory explanation of his original article.

"James - did you actually read what I wrote and what I've been writing for 30 years? I don't call black men niggas; my kids never heard the word until folks such as Jay-Z came along. I'd suggest you talk to him about it. What I wrote today was on Jay Z's artistry, and only the wishful and foolish would so badly misinterpret and mischaracterize it as you plan to do. Thanks - mushnick."
