“New York Post” writer Phil Mushnick calls Jay-Z a racist.
“New York Post” writer Phil Mushnick generated a boatload of controversy when he stated that Jay-Z’s Brooklyn Nets should change their name to the ‘New York Ni**ers.’ Mushnick also said that the cheerleaders should be called “bitches.” Mushnick is not backing off his statement and has also called out many as hypocrites.
Reports from Uptown Magazine claims:
“As long as the Nets are allowing Jay-Z to call their marketing shots— what a shock that he chose black and white as the new team colors to stress, as the Nets explained, their new ‘urban’ home— why not have him apply the full Jay-Z treatment? 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!”
Writing in to the Post‘s “Bob’s Blitz” in response the inevitable criticism, Mushnick fanned the flames even higher by saying that people should take a look at who is really insulting the Black community:
“Such obvious, wishful and ignorant mischaracterizations of what I write are common. I don’t call black men the N-word; I don’t regard young women as bitches and whores; I don’t glorify the use of assault weapons and drugs. Jay-Z, on the other hand…..Is he the only NBA owner allowed to call black men N—ers?”
Jay-Z profits from the worst and most sustaining self-enslaving stereotypes of black-American culture and I’M the racist? Some truths, I guess, are just hard to read, let alone think about. (Same column I provide support for Amar’e Stoudemire at a time when everyone in town is ripping him to shreds. That was my LEAD, too, but what does that matter?)
