Way Out Of Line: New York Post Writer Phil Mushnick Suggests 'Brooklyn Nets' Be Named 'New York N*ggers' Because Of Jay-Z Affiliation

 

As sad as it may be some people can't get over the fact that an African American is part owner of a major sports franchise in the year 2012. That fact was made very clear in an article by New York Post writer Phil Mushnick, who attacked Jay-Z in his "Equal Time" column printed Friday [April 4].

 

Jay-Z is a minority owner of the New Jersey Nets, who will become the Brooklyn Nets in 2013 when they leave Jersey for the brand new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

In the article Mushnick uses racist and misogynistic language to describe Jay-Z and the team.

 

"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?" Mushnick wrote. "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!"

What's your take on Mushnick's rant? Should he be fired?

Here is my question to you. Is it only wrong if things like this are only thought but not spoken or said in the "right" environment? If you say yes you are just as bad. We all have our opinions and many of you talk about other races all of the time or have at some point. I do not agree with his opinions, however he has freedom of speech just like any of you would argue for if you expressed an opinion someone did not agree with. This is only going to boost Jay-Z's reputation. It will not hurt him. He did not call the Nets n****** nor did he call Jay one. He was wrong in his approach to getting his point across to people, but he should be fine and deal with the backlash, not fired. Women owner have and will go through the same thing. Are you going to defend them as well.

New York Post is owned by Rupert Murdoch, who also owns Fox Shnooze--who also owns my local paper, btw!!!
Howard Stern was fined for much less. Cons always get away with murder.

"I will have to watch for sure. They are the perfect couple - in love, both in hip hop and in NYC. If those years Remy spent in prison didn't break them up, I don't think this show can. Make that money, Remy."
