NY Post columnist Phil Mushnick’s racist remarks toward Jay-Z helping out with the new Brooklyn Nets logo and marketing are still causing an uproar and have yet to be pulled. I’m actually pretty surprised they have not done so. Here’s what he said:
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
*I’ll admit I didn’t think twice about copping this hat after I spotted it at my local Lids.
Read Phil’s statements defending his stance after the jump and let us know what you think in the comments…
“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.”
