NY Post's Phil Mushnick Uses N-Word In Critique Of Nets, Jay-Z
Says rap mogul’s team should be named “New York N*ggas”
Earlier this week we learned that George Zimmerman made disparaging remarks about Mexicans and women on an old MySpace page.
Today, New York Post columnist Phil Mushnick has disparaged rapper Jay-Z, the Brooklyn Nets, and its cheerleaders with a few “off-color” comments.
Apparently, Mushnick’s disapproval at the way the Nets have marketed their move to Brooklyn warranted his use of racial slurs, stereotypes and misogynistic language.
From “Equal Time,” Mushnick’s TV/Radio column:
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!
Many non-black writers will argue that they should be able to use the “n-word” and other references to rap song lyrics, since the subjects of their commentary do.

Do you think Mushnick should be disciplined for taking his opinion of the Nets new logo and colors too far?
