Racist Jay-Z article via the New York Post

According to The Guardian, the New York Post‘s Phil Mushnick is in the hot seat after posting the following article on May 4. It is in response to Jay-Z’s hand in designing the new Brooklyn Nets uniforms:

Nets on Jay-Z track
“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!”

Mushnick defended the statement, saying, “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.”
