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.”
