Phil Mushnick Says Under Jay-Z's Influence, the Brooklyn Nets May As Well be the "New York N------s"

Apparently, New York Post columnist Phil Mushnick does not think too highly of the Brooklyn Nets’ decision to let co-owner Jay-Z have input into his team. In his column today, Mushnick voiced his concerns about the new-look of the franchise and even imagined a possible future name for the team that might be a little more hip-hop. From the New York Post:

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!

Well then. It appears Mushnick has been brushing up on his rap lyrics. I don’t usually jump to call people or their actions racist, but I think this one might have gone just a few feet over the line. I have included a screen grab of the column below because I can’t imagine the Post doesn’t edit it in the near future. Or fire/suspend/reprimand Mushnick and the editor who decided the veteran columnist probably knew what he was doing.
