    Phil Mushnicks racist rant in the NY Post

    Don’t rely on media to evaluate bad behavior

    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!
    “I guess I won’t need my color TV anymore now that the Nets will be wearing black and white,’’ writes reader John Lynch. And reader David Distefano now wonders what’s left for the Nets to choose as “their alternate third-uniform to sell during
    nationally televised games.”

    As for the charges against me, I am unconcerned. I am beyond their timid lying morality, and so I am beyond caring.

    Phil Mushnick, NY Post Writer: Jay-Z is the Racist, Not Me
    Fri, May. 04, 2012 Posted: 02:27 PM EDT
    A New York Post columnist, Phil Mushnick, has come under fire for an article published Friday, May 4, in which he used racial and sexist epithets to describe rapper Jay-Z and the newly minted Brooklyn Nets. He responded to the backlash today.

    "I don't call black men the N-word; I don't regard young women as b----es and whores; I don't glorify the use of assault weapons and drugs. Jay-Z, on the other hand…..Is he the only NBA owner allowed to call black men N---ers?" Mushnick emailed to BobsBlitz.com.

    http://global.christianpost.com/news...-not-me-74399/

    The controversy started when Mushnick attempted to lambast Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, a minority owner of the Nets with 1.5 percent of the team, for the new "urban" logo, which uses only black and white. In addition, Mushnick attacked the Nets for allowing the influential rapper to be part of their marketing decisions, saying they might as well call themselves the "New York N-----s."

    "Why [be] the Brooklyn Nets when they can be the New York N-----s? The cheerleaders could be the Brooklyn B---hes or H-s. Team logo? A 9 mm with hollow-tip shell casings strewn beneath," he wrote.

    "Wanna be Jay-Z hip? Then go all the way!" Mushnick added. The sports columnists also cited the sentiments of many, who were less than impressed with the monochromatic design.

    The public is outraged by the blatant racial overtones in the column, and- although it could have been an ultimately misguided and poorly received satire- many are calling for him to be fired.

    "That's an unfortunate final column," tweeted Darin Gantt in response to the article.

    Others posted that Mushnick "seems to have gone full Imus," and was "inappropriate, offensive, racist, [and] oblivious" while referring to the column.

    The "oblivious" quote is especially relevant, as Jay-Z is known not only for his emceeing prowess, but for his multiple successful business ventures, including his marketing skills. He founded clothing line Rocawear along with music mogul Damon Dash and owns several "40/40 Club" sports bars.

    He is also the co-brand director for Budweiser Select, where he assists with marketing and advertising- a part of his resume that not only makes Mushnick's claim baseless, but confusing.

    His claim that Carter "profits from the worst and most sustaining self-enslaving stereotypes of black-American culture" are especially irrelevant to Jay-Z, who- after the January birth of his daughter Blue Ivy- has vowed to stop using the word b---- in an effort to uplift African-American people.

    New York Post editors had no issue with the article being published as it was, according to BobsBlitz.com.

    Sounds like one of those Fox News guys who's always so angry that people, and a particular group of people if you know what I mean, sometimes swear and talk about sex. Oh, and there's more violence in real life than there is on these records. But let's not worry about that...

    He and Bill O'Reilly are going to spontaneously combust one day if they don't get the stick out of their collective butt.
    Oh, I know very well how I got my name

    This is not surprising, Phil Mushnick always had such views.

    Jay's marketing decisions couldn't be based on his extremely successful marketing company translation could it?!?! I guess even with clients like Mcdonalds, Chevy, Johnson & Johnson and Budweiser a successful black man is still just a n****r to this fool
