NY Post columnist Phil Mushnick racist rant against Jay Z

From NY Post Phil Mushnick’s Friday 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!” Twitter has been ablaze today with reaction to this racist rant. What do you think should happen to Mushnick?

    I can’t even be the least bit upset by what Mushnick said. What words has he used that Jay-z hasn’t used in talking about African Americans and women in his songs? Isn’t this a case of ‘live by the sword die by sword’? Doubt highly J will be too upset; too busy counting his millions.

    Wow, toosharp hit the nail right on the head. He read my mind before I even got here! I got nothing useful to add.

    Yes i agree with him because jay-z has a beat behind the word it makes it Ok?….i’m black & i’m fed up with how its being thrown around these days…i can’t walk down the block without hearing it ……because he’s white he’s a racist?…Mushnick is trying to point out how negative the word is in society as an whole (bitches & hoes….doesn’t jay-z use those words also)….the real racist kkk,aryan nation & other groups are laughing at us for using a word they love to call Black people in a derogatory way…….

  • While the words were harsh, certainly not poetic, they ring more of a grumpy old man who is lamenting his good old days while reciting the age-old “the world is going to hell in a hand basket and this generation is leading the way”, mantra than one of a hardened racist.
    In the meanwhile, Jay-Z is going to have to deal with a new reality: Build your empire by romanticizing the lyrical vernacular of the ghetto-life, and every now and then, the chickens are going to come home to roost–just to remind you.
