You think racism doesn’t exist?

You think people aren’t prejudice?

You think racial stereotypes are a thing of a past?

You don’t think the white man smiling in your face couldn’t be calling you a nigger soon as you walk away?

You think because of your status you are immune to be called a nigger, ho or bitch?

Are you the one who asks why race is always brought into the discussion?

This may change your thought process………….

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.”

Jay Z is more of a professional than Phil Mushnick will ever be and if Mushnick is bold enough to put this in print what do you think he says about Jay Z, Trayvon Martin or his black colleagues in private?

He should fired immediately.

He says it so casually that you know this is common speak for him when he thinks about rappers or black men who doesn’t fit into what he believes a black man should act like.

I don’t know if he is racist, but that is one of the most racist pieces I have seen published ever. The fact he is so flippant about ir bothers me.  I know he doesn’t like Jay Z and this was his pathetic attempt at sarcasm, but he shouldn’t be allowed to get away with it.

Of course he will say he was joking and he has plenty of black friends.

I for one, don’t find anything funny about New York Niggers or Brooklyn Hoes and if he isn’t fired, The NY Post will be sure to hear about from me personally.

It doesn’t even matter if he is white.  If a black or Hispanic writer said this, I would be calling for their firing as well.

I rarely call for any journalist to be fired, I understand that in this field it is about opinions and the more controversial they are the bigger star you can become (see: Skip Bayless), but there has to be a certain line you can’t cross.

Mushnick and his editor didn’t just cross the line, they crossed it, spit on it and stand in defiance of it.

Because what are we going to do?

We are just a bunch of Niggers right?

    He’s spouting this vile garbage, but is outraged by Delmon Young’s comments? What a pile of shit.

    The New York Yankees where black and white uniforms but I dont see him calling Derek Jeter a Bronx Nigger or his female fans Bronx Bitches. I don’t see him talking about how the Yankees are respresenting violence or ghettoness by wearing black and white outfits that appear more to the urban asthetic (after all NYC is an URBAN environment. It sure as heck isn’t a suburb or a rural area). So why the name calling and racial slur slangin when Jay Z tries the same marketing approach for his team? Of course, Jay Z is black and it just pisses that racist Mushnick off that a black man is rich enouigh to OWN a sports team and call the shots. What does Jay Z’s music have to do with his marketing strategy for his team? He clearly knows how to separate his artistic expressions from his business/professional vewntures so why is it so hard for bone head Mushnick to see that? Jay Z has never referred to his team or the Nets organization as Niggas or hoes so why would this idiot, other than being a racist, imply that.

      jay-z doesn’t own the Nets… Mikhail Prokhorov does.

      • Slime Shady says:

        yeah . the russians hate black people with a passion.your’e better off with an american. we hate mexicans more.

    • Old Navy says:

      Hello, since when are the Yankee uniforms black and white? The Yankees uniforms have been the same colors for years. They are one of the few teams in sports that hasn’t changed their uniform look. Take a closer look.

  3. vbabygirl says:

    I meant ‘wear’ not ‘where’

  4. Honestly says:

    Phil Mushnick is a typical brainless cave n!@@er. This country was founded on the tenets of racism by these mayonnaise monkeys. These neanderthal apes should have never been let out of the caves of Europe.

    • Slime Shady says:

      huh? this country was founded on white people working hard and smart.
      We counldn;t have achieved much if we were all going “oonga boonga” on a set of bongos now could we?

  5. DNAgenes says:

    Hey Trey D. how did copy the highlighted portion to the link with your own wording?

  6. E.Williams says:

    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…….

    • Mai says:

      Amen, I sick of black folks getting out of shape when white folks say Nigger, so! Mexicans and Asians sat it all the time in both languages are they racists? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that word is never going to go away! What applies for Phil Mushnick should apply to JayZ. Like my grandmother use to say, “Everybody that looks like you aren’t your friends and everybody that doesn’t look like you is not your enemy”

    • Slime Shady says:

      yeah. You niggers aren’t too bright.
      Learn a lesson from americans. being united you will accomplish great things.If you fight amongst yourself you’ll be like those Taleban fools. Wondering the desert with an ak and not much else.

  7. 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.

  8. cxd says:

    AMEN. To all of your comments.

  9. FrankieB says:

    Another black know-nothing who didn’t even bother to learn what the “N” word was used in reference to. Mushnick has been on the sneaker and rap companies for 20 years. And now some doofus on some ‘black sports blog’ shoots his mouth off without knowing the facts.

    You want to worry about the “N” word, go after the rappers.

    I take it the author of the above rant is aware Mushnick is still publishing at The Post and will be long after this blog disappears.

    • Slime Shady says:

      yeah I agree.
      you look like a decent person but remember the story of the little boy who cried nigger.

  10. Dirk Hardpeck says:

    Robert, for being the CEO and President of this little site, you really need to proofread what you write. I’ve seen better composed rants on Yahoo! News posts. Seriously, if you want anyone to take your threats/complaints seriously, act and type like a CEO and not, well…

  11. Mike Hunt says:

    Wait! Chris Rock coined the phrase.
    On one of his SNL skits he talks about the Washington Redskins, and how it’s a racial slur. He said “That’s like having a team called the New York Niggers”
    if you can find it you will collapse on the floor with laughter.

  12. Slime Shady says:

    yo yo

  13. Slime Shady says:

    Robert , it’s not “a bunch of niggers” it’s “A whole mess o’ niggers”

  14. Slime Shady says:

    Robert you should see past the racial vernacular (btw it’s pretty hypocritical getting outraged at people using the word when gangster rap songs say it every second word)
    and look at the point he’s trying to make.

  15. Slime Shady says:

    At the end of the day it doesn’t matter whether you’re black white Jew hispanic or whatever, if you’re an American you LOVE to exercise your big fat fucking american mouth.

  16. Slime Shady says:

    Also Robert the politically correct term for the brothers is too hard to say.
    “New York Jigaboo-Americans”

  17. paul j perillo says:

    Shut up nigger

  18. John Crow says:

    lol niggers are stupid anyways, id be shocked if half of them owned a TV, and even more surprised if half the owners knew how to work a remote control- what with the words and all. Niggers get off your lazy asses and pull your fingers out of them and come work for me- the white man- you slave scum.

  19. John Crow says:

    Just joking guys… I’m a nigger and proud of it. Slap me up brothers.
