NY Post’s Phil Mushnick Unapologetic; Says He’s Not a Racist

Jay-Z

New York Post columnist Phil Mushnick wrote a pretty idiotic column last week, in which he suggested Jay-Z should rename the Brooklyn Nets the "New York N—-s." This week, Mushnick remains unapologetic, defensive even. The gist of his rants: calling publications "a-holes," and denying any ties of racism. The proof that he provides for the latter is that he claims he outed the deceased, racist, Nazi-sympathizing former owner of the Cincinnati Reds, Marge Schott.

"I'm never comfortable using that word. That's the way I was raised. Shame on my parents," a sarcastic Mushnick writes to the Village Voice. "The ONE time I spelled it out — for accuracy — I was widely condemned as a racist. So either way, I'm a bigot. I know what's in my heart and my head, the way I was raised, and the way I raised my kids. But you've painted me a racist." Mushnick criticized the team's uniform, new black and white logo, and saved his deadliest ammo for Brooklyn's own Jay-Z, writing, "As long as the Nets are allowing Jay-Z to call their marketing shots, why not have him apply the full Jay-Z treatment."

"The cheerleaders could be the Brooklyn B—–s or H–s. Team logo? A 9mm with hollow-tip shell casings strewn beneath. Wanna be Jay-Z hip? Then go all the way!" Mushnick writes in his original piece. The Brooklyn Nets have already issued a statement about the incident, saying, "We find the story offensive and inappropriate, and it doesn't deserve further comment."
