NY Post writer Phil Mushnick wrote a scathing piece about Jay-z and his involvement with the Brooklyn Nets. He feels Jay-z designing the actual design for the new logo is outrageous considering the rappers lyrics about niggas, bitches and hoes. While I have no issue with a rapper being called out for the lyrics they write I am more surprised the writer is just now speaking out. Hello Mr . Mushnick where have you been for the last eight years? Jay-z has been with the Nets organization for at least 8 years and working on becoming the Brooklyn Nets for at least four. I would have more respect for you if you just came out and said what is really bothering you, and that is you realized Jay-z actually has say in the Nets organization. You were ok with Jay-z as long as he was the token black guy for the for the Russian billionaire to build the arena in Brooklyn with but now that he is stepping out of the shadows and his advice is being taken, well that is just too much. For the record I don’t agree with some of Jay’s lyrics either however, if you are going to point out how Jay is eating then I suggest you focus on men who still eat off the backs of slavery, apartheid, Jim Crow laws and other injustices that have plagued our world for centuries. Going after a man who used the trappings of his environment to get out and excel is just a waste of time and since your goal is to actually make a difference it’s always smart to start at the top, don’t you think? The Post removed the story and the writer is standing by what he wrote citing the ever popular reverse racism. Why can the black guy say nigga and I can’t you know the popular cop out. What say you guys am I looking at this with rose-colored glasses or is this man just a prick let us know in comments or @mediamyxx @akireshenri
Niggas in Brooklyn?
