The choicest words:
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!
Then, after the entirely appropriate backlash began, Mushnick doubled down:
Bob – Such obvious, wishful and ignorant mischaracterizations of what I write are common. I don’t call black men the N-word; I don’t regard young women as bitches 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?”
Jay-Z profits from the worst and most sustaining self-enslaving stereotypes of black-American culture and I’M the racist? Some truths, I guess, are just hard to read, let alone think about.
This would all be offensive if it weren't such a tin-eared, tired, and stupid argument. I'm going to guess that, in doing a mental tally of NBA owners with problematic racial views, he somehow forgot Donald Sterling. I'm also going to guess that he hasn't listened too carefully to the Black Album.
