For the many of you who don’t keep tabs with the New York media as closely as we do, New York Post media columnist Phil Mushnick is well-known for his ridiculous opinions.But his thoughts on the Brooklyn Nets rebranding with part-owner Jay-Z as the face of management is by far the most controversial, let alone racist, thing he’s ever written.

Here are Mushnick’s anti-Nets “urban” rebranding comments in their entirety:

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 colours 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!
