NY Post writer says Brooklyn Nets should be called a racial slur

New York Post writer Phil Mushnick apparently has never been a fan of Jay-Z and so today he tried attacking him and a community by using stereotypes and a racial slur. Here is what Phil Mushnick wrote in his column:
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!

Huffingtonpost.com posted an update with Phil Mushnick response to the outcry of his column.
Mushnick responded to the furore surrounding his column later on Friday. Writing to sports site Bob's Blitz, he said that there had been "obvious, wishful and ignorant mischaracterizations" of his words.

"Jay-Z profits from the worst and most sustaining self-enslaving stereotypes of black-American culture and I'M the racist?" he continued. "Some truths, I guess, are just hard to read, let alone think about."

Do you think Phil Mushnick will be fired? Obviously he should be fired but will he get fired is the question.
