Washington Post Columnist Mike Wise Slams Indiana Pacers For Playing Tyga, Game Music In Locker Room

Sports writer Mike Wise took to Twitter to criticize the music that the Indiana Pacers played in their locker room before a playoff game against the Washington Wizards.

Earlier this week, popular Washington Post sports columnist and feature writer Tweeted his disapproval of the music played in the Indiana Pacers locker-room leading up to a playoff game against the Washington Wizards. Criticizing Tyga and Game directly for what he seems to have considered overly vulgar lyrics, Wise went on to mock some users for correcting his inaccurate referencing of the rappers.





Following Wise’s Tweets, many users responded negatively with criticism for his comments. Wise himself also posted an article he wrote last November regarding the use of the n-word.

“The N-word is filth; it’s disrespectful, confusing and uplifts no one,” he wrote in November. “I know of no other minority in the world co-opting a dehumanizing, racial slur used by its oppressor...Yet I’m told, ‘You don’t get it; you’re white.’

No. That doesn’t work for me. I deserve a seat at this table. This is about the world my 3-year-old is going to live in.”






Complex also reported on the event.

    If my job forced me to listen to rap music that contained the N-word and other vulgar remarks, I'm suing everybody. Not cus I think it's wrong, just cus it'd be easy money.

    So...the music that grown men listen to in the locker room has an effect on the world your 3 year old is gonna grow up in? Are you kidding me? This dude likes rock from the 70s/80s that blatantly glorifies getting laid and doing drugs. But because it's a genre he doesn't like or knows nothing about (I don't like Tyga, but Tiger? Really?) he's gonna get all up in arms about it. You can express whatever you want to in music, and you can listen to whatever you want. Trying to "get rid of ignorance" in music has never once worked. If you're that worried about your damn kid then talk to them and explain why you think what's being said isn't ok. Don't try to push your dumbass beliefs on people who don't see it the same way as you

    Who is this damn sensitive vagina? Who cares what this moron has to say. Why he thinks he should give his worthless opinion on the music that players listen to in "their" locker room is beyond me. No one gives a f uck what this dumb square thinks. It's simple, just don't allow this bald woman to be in the locker room anymore. He's an emotional lame. Now they're trying to go as far as trying to control what kind of music people listen to before a game to pump themselves up? This ain't Natzi Germany you dumb son of a bitch. GTFOH!

      If you need Tyga to pump you up for a game then your team sucks and should instantly be eliminated from the playoffs.

    white man never invented n word or language research naga tribe, mons tribe , nig means king in its essence the devil is a lie and the devil runs this world and every race and country knows who that really is, salute to the whites going against their racist culture

    • Anon

      Do you have any proof that "nig" in this language is the root of the n-word? Many words have different meanings in dif languages.

    • Anonymous

      first thing you should know is the english language has no actual root definition of the word, 2nd, Schwarzenegger interpretation: "Arnold himself has always said the name translates as "the black plowman" so you can see the American plantation owner calling them "neggers" and with their poor education spelling it n!gg3rs, and it turning into a nickname for a people they treated worst than a pet so yes, they have perverted the meaning for their own agenda as a term of endearment, you can stake a claim that it diffuses because it's used trying to overcome the past, after all my definition just explained it as a plowman, how many Blacks are plowman in 2014? but you cannot overlook those who wish to use it as that weapon of prejudice under the veil of "endearment", why the best thing is to remove it from the lexicon altogether giving whites to repossession of using the word is like giving a reformed crackhead a pound of crack, they're not gonna use it for the better good of humanity, just to fulfill their desires

    • Nope!

      elaborate on what you saying it caught my attention but i would like to comprehend what you saying to research it especially the last part "nig means king in its essence the devil is a lie and the devil runs this world and every race and country knows who that really is, salute to the whites going against their racist culture"

  • Anon

    I don't get it.. white skins made up the N word, now they get mad when they hear Black folks say it.
