At how really truly foolish you are. AND MISTAKEN. I am a long time observer of popular culture. Music. Trends. Political philosophy and LIFE.
The use of the word THUG, by blacks to describe black criminal activity and criminals is so ubiquitous as to make you sound like a complete dolt.
Wise One wrote:In the world of radical conservatives, the word "thug" is reserved for black people who are beaten up and/or killed by white people. Just thought you'd like that grammar lesson.
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________I use the word thug to describe someone who deals in thuggish behavior. From Merriam-Webster to Tupac Shakur. You just spout foolishness.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Webster's: noun a violent criminal, a brutal ruffian, and gangster
AO, this is a very commonly used word that is not used by whites against blacks somehow exclusively, despite your PC attempt at intelligence.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Now as to TUPAC. Ever hear of him? Notorius B.I.G.? Snoop Doggy Dogg?That right there is Tupac Shakur in the middle giving YOU the finger, with THUG LIFE tattooed on his belly. The "I" is a bullet by the way, AO.
