Thug is a part of the English language and no one person owns it. We have allowed the PC police to limit our ability to express ourselves, and, therefore, it has created a barrier between the cultures. We must stop letting others put us in a box. Who are these people who can tell us we can only say certain words and others cannot – again, we have allowed it.
A Thug is a thug……period, it isn’t the N-word as a city councilman in Baltimore claims it to be. A thug is a single word that describes a persons action against its community, like looters, arsonists etc. etc. etc. Here we go again……political correctness crap.
If you knock out a window intentionally, you are acting like a thug. You loot, you are a thug. Destroy property, THUG. There are other words we could use, idiot, moron, social animal……on and on.
If you behave consistently in a manner of destruction, you are a THUG.
Don’t act offended when you act offensively, it is what it is, and if you behave in a way that merits a one word description, you might be a THUG.
