Yea, I'm not at all enamored of him. He's an educated man and great athlete who still behaves like a common thug. Which is particularly sad considering he received a kickass Stanford education.

Again, it's the PC police trying to tell us what the intention of our words are when we speak.

I got a question for any of these "thug is the new n-word" people: how do you want us to describe violent people? pretty soon they're gonna say that "criminal" is the new n-word

How about using the term to describe all violent people, and not just violent black people for starters? And I already, in an earlier post, listed several examples of violent mainly white riots where the perps are not referred to in MSM/by politicians (as black protesters are); clear double standard. But, no, that's too much to ask it seems

One more time: what proof do you have that all of those people were white, and that they were not referred to as thugs?

I find it funny that people like the one im responding to always get mad when someone points out their racism. Oh the irony! It's like oh your pulling the race card again why can't you let me be racist lol

Point is code words change often, when it became taboo to say the N word in public in the late 60s, code words used duhhhh

I'm so hurt... Crying "you are racist" seems to be the last refuge of those that can't articulate a proper argument nor are willing to engage on an intellectual level and can only spew insults and accusations in an attempt to deflect and shut down all conversation.

Doesn't work with me...

Carry on.
