Thug is a good word for cops. They're thugs with guns and badges. Hoodlum would be another appropriate moniker.

Thug has not ever been a racial term. But Ferguson and now Baltimore hasn't help your point.

if "thug" is not being used in a racial context, why are only black men called thugs? why are educated black men, with middle class backgrounds, like Richard Sherman and Kanye west called thugs? Kanye West is a lot of things, but he is not and will never be a thug. even when people talk about the affluenza kid, people use words like brat or punk. no, my cat is a brat and my son acts like a little punk sometimes, the affluenza murderer is a thug.

I think the "Thugs" looting and burning, should be "SHOT" on sight by the National Guard as a training exercise. That would solve the problem real quick. One armored vehicle and a Machine Gun would have ended the riots in a few minutes. Get them as they exit the business.

First of all, who calls Kanye West a thug? I can't say that I've ever heard him referred to that way. When you Google "Kanye West thug," all that comes up are articles about him getting "turned up" to a song by an artist named "Young Thug." I wonder why the artist chose that name when it's so offensive to black people?

As for the affluenza kid, a drunk driving accident is not the same thing as intentionally committing harm. What he did was tragic, and I do feel that there should have been more consequences for his actions, but I don't think he intended to kill or harm anyone when he got behind the wheel that night. I do think there is a difference between intentional vs. unintentional behavior.
