The term originally comes from the Thuggee cult in India, I think.

You kinda left a incomplete thought for the context and your point was hard to determine. " People reference thug culture" doesn't really tell us anything.

The whole subject of some elements of inner city culture being associated with "thug culture" in Atlanta and other cities is a semi-regular topic of discussion here. I thought my reference would be obvious.

As I said, most blacks folks don't call themselves a thug unless they have been in contact with the criminal justice systems and my other statement still stands as well.

The mayor was talking about thugs aka criminals. Stop being obtuse.

No black person on this boards calls themselves thugs. Give me a break.

You say blacks call themselves thugs.


Another poster says that only the ones with criminal records or kids who wana look tough do it.

Then you say it is referenced on this forum.


Then I asked what does that have to do with anything dealing with your original point.

Does that make sense?
