Thug by Xekowarrior123 Thug by Xekowarrior123
This is dedicated to all the brain-dead idiots and simpering race-baiting curs trying to claim that the word "thug" is now a racist slur.

I looked up "thug" in the dictionary and didn't see any mention of race anywhere in there.  However, according to the Webster dictionary, a thug is simply defined as, and I quote, "a violent criminal".

Now, last time I check, looting, rioting, assault, arson, and robbery are all violent crimes, so the rioters in Ferguson, Baltimore, and Oakland can adequately be described as "thugs". 

This controversy over the word "thug" is stupid.  A thug is anyone who is a violent criminal, period.  Race, ethnicity, gender, etc, are irrelevant.

Unless you're thinking of the Thug Cult in India that worshiped Kali

When Liberals start loosing an argument, they start throwing the word "racist" around. It's sort of like a monkey throwing poo in hopes it will stick.

I have no idea how anyone ever assigned race to this term.  I just have no idea.

It comes from Hindi "ṭhaggī" . It was an Indian network of secret fraternities who were engaged in murdering and robbing travellers and known for strangling their victims, operating from the 17th century (possibly as early as 13th century) to the 19th century.

Perhaps it's the word that causes Ebonics speakers to riot, loot, kill and burn, if we moderated our language they might be more apt to peacefully protest!

Thuggees, yes. Eradicated a long time ago, or I hope they were.
