“THUG”

The word has been getting an awful lot of attention lately

Why?

[To say that I’m a fan of Richard Sherman is an understatement]

Who is questioning whether it’s a racial slur? It’s simple; there are people who have voiced a distaste for the word, regardless if you want to call it a racial slur or not, it’s disrespectful.

I don’t appreciate being called a slut because I’m a female. There are white people who don’t like the word honky, either. Kid’s probably don’t like being called, little shits.

At some point, I hope society as a whole can grow the #uck up and realize that we’re all PEOPLE. All shapes, sizes, ages, colors & education levels make bad decisions & live in ways that functional members of society have to deal with. We [as mature adults] need to be held to a higher standard.

What are we teaching the younger generations when trying to decide if Thug is a racial slur or not makes NATIONAL NEWS? If anything is ever going to change, we’re going to have to work together as one big society of people and come to a solution that trumps name calling. I’ve been outspoken in regards to the Baltimore Riots and the medias coverage of it. Things are not being shown because every outlet wants to give it’s viewers the most dramatic story & now we’re focusing on a word?

I may be naive or disgustingly optimistic, but I refuse to believe there are more bad than good people in this country. The bad, unfortunately, just seem to get more attention.

  1. I agree. The good never make headlines or sell newspapers except for the occasional or token feel good story. No, the media needs angst and turmoil. As the saying goes, if it doesn’t bleed, it doesn’t lead.

  2. All these terms are the ways in which people discriminate between other people, they seem to be something like hashtags, so you can have #thug etc…
    Having such a diverse range of people in society is what makes life interesting and society as a whole needs to be more accepting. A nice post – thanks 🙂
