#Baltimore: ‘Thug’ the New N-Word

Many infuriating things have happened in Baltimore since the death of Freddie Gray. The mayor allowing people to riot and destroy, a moronic CNN anchoranchor claiming that military veterans were to blame, and the Orioles being forced to play a gamegame that was closed to the public, but we can now add one more idiotic sentimentsentiment to that list. Progressives continue to push this theory that the word ‘thug’ is as insulting as the N-word.

Even though President Obama and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake have characterized rioters as thugs, the Sensitivity and Feelings Patrol is at it again screaming that the term “thug” is racist, and that it shouldn’t be used to describe “16 and 17 year old kids”.


“Of course it’s not the right word, to call our children ‘thugs,’” Baltimore City Councilman Carl Stokes told CNN. “These children who have been set aside, marginalized, who have not been engaged by us. No, we don’t have to call them thugs.” “Just call them n—–s. Just call them n—–s,” he continued. “No, we don’t have to call them by names such as that.”

On Wednesday morning, the Rev. Jamal Bryant used the same comparison on CNN. He said that the president and mayor are wrong.

“These are not thugs, these are upset and frustrated children,” said Bryant. “It’s amazing. You don’t call six police officers who kill a man without probable cause ‘thugs,’ but children who are frustrated and don’t have an outlet, you call them ‘thugs.’ ‘Thugs’ is the 21st century word for the N-word. And it is repulsive and it is offensive to every person who is a parent trying to raise children interpreting what’s taking place in this hour.”

I think you get the point. The language police want to try to ban a new word, y’all! Should we start the hashtag? Has it been done already? I don’t commonly waste my valuable time tracking such idiocy and foolishness, so I really don’t know.

I listen to the words that people say, and I have a pretty decent vocabulary. The English language means something to me, and so do the definition of words. So, I decided to do a vocabulary lesson today. I have a few dictionaries, but for this lesson I visited the Merriam-Webster websitewebsite, typed in ‘thug’, and wasn’t amazed one bit when a 100% non-racial definition was revealed.

Thug (noun): a brutal ruffian or assassin

Hmmm, well, I certainly think that attacking police, destroying private and public property, and forcing martial law to be declared fits the definition of a ‘thug’.

And, might I just toss the fact out there that not all of the rioters are black. There are many different races in attendance, and guess what? All those that are destroying and looting are THUGS. And, let’s stop assuming just because one mother caught her teenage son at the riots that all of these ruffians are 16 and 17 year olds. They aren’t, and even at that age individuals know not to steal, destroy, and hurt other people.

What obvious conclusion does that lead us to? That progressives have turned this into a racial issue when it really is not. Some words are absolutely racially destructive, but ‘thug’ isn’t one.

Of course, though, Mayor Rawlings-Blake has backpedaled on her statement.

“I wanted to clarify my comments on ‘thugs,’” she tweeted on Wednesday. “When you speak out of frustration and anger, one can say things in a way that you don’t mean.”

Mayor, this is only a small portion of why people don’t take you seriously, and it is also why the riots will continue. Apologizing and appeasing people set on destruction never solves anything, but I know progressives will never understand that. I’ll say it. I don’t care if I hurt feelings. Those individuals in Baltimore are criminals and ‘thugs’.

    Typical liberal arguments. By equating thug with other racist epithets, they can justify the behavior and stop any discussion because everyone is obviously racist.

  • Chris in N.Va. says:

    They are just poor, gentle and genteel misguided “yoots” who were bored and had nuttin’ else to do, ya know?

    Riiiight. The now-famous mama bear starring in the viral video who delivered a Class A-1 Superior @$$-whoopin’ to her cub appears to be one of the few adults in this whole ugly scenario.

    The few MEN in the whole mix who stood in phalanx in front of the riot police, staring down the anarchist looters were also, sadly, apparently the exception. If some of the “baby daddies” who, like errant alley cats, fathered these hoodlums had, instead, manned-up and served as in-the-home mature father figures (true, an oxymoron for their established behavior), how many fewer “yoots” would be looting, and getting arrested.

    Lib/Dem/Prog “results” writ large for all to see. Thanks a lot.

    EVERYTHING is racist since Obumblebutt was elected in 2008……..EVERYTHING!!

    The Race Card is like a dead bug laying on the floor it’s been so overused…it means nothing now. Everybody just says, “Yeah, yeah, yeah, blah, blah, blah!”, nowadays.

    a freaking # pound sign does not make anything important .. stop with the politically correct stupidity

    • Jodi Giddings says:

      Deserttrek: FYI, the pound sign is a method of searching for a particular subject on social media. In this case, anything related to Baltimore, thus pound sign/Baltimore.
