Baltimore makes ‘thug’ the new four-letter word

Webster’s Dictionary defines “thug” as “a brutal ruffian or assassin,” but the website suggested “It means a black guy who makes white folks a little more uncomfortable than they prefer.””Of course it’s not the right word, to call our children ‘thugs,'” Baltimore City Councilman Carl Stokes said. “Just call them n—–s. Just call them n—–s,” he said. “No, we don’t have to call them by names such as that.”
