    No, no.
    I was just asking.

    Because I have known literally thousands of people that can be classified as thugs.
    As far as I know, it isn't a color or race issue.

    His comment that got him fired seemed a bit racist to me. Kid was black. Wearing a hoodie. Comment was "act like a thug, die like one". The kid was walking down a street with candy and a can of tea. So I assume the now ex cop is a racist. Most are stupid and this guy is pretty much that, don't you think? lol

    No..I don't think so. Or do I? It's possible, lol. I'm multitasking at the moment, so you could be right.

    No, I'm in the right thread. A cop got fired for posting something on a news site about the kids death.

    Ya see, I don't get this. When did wearing hoodies become a "thug" type clothing style? I wear hoodies all the time and I'm pretty much the definition of clean cut white man.

    Maybe it's me, but what does that have to do with Treyvon Martin? This PO was in a fire fight with two men after a traffic stop.

    Wait!!!!!!!!!!!!! Does your multi-tasking involve Scotch? I'm just askin'....

    Mine includes wine, so it could be me....)

    And I'm straight but I like rainbows, yet if I put one on my bumper people will still assume I'm gay.

    See how that works?

    I understand the point you are making.

    I just don't see that thug pertains to a specific race.

    Your comment about the kid and his hoodie.

    That incident had initially nothing to do with wearing a hood.

    Officer Jason Giroir identified himself as a New Orleans Police Department employee when he wrote, “Act like a thug die like one!” in response to a WWL-TV article about a rally supporting Martin.

    There's a big difference between wearing a hoodie and having a rainbow bumper sticker. But when I see someone wearing a hoodie, even if it's a black guy walking around with skittles and a can of tea, I don't assume he's a thug. I assume he's chilly.
