    A city slicker wears cowboy boots, jeans and a flannel shirt. Is he a cowboy? Does he have a herd of cattle two blocks over fixing to stampede?

    Well, if you wanna go all the way back, you have yet to substantiate your claim that hoodies are a part of the "thug uniform."
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    This is what I think real thugs look like:



    A cookie to whomever recognizes this person and guesses how much money they stole.

    If hoodies are the golden standard on what makes someone a thug.....





    Then these sexually ambiguous emo kids should be arrested or gunned down.

    ... I wonder if this whole hoodie-thug thing will allow me to gun down KKK members because they look like thugs.

    Most people aren't racist (they are out there, but not as much the race baiters make it seem like), but they are scared **** of criminals. People are perceived by their appearance. If you look a certain way, you will be looked as such.
    When you dress like a thug, you get treated that way......right or wrong, its a fact
