    Those don't count. They aren't equally as racist because they are directed at white people. Or rather...white people don't care.
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    Perhaps you aren't aware of "Thug Life" and e-thug memes. It's not referring to bikers, steel workers, or fisherman. Like I said, it can be used in that context. I didn't say it was always used in place of the n-word.

    You mean like "enhanced interrogation" and "intelligent design"?

    Sure, they can be used in a context like that too.

    It's all about context. Some people have trouble understanding nuanced points because they are used to black and white thinking, pardon the pun.

    What about them? Is it your position those are replacement words?

    More "weasel" logic....I prefer to believe most often say what they mean, and only use "context" to get away with it.

    Lots of words can be used in the same context as the "n" word. So?

    The assertion that when a person says "thug", he or she is using it instead of the "n" word is nonsense. People who want to use the "n" word will do it, and not sugar coat it. And most people who use the word "thug" use it with the same intent it's been used for for 2 centuries.

    I believe most people are full of crap, to varying degrees.
