    Unbelievable. Now there is debate that the term thug is a racist term. I guess this is another term embraced by the black community that is only racist if white people use it because those who embrace the term thug live it or they wouldn't tattoo themselves with it: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/don-lemon...a-racist-term/

    And for the record, the Omaha police have it right in this context. That child is a thug in training. Also, I'm really starting to like this Don Lemon guy. Only a matter of time before he's blackballed(pardon the pun) and ends up on Fox News.



    Here is the video in question:



    I should point out that the mother of this child is 16. The disturbing this here is that automatically the police are at fault. Not that a 16 year old mother allows her child to be around scumbags and is taught this stuff. This is the major problem with the black community. It's easier to lash out at the messenger instead of actually looking and understanding the message.

    Fortunately the child in the video, along with two others, were removed by the police and placed in foster care the day after this video went viral.

    Wow. Someone really screwed up at CNN and let some common freaking sense slip through.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    The word "thug" is derived from Thuggee, which was a devotee of Kali and a ritual murderer in India. The Thuggee practiced murder and robbery as devotional acts to the goddess, and terrorized India until the British destroyed the cult. So, if you want to be technical, it could be a racial term, but only if you are from India.

    When someone calls you a racist, you should respond with either, "Sorry, that doesn't work on me." or "Oh God, did you really just call me a racist? How 1980's!" or "Yeah, and?"

    Only when people stop putting up with the accusation will it cease to have power.
