    The N word just means a black person so there is no sense to what he is saying,
    which is... "Thug is a nice way of saying a bad way of saying a black person."
    No sense to that at all.

    There are several words that can be used to describe the way that Sherman acted. ... stupid, dumb ass, moronic, backward, bully, neanderthal, cave man, primitive, uncontrolled, rude, unsportman like, immature, uncivilized, etc. So why are they harping on the word thug. Are only blacks thugs? I thought the prisons were full of thugs of all colors. Maybe they are just trying to detract from his asinine behavior by pointing a finger back.

    I remember this one time I was getting off the BART station in West Oakland, near where I lived at the time, and this old black man was panhandling outside the station and he asked me for some spare change. I didn't give him any because I get panhandled like 20 times a day. Anyway, after I walked past him he muttered under his breath, "Damn Yuppie!" and I was truly offended! I mean, man, I am many things, but YUPPIE? icon_eek.gif I mean that is truly an insult.
