For some reason I think that would have been your response regardless of what anyone posted.
I've been listening to a crowd of folks on here for *years* pull complete bull**** out like "herpderp Only morons say 'Obamacare'" and explain all about the secret dog-whistle words for racism. But, it seems everytime it's pointed out that these words and phrases aren't always used in a racial context - folks get slammed down for being ignorant of the 2,000+ years of suffering that has been brought upon every non-white person ever simply by someone using a word like "thug" to describe what is a "thug".
Just like the complaints over the usage of the term "Obamacare", we see folks suddenly tripping over themselves trying to justify why, in this case, it's okay!
Next thing you know, we'll have someone disparaging Zimmerman's Hispanic heritage because he's lighter than a paper bag. Oh, wait... been there, done that.
Do some folks use words like "thug", "boy", and "you there" in a negative racial context? Sure. Should backwards, ignorant-ass folks who resort to negative racial slurs of any kind be held up as a poster child for everything that's wrong with white folk?
