you bout to bring the thug out in shock better watch yourself man!!!
i was born in the ghetto am I a thug?
lol..so just because a dictionary says it, it means its true? are you kidding me?
so you think every thug is a murderer? not all thugs are, nor are they violent, robbers or muggers. if you think ALL thugs are like that then i feel sorry for you.
i know plenty of thugs who dont do stuff like that..you ever heard of the song shorty wanna thug? lol so she wants a murderer? a robber? a violent person? lol what r u even saying?
that's more closer to a definition dude...
im not here to argue with you, because im sure you knew that already..sometimes you cant take things so literally and word for word..just saying.
and for the record, a thug isnt necessarily a bad person.
davis aint thug, but i get where everyone is going with this. artest is a thug stright up hes a punk and a thug no denying
does baron davis have a history of robbery or murdering that I don't know about???
if a black guys in a fight, he's a thug, if a white guy get's in a fight he's not? is that your logic for ron artest?
delonte west maybe... he rolled around on a motorcycle with a loaded shotgun and handgun, so he thinks he is one... but to WWL's point, these guys get special treatment their whole lives. they are pampered athletes, they have maseuses and maids and butlers and live in mansions. far from thugs, regardless of what they think they are.
if a black guy owns a gun, he's a thug. if a white guy owns a gun, he's a good old country boy in the NRA or a republican. These double standards are juvenile and outdated... thank god people like you are in the minority in your ignorant labelling of people.
WWL said many NBA players are thugs, because you can't take the ghetto out of the kid. They may talk a certain way that doesn't meet your standards of politeness or properness, but that doesn't make them violent gang-banging robbers and murders.
I'm not saying all NBA players are boy scouts. my only point is that to say NBA tough guys are thugs is racist, and ODP correted himself by saying "bad boys" which is a much more appropriate term.
just be a little more sensitive to racial stereotypes, it's a public site. Aren't you asian Mack Shock? you should think about that before throwing stereotypes around, knowing what it's like to be subjected to them unfairly.
Nothing against white boys but the owners tend to want white guys or politer black guys like Barnes or polite half black guys like curry. They signed lee and bogut to have a white team, they want their core mostly white.
yes i use a dictionary to define words... that's what humans do, otherwise somebody would say an apple and mean an orange. We use the dictionary to define words, thats how we communicate. Did you make it past 2nd grade?
Tupac didn't invent the word thug, he invented a way of life called "thug life" which were a set of codes written by Pac designed to give order to the rise of gang violence and drug dealing in south central LA. So yeah drug dealing and violence and murdering are all associated with being a thug.
I think your definition of a thug is different to the rest of the world. and you just misinterpreted tupac.
