    Deuce gets a lot of hate around here (and most of it is deserved because he's often a giant a-hole), but his use of the word "thug" was in no way racist. Not only is the word "thug" not racist (though I'd grant that it could be racist in certain contexts), Deuce was referring to what other people say about Mathieu. Do people around here just not know how to read?

    Anyone who claims to see racism in it needs to take a good look in the mirror.

    It's fun to hate on Deuce, but do it for legitimate reasons. There are plenty of them.

    You can blame on two or three people for it.

    The word "Thug" is actually Indian in origin. It is short for Thuggee which were organized gangs of criminals that would roam the countryside killing, then robbing, travelers. Some called them a cult. The badguys in Indian Jones and the Temple of Doom were called Thuggees. But they were badly missrepresented by that movie. They did not pull people's heart's out and sacrifice them to Kali in a burning pit. They just killed and robbed people at the side of the road.

    You're the moron who associated it with racism. No one else did, no one thinks it is a racist term and no one agrees with you.
