Lawrence O’Donnell from MSNBC “THUG”

Standard

On May 5, 2015, Lawrence O’Donnell had the best expose in his “Rewrite” part of his program I’ve heard to date on the word “THUG” – see, I’m probably close to him in age, and I never associated the word “THUG” with any ethnic group, but rather with anyone, white, black, Asian, Latino, and honestly male or female, if they were acting in a criminal way – if they were being a bully – if they were abusing their “power”.

I’m not sure I even know when “THUG” became just a word to refer to African-Americans? And, when did “THUG” replace the “N” word?  I guess it’s a good thing I caught this segment of Mr. O’Donnell’s piece on his program “The Last Word” with Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC or I would probably have never known and would have offended at least one or more of my black friends.  And that would never be in my heart, so as a word of caution to the rest of you, my friends & readers, I’ve included the video here for you to watch for yourself.  And, to decide for yourself whether you will or will not be using the word “THUG” anymore?
