Sherman Says ‘Thug’ = N-Word [Poll]

We’re now more than midway into the week, four days after Richard Sherman‘s now infamous post-game rant on Sunday night. And somehow, this story keeps giving.

The Seattle Seahawks cornerback was asked about the way he’s been talked about in relation to the word ‘thug’.

“The only reason it bothers me is because it seems like it’s the accepted way of calling somebody the N-word nowadays,” said Sherman, at a Wednesday press conference. “It’s like everybody else says the N-word and then they say ‘thug’ and they’re like, ‘oh, that’s fine’.

“That’s where it takes me back and it’s kind of disappointing because they know. What’s the definition of ‘thug’ really?”

In my mind, I’ve never thought of the word ‘thug’ being a racially connected word. Yours?
