    after new orleans and the crime that was committed, after a chance to see the thugs compared to the square brothers in time of crisis, i was wondering if the young females are still enraptured by the thug life.

    Exactly which crimes are you referring to? I just want to be clear before I give my answer.

    Thanks

    Brother James ... you need ta quit hate'n !!!! :nono:

    wassup wit hate'n on "thugs"

    what exactly is a "thug"

    who's definition are you using ?

    i personally believe that there is a little "thug" in all of us ... some more than others ... and it's an energy that is oftentimes willing to take things to an extreme, if necessary ...

    yes ... some thugs go too far ...

    but not all of us! :wink:

    quit hate'n ... gosh

    if you're talking about CRIMINALS ... based on this current justice system ... that has historically given us no justice ... then say that

    you're trying to lump a whole bunch of Brothers / Sisters into a category

    they do enough of that to us ...

    we don't gotta

    well

    i don't gotta

    :heart:

    Who exactly has been charged and convicted with these crimes?

    Why can't they just be criminals?

    Why they gotta be thugs?

    whatever crimes were committed by Black people ... they do not compare to the crimes committed ... and being committed, via preferential contract awards, Black people suffering and dying in the streets, enmasse, total lack of care or concern by elected officials, doctors leaving patients to die, the elderly left to die ... i mean ... there were some real crimes committed ... and until all those crimes committed by White folk are addressed / punished properly ... i really aint feel'n the microscope being put on us.

    :heart:

    I can appreciate your sentiment with respect to there being a double standard. However I do have family in New Orleans, and the thugs I'm refering to are the gangs that went around raping and looting homes. My mom owns a townhouse there, and whatever wasn't nailed down was taken by black folks, not whites. So if you want to call them criminals, I agree but thecriminals who raped and looted our people are also thugs, because many of them were gang members. They've done nothing constructive in the community, except cause pain and despair.
