Carl Stokes says calling Baltimore children “thugs” Is just like calling them the n-word

Councilman Carl Stokes got into a spirited exchange with CNN Erin Burnett last night. Stokes objects to calling the teenage criminals that were throwing stones and rocks at police and looting stores thugs. He equates thugs with the word nigger. What do you think? Share your thoughts.

    They were acting like “thugs” Monday night, inexcusable, committed criminal acts…I hope they are arrested and excuse for that behavior…
    destroying their neighborhood, people struggle and pleaded to get services for them and the elderly…look what they did in a few hours..

    Gotta love the tactic to silence the opposition. But if he insists on adhering to this narrative then just call them niggers. That is a more accurate description based on “our children’s” behavior. And I took note that he dispensed with political correctness failing to say “N word”, so I took liberty to do likewise.
