This topic has been addressed on here. Some believe the word “thug” has a racist connotation to it, I actually do not. 

I am of the belief, A thug can be white, black, brown, Asian, etc 

Most in the comment section of the article have similar beliefs as mine.

So I guess My question is when did it start that calling someone or a group a thug/thugs imply you are a racist?

I actually somewhat agree. Thuggish behavior and other was to use thug is not racist. When like minded folk start calling regular folk of color thugs then its possibly racist. For me thugs are gangbangers or criminals. Not regular folk.
