If you follow NFL football then you’ve seen the meme’s and video clips or Richard Sherman and his post playoff game rant after the Seahawks beat the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. His loud and brash post game interview has America calling him “A Thug,” and a hoodlum, but how are people justifying calling this Stanford University graduate a Thug?  Well I am here to tell you, if you call a black man “A Thug,” it means your actually calling him a nigger.

The N-word has been highly debated in the media over the past few months. Some using it as a tool to spark conversation about race relations in America.

This is evident because black men like Richard Sherman are being called thugs without merit or basis. Twitter trolls attack his account with racism and hatred. The day after the Seahawks’ win, the word “thug” was uttered 625 times on American television.

In a recent interview Sherman was asked about  his critics’ use of the word “thug.”
