Be Careful Not to Hurt Their Feelings

On CNN Tuesday night, Baltimore City Councilman Carl Stokes said President Obama calling rioters “thugs” is the equivalent of calling them the n-word.

“No, of course it’s not the right word to call our children” he said. “These are children who have been set aside, marginalized, who have not been engaged by us. No, we don’t have to call them thugs”.

Obama is not running for re-election. Stokes is.
