1.) Criminal, ruffian, gangster...i.e

Those thugs on Wall Street stole from thousands of people by establishing fraudulent corporations under the Enron umbrella

2.) Caucasian slang for nigger, used in cases where upper middle class respectable white people want to express their disdain for what they feel are vaguely frightening black people but don't want to face the social and physical consequences of openly using the word nigger...i.e
.
1.) Those thugs on Wall Street stole from thousands of people by establishing fraudulent corporations under the Enron umbrella.

Those thugs that roam the streets late at night don't hesitate to assault pedestrians and take their money.

2.)I don't like how that thug celebrated in the end zone.

The property values dropped in that community because they had a lot of thugs move in.

I'm not racist, I just don't like the thugs and their loud music.

A violent person, especially a criminal.
The gang of thugs looted and destroyed the only drugstore in our neighborhood.

One with no place in civilized society. Highly aggressive mannerisms, tone of voice, and behavior. Makes you nervous to even be in the same room as that person. Highly likely to rob you or commit acts of violence.
If you are a thug you deserve whatever you get.

"The English word thug, meaning a violent criminal, comes from the Hindi word thag (and originally from the Sanskrit word sthaga), meaning a thief or villain."Back in the 1500's or so ,not really sure about the date, there was a god, in which ladies would come to. They would scarfice items to it, and also cut themselfs and the men would come and still there sacrifics and beat the women and they call themselfs thugs"The original Thugs were bands of roving criminals in India who strangled and robbed travellers. Originally these gangs committed murder following precise religious rites to honour Kali, the Hindu goddess of destruction."
