    I keep seeing that word used, is it some kind of secret code for something?

    • tom_billesley

      It’s a media contraction of “Young Thugs”.

    • David Murrell

      “Disenfranchised youths”, actually. This s the term CBC News uses.

  • Barry Thornton

    Blacks bein’ Blacks, my first thought when I read the headline was shown to be correct.

    How many times do we have to return to the topic of bat control?

    Things are so vibrant nowadays. I don’t know how we managed in my boring , non-enriched monocultural youth.

      Well , what did you do that was so exciting?

    • Shebel

      For myself— I just hung out with a bunch of white kids. That is all there was back then. We had a lot of fun.
      We had yet to be enlightened to the many attributes of the ‘pigmented ones’.

  • Shebel

    This is so very Exciting.
    This vibrancy and inclusion is a heart stopper.
    If you don’t have the Darkies killing each other – then You
    Got the Muslims just wanting to kill and rape anybody.

  • Quaint multi-cultural practices.

      Dogs sleep at night.

    • Shebel

      Are we all a bit ‘ Quaint’ – for such a worldly person , such as as yourself?

      • That was ironic, in case you missed it.

        • Shebel

          I did miss it. ,I guess.

      What was that old saying about you can’t take the jungle out of the monkey or some such?

    I’d heard that this all started after an argument over a chicken wing.
    A contested drumette, I believe.
