Richard Sherman: ‘Thug’ Is ‘Accepted Way Of Calling Somebody The N-Word’

Richard Sherman, the outspoken Seahawks defender who came under heavy criticism for his firey post-game interview, said that the only thing that he regretted was that it distracted the media and fans from the play of his teammates and the victory he’d earned.

Despite that, the Stanford graduate told the press he was upset that so many fans and media figures were quick to brand him a “thug” over the comments he made.

“The only reason it bothers me is because it seems like it’s the accepted way of calling somebody the N-word nowadays,” Sherman said during a press conference in Seattle. “It’s like everybody else said the N-word and then they say thug. And that’s fine. That’s where it’s kind of, you know, it kind of takes me aback. And it’s kind of disappointing because they know. What’s the definition of a thug, really?”
