Don Lemon brought Slim Thug onto his CNN show recently to discuss what it means to Slim to be a “thug.” This follows Lemon’s reporting of a video from Omaha, Nebraska where a toddler is seen cursing out his parents. Lemon pivots on the subject of the video to discuss the “thug cycle” and whether or not the term “thug” is racist.
