What's in a name?

POTUS hoist by his own petard?
A term used by President Barack Obama and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to characterize rioters has given new life to a debate over the word "thug."
"Of course it's not the right word, to call our children 'thugs,'" Baltimore City Councilman Carl Stokes told CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront." "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."
"Just call them n-----s. Just call them n-----s," he said. "No, we don't have to call them by names such as that."
 Maybe they should be called Republicans?
