I have a genuine question for the community. This is nothing troll related or anything. The Grand Theft Auto World community has been good to me for the most part, but occasionally I have gripes with certain players on the server. Usually these complaints come from incorrect portrayal of the African American culture in South Central. Whenever I or someone who's a stagnant figure in the African American gang RP scene voices their opinion on how someone isn't doing something right, we're labelled as an "E-Thug". I fail to understand how or even why my constituents are considered "E-Thugs." I don't see how when we are just stating facts and opinions like everyone else. I don't typically see the "e-thug" community going around forums and Discord threatening to hurt someone in RL behind a disagreement.
Several misunderstandings with other players (usually from different countries) have led me to believe than an "E-Thug" is any RPer apart of the Sureno/Black gang scene that typically uses modern day Ebonics when he/she/they type on Discord or forums in general.
Did I hit the nail on the head? What is the true definition of an E-Thug?
Can you explain why this is the term used when nothing "thuggish" is being said, just common slang. I've literally been called an "e-thug" and I haven't made one threat to the player that called me this.
I'm genuinely curious on what this term means.
