I've never associated "thug" with black. I'm from a rural area of Canada, so maybe the new meaning just hasn't penetrated here yet, I don't live in a particularly diverse area. However, when I hear "thug" the first image that pops to my mind is a large redneck wearing a tapout shirt, who works in the oil field, and possibly has a gun in his pickup... Or maybe a bouncer. From my understanding a thug was a person who tried to intimidate others.
