Tarzan was white...that's not racist. He was saying that he looks like a monster but plays like a woman. Parents made it pretty obvious that he hangs out with thugs.
Hopefully this doesn't happen, but I don't think that is racist. Just because someone suggests someone will get in trouble doesn't mean it is race related. Suggesting that such a statement is being made because of a person's race reveals your own perceptions of race.
Al Capone = Thug. Meyer Lansky = Thug. Don't have to be any specific race to be a thug.
