Like with spelling and grammar, I wondered if there's a generational thing going on here. (trying to be fair) (or current) (or curious)
On Urban Dictionary, most people define "rig" as meaning to "cheat" or to take "unfair advantage". Further down the list of meanings, a very small minority of people say it means "admirable or very good". Maybe one day "rigged" will mean something good; likely in school yards. Think of the word "sick".
I think "rigged" will keep its current negative connotation; is there a better synonym? How else can a losing candidate describe a suspicious voting machine? I can't see a national media outlet describing a mayor as wearing a sick suit delivering a speech in front of a rigged office complex.
Please excuse all the punctuation.
Lol :thumbs up:, etc., etc.
IE: In the context the statement was made, the intent was for it to be a racial slur. :thumbs down:
