term for "white person". Based on other popular definitions, the word is a also a precious excuse for passive-agressive white people who think they are victims
and take this term as irrefutable evidence
of the existence
of reverse racism
. The latter, incidentally, implies
is some natural direction
that racism is SUPPOSED to run...and that's towards black people. Not crackers.
Did you hear
that black dude call
me a cracker? It's so unfair that he can call
me a cracker and I can't call
him a nigger. I really
WANT to call
him a nigger, but if anyone caught wind of it it might hurt
my senate campaign...and besides, I'm late for a benefit. God, I feel so OPPRESSED!
Why can't I shoot
him for calling me a cracker, mom? He'd shoot
me for calling him a nigger! Either
that, or he'd use his considerable socio-economic influence to get me thrown
in prison "for racism". And those places are just crawling with people of color.
