Jim Crow LAWS might by history - sadly however, Jim Crow ATTITUDEs are not.
muzzleflash: You sir are as racist and ignorant as the KKK.
Cracker is actually the N word. For whites.
ATS allows the N word now? ????
You have it ALL wrong. "Cracker" is not an "n" word for whites. You sir are correct that racist attitudes are not history, and the door swings both ways. If you had included the rest of the definition of 'cracker', which most definitely IS used as a racist term TODAY, other people could see how it was used as a perjorative term before the 1960's. Thanks. Peace.en.wikipedia.org...

This guy evidently never saw Babe Ruth and his temper...
So he's saying that "people of color" bring violence?
Yeah, like no white person ever brought violence to a sport...
Question is how many are going for actual education and how many are going for a football or basketball scholarship.
Not that a college education means anything these days. You don't need to have a degree to ask if you want fries with that?
