But I find it a rather comical word for these racist idiots to use. It's pretty silly.
there has not been a true "cracker" in over a hundred & forty years..
Originally the white slave driver was called this because he would "crack" the whip, hence the noun cracker.
Cracker, sometimes white cracker, is a racial slur for white people, poor and Southern whites especially. In reference to a native of Florida or Georgia, however, it is used in a more neutral context.
then we would have an issue to deal with.. but I'm not worried being a resident of Arizona presently...

"Cracker" doesn't exactly have the same etymology as the "N" word. Nor does "honky" (my personal favorite, by the way) or "whitey".

Thats why Brazil is a hellhole in some parts.Most people there have an IQ below average and have nothing going for them and the crime rate,based on racism,is over the top.
