    If "cracker" isn't a racial slur then neither is "coon" or "beaner."

    So there are not shades of grey, especially when it is used intraracially?

    I was born and raised in Florida. We called ourselves Florida crackers. There is even a type of house called a Florida cracker house.

    Exactly, I always saw it more as of a class distinction.

    Edit: Too bad all this has distracted from the OP, but then some did want that.

    Re: NC Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment 1 Reportedly Written To Protect 'Caucasian Race"

    The term is used as a proud or jocular self-description. Since the huge influx of new residents into Florida from the northern parts of the United States and from Mexico and Latin America in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, the term "Florida Cracker" is used informally by some Floridians to indicate that their families have lived in the state for many generations. It is considered a source of pride to be descended from "frontier people who did not just live but flourished in a time before air conditioning, mosquito repellent, and screens."[4][5]

    And plenty of blacks walk around calling themselves nigga. Does that make it not racist anymore too? Maybe i missed that update?

    Furthermore, go read the OP. Do you think he meant the term cracker in a loving way? or as a derogatory statement toward a race?

    Or could it be vitriol?

    I already told you that it was not meant about race. But you can't untwist your panties long enough to listen. I suggest you look up the word in the dictionary.

    I meant this a a derogatory term to describe an intolerant backass hick. Which is precisely what she is. Deal with it.
