    Honestly I think it's funny. If somebody called me cracker, honkey, or peckerwood, I'd probably laugh.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Trayvon Martin's friend, who was on the phone with him, relayed TM saying that "some creepy ass cracker" was staring at him. That was George Zimmerman. TM said he was going to take a short-cut to the home of his father, with whom he was visiting, and told his friend basically "... that nigger is following me!"

    To me, in the entire context of the phone conversation between the two, it seemed common slang terms used without thought by the two of them and probably the friends they hung out with. I didn't see it as racist; just vulgar slang, common among many kids today.
    And would you consider it racist if a white person said on the phone to their white friend, "that creepy ass nigger is following me" ??
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Appeals to dictionary definitions are annoying because they imply that the language we speak should be prescribed by, not described in, dictionaries. That language is not living and mutable.
    Also. Racism is not a color. Or a fruit.

    I did...

    Many times....

    Back in my Law Enforcement days.



    And, oh by the way, the black cops.... laughed too when they were called nigger.

    Anybody who is worth a **** in society doesn't get offended over stupid **** like being called a name..



    Now, society finding it acceptable for one ethnic group to be hateful of another group due to wrongdoings that nobody alive is responsible for in the past........ That is something that I can't accept if we are supposed to be looking for "Equality"

    If you hate capitalism so much, then just write everything in lower case. Problem solved.

    I didn't even say that.

    I said Webster's dictionary has a definition that means something.

    But that that meaning is more or less irrelevant, and is primarily used in arguments like this.

    If any of you white privileged people ever had to suffer real - institutionalized - discrimination, you wouldn't be crying about how some relatively powerless minority calling you names is the same thing.

    A dictionary is a source of words and their meaning.So if you claim a word means something and no credible dictionary supports your claim then you are a wrong.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Why is the dictionary definition of racism/racist irrelevant to a discussion about what the word means? In fact, what could possibly be more relevant?

    ecofarm has posted multiple times about it
    His own source contradicted his statement and definition.
