    It depends. Racial slurs are not of themselves racist. "Creepy ass cracker/nigger/kike/whateverthe****" is racist if the reason they are creepy is because of the race. If it is just a cracker who is creepy, then no. Racism requires a feeling of superiority over the other race. This is why I complain that people overuse the term racism in a big way here.

    May I ask what brought this question about?

    Eco...that's sociological theory.

    Any person of one race who expresses the belief of superiority over another...that is racist. But to simply hate somebody because of their religion, skin color, culture...is bigotry.

    Not all bigots are racist, but all racists are bigots.

    That would be a yes, Seems like the only one to inject race into the Martin/Zimmerman debacle was Martin.

    Still, even though it's racist, it wouldn't offend me personally. But I think blacks use it to offend. *shrug*

    To remove the state institutional discrimination resulting in oppression and a system of privilege is to reduce the term "racism" almost as to indulge ignorance.

    Of course the old "sticks and stones..." applies. I just think many will agree that we're sick of the double standard. It's a laugh that so far the evidence and testimony only shows TM used racial slurs, yet the prosecution wants to paint Z as the racist.

    What's a Cracker?

    I'm proud to be a Florida cracker.
    I'm never creepy, except when i'm stalking something I'm planning to shoot.
    Maybe sometimes I'm an ass. but I'll only accept that from my wife.
    as to the definition of cracker someone who is ignorant and has a tendency toward violence? I'm NOT ignorant!

    It's the 'sociological definition'.
    Where in the world did you drag this bunch of balony up? With this definition then KKK's are not racist because they have no institutional backing.

    I really don't know much about that case, so I can't comment on it. I didn't realize this thread was even related to that.

    Some sociologists have defined racism as a system of group privilege. In Portraits of White Racism, David Wellman has defined racism as “culturally sanctioned beliefs, which, regardless of intentions involved, defend the advantages whites have because of the subordinated position of racial minorities”.[23] Sociologists NoŽl A. Cazenave and Darlene Alvarez Maddern define racism as “...a highly organized system of 'race'-based group privilege that operates at every level of society and is held together by a sophisticated ideology of color/'race' supremacy.
    Racism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Racism is a system, enforced by those in power. It's not just racial bigotry.

    Uh, does 'ass cracker' refer to those guys who's pants are down by the crotch? 'Cause that's nasty, but not creepy, so maybe it is racist.
