    I'm thinking you would be screaming racist til the cows came home.

    I would never suggest that someone had something coming or is some sort of oppressor just by virtue of the color of their skin. In conservative land, skin color is just not that important.

    Please explain how your thinking process works, it should be illuminating.

    Cracker was a term first applied to poor rural dwellers who cracked corn as subsistence food.

    What's confusing to you? I think he's just looking for parity and consistency (futile as that may be).

    Poor, white rural dwellers, from the southern United States.

    You're going to experience failure trying to claim that cracker isn't a racist term.

    It's incredibly telling that Libbos defend racist behavior.

    Poor Scots/Irish rural dwellers, described as such by better off English dwellers. White on White racism!

    that cracker has clear racial connotations. The fact that it was used in some other sense in the past is irrelevant, like the example of monkey above. because language and it's usage evolves and changes, and is heavily dependent on context ...

    Cracker was a term first applied to poor rural dwellers who cracked corn as subsistence food.
    and monkey original refers to a primate ...
