    Because that would require everybody simultaneously forgetting history. Again, not always such a bad idea, but not realistic.

    EDIT: I'm not suggesting that the same stigmas have to hang around like a stale fart for all of eternity, because fortunately human history doesn't work that way: time heals all wounds. The more distance put between the present and a period of racial inequality, the less sting such racial epithets will have.

    Technically yes, but speaking as a white person, as racial epithets go it's a pretty damn innocuous one.

    All racial epithets are innocuous until someone starts being a baby over it.

    However, I think your analogy might work a little better if there were an equally offensive word for a white person as "nigger." Racist labels tend to sting more when applied to groups that have been significantly oppressed.

    On another note, it's easy for me to claim that "cracker" is innocuous because I am at the business end of the ephitet. I can decide for myself that when you call me a cracker, I don't feel hurt in the least. I've noticed that people decide all too often when racism is a thing of the past when they're not the ethnic group in question.

    idea Re: Racist or not Racist.

    I trully am not sure how respond to trash like this. I don't know if you are a racist, or just an idiot.

    We are have ended 8 years of the worst president in our history, it seems that a reasonably intelligent person would wait and see what is going to happen before writing a fake script for the way you want things to be with Obama.

    I voted for Obama, but I have no idea how things will go as we try to overcome the terrible legacies of the Reagan and the Bush Administrations. If Obama does not solve every problem in the next week, I will give him a chance and then judge him.

    He may not get the Job done, and the Bush goal of destroying the USA, will come true.

    So first you resort to personal attacks even though there was no provocation towards you and then you go on a rant that has absolutely nothing to do with the topic. Bravo!
