The term 'Cracker' comes from the white man who cracked the whip on slave farms, therefore whenever a black man calls a white man a cracker they are technically empowering the white man.

*buzzer sound* Cracking is a term that refers to talking boastfully about oneself, something that is stereotypical of poor hillbilly white trash.

The term "redneck" comes from slaves who were taken from Ireland (if I remember correctly...). They had very little pigment, so they were easily burned. Hence the term "redneck", because they often had burned necks. This is also why there are so many Irish people in places like Boston.

Yea... There were white slaves as well.

It could be considered empowering by some, but technically they could also be calling them a cruel and sadistic asshole.

I mean that's not cool dude, that's pretty mean.

I'm really not sure, but I was thought that is was term for the cattle ranchers of the south because they also cracked their whips at the cattle.

I could be wrong though!

I remember reading something a while back where the origin of the word actually from whites referring to poor southerners. I could give you a link to the source but I dont care too much about the subject and don't feel like looking. So whatever you want to believe.

It was actually a black man she sued and the whole reason for the emotional trauma thing was that he was yelling at her and called her a ****** several times in his office.

Cracker is a type of food, not just a slur.
****** is nothing but a slur.

****** > cracker slur wise.

No one is gonna call someone a cracker because they think they're a food, they're gonna say it because they are trying to be offend them or whatever. who cares about the origin of the slurs, they're not used like that they're only used to offend

Cracker is / was slave slang for the white man who kept the slave in line with a whip. Originally "whip cracker" it has been shortened to just "cracker" to be used as a derogatory term for white people used by blacks.

I know how the slur "cracker" came to be.
I'm jsut staing that you can't really ban that word, since the word has multiple uses.
****** on the other hand is a pure slur which has no other meaning. In my opinion, that makes it the more racist slur.

I really have no idea. "Cracker" doesn't really offend that many people, "******" offends a bunch of people. Majority wins I guess.

It's funny. Idk if Dos Gringos is anywhere else, but it's a kickass restaraunt. But don't expect there to be a restaraunt called "2 *******."
To be fair though, they were called that almost exclusively as slaves, so saying it to them is like they're still just as low.
