Cracker doesn't even remotely compare in terms of evoking deep historical hatred and countless atrocities.

go to different threads where race is brought up in, and you will see this in action. i do not have time to research thru the many threads, but since i came to this website i have seen it numerous times. since this is the 2nd time this week somebody is saying this, that alone should speak in itself.

Google isn't my friend. :-(
All it showed me was people saying that people say racism doesn't exist.

Not trying to be a smart ass despite the drive-bys. I really want to see who says those things. I want to book mark it for the next guy who asks who says them.

As a white American male I am deeply offended over the term "cracker". I am a bleeding heart who cares for everyone and to imply that I would beat an African American with a whip is deeply offensive. You might as well just call me a puppy kicker.

I gotta say living in the deep, deep south, the outrage at this has shocked me. It's not a term I personally care to use, but I hear this routinely every single day. It doesn't even bother a large percentage of blacks down here anymore. I see whites use it to blacks in open buddy-buddy conversation on a daily basis (as a black man would to another black man.) It's become hilariously common, and while that doesn't change that it's wrong (I've always been of the persuasion that it should be a taboo term regardless of your skin color, including blacks) I'm simply shocked at the national outrage at this.

 

I also gotta say... And as much as I hate to take Cooper's defense here after he did something terrible... This doesn't make him a racist. He no doubt of course could be, but I have I hard time believing a guy who played sports all his life and all the way up into the pro level, could secretly hate a group of people he's played alongside his whole life. I think it's way more likely he was being a drunk idiot than some closet racist.

Okay, this is getting ridiculous now http://www.philadelp...31-fd62b27f9cd3

 

Come on. Sensitivity training? Seriously?

 

No, what he needs, and what I plan to start a business doing is "modern celebrity" training. These celebrities today don't have the advantages stars had back in the day. You truly have no privacy. Every second of your life is being documented. Every call, every tweet, every conversation, can be captured, shared and scrutinized by the whole world.

 

Even the most private thing you confide in your best friend, they can turn around and sell it to TMZ for some quick cash.

 

You all are telling me you never in your life said anything you would take back? When you were mad? When you were drunk? Maybe not a racial slur, but maybe what you really thought of your boss, what you really said to that waitress when you were on a business trip away from your wife, what you really smoked with your buddies last weekend.

 

He said one word, and he's losing his job over it.  One word. We don't know the context, we don't know anything except he said the n-word. He's now unemployed, in sensitivity training, the most hated man in his city, and with a reputation that's damaged forever. And it's the same word that you can hear 50-100 times on any rap CD, or even in a Louis C.K. comedy routine.

 

Ridiculous.

I wonder if a black person saying cracker would make headline news.

 

From this post I gather that in your avatar you are pointing your finger to where your brain used to be.

No you are not. Now go be dumb in another thread.

I've lived in North Carolina all my life. I'm not exactly sure where you live or who you associate with daily, but I definitely do not hear this word routinely. I certainly do not see whites casually use it towards blacks either.

People lose their jobs for saying things of this sort or less all the time. What makes him so much better?

 

Have you actually read up on this? He directed it at a black security guard who wouldn't let him backstage.

As a side note... It's crazy the power our culture gives to words, isn't it?

Honestly I can't believe the absurdity here of anyone claiming his actions do not make him a racist.

 

I am just hoping the individuals making these statements are uninformed of the entirety of the incident.
