  1. I’m a cracker. But I think my emotions tend to the “strongly like” cheese.

  2. I don’t understand…

      Think of it this way:
      a white calling a black N****R EQUALS a black calling a white “CRACKER.” *
      * except in Florida, where the term historically refers to the original Georgia and Alabama settlers of Northern florida, who used to crack whips in the air to keep their cattle in line

      I’m from Alexandria, as white as it gets, but I never perceived “cracker” as pejorative. At least not so much as blacks do… um… that word Tarantino uses a lot… you know… ******.

      @Kafu Bauch
      What?! What the f are you babbling again?

      Sorry, not enough coffee this morning.
      You said: Alexandria.
      I meant: Torpedo Factory or Egypt?

    • American In Vienna July 24, 2017

      @kauf
      Yeah… Greece, Egypt… whatever.
      No, Alexandria, VA. Happy?

    • A Brit won’t understands this as the Brits are not such racists as the Americans. You can see mixed couples in Britain very often and no one seems to care. In the US they come with torches and pitchforks after mixed couples.

  3. Apparently its a racist term used to descripe whites. http://bit.ly/1W13ql3

  4. Thanks for the explanations. We don’t use that word in Great Britain unless we are describing a dry biscuit that goes well with cheese.

      Well, you see the reason of you not understanding what “cracker” means is you don’t know what a biscuit is. A biscuit is a baked often fluffy bread about 2 inches in diameter and maybe an inch tall. Best eaten with cream gravy with little bits of sausage mixed in. A pair of biscuits and gravy can be called a complete breakfast in some part of the lower half of the U.S. Yankees eat it sometimes as well.

    • Point of interest (or not): There’s a hardtack cracker called Sailor Boy pilot bread (and in smaller print on the box cracker) that’s about 3 inches in diameter, maybe 2-3 times the thickness compared to the usual US cracker and depending on local frame of reference is not quite bread, biscuit or cracker. I’ve not found it much outside Alaska so I was surprised to find them on the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana last year.

  5. Yeah, but it’s racism against whites, which seems to be acceptable.

    If that’s the sign in the mild cheese section (packages below & to the right), is there one for the extra-sharp cheddars & Limburger that says “honky mother****** love cheese”?

    What word are you all talking about? Is it this one? https://youtu.be/hqIsc8ooXug

  8. Nah, that’s just bigotry. Racism is an entire system set in place to benefit a particular race at the expense of other races. In America, that’s white people at the expense of nonwhites. In Japan, the system benefits Asians (Japanese in particular), so bigotry towards white people in Japan would be actual racism.
