Do you know what “cracker” means?

NBP Samir ShabazzNew Black Panther Samir Shabazz

Most of us know about the racist New Black Panthers (NBP) calling white people “crackers.”

Here’s NBP leader Samir Shabazz in January 2012, calling for blacks to kill white people and their babies: “We’re gonna have to kill some crackers”…”We’re gonna have to kill some cracker babies … some little Penelopes and some little Rodneys” . . . .

But do you know what the word “cracker” actually means?

I didn’t, and had thought the word is somehow related to crack cocaine. Until I read a reader’s comment on a news article about human body parts being found in the sewer of a Detroit suburb:

before cowboys, the term was used to describe the slave masters who “cracked the whip”

So I went to look the word up on Urban Dictionary:

Cracker

Originally the white slave driver because he would “crack” the whip, hence the noun cracker.

Noun. Slang word used to refer to those of European ancestry. The word is thought to have either derived from the sound of a whip being cracked by slave owners, or because crackers are generally white in color.

opposite of nigger, an insult to whites… except white people aren’t dumb enough to walk around calling each other that word because it’s intended to be demeaning.

Racist term for a white person

And yet blacks, including President Lucifer’s attorney general Eric Holder, have the gall to insist blacks can’t possibly be racists, and only non-blacks — especially whites — can be and are racist.

On March 1, 2011, Holder said he was fed up with listening to whining whites who claim the Justice Department deliberately blocked investigations of black-on-white racism. Holder said, “When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, to compare what people subjected to that with what happened in Philadelphia [New Black Panthers intimidating voters in 2008], which was inappropriate .. .to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line for my people.”

In other words, what Holder was saying is that some racism is worse than others. Some racist injustice is worthy of prosecution, but racism against whites is not because whites simply haven’t suffered enough. They don’t deserve legal protection. So, any injustices committed against white people should be swept under the rug. It’s not worth Eric Holder’s time.

nahh……..they’re lying again. When I was a kid in the early 1950s, we were called “white crackers”. As in: “Saltines”. We are called “white bread” today. Same thing. To say that the word “cracker” is derived from “White slave masters” is an attempt to justify a racial slur made by blacks against whites. Screw these race mongers. The largest slave owner in the south in the 1800s was a black man. White were slaves also, to white people and were slaves to black people. (Indentured servant). Most white kids grew up with “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but… Read more »

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this amazing post and for the in-depth definition of the word, “cracker.” Frankly, I had no idea the word was used as a racial slur. And Holder’s comments are typical of his continuing biased behavior and injustice. Racism against white people has been and continues to thrive in our country!

Cracker, Honky, Whitey, or any other epithet somebody wants to call me. doesn’t describe or define me. It describes and defines them. Call me anything you want but don’t call me late for lunch.

Holder neglects the fact that European, Latino and Asian people are vastly greater in number than the privileged ex-slaves. If he pushes it much farther, he risks setting something into motion that none of us want to see.

It is obvious that blacks are much more racist than whites. Everytime a black person doesn’t have their way they sing the sorrows of racism. Bit of a white man is on the same situation blacks laugh at them. Look at the Emmy award show on Saturday. Claire Danes won the award for best actress in a drama series and fans of Kerry Washington cried racism. This is one of a million examples of blacks using the race card when they want to get their way.

Interesting for sure. I guess as long as there are people, there will be different explanations. Recently, there was an Floridian Historian and she explained the crackers title was because the early ranchers cracked their whips for driving their cattle. Which makes total sense, since that happened all over the country. For an interesting take on all this talk of white owning blacks. A great book was written covering the true travels of a French Explorer called Rene Caillie, who in 1828 traveled to Timbuctoo. Europeans had heard of that place for years and wanted it proven there really existed… Read more »

That’s a politically incorrect definition, the term “CRACKER” came from back in days when southern colonies, especially Georgia, were far removed not only from northern colonies, but itself was a collection of towns dispersed far and in between and many landowners lived outside of towns and villages–relying on once a week or once a month trips to nearest village for supplies. Villagers could hear them coming through the woods “CRACKING THE WHIP” to get their mule driven wagons into the locales to load up goods and supplies. That’s what the term “Georgia cracker” has always meant. The “cracker” term has… Read more »

The above definition of “cracker” is absolutely incorrect. The real origin comes from the Gaelic word “craic” (pronounced: krak), which means gossip or news. It was in common usage by Irish, Scots and Scots-Irish settlers, who were/are the main component of the Southern population. Sayings and greetings like “what’s the craic?” and “have you heard the craic about xxxx?” gave rise to the term “cracker” (i.e. someone who gossips). Since the white people whom blacks most often encountered were country-type or working class Irish/Scots (typically, NOT slave owners), the name cracker became a black euphemism for all white people. Cracker… Read more »

Well, OK now, I’ve listened long enough to all this this foolishness, so I’m here to set this subject ABSOLUTELY level & plumb dandy forever more! That about covers it, dontcha think? OK, here goes, and y’all hold onto yer hats and brains!! “White” now means ‘white’ as in your-a-peeing genetic stock, OK? Get a good handle on this now, caws everything else follows –or falls. I dunno, ask Steve, he knows all, but doesn’t’ spill them white kidney beans, dontcha know? University studies proved that race-mixing began in 1492, when Columbus sailed the ocean blue, and took back lots… Read more »

I have always found it interesting that this NBP leader has the same name that was one of Malcolm X Aliases.

Reblogged this on Your Dog Wouldn't Like It and commented: The Dog Says:- So it’s OK to call my Daddy (Supajohnny), “Cracker”, because he’s white (well a little pink with brownie twinges round the forelocks). In my view, if it’s OK to call my dad a “Cracker”, it’s OK to call Black people “Niggers”. How does this help anyone, Mr Holder. How does this make the world a better place for ALL people, you ASSHOLE? Anyway, supajohnny’s family were like the rest of the white working class population of Europe and North America. They were victims of the ruling classes… Read more »

The person who wrote the definition for “cracker” in the Urban Dictionary was right about one thing… White people (or at least the ones I know) don’t go around calling each other “Cracker.” It still puzzles that the same Black people who have a fit when a White person uses the “n” word, have no problem using that same word when addressing each other. Go figure

As A 5 generation Florida “Cracker” and proud of it , I offer the following. There is a collection of period buildings that have been preserved and moved to the Fla State Fairgrounds called “Cracker Country” an historical living museum staffed by volunteers in period clothes demonstrating everyday living in the late 1800’s into the early 1900’s. There are informational signs explaining that the early Fl. cowboys used whips to control the cattle in the swamps and woods, the brush was too thick to use lassos. Thus the name was used for the hardy cowboys that herded cattle here. Note… Read more »

I had heard the explanation of the whip cracking as the reason for that epithet about whites in general–and, the one about the soda cracker, too–but, whatever the truth of it’s origin, what really matters at this point is how it’s now being used by blacks when referring to whites–it’s a racial slur when they use it–I know it’s been claimed that blacks can’t be racists, only whites can, which I find totally incredible nonsense– –but, what’s needed now is ‘fence mending’, not more excuses, by those like Holder and the current occupant of the WH, as to why one… Read more »

Sadly Holder is the racist, he holds the position of AG. I believe that means equal justice for all black or white.
