Dog catchers are more cautious when they encounter a pit bull or a rottweiler than when they encounter a golden retriever or an English sheepdog. It's not racism; it's statistics.

Okay, so, all of you who don't get it, watch this, on YouTube, and tell us you still don't get it. If you can still claim it, I pity you.

So, how long before the term 'N-word' becomes racist itself? Will we need to call it 'the hyphonated word formarly know as the 'N-word'.'?

Similar to Larry Niven's Known Space series of novels (Ringworld, Flatlander, etc) where the words and sounds used to censor profanity now have become profanity themselves in the future.

The characters actually say 'what the bleep' and 'Censor the people' in order to shock people.

2 cents worth:
Blacks can say n*gger (or nigga) but whites aren't allowed. It's political correctness run amok. Personally, I don't use the word n*gger because there's just no need to. I work in black neighborhoods quite frequently and have noticed one glaring thing. If you're friendly and sincere to them, you have no problems from them. But that goes for people of most all races. The negative connotation that came from n*gger was from inferiority complexes and later, from fear. Political correctness is destroying this country.

If you're comparing the badness of two words, and you won't even say one of them, you're a fapping liberal f***tard.

It amazes me that people think they're the same. There is no historical repression attached to Cracker.

It's an insult yes, but it lacks the depth of cultural degradation that the N word has.

A church is burned/blown up in the south with children in it. Afterwards Crackers make statements to the effect of "Fu*k those little N words.

Or a black child in Alabama is call the N word on her first day of school surrounded by an angry mob of Crackers.

These are all small examples of how deep of an insult the word is. How it was used to deepen the emotional assault in situations that were already demeaning and destructive to their psyche.

When used in modern times, the effect isn't just a race specific insult. The effect is a reminder that at one point they weren't equal and hated. The word brings up the emotions of the past and that the times haven't change, rather people just hide it better.

Both are insults therefore they are equally bad.
The difference is how people react.
White people laugh it off and don't get all uppity about it.



Even the fag gets it!


See what I did there.

DrProfessor-"i care what you mean when you use it."

See, that's just it. OTHER'S have taken it upon themselve to determine WHAT you meant when you used it, and trumpet it to the nearest news station.

It doesn't even have to BE racist, it just has to SOUND racist.

Like the city counselor who called the white counselor racist for calling a devision a 'beucratic black-hole'. Actual quote: "Why didn't he call it a white hole?"

Or the multiple cases where someone has been fired, repremanded and/or forced to attend sensitivity training for using the word 'niggardly', which derives from the Norse 'nigla', which has never had ANYthing to do with race. But it SOUNDS racists, so using it will get you labeled thus.

Gerry1of1-"don't get all uppity about it."

Sorry to break it to you Gerry, but 'uppidty' has been deemed racist. You racist.

The "their ancestors were slaves and constantly abused" argument is getting old.

Newsflash: People from all races have been enslaved throughout history. As far as you go back in recorded history you'll see that any population that was vulnerable could be, and was, enslaved by those who were more powerful. Even the word "slave" comes from the Slavic people who were enslaved by the Romans. Throughout world history the majority of slaves weren't African.

It's not about 'restricting your freedom of speech' or anything. You can say whatever the hell you want, legally. It's just a matter of being empathetic for other people's feelings. If you gave a f*ck about the issues another person has dealt with their entire lives, you shouldn't go and remind them of it for no reason. It's an unkind thing to do.

I think the whole "N-word" business is idiotic, though. If you're going to be discussing it anyway, using a substitution doesn't actually change anything. It's the subject that matters, not the letter combination. So you might as well just use it and not sound like a kindergartner trying to make a swear.

The conclusion is false, anyway, regardless of the words and how they might be compared.

If an insult against one group of people is allowed and an insult against another group of people is not allowed, it doesn't say anything about which insult is worse. What it does is indicate which group of people it is socially acceptable to insult and which it is not.

@Shelworth--No, you can say cracker because it was never used as a dismissive term to rub in an entire race's status as "inferior."

Let me put it this way: in the end, they're both just words. However one brings up a long, horrible, bloody history, and the other one does not. When you can say that the word cracker reminds you of how your grandparents were spit on and beaten and refused entry to much of society, of how your further ancestors were worked near to death, raped, and abused as meat-machines of farm labor, all on account of race, then you can be hurt by it.

It's not the word, it's the utterly f*cked up history that the word is intimately tied to.

I tried to convince a black co-worker of mine that we need to go to Paula Dean's restaurant in Savannah. I said he should poke his head in the door and say "Niggars!" just like Chappelle Show: The Niggar Family

We laughed for about 20 minutes thinking about this.

It's just a word, forget the words and concentrate on the violence instead.

No, you can say "Cracker" because it's OK to insult white people.
