Sure Cracker might not mean the nastiest thing BUT you kno damn right when someone says it they are directing it towards white folks for a specific reason sure noone goes around just saying it.
Hes black why cant i bring it up ? Cause its entertainment ? Beat it
again because the word has different context and meaning...the n word is a vile word whose roots is based on hatred and demeaning of black ppl, cracker isn't a demeaning nor vile word which is based of a superior factual past...the reason it is deemed bad/negative to whites is because it is a little reminder where many of the come from, and that evil/horrid past plague by whites, that many try to avoid/not knowledge because it is unpleasant to them...
Calling a white person a cracker is the equivalence of calling a person who parents who had murdered/etc did a heinous crime many years ago and are trying to move forward and past it. Sure it may not apply today at this moment at this time, but at some point they murdered someone hence was a murdered...
So its not the same, calling someone something that is factually true, although they avoid it, hate to acknowledge it or accept it, is waaaaaaaaaaaaay different then calling someone something that is demeaning/demoralizing and still holds truth etc...today.
