if black people don't want others to say that word, don't say it in front of us. it's simple really.

you guys are too damn sensitive, they are just words.

It's not different than referring to white males as "whiteboys" or "crackers" and the fact that it's generally used in a condescending manner

People just need to get over themselves, yes racist people exist in this world in every nationality. But it's up to you, whether or not you choose to let the people affect you

Any minority at my school is treated as a novelty, and racist comments are a daily occurrence. I've become numb to it.

To be completely honest, I've received more racist comments directed toward me from my own race than from anyone else. It doesn't offend me, really, it's just disappointing.

Because 'white boy' and 'cracker' do not invoke the same historical and racial connotations as the n-word does. This should be obvious.

Has anyone ever used the term 'cracker' non-ironically?
