So any black person who calls a white that word today is basically calling them "master" without even knowing it?

Hispanic is a word that does not remotely resemble or encompass it's original definition. It's a bastardized word, just like the people who claim to be Hispanic. I would not put any weight in any modern definition of the word.

No actually Cracker is from Florida cattle drivers on horseback driving cattle. Cracking a whip on an upright primate wouldn't get much done except confusion.

What do you mean now? I've always known his actual racial identity because he himself doesn't hide it lol. He is 1/8 black, Peruvian, and part white. He mentioned it on the television. Did you watch the coverage at all? One of his grandparents are as dark as Lord knows what, that grandparent is BLACK. I never said anything yet because I was too busy laughing at people on here calling him a cracker LMWAO!!! You can even look it up yourself.
I won't bother to look it up, I'll just take your word for it because at this point "Zimmy" probably thinks that it will score him some 'brownie' points with BP if he can "identify" with us.

He probably thinks that it will lessen the scrutiny over his motives for shooting Trayvon.

Nice try, "Zimmy" but no cigar !!!!

I can tell you now that if I see someone trying to break into my home, I'm not worrying or thinking about what color he is. I'm thinking about where his body is before I pop a cap in his a@s.
I agree and I am with you on that. I am a strong advocate of self defense and the right to protect one's property..........

But I'm sorry. "Zimmy" was not self defense. I honestly believe that he shot Trayvon because he wanted to, and not because he had to.

If he wanted to or planned to shoot Martin he would not have called the police beforehand and gave them his full name an location before he commits a murder.

You and I both don't really know what really happened. You think what you think and you have every right. I believe Zimmerman believed the guy was up to no good. A black person with a hoodie on in a gated suburban community...I hate to say it, but it does look << suspicious. I personally wanted manslaughter for him, but the evidence prevailed.
Zimmerman is entitled to be suspicious of whoever he wants to be suspicious of. However, he should have not gotten out of his car when he saw that Trayvon was running way from him!

Cracker was a job description for whites, it was the guy that whipped the slaves if the stopped working. The name stems from the "cracking" of the whip, thus the name cracker. It's ironic that AA's use that term as it implies the white person is someone who whips black slaves.
