It did not come from "cracking a whip" don't let em fool you.

I remember 2 white teachers at my kids school were arguing the man called the lady white trailer trash she started crying 

which reminded me of the word cracker was used by rich whites towards poor whites and even poor whites towards each other.

cracker meant poor white trash

which is what this forum is filled with

theres a misconception that cracker meant crackin the whip on slaves but nope thats not what it meant

women work and family in the antebellum south mountains; wilma dunway pg 83
'one slave expressed the racial  and class stereotypes "der was no po whites in our community dey was kept back in the mountains" Mollie Moss personally felt that she "ain got time for po white trash cause dey werent teached manners and behavior"  another slave clearly saw himself as having higher status than poor whitesfor he was convinced that slaves who would associate with poor whites were outcasts and held in great contempt'

Nigguh, no one actually knows the origin of the word in the context you are on about.

It was also used in some regions as a local colloquialism for a person of local birth.

I note that none of your posts include ANY links to Oxford or any other renown dictionary or etymological sources.

Your contention is thus moot.

You also forget the most important thing, epithets mean nothing to a targeted person or population that does not fear or respect the person or community using the term.

White people are not Nigguhs, we do not chimp out when mere words are used, Nigguhs do actually kill people for calling them Nigguh or Coon, I mean, really, how emotionally immature does a person have to be to do that, to kill over a word?

If you Nigguhs actually meant something, then maybe we would be concerned with what you have to say, but you are nothing, you lost your usefulness over a hundred years ago when slavery was stopped in the US.

Fact is, you were a beast of burden to us, if a cow, horse dog or donkey could have picked the cotton, we would have used them. All the other livestock deserve our respect and gratitude for a job well-done.

You people need crating up and shipping back....or maybe just build bigger prisons...lol

technically cracker is not racist since it was started by whites who looked down on poor whites like you.
You being white know full well that you all hate being called white trash.
