US Supreme Court awarded $2.5 million to a group of white firefighters in a reverse racism case. Google the US Supreme Court and read about the CASES. Who even mentioned Wikipedia?

Reverse racism = reverse discrimination.

I've got news for your dear. The US Supreme Court declaired it discrimination not reverse racism or reverse discrimination. The media called it reverse racism/discrimination so that America could identify that this was not a minority brought case but one brought on by the majority. Media invented the term to dumb it down for those not willing to read the new article simply identified as discrimination/racism but by throwing in the "reverse" label, they could immediately gain people's attention so that it could be seen at a glance white folks were bringing this case. This is another example of slag being used as a proper word. It is also a generational thing, but it is what it is and racism/discrimination are always the same even if we are talking about same sex marriage or white/black or black/white or all those other races we have in America that people seem to forget happen to inhabit our shores.

Well, whatever you want to call it, there is plenty of it happening in the world today. I have tried all my life to be kind to all humans. I can see hatred in the eyes of some people when I "go to town."

Reverse, straight-up or sideways: His wife is a RACIST and she hangs around with racists.

BTW, Nesmith is the head of the local NAACP. Now he says he stands for anyone, I wonder if he'll go against her for spouting out racial slurs.

You really ain't taking the word of the US Supreme Court are you? That bunch of idiots think they are GODS and do anything they want. I had rather go to the Pool Hall and get me a few of them to make important decisions.

I am white and over the years I have had black people call me cracker and to this day I have no idea what a cracker is unless it has to do with
the color of saltines or something, So next time a black Pearson calls you a cracker you just call them a Chocolate chip cookie.

If I can't say the N... word then others can't say cracker. It is just as offensive. It is disparaging and in bad taste. People who disparage others have no business in education.. disgusting.

Racism against whites is real in the Coffee County School System, the Coffee County Government, the State of Georgia and the United States of America. I don't have a racist bone in my body but I am for the equal and fair treatment of all individuals regardless of race. The double standard needs to be dealt with especially in the environment where our children are educated.

Do you really get offended when someone calls you a "cracker?"

If so, I'm sorry. Words only hold meaning and offense if you let them.
It's 2012 people.
double standard

It's a double standard. I'm not offended by the word, I'm offended by the hate behind it. I'm also offended that I don't have the same right to be offended.

Slander and Defamation of character are punishable crimes. Whoever started this stupid, ignorant, rumor, get ready to ask for some money for your commissary. You need to find something else to do with your time and to start get your ($&$$ facts straight. When you attack others isn't it funny how things happen to the attacker's family and not those whom they are choosing to attack. I hear doctor bills racking up and other things. God is just God you will be dealt with.

First off, there is no such thing as "reverse racism". Racism is racism, it doesn't have to be directed towards any particular race. Secondly, the word "cracker" was used in the days of slaves to describe the man with the whip.

Remember the verse in the Bible, "He without sin, let him cast the first stone." Check the facts before you take the ball and run with it. The first post says "principal wife was OVERHEARD." Get real folks, already starting out with hearsay and second hand information which will not stand in a court of law. Be careful with your slandering and defamation of character, it has been known to backfire. Get your lawyers ready Principal wife and Nesmith, I hear the chains breaking.

There is no such thing as "reverse" racism. Any race, be it black, white, yellow or brown who feels they are superior to another human being due to ethnic or racial description is racist.
