<quoted text>Yes slut, I'm fully aware on how the word was/is used. Context means everything. I reiterate, why is it okay to be PC about the "N" word and not about the "C" word; length of time used? Please.
Didn't you just say something last week about how you're not denigrating?

I don't think anyone says it's okay to use either word. But when one word is linked with slavery and oppression, how can you not understand why one is more offensive than another?

When you hear either word, which is more abrasive to you?
You don't know the origin of "cracker" and in addition, you are asking a Northerner who may or may not know the true origin of the word.

You're brilliant.

No, what you're doing is proving that you're a egotistical, self-important ass. And what's more laughable is that you act so while clearly being unable to form grammatically correct or sometimes even coherent sentences.
I personally don't really care about the outcome of this case. It doesn't have any effect on me or anything relevant in my life. Whether or not Zimmerman goes to jail won't interrupt my daily life and Martin is still going to be dead.
You sure butt in on a lot on subjects that have no effect on your life.

It's what leftists do when they have no proof.

Yes, because fortunately more people are not of the same mind as you and are learning to see past color. Racism, prejudice and -isms still exist, have always existed and will always exist. Anyone who says otherwise is a fool.

You don't know anymore than anyone else does how Martin was approached and what Zimmerman was doing. He SAYS he didn't have his weapon out, but we don't know that and we never will for sure.

If ANY person approached me and did so in a threatening manner and I felt like my life was threatened, I would put up a fight. Anyone can carry any weapon they like - the moment they pull it out on me, I'm going to defend myself.

Much of the country is laughing at the “ghetto” black girl who keeps getting tripped up in her story. But Jeantel has made a lot more sense than it may have seemed.

Yes, she was dissimulating in pretending that Trayvon Martin’s referring to Zimmerman as a “creepy-ass cracker” wasn’t “racial”—of course it was. Cracker is today’s “honkey,” a word now about as antique as The Jeffersons in which George used it so much. It is both descriptive and pejorative, although it’s important to note that according to Jeantel, Martin was not calling Zimmerman a cracker to his face but when trying to give his friend on the phone an update on where the creepy cracker was.

The origins of the word in reference to persons as opposed to snacks is obscure, but most likely started when cracking could mean bragging in Elizabethan English. Upper-crust colonial Americans had a way of referring to lower-class British immigrants to the South as loud-mouthed “crackers,” as in boastful beyond their proper station.

Pretty soon the word just referred to the people, period, with elegant Central Park architect Frederick Law Olmsted even casually writing in 1850 after a Florida jaunt that “some crackers owned a good many Negroes.”

Jeantel may well have heard some whites in Florida using the word for themselves with a kind of in-group pride – just as black people use the N-word that way. But surely she knows that’s a different meaning, just as anyone who claims it’s okay for Paula Deen to have used the N-word because Jay-Z does is faking it.

What do you care who I would and wouldn't date?

Having a preference doesn't make me racist anymore than not dating women makes me homophobic.

Arse-backwards, Manilow.

The exact discussion involves the fact that blacks demand special privileges based on upon their color -- specifically, the privilege [if one would call it such] of employing the "N" word, with immunity...while demonizing any non-black who does so.

For all of your collective brilliance, you don't seem to realize that "cracker" "cracka", etc., is used as a racial slur by blacks in the South against whites because slaves used to be cracked by a whip. It is highly offensive, and used intentionally to push buttons.

By contrast, you'll always be known as the racist woman who won't date blacks because she's afraid of angering her racist father.
