used to describe a person born and raised in florida ie "florida cracker", or a descendant from early british settlers in florida, and sometimes also refers to natives from surrounding states such as georgia or alabama. the name is derived from early ranchers (who were also what made gator wrestling the sport it is today) that cracked bullwhips to move and catch their cattle, as opposed to using lariats. because many people don't know that's how the term cracker came to be, it is often used incorrectly with a predominantly racist and/or negative connotation by african americans to refer to white people.
he was a true and proud cracker, born and raised in the state of florida.
