According to history it was a term first used by rich white plantation owners and government heads to discourage lower class white citizens in the 1800's, they were called this because all they could buy was flour and water and made cheap bread with the ingredients forming a large cracker. Slaves on the plantations were encouraged by slaver drivers to call these lower class citizens who stole crops.

Today it is used mostly by black individuals to make fun of white individuals. Though dosent have as much impact as its cousin word "Nigger" (cuz white people weren't mass enslaved in America)
Black Guy: What up cracker!

Black Guy: What was that bitch?!
White Guy: *runs away*

Originally the white slave driver because he would "crack" the whip, hence the noun cracker.

Noun. Slang word used to refer to those of European ancestry. The word is thought to have either derived from the sound of a whip being cracked by slave owners, or because crackers are generally white in color.
I'm still waiting for the word "Cracker" to be referred to as the "C-word" the way the word "Nigger" is constantly referred to as the "N-word".

A racist insult used by blacks against white people that seemingly isn't wrong, yet it is illegal for us to defend ourselves and call them darkies or nigger. Racism against whites is racism just the same, people. Get some common sense. If black people think they are the shit like they're better than everyone else, they are mistaken.
No one is fuckin better than anyone they are equal, until your actions or reputation lowers your social status and respect, of course.
