A word used by black people to tease them, just like nigger.

It comes from black people who noticed the white people having pale skin and relativly dry much like a salty cracker wafer.
It was first used and publicised by the Black Panthers and Malcome X who at the time said White Cracker. It was also used by Bill Clinton to describe white voters to win the vote of black people in the US.

White people think this word comes from Slavery when the white man would use the whip or cat & 9 tails, which is false and wrong.

The word originated in the Southern states in the US and in Britain.

The word can also be used to describe "Poor" white people on welfare from trailor parks used by the white man.

Conclusion: A derogatory word to describe the White man, like honkey and cracker baby. Though white people think its no offensive, it is very much so. That if you call them a cracker, there face will Turn red immidiatly.
white man: her nigger
black man: hey cracker

black man: Whats good cracker, you do know that every race other then crackers hate you.
white man: i though so, thats why I dont have friends..

Crackers were poor white folk who lived in the south during the antebellum era. Given their name because of their staple diet of crack-corn, crackers were often hired by plantation owners in order to replace a slave in dangerous jobs. The high prices of slaves during the 1830s and 40s made It efficient to use a cracker rather than a slave. If a planter lost or injured a slave he would be pressed to buy another slave, but if the cracker got injured or died, finacially, the planter would have been unaffected. Crackers had a very low standard of living. Many of them lived in forests and dug holes in the ground to live in. despite their living conditions and their social status, crackers stilled believed they were better than the african slaves. Today, cracker is often used as a derogatory term for a white person for obvious reasons. It implies a person who lives in the utmost worst conditions and a person who no one really cares about.
Southern Women: We have some water dripping into the house. I think it is comin from the roof.
Southern plantation owner: I'll get a cracker to fix it.

A device used to "crack" the seal on Nitrous cartridges for inhaling the N20 for a high. The cracker is commonly aluminum, brass or plastic and simply accepts a N20 cartridge (intended for dispensing whip-cream) and pierces the seal, allowing the gas to escape in a controlled fashion. A baloon is attached to the device to capture the gas and allow it to absorb enough heat to be inhaled safely.
Man don't try to suck it straight outta the cracker, your lips will freeze to it.

The word "Cracker" was coined in the south by white slave owners. Slave owning whites refered to non slave owning, or poor whites as "crackers." Although it is considered in this day and age to be derogitory word for whites, if you know the history behind the word it is actually a form of flattery.
"You ignorant cracker, the word didn't come from the sound of a whip!"

A computer expert who specialises in removing protection mechanisms from commercial software. These protections often limit (cripple) the software functionality or render the software unoperatable after a certain number of uses or when a expiry date is reached.
This activity is ilegal in many countries because it forces the software developers to increase the price of their products in order to recover lost revenue.
A cracker will usually have low level programming experience and a detailed technical understanding of commercial software protections.
Hardware protections are the best defence against crackers because they require great technical expertise to circumvent.

An very attractive and enticingly sexy woman.

Possibly derived from Firecracker or Crackerjack. The word visually describes how an such a woman excites a man's mind, emotions and passions.

Sadly, this wonderfully expressive word is under threat due to the rise of alternative meanings.
She's a beauty - real cracker!", he exclaimed passionately. "I felt like all firecrackers and champagne corks in the world were whizzing, crackling and popping at once.
