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..
black man: yeah, that might be part of the reason

someone who "cracks" security-protected software. Can be just copy protection, time-limited demos, etc.
i *think* in this case, "crack" is like a contraction of "code break". Either way, it dates back to the code-making and code-breaking of WWII. Especially as most serial number generation sequences have their roots in the exact same mathematics as the secret codes used back then.
"i just figured out how to get this game working without needing the CD. I'm a cracker, i cracked the game's copy protection"

Similar to the word nigger - a racially defining term that is inherently racist. However, unlike the term nigger, cracker is not remotely taboo to use against Caucasians by Americans of African descent as nigger is when used by Caucasians to identify Americans of African descent. See double standard, reverse racism.
Bill Gates is one rich cracker!

1-A word inspired by the "crack" sound made by the whip of a slave driver used to denote a white person or group of white people that are punishing peoples of color for bias rules or laws that they themselves created as means to oppress. 2-A word considered by many ignorant white people to be the equivalent of "nigger".
That cracker ass pussy punched a young black girl in the face for jaywalking.

What kind of retard compares "cracker" to "nigger" when "nigger" is a term created to DEHUMANIZE an entire group of people and "cracker" is not even close to a term for dehumanizing?

You are a cracker because you constantly down the accomplishments of people of color.

An offensive term directed toward "white" people. Usually used by racist "black" people, but sometimes used by morons against their own race. People who use this word usually use other word stereotypes and/or have bad grammer. Often brushed off one's shoulder if called the name. Usually dished out by people who can't handle being called a racist term themself.
racist: Yo homies look at dat cracker walkin' on our "turf"! Lets jump him/her!
victim: You don't own this place and you have no right to call me racist terms!
racist: Hey! You racist fo yellin' at a black person! This cracker deserves to die for being right and not going mah way!
victim: Sorry, what was that you said? I speak english not moron.
END

moron1: "Outta mah way cracker, you be in mah way."
moron2: "You shut yo mouth nigger!"
moronic-teacher-passing-by: "Moron2! get your ass down to the principal's office NOW!"
moron2: "But he call me a cracker!"

The ultimate double standard that nobody can really complain about without being racist. Means "white person," opposite of "nigger."
