A pejorative term for a White person in the United States who takes it upon himself to assume authority over others they deem inferior without any official justification often in an indignant or self important manner.

When used as an insult, it is a metaphor in the sense that when herding animals, the owner hires working class men to crack a whip to tend his herd. The herders or cowboys have no real authority other than to crack the whip and do what their boss says - the man with the real power. When used as a slur, 'craking the whip' means to run ones mouth, complain, rant, bitch and moan, blog, etc because as a schlub, that is all he can do; essentially a wimp.
Don't listen to what crackers have to say, all they have is their words.

The only thing worse than a cracker is a cracker with a badge, they think the own the place.

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.
