Pejorative term originally referring to only poor southern whites who "barely survived on eating crackers." Rich whites would call the poor whites "crackers."

Since, it has lost its original meaning the ruling whites intended for these serf-whites and now it is more commonly used by black people to offensively refer to any white person, regardless of social or economic standing.

Looks like those poor white people in the swamps and jungles of LA and MS won't EVER be able to "take the word back" so to speak.
Wealthy Southern Politician: We'll send in a wedge candidate to some of those dumb hick towns and split up the cracker- votes.

Southern Police Chief: We can let a small drug shipment get through and let the niggers and crackers kill each other for it.

Swamp Person: now we'll nevah be able tu "take back" du Cracka name.

After the Civil War,some whites were so poor they had to crack their own corn because the could not afford mill.
That cracker thinks he's high and mighty. He forgot where he came from.

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"

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.
