A small, very dry, square treat made of refined flour. Some crackers have salt sprinkled on top; i.e. saltines. Most have tiny holes going through them--not sure why, though

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.

A racial slur used by blacks to demean whites, it refers to the time in the USA when a slave master would "crack" a whip to get the slaves to work. It's often shortened to "cracka."

It is supposed to be the comeback against nigger or darkie, however the problem being that most white people just don't give a damn if they are called cracker, honkey, or any other racial slur attributed to their race.
Use of cracker:

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.
