1. A derogatory term used by historically oppressed people and others to belittle white people.

2. Originally from the sound of a slave master's whip. Has been used to identify oppressive, racist, ignorant, whites.

Whites who feel threatened by these oppressed and disadvantaged people will say that a black person calling a white person "cracker" or "honkey" is the same as a white person calling a black person "nigger." While the derogatory implications are similar, only "nigger" has been used by a people of power to enslave, victimize, rape, inprison, and institutionally oppress blacks. "Cracker" does not have this history.
Very few whites have been called "cracker" and hung afterwards.

There is no such thing as a "Jolly Cracker Bank" for young black children to save their allowance in. Search ebay and you can find a "Jolly Nigger Bank" for your white kids.

A "cracker" is someone who holds the whip to beat his slaves. A "nigger" is the abused slave.

2.
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".

4.
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.
Synonym: Honkey
Antonym: Nigger
