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.
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
It is an incredibly stupid double standard, that should not be dismissed so easily. It is still racism.
Man is then sued for using the word nigger in above sentance.
2) A term that ignorant assholes don't think is bad due to the fact that white people were once slaveowners. Somehow, black people, nor every other race on the face of the fucking earth, have ever treated people badly. Except for the fact that black tribes sold their <b>slaves</b> to white men, thus initiating the slave trade. Also, these people are under the impression that we must forever carry a burdon and be subject to their bullshit racism for something our ancestors did, not us.
3) A person who shall forever be blamed for the rest of the worlds downfalls. White people have supposedly done nothing for the world, except invent the majority of things that you use today (to include the computer you're using right now).
Dipshit 2) "Fo' real, nigga? Wut be da reason"
Dipshit 1) "Aww, that nigga just robbed a liqour store and shot da owna in da face point blank."
Dipshit 2) "Fuck those crackers. They're the reason I dropped out of school, had 5 kids from 4 different bitches, and started smoking crack!!!"

Crackers are most commonly a food item made from wheat or grain, often salted. Crackers are used as a base or vessel for spreads or dips. RJR-Nabisco produces several brand names of crackers such as Ritz, Triscuit, Wheat Thins, Cheese Nips, and Premium. Other brands include North Carolina based Lance corporation, and Keebler, which makes Club, Munch ‘ems, Wheatables, and Town House. The “Body of Christ” communion wafers are made from unleavened bread.
A highly misinterpreted word, but which has come to mean Caucasian. However, the word originated from the American civil war of the 1860s. During this time, Florida, which was a neutral state, provided supplies to many southern states. These supplies were delivered via horse drawn carriage. The drivers used a whip for driving these horses, and thus the slaves called them “Crackers” as they cracked their whips. When the slaves heard the cracking of the whip, they would say “Crackers’ a comin,” and thus the Floridians were given this nickname.
However, over time, the Floridians kept the name in their vocabulary, not as a racial term, but as a badge of honor. (Author is a genuine Cracker from Ft. Lauderdale) The now free slaves began to refer to southerners as “crackers.” Eventually, the term was used as a general term for a white person. It’s the equivalent of nigger or spic, used for blacks and Hispanics respectively. Among other common racial epithets for whites are honky, which comes from the term honky-tonk, a western style saloon, or a type of upright piano used for ragtime music.
Other usages include the Criminal Hacker, A.K.A. “Cracker,” a person who pirates software or commits illegal acts via a computer’s Internet connection. Hackers fall under White Collar Crime.

Cracker can also mean the device used to open a canister of Nitrous Oxide (N20), also called Laughing Gas, which is an inhalant and anesthetic most commonly used in dental work and oral surgery. N20 is a gas; it’s occasionally used in cars as a very high performance fuel. N20 is also found in airbags as the propellant gas that expands them. N20 is comprised of 2 Nitrogen and 1 Oxygen molecule.
