A word which is meant to be derogatory to blacks. Most people bitch about how its okay for blacks to call whites crackers, but not okay for whites to refer to blacks as niggers.

Although both words come from the times of slavery, the word nigger has become a symbol of prejudice and hatred, and was used to identify blacks as sub-human. People who dont see why the word nigger is such a big deal, dont understand the long history of racism that the word represents, and how it feels to have the n-word used in hatred against you.

The word, "cracker," is not surrounded with such a painful history.

But in reality both words shouldn't be said by anyone of either race.
nigger is a bad and hateful word.

Nigger is an adapation of the spanish word "Negro" which means the color black. As many captains of slave ships were spanish sailors, the term negro became popular through-out the slave trade culture. This word has now evolved into a racial-slur against african americans.

However, nigger has also become an accepted term amongst the black population. This has derived as a form of fighting an injustice. The majority population had give themselves a derogatory name to call the minority. Black people have taken this name and, through using it with each other, have weakened the power that white people have over them with it. The same thing has happened in the holocaust with the Jewish people calling each other the horrible monikers made up by the SS and Nazi Propaganda machine.
"You're my nigger." What used to mean "I own you slave" now means "You and I are close friends."

In a "cracker's" terms; A nigger is someone who is black and lives in the projects. This said nigger feeds off of health care, medicare, and medicaid... if it has care or aid in it - you better believe a nigger is gonna jump all up on dat ass. Many niggers also enjoy smoking crack cocaine. There are tall niggers, short niggers, skinny niggers, fat niggers, and jacked niggers. However, not all black people are niggers. Being black does not automatically make you a nigger. Look at Barrack Obama, he is a completely productive member of society... and many black people are. They are not niggers.
Dude: Hey man, do you remember that nigger we bought rocks from over in the projects?

Man: Yeah, the one with the 8 little nigger babies?

Dude: That's the one.

Man: Shit, that was some good crack.

Dude: I almost took a shit on the front porch.

Man: Hell yes.
