Noun. Derogatory term for "white person". Based on other popular definitions, the word is a also a precious excuse for passive-agressive white people who think they are victims and take this term as irrefutable evidence of the existence of reverse racism. The latter, incidentally, implies that there is some natural direction that racism is SUPPOSED to run...and that's towards black people. Not crackers.
Did you hear that black dude call me a cracker? It's so unfair that he can call me a cracker and I can't call him a nigger. I really WANT to call him a nigger, but if anyone caught wind of it it might hurt my senate campaign...and besides, I'm late for a benefit. God, I feel so OPPRESSED!
Why can't I shoot him for calling me a cracker, mom? He'd shoot me for calling him a nigger! Either that, or he'd use his considerable socio-economic influence to get me thrown in prison "for racism". And those places are just crawling with people of color.
