After the Civil War,some whites were so poor they had to crack their own corn because the could not afford mill.
That cracker thinks he's high and mighty. He forgot where he came from.

Derogatory term for lower income Caucasians in the South. Also know as po' white trash. Usually make their living as sharecroppers.

Comes from grinding or "cracking" corn to use for cornmeal rather than buying cornmeal or flour at a store.

Not a saltine cracker.
Not a wealthy plantation owner.
Not a Massa crackin' de whip
The song:
Jimmy crack corn but I don't care....De Massa gone d'away

Out of the way, cracker!

Cracker is a game played between 2 or more people with dicks. A cracker is placed before each crank and on the count of 3 the participants race to ejaculate on their cracker. The last one to complete the orgasmic release must eat everyone else's spooge covered saltine.
Dude! You lost! Eat that jizz covered, crispy bread! You suck at Cracker! Maybe you should take up sucking dick!

American slang for a Southern white man, used as a slur to suggest white trashiness, an uneducated, low-class or poor man. Derived from those who would distill moonshine liquor from fermentation of dried, cracked corn.
"You know, they think that because of who I am and where my political base has traditionally been, they may want me to go sort of hustle up what Lawton Chiles used to call the 'cracker vote' there." - President Bill Clinton, 2008. on Larry King Live (CNN).

Not to be confused with the lower-case-initialled word, Cracker is a kick-ass police drama series from the UK starring Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid in the Potter movies) as a criminal psychologist in the employ of Her Majesty's Police. He is Scottish (of course) and grimly determined to have show-down after show-down with his wife over his additions to gambling, cigarettes and alcohol. Has a bit on the side with Sergeant Jane Penhaligon (whom he refers to as "Panhandle"), played by Geraldine Somerville (Lily Potter in the movies). He is deeply pessimistic and cynical and possessed of an ineluctable Celtic perception (sans tinsel and cliched stuff; think of the real Scotland) of the fundamental bleakness of the human condition. Sarcastic as hell. Unforgettable.
Oh, yes, the criminal cases are kind of interesting, too.
Did you catch Cracker on the tube the other night? Did you see the bit where Coltrane's smarmy colleague jumps off the roof?

A loud bigoted white person. See also Poor White Trash The first recognized usage of the term can be traced to a letter to The Earl of Dartmouth in 1766. By the 19th century, the term was commonly used by more affluent whites to insult poorer whites.
Certain WHINY white people who rather like to imagine themselves victims of 'reverse racism' fail to realize the term Cracker oiginated from the British who looked down on poor American white people. They should learn read books before they type inane half truths on the internet.
