Now.. to all you fine caucasian folk out there. Do you actually find the word 'cracker' offensive? I mean.. somebody can say anything and if you intuit a bad intent then offense will be had. But is 'cracker' at all threatening on it's own? Like, if somebody called me a 'Beaner', a term I only learned after I left El Paso, ironically, I would mostly find it funny. Wetback, though, implies that I don't belong in the U.S. What's cracker mean to you?
EDIT: FYI, I wasn't intending for this thread to be about racial slurs. I was hoping for something more, general.. and out of use. I guess we're here now. I also have never heard the word 'Spic' being used in my lifetime.
