    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.

    ^Coming from Florida, some old, isolated communities may not find the term cracker offensive at all. Florida crackers.

    Wow.. yeah, the more uncomfortable stuff usually comes as a 'compliment'. I was looking at a list of offensive racial and gender related words and phrases, the phrase, "You are a credit to your race" come up there. I've been told by my kid's grandparents that they always wanted 'little brown babies' running around their house, like they see at the supermarket. Ehh.. not exactly a bad sentiment, but ???. Also, I've been told that I'm okay, because I'm not really Mexican. Well, not untrue exactly, but ???.

    I would mostly find cracker offensive if the person was obviously a racist...otherwise, no, not at all.

    Hillbilly, strangely enough, is a term I will accept with pride, because I translate it to simply being from West Virginia (or other parts of the mountainous Appalachian region, like Eastern Kentucky, Eastern Tennessee, and Western North Carolina).

    Redneck is much more insulting.

    hahha...I like the term saucy. And salty.

    Some of these terms you might still hear in the South, while you don't hear them on mainstream American television.

    I've heard that it was originally supposed to be a less offensive word for black people than "n****r"; dunno if that's correct, though.

    Fun fact: in Portuguese, it's quite acceptable to say someone is negro ("dark"), but it's pretty offensive to call someone a preto ("black"). Language works in funny ways, no?
