The N word versus Cracker.

This is one of the best articles that I have read in a long time. Lets see how well Swampbubblers understand what Columnist Parker is saying.

words-drive some very, very, very, insecure, base , and violent folks into a frothing, frenzy not normally seen in humans.

I think a lot of the "frothing frenzy" is fake. If it doesn't bother liberals of any color that Bill Maher calls Sarah Palin the "C" word - then I seriously doubt the "N" word bothers them at any deep level either. People of all races who use filthy derogatory terms about ANYBODY should be shunned by all.

But when you consider how many, of all races, buy filth laced CD's and DVD's with all manner of bad words, many that demean and dehumanize women... and feed into the violence perpetrated by our society's low-lifes. And when you consider how many of the populace who pride themselves on their liberalism ... laugh along with Bill Maher... including some women, both black and white.... then it's a little difficult to believe their professed horror and shock over the "n" word.

When liberals, in general, clean up their moral act, in general, THEN and only then will I believe that ANYTHING bad or wrong upsets them.

Maher is just stating facts. Palin is a "C word". A dumb "C word" at that.

I expect that most Swampbubblers will understand what the columnist is saying http://www.suntimes.com/news/mitchell/20986972-452/mitchell-the-n-word-s...

purnhrt the article you cite is written by someone who draws wide conclusions.

"But the best explanation of crackers can be found in "The Cracker Kitchen," a cookbook and story collection by novelist and proud cracker Janis Owens. It is a both a cultural defense and literary critique of the poor, white folks whence Owens (and most of us Scots-Irish) came -- an unfrilly valentine pressed between recipes for fried frog legs and baked armadillo. The daughter of a fire-breathing Pentecostal preacher, Owens traces "cracker" to William Shakespeare's "The Life and Death of King John:" "What cracker is this same that deafe our eares with this abundance of superfluous breath?"

The term cracker as it applies here comes not from Shakespeare or a critique of the poor. No the answer is much more simpler.

The term cracker comes from the white slave foreman who cracked the whip upon the slaves. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cracker_%28pejorative%29#cite_note-7 note their citation from an 1842 book. This is by far much more logical for the perjorative than the explaination put forth by Ms. Parker and it explains away Ms. Parker's citation to "The Cracker Kitchen"

So when she says:
"-- Deny a white person a seat at the lunch counter;
-- Systematically deny whites the right to vote;
-- Deny a white person a seat near the front of a bus;
-- Crack the skulls of peaceful white protesters marching for equality;
-- Blow up a church and kill four little white girls;"

She is wrong. It is a conserted effort to link a person to a racist connotation from history. Unless if you literally think GZ is a slave foreman.

It's easy to figure out why this linked article lacks logic. Parker obviously contracted an STD just by being in the same room as her former CNN co-host Eliot (Client #9) Spitzer, and it has diminished her brain function (as medical websites claim STDs can do).

If African-Americans would end violence against each other how much of a difference could it make in crime stats? Here's one man's opinion
http://www.indystar.com/article/20130620/OPINION13/306200046/Abdul-Hakim... An excerpt-Looking at a breakdown of crime victims by ethnicity, 64 percent of the victims were black. And for those who want to go down the conspiracy road, allow me to stop you now. Nearly half the murders between Jan. 1 and June 3 were the result of black-on-black crime. The average age of black male victims was 27 years old, and the average age of black male suspects was 25. In fact, more than 50 percent of the suspects were also black. And 82 percent of the murders occurred on the North, Northeast or East sides. In 32 percent of the murders, the victim and the suspect were either friends or acquaintances.

FROM NOW ON, THE RACIST WORD "CRACKER" WILL NO LONGER BE TOLORATED BY EUROPEON AMERICANS.

ANYONE WHO USES THE RACIST WORD "CRACKER" IS OBVIOUSLY A WHITE HATING BIGOTED RACIST.

I'LL SUE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU RACIST SCUMBAG DIRT LICKERS WHO CALLS ANY EURPOEON AMERICAN THE DEROGATORY AND RACIALLY CHARGED WORD "CRACKER"

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

"EUROPEON" ... I see what you did there. LOLing.

I do believe the proper term is European-Americans. Fair's fair, right?

Time to de-melt the pot.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Celebrity chef Paula Deen remains under fire for a racial slur she admitted to using in the past.

"The woman of her vocabulary and her mentality and business, I was very disappointed that would lie in the back of her mind," says Lois Morris.

"I just can't believe she lost everything -- sponsorship and everything she had," says Matthew Hofmann.

On Thursday, Target announced it would end its relationship with Deen. It's the latest company to cut ties with the cook.

Louisville businessman Mark Gunn says it's the catalyst for a new marketing campaign that he says is much-needed. Mark Gunn says many times, African Americans call each other the same word that cost Deen her television show.

"The campaign is called the "My N***a?- No!" Initiative. It is to get African Americans to take a look at this double-standard that seems to be here about the use of that word," says Mark Gunn.

He says there is sometimes a double-standard when it comes to this word, and he wants to raise awareness about the way it's being used. The racial slur can be heard in movies and music videos.

Mark Gunn says the word is especially controversial within the African American community. "There's a segment of us that are trying to take that word and change that definition and have been using it as a term of endearment, but I think the majority of us who actually know the history of the word and the baggage that comes along with it think that's wrong-headed and see the damage that word has caused," says Mark Gunn.

He's now hoping others will take a stand with him in this new campaign that's he's taken to social media, where he's calling on people to think about the words they are using.

"Part of that problem is that we are not looking at the problems in our own community. This is one of those problems and is why we are taking a look at it", says Mark Gunn.

Gunn says this new campaign is not about banning the word. He says it has an important historical significance, and should be used in the proper context.

Good luck, Mr Gunn. You won't win. Blacks are allowed to be racist, often extremely racist. Whites aren't. This stupidity will continue until some truly catastrophic rioting results.

Some Blacks are racist, but they don't think they are, just like some Euro's are racist, but don't think they are.

Some? Seriously? Black culture from the top to the bottom is drenched in two basic racist awarenesses:

1. Awareness of being Black and all the historical luggage associated with it (which no longer applies, BTW).

2. Awareness that extant society is "White", hence that is some farcical cause for condemnation.

Black culture by those two features alone is extremely racist. But Liberals won't allow this to be said. I just got kicked off of ToledoTalk's front page for these sorts of issues, because Liberals won't allow this to be said. But it's gotta be said, before you wake up to your own building or house being set on fire from "some" Blacks rioting.

It is, to coin a phrase, time to call a spade a spade. Blacks are racist as a culture. Islam is violent as a culture. Liberals are Fascist as a culture. It's time to oppose all these... while we're still in the time when it can be accomplished civilly, meaning peacefully. Because without solutions being sought, the later adjustments will have to be made violently.

Says the racist white guy who hasn't faced any repercussions after stating "Blacks are going to take it out on any part of society that isn't Black, meaning anything that can be looted and then turned into crack cocaine and cheap liquor."

There's a city full of walls you can post complaints at

I'm not a European-American. I'm an American White person. And if I'm called anything other than that, I'll call THAT person whatever I feel like calling THEM.

why american White person? why not just american? I work with canadians every day and they have never heard of an african-canadian, even tho they have black folks up there. they have a TON of asians up there and they dont call themselves asian canadians either...

it's funny that "the great melting pot" has tossed so many hyphens into the soup.

I've heard the word many times, and it was never used in a compliminary context. To me it's a derrogatory term meaning a mean, evil, racist person from Euro decent.

You and GZ have issues, your both two peas in a pod with this racists issue. So you believe all Euro's are racists and Gz believe's all blacks are racists. And the beat goes onnnnnnnnnnn... And by the way Euro's includes people via African, North American, Caribbean, Central American or South American and Oceanian nations, which have a large European diaspora. So based on the above coverage your both right to the extent that it pertains to those who are racists.

"DTOM" {1776} " We The People" {1791}

Obviously when you put down the malt liquor you're drinking, and sober up, you can see from my English that I've criticized Black culture as being racist.

Don't you all think that everyone ,whether black or white , is prejudice to some degree about something or someone?

No

No, only the Euros are.
