I find that term offensive. I never use whips to beat my slaves. 

 

I honestly just put together the true association of that term. ?

 

I always thought it was like a white saltine cracker. Plain, boring and tasteless. 

 

It is MUCH worse! ?

It's like how crackalackin' means what's up NOT involvin' those crackas! A lack of crackas is good thing!

Wow! Until this post I never really thought about where the term cracker came from and what it meant. Now I get it. Guess I always just thought of it like the food, basically calling white guys plain and boring, like a cracker. 

 

I guess this is just a weird censoring issue. Are people really making a big deal over it?

Cracker is a pretty old slur dating back to the late 1500's. While it's meaning has changed a bit over the years it's meant to offend whites and Irish immigants as being poor and lower class. It has nothing to do with whip cracking slaves. At one point is was used to describe whites that were too poor to own slaves. 

 

This censor issue doesn't look like a glitch but some programmer attempting to be cute over the historical backlash.
