The word ‘Cracker’: A white guy’s perspective
The origins of the word ‘Cracker’ as a term for describing white people is up for debate but most scholars agree that it was created in the early Nineteenth century. A cracker was basically the guy who carried a whip hence *cracking* a whip. As a 22 year old white guy from the ‘south’ I cannot recall a black person ever calling me a cracker. If a person called me a cracker my response would be a lot how Louis C.K. put it: ”ugh, ruined my day. Boy, shouldn’t have called me a cracker… bringing me back to owning land and people; what a drag.”
Random white guy, you’re cool with me.
This is being described as “violent” and an “assault.” Seriously.
Talk about playing the victim card…
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA holy shit omfg
I CAN’T STOPE LOAUGHING
Remember when George Zimmerman sought donations from his website? You know, the one that looked like it was designed in the mid-’90s, and that proudly featured a photo from a vandalized black community center? Turns out Zimmerman raised $200,000.
Zimmerman’s lawyer Mark O’Mara appeared on Anderson Cooper 360, where he said that he just learned about the money on Wednesday and will inform a judge Friday. Zimmerman has shut his site down — he’s been barred from engaging in any social media — but O’Mara said he will start a new defense fund for his client.
O’Mara admitted that if the judge had known about the $200,000 Zimmerman raised, Zimmerman’s bail might have been set higher than $150,000. The defendant, who faces second-degree murder charges for shooting Trayvon Martin, was released from jail earlier this week after paying 10 percent of the bail.
Want to see Rick Santorum catch himself halfway through calling Obama the n-word? Start at 34:26 and watch Mr. “I don’t need a teleprompter, I say what’s in my heart” call Obama a “the anti-war, government nig, uh…” -Jess
The fact that Newt could turn a President’s heartfelt remarks regarding Trayvon Martin into a race-baiting GOP dog whistle is testament to how vile and subhuman the disgraced former Speaker, and ‘big thinker’ for the Republicans, is on any given subject.
I actually saw social justice~~* bloggers do the same thing
both fucked up
but it’s going to hilarious for me when I see the same 13-15 year olds get mad at Gingrich for saying the same thing they said
Because after homophobia was so successful for Rick Perry, Pete Hoekstra, Republican running for Michigan’s US Senator is trying an oldie but a goodie: RACISM.
