englishmen7 - why is the white person calling another White person a cracker? isn't he also a cracker?

Muhammad Rasheed - "Cracker" is the term elitist legacy wealth whites use for the poor white class.

englishmen7 - oh right, I always thought the term meant for all whites, I honestly thought it was a word used by blacks to call whites because whites kept calling them the N word.

Muhammad Rasheed - No, it's origins come from 16th century England, where the aristocracy called the poor peasants 'crackers' because it meant "braggart" or a "fast talker." The poor whites have a long cultural history of treating slick-talking grafting and theft as a virtue. When they were brought over to North America as indentured servants, the wealthy class continued to call them 'crackers' representing the class of settlers with undesirable dishonest and unruly characteristics. 

MEDIUM: Scanned pen & ink cartoon drawing w/Adobe Photoshop color.
