Yeah, I have to say that I agree. This could have been worded much better.

You mean the slur that prosecution "star witness" Rachel Jeanet said that Trayvon used for George Zimmerman?

The video is about double standards re: racism. Did you watch it?

I agree with you that Trayvon Martin shouldn't have called George Zimmerman such a racist name as that.

The video is about double standards re: racism in the Zimmerman trial. Did you watch it?

Creepy ass cracker is a stupid phase, I don't think its racist, its just stupid.   Whoever thinks its up there with the N word is sadly mistaken in my opinion.

I agree, and its not the comments made by a scared teenagers who was trying to sound tough to his friend that I found offensive. The Africa America is very divisive and offensive. I've tried to stay out of the whole Zimmerman parade but again, the title to this post is offensive.

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

The end of the title is offensive and as another poster said devisive, the cracker comment doesnt bother me.

I dont care much for name calling but its never made me shoot someone. Or pursue them. I have never felt the urge to follow anyone. I have interfered in several fights and taken weapons and talked people down. In the process I have been called a few nemes lol.. Name calling doent excuse the attitude GZ took in there with him. Doesn't change the fact he was asked to stay in his vehicle and he was sooo damn worried he was gonna get away. Well he sure didnt get away. To me thats the whole ball of wax. GZ intent on a confrontation he didnt have the ass to follow through on and TM got the upper hand and rather than taking the fight he himself went looking for he shot him.

The pejorative "Cracker" is a derogatory term for poor whites believed to have been derived from "Whip Cracker"

It is nasty, offensive and racist and much like the "N Word" for white people, it is unacceptable for blacks to use this term and also like the "N Word" for whites, there is only one reason for blacks to use "Cracker" and that is for racist reasons.
