I have an account that is not associated with iOTW or BFH.
I was on a thread that was about Jabba the Pizza Hut, you know, the articulate Black English patient that testified at the Trayvon Martin trial, and I was sparring with a few people who agreed with the Jabba that “cracker” wasn’t offensive.
My point, which they didn’t seem to grasp, was that it is not up to her to decide what is offensive, especially when she is using it as an epithet. We know she was using it offensively because in her testimony she admitted to omitting the “cracker” part when she spoke to Trayvon’s mother because she felt uneasy telling her that that’s what Trayvon said. So, obviously, “cracker” is not endearing.
This didn’t matter to these brilliant debaters. They simply kept saying that it wasn’t offensive if she said it wasn’t. So, being the sarcastic person I am, I called them niggers and told them not to worry because I didn’t believe the word to be offensive.
