I'm behind the whole racist slur wagon as well. WHY are we called crackers?
And incidently, is there any slur for Scots? Or is that the slur...?

/mostly kidding on that second one

I have no sympathy for hunters getting hunted. It actually seems fair to me. I just wonder if any of the hunters recanted their ways in their last few seconds, finally knowing how it feels.
"Jeez, that's what I've been doing to people? I belong here!"
I think hunters should be allowed to hunt each other. It has to be more exciting than shooting animals, and it would actually make it into a real sport.


"Jeez, that's what I've been doing to people?" People? No, most hunters don't hunt people. and to equate a deer with a person is just stupid...sorry to offend the PETA sensibilities, but these are still 6 dead humans, and if you think that is ok because they happen to have shot a few deer, then that is just sad.

Most whites really don't get offended by racial slurs because we pretty much run shiat and haven;t been trained by society to be ashamed of our race.

FLMountainMan I admit I'm from big-city Canada (ha ha), but I think the diversity there is -much- higher than here in Michigan. I find it very creepy to see only white and black people, with the occasional Caldean thrown in. Or... That could just be Michigan. I dunno about the rest of the US.

A little off-topic, but does anyone know who the poor idiot holding up the patriotic "get a brain! Morans" sign is? I wonder how he feels about becoming net shorthand for "stupid."

I smell a graduate student thesis for some lucky sociologist.

I disagree with hunting for sport, but those hunters shouldn't have had to die because some dude went berserk.

"Somebody thinks he means the Hmong, a cruel race of killers from the mountains of northern Thailand"


Is there any truth to this? Let's forget the PC bullshiat and let's look at the truth here. I googled the word "Hmong" and the first page was full of websites that had information on how to obtain U.S. citizenship. Scary because it seems their own native countries don't even want them. Should we be all gung-ho about diversity even if it ends up killing us? Hmmm...

Hmongs known as expert hunters eh? The only person I've ever known to drop 4 pieces of white trash brandishing rifles dead in their tracks by himself would definitely be an expert hunter in my book. Look on the bright side of this incident. At least 4 bucks that would have died that day are now roaming free. Then again, those bucks are probably more useful to society than those white trash will ever be.

Aidan, White People are called Crackers because in the earlier years of America when slavery was in full swing, white people were the owners of blacks, whom if did something wrong -- a whip would be CRACKED on their backs. Thusly, white people are called Crackers because they would use a whip on slaves.

Obviously you've never been to Canada, or you wouldn't make such a retarded, ignorant statement as this:

It's hilarious for countries like Switzerland, Japan, or Canada to call us racist when they are almost entirely one race. Yes, I know Canada, you've got some natives stuck on reservations, too, but c'mon.

Toronto is one of two cities in THE WORLD with at least 60 different ethnicities represented by a population of at least 10,000 - and that is in the GTA alone. I believe either New York or London is the other one.

Even in my hometown of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (Canada's Omaha)there are too many visible minorities to count. I have been in the white minority plenty of times on the bus - and it's not just Aboriginals. Although my city has the highest percentage of Aboriginals in Canada.

As a matter of fact, part of our national identity is that we refer to our wonderful country as a "cultural mosaic" - a mirror to your "melting pot". We like to think that the many diverse ethnic backgrounds which comprise our populace are what makes us a richer nation, as opposed to the assmilation suggested by the melting pot image.

And we have many ignorant fools such as yourself as well. Think carefully before making such broad generalizations about the second largest nation in the world.

Is it ironic that the most racism I ever saw was in being labeled a racist because I was white?

/4 years in a public high school where whites were an 8% minority, interesting experience.
//mostly it was just being farked with, but quite a few of them honestly seemed to believe it in a real racist way, sickening to think about to this day.

Please please please somebody come up with a racial epithet for us Whities that actually can be said in a demeaning manner.

Call me a honkey or cracker and I find it funny not insulting. Just saying the word honkey makes me smile. Kinda like saying poop. It is just a funny word.

These words are only hurtful if you believe that being one of these races is preferable to the others. Since all the other races seem to think it would be better being white, I guess that means their slang terms for white would somehow be a compliment nomatter how angrily shouted. You can't yell at someone 'what the hell is wrong with you you farking cracker' and expect them to be offended if it is generally accepted that everyone would rather be a cracker. That is like insulting somebody by saying 'I dont like you cause you have a lot of money and a good looking wife'.

BTW If it is sooooo good being white, why do I wish I had some melanin everytime the sun comes out.

I can only be better than you if you believe it to be true.

I managed to get out of there and prompty found an apartment never living on campus ever again. In any case, for those of you picturing a limp wristed skinny guy. That he was not. He was close to 7' and had at least 100 lbs on me easily, plus he was really drunk. So no, for you sickos he didn't violate my corn hole.

Not exaclty elementary my dear watsun.

I've read that the term Cracker came from Ireland:

Grady McWhiney, in "Cracker Culture: Celtic Ways in the Old South," (The University of Alabama Press, 1988) makes a distinction concerning the term CRACKER and tries to reclaim the term that is now used as a slur. He says that "cracker," in Scotch-Irish dialect meant "a person who talked boastingly." Later the term Crackers came to mean a Scotch-Irishmen, a particular group of people. McWhiney says Cracker eventually became a disparaging term and Crackers were equated with "poor whites." He quotes historian Lewis C. Gray, in "History of Agriculture in the Southern United States to 1860," as associating the term Cracker with other slurs: "The distinctive characteristics of poor whites were recognized in the various special appellations by which they were contemptuously known in different parts of the South, such as, 'piney-woods people,' 'dirt-eaters,' 'clay-eaters,' 'tallow-faced gentry,' 'sand-hillers,' and 'crackers.'"

McWhiney asserts that Crackers are a distinctive ethnic group - the Scotch-Irish - and is appalled that, "...in a nation in which slurs based upon race, ethnicity, or religion have become strictly taboo, it is still acceptable to lampoon Crackers as a group..."

And what makes you think humans are so special? Or is it just self-serving since you are a member of that species?

Of course it is. What species are you part of? Why would I side with a deer over the human? But besides, I see no problem with hunting as long as you eat what you kill.

similar bumper sticker....:



with the link to article,

Yes, I would consider it a form of harassment. The KKK can't go around preaching specifically death to blacks, else they'd get arrested. So a public broadcast of this stuff is also just as unnecessary and against the interests of all people involved in the incident.
