what these “cracker” photo posts made me think of
is that white people don’t get offended by the word ‘cracker’ because it hurts them,
by recalling hundreds of years of oppression, murder, genocide, rape, broken families, lost opportunities…
they get offended because POC are not allowed to speak “that way” to them.
they can’t believe you, a Black person or a POC, even opened your mouth to say something like that.
we know we use it because it’s, in all honesty, hilarious to watch them writhe in faux-pain over a word that isn’t even a racial slur.
we know the word doesn’t trigger them, make them feel useless, worthless… but it’s funny because they pitch such a fit for no reason.
so, keep making those “cracker” photos, until they realize, just maybe, how truly offensive their photos with the random use of the n-word on them are, and we’re only making ours to make fun of them.
