"Cracker"

I'm offended. Please refer to me by my preferred pronoun, "Saltine-American."

Ha. Good joke. Cracker is one of my favorites, TBH. It really shows how word usages change without most people knowing.

Cracker is an outdated term for "Poor White Trash". It used to be a term that Upper Class Americans used to deride Lower Class folks. It was meant for renters and sharecroppers and the like. Now it just means "Dumb White Person".

Isn't language fun?

Anyone downvoating this should realize it's completely accurate. In leftist groups you're not allowed to talk about how black people are racist towards asians and white people. Or how asians are racist in a way that puts everyone else to shame.

But you just contradicted OP, by saying that some group is "racist", which OP states is only for white people.

Instead of "being racist", say "uses racial stereotypes", which is really what everyone does.

I think he made a perfect illustration of the difference between the dictionary definition and common usage. According to the dictionary definition, those behaviors ARE racist. But no one would ever call them racist, because the perpetrators aren't White.

Great point @HST

In intelligent leftist discussions you can talk about exactly that. Minorities can absolutely harbor racist ideas, against their own group subconsciously, or against others. Racism in japan is a rampant issue because of how rare certain ethnicities are there.

Never met a leftist who wasn't driven by emotion and ideology.

For example, explain why China is an economic superpower now relative to the Maoist China years?

Racism is a word used when people worry about whites doing things that put their own people first.

We actually have a very good reason for doing so. Doesn't it seem logical to be skeptical that adding millions of Mexicans might not be a good idea? The only arguments for it are emotional. They won't let us discuss it amongst ourselves. If we start the conversation, its RACIST

Exactly. "Racist" is a term for shaming White People into subverting our own natural survival instincts. Its propaganda. Its an evil meme, and the cornerstone of the efforts towards White Genocide.

IMO, this is one of the most important red pills we can give out.

Fascism is a form of government which is a type of one-party dictatorship. Fascists are against democracy. They work for a totalitarian one-party state. ... Such a state is led by a strong leader—such as a dictator and a martial government..

So tell me again how it's different from communism?

Racist & Racism was invented by Leon Trotsky, a Jew. They gave it a non-racial specific definition to make it sound Politically Correct to be acceptable taught to White People to understand but it is a term used only to slander White People, and was never meant to be intended to be used on any other racial group.

[–] BigFatDaddy [S] 1 points 5 points (+6|-1) ago 

Close. "Racialism" is a term first attributed to Capt. Richard H. Pratt in the late 19th Century. But, yes, it was the jew Trotsky who later popularized the tern "Racism" as a propaganda tool against White People.

Nope, not true.

There is an urban legend that has been floating around for some years now that the word racist was coined by Leon Trotsky for the purpose of cowing and intimidating opponents of leftist ideology. In History of the Russian Revolution, Trotsky applied the word racist to Slavophiles, who opposed Communism. Did Trotsky really invent that word? No, apparently not. The work in which Trotsky is supposed to have coined that word was written and published in Russian in 1930. I found several examples of the French form, raciste, preceding Trotsky’s use of the word by far. I find pensée raciste (French for “racist thought”) and individualité raciste (“racist individuality”) in the volume of La Terro d’oc: revisto felibrenco e federalisto (a periodical championing the cultural and ethnic identity of people in southern France) for the year 1906. Here the word racist was used without a hint of negativity:

Je forme des voeux pour la réussité de vos projets, car je suis persuadé que, dans cette fédération des peuples de Langue d’Oc luttant pour leurs intérêts et l’émancipation de leur pensée raciste, le prestige de Toulouse trouvera son compte. (p. 101)

TRANSLATION: I express my best wishes for the success of your projects, because I am convinced that, in the federation of the peoples of Langue d’Oc fighting for their interests and the emancipation of their racist thought, the prestige of Toulouse will benefit.

Even earlier examples: in Charles Malato’s Philosophie de l’Anarchie (1897) we find both raciste and racisme. First English usage: a piece for National Public Radio (Gene Demby, The Ugly, Fascinating History of the Word ‘Racism’, January 6, 2014) cites the Oxford English Dictionary to the effect that the first use of the word racism (in English) was by Richard Pratt in 1902, five years after Malato’s use of raciste and racisme in French.

The thing is, Leon Trotsky invented the negative definition of the words "racist" and "racism". The difference is in the intent. Come tomorrow I guarantee you that if the words "racist" and "racism" stopped working in a negative to shame a person, a Jew will find a way to take a new/ different neutral word and turn it into a negative form of the definition.

I'm not an etymologist. I don't know where the word came from. But racism is definitely an idea. Anyone can be racist, and I think it's natural. We are all about ingroup/outgroup thought processes. The groups change as society changes, and our ingroup changes as we age. That said, I'm being told it's my turn to be the nigger from a number of sources, and that ain't happening.

See my other comments about the difference between dictionary definitions and common usages. Or, let me put it this way. If you were camping with a large group of people, would you feel comfortable loudly announcing that you're going to throw a faggot on the fire? The dictionary says it's a bundle of sticks, after all.

Yes, but who uses in that context anyway...It's taboo to say because of the negative connotation that comes along with it. Just because the etymology has changed from the original definition doesn't mean it can't be offensive as the word use has changed.
