Skinner, you've said over and over, "just civil and you won't get a reply hidden".

Well that's just fucking dandy.

What about all the shit bigoted replies that DON'T get removed.

You're allowing little gangs of anonymous jurors to intimidate other members on the one hand, and leave horrible comments visible on the other.

Please fix DU, it's broke.

As you know this is a money making site just like they hope DI will be. I guess I can't blame them for spending their time on their personal lives instead of their privately owned political jabber sites. Mean while good members get run off or hidden into oblivion. If they really cared about the members they'd make sure good contributing members stay here because those members are what makes DU worth coming to.

New DU:

Nothing Will Change Despite Demonstrations. Police Too Infiltrated By Crackers. Leadership Is Worst

Do not feel anything will change. Too many crackers in our society who are indifferent. And the GOP fostered racism which is totally out in the open now works. The GOP and conservatives won election based on meme that government protects minorities at the expense of crackers.

35. "Cracker" isn't a racial slur. It is an historical charactization, now a metaphor.

 

Do you even know the origin of the term?

It is how slaves referred to some of the "masters". It referrs to the literal cracking of the whip as the slaves were beaten.

In the context of that post in question, it is metaphorical as the "crack" is from the service revolvers, not from whips. But the cops doing that are still crackers nonetheless.

Ironic that the original crackers valued their slaves enough to not kill them. Today's crackers are worse than the originals. The originals at least had a profit motive for cracking the whip. Today's crackers are just pure evil.

40. Yes I know the full etymology of the term and I know that Burt Reynolds used it in a movie.

 

I don't care.

The people who toss around the b word don't know the canine reference and people who toss around the n word don't know it's full history either.

It's used today as bludgeon against a group of people and is thus a broadbrushing and divisive term.

Ask some of the folks who use it regularly if they know about the service revolver angle.

4. DU has an odd relationship with epithets. It took years for 'Uncle Tom'

to finally become more or less outlawed.

And when George Allen used the term 'macaca,' DU erupted in outrage, yet to this
day whenever Allen's name comes up, her's called 'Macaca Man' or something
involving 'macaca.' Now, if that word is so racist and offensive, people wouldn't
so gleefully use it.

14. I agree with the OP

 

It should have been hidden for sure. It really ended up discussion the word on that thread instead of the really important message the OP was saying which is there are too many Caucasians on the police force and especially the leadership. And not just Caucasians but the ones that are corrupt. So much for that discussion. It was all about a word that some find unnecessary. MANY other words could have been used and the discussion would have been enlightening and interesting with maybe a solution or two instead the OP was lazy and it is a wasted thread. Lost opportunity.

16. The manner in which the word was used was pretty bad.

 

I agree on that. It is clear that racist tensions have turned some to hate on a broad spectrum. Talking in absolutes based in ignorance. Don't let that run you out the door. Take time to look at why individuals are becoming that which they hate. While their hate is showing and it is based in ignorance, they have come to that place based on real events. They feel helpless and are lashing out. It really is understandable. People often act reactionary when they feel helpless. It helps them to make it through their day. Be compassionate toward their hate. That hate, while counterproductive and foolish in itself, has developed out of a hate they have witnessed and feel they cannot change.

It has been mentioned that this thread will be locked. I hope not. A real discussion can come out of this.

I don't take it as a slur but as a description of master cracking whip over the slaves and underlings and can be applied to what some of these terrible and racist police are doing.

But a lot of people Do take offense so that for reason it should not be used. It is not up to me to decide whether a word shouldn't be hurtful to others.

23. There is no comparison between "cracker" and n****

It's embarrassing to see people equate them. There is just no comparison at all. You can choose to be offended by someone using that word, but that word isn't part of a system of oppression that causes death, unemployment, incarceration, and that has a history in kidnapping people, transporting them under inhuman conditions, and then selling them as chattel.

http://everydayfeminism.com/2013/08/racist-against-white-people/

But, of course, there’s a little thing called context.

There’s that whole 600 year time period where Black people were sold as chattel by Europeans who reinforced their system through violence and repression and who recreated their same systems of domination through Jim Crow and the Prison Industrial Complex when slavery was made illegal.

And there’s that inconvenient fact that the “n-word” was created solely by White people as a pejorative for Black slaves.

And there’s that other inconvenient fact that the word “cracker” literally refers to White power and supremacy in its reference to the overseer who cracked the whip.

The history of my demographics in this country and its social environment makes any pretense of offense I choose to take a difficult contortion of ethics. I am neither oppressed by the word, nor does it weaken in any way how my collective demographic is perceived.



As an aside, it's a wonderful trick how we as people can state that insult A is unacceptable because the recipient has no control over that which is being insulted, while yet insult B, placed against our beliefs, our faiths and our customs is rationalized as well-deserved. Indeed, quite the difference lacking any firm distinction.

Otherwise, the term Cracker means nothing ...

the person saying the word is of low intelligence, limited education or poor upbringing. At the end of the day it's not really their fault they use the word, like all racists they are a product of their environment and do not believe the word is a problem. Similar to when a racist uses the n-word then follows it with, "I am not a racist that's what they call each other".

61. Locking.


Threads complaining about Democratic Underground or its members; threads complaining about jury decisions, locked threads, suspensions, bannings, or the like; and threads intended to disrupt or negatively influence the normal workings of Democratic Underground and its community moderating system are not permitted.

ps. I hope you stick around.
