For 250 years -- institutionalized bigotry, prejudice and discrimination has gone only one way in this country: Whites victimizing Black people.
That's reality. There's no such thing as "reverse racism" since we cannot reverse the realities of history.
There is no slur for Whites comparable to the N-word Whites have used for centuries to subjugate, denigrate and dehumanize African Americans.

"Is the term 'cracker' a racist slur?"
Well sure it is, inasmuch as it's meant to put down a person because of their ethnicity.
A better question might be "Does the slur 'cracker' offend you, as a white person?" Chances are that most would honestly say no, which I'd put up for discussion the cause being they're generally not in the position of being a minority, and lack that historically-grounded consciousness of institutionalised subjugation. So comparatively, it's less pointed an expression than other racial slurs might be.

Whites have been the victims of racism and discrimination since the birth of this nation.

ex. "I can't believe Obama didn't birdie that hole."
This would be considered racist as the Democrat thought he did pretty well on that hole.
Current definition: Racist (race-ist) Any white person that says anything (positive or negative)about anyone of a different color that is not agreed with by any minority or Democrat.

Um. Wow. This really happened. Hey MDN, why don't you throw out a few others and check the pulse of your "readership"? Lets start with slurs for Native Americans, and if you still have an operational website you can move on to Asians, then African Americans, and since you clearly believe in guns, "god", and Toby Keith, give the Middle East a shot. Just the basis of the question itself is so irresponsible
It depends on how the word is used.

Not a clue, leftwing. What exactly is a "cracker". If I was a young girl living in ND, and someone called me a cracker, I would have taken that wrong. Now explain what it means.
