THE TERM “CRACKER,” USED TO REFER TO A WHITE PERSON, IS OFTEN CLAIMED TO BE A REFERENCE TO SLAVE OVERSEERS CRACKING A WHIP WHILE BEATING THEIR SLAVES.
HOWEVER, IN REALITY, THERE IS LITTLE-TO-NO CONCRETE EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THIS THEORY.
THE WORD “CRACKER” IN THE SENSE OF A WHITE PERSON, CAN BE DATED AT LEAST BACK TO THE MID-18TH CENTURY, WHERE IT WAS USED BY ENGLISH NOBILITY TO REFER TO POOR SCOTTISH-AMERICAN AND IRISH-AMERICAN FARMERS.
THE REASON WHY THE WORD “CRACKER” WAS APPLIED TO THESE PEOPLE WAS THAT THEY WERE VIEWED AS “GREAT BOASTERS,” AND THE WORD WAS USED IN THE SENSE OF “WISECRACKERS” CALLING SOMEONE A CRACKER WAS ESSENTIALLY LIKE SAYING “WHO’S THIS CLOWN?” THE “WHIP-CRACKER” CONNOTATION WAS A FALSE ETYMOLOGY APPLIED LATER RETROACTIVELY.
THE WORD “CRACKER” IN REFERENCE TO SOMEONE WHO CRACKS A WHIP HAS BEEN USED TO DESCRIBE “CRACKER COWBOYS” WHO USED WHIPS TO HERD CATTLE, BUT WHEN THIS CONNOTATION IS APPLIED TO THE WORD “CRACKER” IN REFERENCE TO WHITE PEOPLE, IT IS A PUN, NOT THE TRUE ETYMOLOGY OF THE WORD.
Fanfiction for Sherlock and Elementary are like a weird meta next generation because Sherlock and Elementary are already fanfiction themselves. It’s like… grandfiction.
WHEN “STAR TREK” WAS BEING INITIALLY DEVELOPED, NBC PRESSURED THE PRODUCTION TEAM TO DROP THE CHARACTER OF SPOCK FROM THE CAST.
THE REASON THEY GAVE WAS THAT THE CHARACTER LOOKED “SATANIC” AND THAT “THE GUY WITH THE EARS WOULD SCARE THE SHIT OUT OF EVERY KID IN AMERICA”
