Cracker is “Our word” and blacks aren’t allowed to use it.

When discussing ethane cracking, it is racially neutral.

Instead of ethane I usually produce methane for crazy ass crackers.

They can call me anything they want. I know what I am and no words can change it.
I'm not going to go to pieces if anyone calls me a honkey, gringo, cracker, paleface, whitey or whatever.
I'm all of those things and more and I will not be ashamed. You can't break me by calling me names.

All 3 of these locations are within 15 miles of each other.
Shell is just trying to get the best state tax deal possible.

The former NABISCO plant here in Pittsburgh is now a Google branch office.

Yeah, I wish they’d go back to making crackers too.

The plant will be built and called ‘cracker.’ No one cares if Whites are offended.

It’s not really what you prefer to think of yourself as,

it’s what you can demand that others refer to you as.

It’s about power and telling others that their language is offensive and wrong.

Thank you for pointing out the double racism! The limbo is a dance, and they are clearly making fun of white people for not being able to dance!
