Hey, Rachel: I’m Pretty Certain “Creepy Ass Cracker” is a Racial Slur
Townhall.com ^ | June 30, 2013 | Doug Giles

After Tuesday’s testimony in the George Zimmerman trial by star witness Rachel Jeantel some of my white devil, honky, gringo, pasty skin, mackerel snatchin’, Caucasian buddies got all up in arms about Rachel Jeantel stating that “creepy ass cracker” is not a racial slur.

First of all, Rachel, and I hate to break it to you, sister -- and I use that word “sister” in the strictest biblical sense of the word -- but “creepy ass cracker” does, historically, denote derision towards the pigmentally challenged of this world.

By pointing this out to you, I do not mean to demean or berate you. It’s just a friendly FYI I’m putting out there for you to consider, for future reference, because it does offend some of my tribe’s more genteel members.

That said, it really doesn’t offend me. Matter of fact, I prefer cheeky ass cracker to creepy ass cracker as the former borrows capital from British slang and merges it with an 18th century Floridian colloquialism, making it at least a quasi-compliment for this 21st century, brutish wordsmith; while the latter denotes a middle-aged white dude who comments way too much on a cute teenage girl’s Facebook page. Or a teenage boy’s Facebook page, for that matter. But I digress …

Another thing that got a lot of my WASPY buddies miffed by your testimony last week was the fact that the media isn’t Paula Dean-ing you for your use of an obvious racial epithet. To that I would suggest just forgiving them if they tweeted you something untoward, as some of my buddies are arriving a little late to the party and it’s just now dawning on them that the media is unsympathetic to their genome’s plight.

Thirdly, I’d watch it calling someone or something “retarded.” A lot of folks, especially those with special needs friends and family members, take umbrage to that phraseology. It’s just a suggestion to consider. Seriously.

Another thing to ponder if you happen to get called to the stand again, is to get your stories straight while you’re giving testimony or it could turn out better for the defense than the prosecution.

And finally, I know you didn’t ask for this type of spotlight to bear down on you but, if I were you, I would really, really dial down on the rude answers and the obtuse facial expressions, as it sure didn’t look great on television, and at the end of the day, we all have to get along.

You know what I find interesting is that nobody mentions the possibility that Trayvon was attempting to rob Zimmerman,. After all beating up a victim is used quite often in robberies.

Exhibit 1a:

I ask myself this: If I was coming back from a store walking home and someone was following me in their car (assuming that driving down a road could be construed as ‘following’ and not looking for an address), would I run or stop and stare at this person then walk around their car while it was stopped then wait for the person (who was by themselves) to exit so I may attempt to beat them to death?

No, he was robbing him. That’s why Zimmerman stated Trayvon walked around his car. He did so to see if he was alone. He saw him as a mark and made the attempt only he failed.

Great article by Giles. Sad that Black Racists and White Guilt Liberals are attacking Paula Deen for her decades old comment.....while justifying the blatant racism of Jeantel and Trayvon Martin.

It is absolute evil

Many years I told someone I worked with and who was black that I liked Aunt Jemima and thought she was cute. You should have heard her. It was like as if I said the worst thing I could ever say. She called me a racist. I saw Aunt Jemima as a loving human being.

Do you remember the case of Tawana Brawley? It was the cases where Rev Al Sharpton made his bones in the ‘civil right movement.’

Even after it was all found to be an undeniable fraud, the race baiters justified it as “it could have been.” The Brawley case was then cast by the same race baiter as symbolic of the oppression of blacks at the hand of white cops, blah blah blah.

The NY prosecutor defamed by Sharpton/Brawley sued them and won several hundred thousand dollar judgments that as far as I know have never been paid. Sharpton, now a TV star and former candidate for the U.S. Senate (and presidencey?) has significantly increased his financial worth since the Brawley case. Brawley herself was finally served papers to garnish her salary to pay damages to that prosecutor for the judgement won so long ago.

Your co-worker likely never knew AJ never existed, as a real human being. AJ was co-opted to sell a mill product and was really a White dude in blackface who performed in minstrel shows.
Some folks see ‘’racism’’ wherever they can concoct it. It gives meaning to their empty and worthless existences. They are defined by it, become it and it warms their twisted hearts.

And in Rachel’s case quite likely appropriate.

Funny thing about “whitey” slurs in that they don’t seem to have much effect on white people.

Ya know, I wouldn't mind someone thinking I'm a creepy-assed cracker. The average thug would keep his distance. Too bad Obama's son, No Limit N-, didn't have the presence of mind to do the same with Zimmerman.

Well down my way (southern Maryland) in certain areas if you call a white person “white trash” you had better be ready to rock and roll or catch a serious beating
