And I wasn't comparing cracker to the n-word, I was simply commenting on the fact that many racial slurs are in fact normal everyday words (or sound just like them). Hence the silliness towards the word sni ggers.
I've never seen it either. I don't know what kind of hell-hole forums Fox frequents when he isn't here, but that was a new one to me.
It had never even occurred to me before you posted about CAG having a problem with the word that it closely resembled that other word. Though I'm not sure if I had ever seen it spelled out before. So it might have been more obvious if I had seen it in print.
Whatever. It's not a word that I used a lot. I usually only used it to denote something that had made me laugh in a very juvenile way. Which I believe was kinda what you meant.
