a reminder that racism is very context-sensitive. we live in a nation with a great degree of preferential treatment aimed at white people, whose historical subjugation, enslavement of, and discrimination against other races carried on for hundreds of years and to some degree unfortunately lingers today. to say “fuck white people” does not call forth the same immediate history that “fuck black people” necessarily does.

this is also why the word “cracker” is not deemed very offensive. if white people were an oppressed minority (which, if I may remind the author, they are not), then perhaps we would be looking at real discrimination.

as is, the comparison is negligible.
