Mensagem:  The term 'cracker' doesn't only apply to poor white people. It can apply to ALL white people in America. John Kerry, for isntance, is referred to as a /pointy headed New England cracker/ by redneck southerners. New England crackers are stereotyped as being snobby. I'll tell you later about the origin of the term.
