As mentioned here yesterday, the prosecution's "star" witness in the Zimmerman trial claimed that the term "cracker" has no racial connotations, yet inputting the term into any search engine brings up many notations ascribing precisely that to the word that is "commonly used in her community". And she gets a pass.
Meanwhile a cook by the name of Paula Deen has been raked over the coals for a week in the media for using the term, "nigger". Apparently, there's no double standard at play - or so they'd have us believe. Sorry, folks - it's quite obvious that there is. No amount of protesting to the contrary will make the spin true.
