Default Definition of "Cracker"

So my friend (from Georgia) was speaking with my teacher the other day in class, in Arabic, and said that he was from Georgia. Our teacher said "Oh, so then you are a cracker"

It was good for a short laugh while we explained to the teacher why he might reconsider his choice of words. Then it occurred to me to look it up tonight...

You are correct. Florida Crackers got that nickname from the sounds that the whips made while tending to cattle and whatnot. I don't take it as a racist comment at all used in the right context. It is more a true Floridian's heritage from a by-gone era.

That's what I've been told, too. So, when you're called a cracker, it's a term of empowerment, not an insult.

Here's another one for you, this time from the Arabic --> English dictionary.

FWIW, the A > E dictionary works on a "root verb" system, so everything in the picture is based on the 3-letter-root هود, to be a jew.

I love this language.
