WHY IS THERE NO WHITE HISTORY MONTH

EvilHomer - 2014-10-23
BECAUSE EVERY MONTH IS WHITE HISTORY MONTH

and also white people don't need identity politics, because everyone, no matter how "enlightened", implicitly assumes that whites are the baseline against which the rest of humanity must be measured.

Perhaps our black readership can fill me in here, but why drop such a terrific epithet like Honky for such a lame ass archaic one as "cracker"??? Sorry, but there is nothing even vaguely insulting about being compared to a horderve. Add to this the modern alternate meaning of "someone who breaks software encryption" and you're actually complimenting us.

They say the word cracker comes from whip cracker or something like that. I would really like to hear the origin story of the word honky, because it seems like it could be hilarious.

Who is this "they"? I learned the soda cracker version: dumb but at least vaguely insulting. But "whip cracker"?!?!?!?! Why yes, boy, I _am_ a whip cracker. Best mind your manners.

Again, and I think the Black Panthers agree with me on this point, the word is Honky.

The only version I've heard offered with conviction is "whip cracker", but it's possible that's merely a popular misconception (like "faggots were burned at the stake", which is a very popular piece of etymythology where I'm from)

I think Honky comes from prostitution: white dudes would go to the ghettos and instead of getting out of their cars they'd just honk their horns and wait for the prostitute instead of going into the speakeasys and such.

Zest is correct. It wasn't just prostitution, but also if you pulled up to a chick's house and didn't want to deal with her cracker-hating father.

Wikipedia says whip cracker is one possible source. Also, it may just refer to soda crackers, poor people food.

"Honky" might originate from "hunky", as in Hungarian.

My great grandma who was Slovenian used to make "hunky" meals, like "hunky" spaghetti or "hunky" soup. They were basically just low quality versions of the real thing. She used ketchup and butter for the spaghetti sauce.
