Ok, here’s a lesson on the term. (I used the wording “the term” to keep from being filtered). Anyway, the term was high-jacked by a subgroup of people who wanted to denigrate another group of people only in recent years. However, the term is not racist!!!! Native Floridians have been called that for a 100 years because Florida used to be basically an empty state with woods and orange groves. We used to have herds of cattle that the Florida Cowboys herded every where within the state because there were no fence laws until the late 1940′s. (no I’m not that old). It was like the Bundy Ranch. You could hear the sounds of whips snapping, echoing throughout all of Florida. However, it is true that most all of the pioneers (my family included) were of European descent, especially Russian. Therefore, since the term seemed to apply only to white people, a sub-group stole the state moniker to denigrate white people. But, anyone, if they are a native Floridian, can use the moniker. But, when you refer to the term as a racist term, you give credence to the misused terminology. To native Floridians, this term is one of endearment that we are proud to be called. Don’t believe me? Look up the history of Florida by Gary Mormino. Or, go to the Tampa Tribune to the History and Heritage page. You can see that the term is the state’s moniker…….don’t give the sub-group’s redefinition of it any credence! That’s why this site, or any other, shouldn’t filter this term out.

Blame the media…they’re the ones that keep asking the question or bringing it “up.”
Personally, I do blame the media. Well, and Marco for peeking.

I’m a landlord, and they certainly could have done way worse damage!!!! But, who would give their tenants free reign with the lease…….only deal in hard copies.

OH, and by the way…..Cracker is NOT a racist term!!!! Read up on Florida history via Tampa Tribune. Florida used to be like the Bundy ranch with free-roaming catttle. And, Florida was basically an empty wilderness before Mr. Ears came here. So, you could hear the cracking of the Florida Cowboys’ whips over the herds of cattle all over the state. Thus, native Floridians became known as Florida Crackers, which to us is a term of endearment! But, later a certain subgroup high-jacked the name to use as a racist term because the original settlers of Florida were European and mostly Russian. So, the ones who stole our term of endearment should be “tarred and feathered!” (oops)
@Conkuur….Hey I think you finally explained it to me as to why THEY can NEVER walk on a sidewalk!!!! Cause that always bugs the “tar” out of me!!! Thanks! :)

I was born in Homestead, lived there until I was 2 on Homestead AFB when Hurricane Donna came through south Florida. Even though I was young, I can remember the roof shaking. After Hurricane Andrew hit Homestead, we drove down months later to look and it looked like a war zone. My brother in law who lived in Okeechobee, being truck driver, was called down to help. He reported to us what you didn’t hear in the news about how all the “unidentified migrant workers” were hauled away in trucks.

Seriously, people, pray for me. I had “some” move right next door to me. There’s one of them thar “masks” just down the street, as well. And, the little town right right next to the river has almost been taken over. There are squiggly written signs in front of plazas popping up all over the place. And, a “don’t-care” office next to the river.

@Andreallbadeggs! Native Floridians have been called “Crackers” for over a hundred years, which we LOVE……it is a term of endearment. It started from the Florida Cowboys who herded cattle all across the state of Florida until the mid 1940′s. It was like the Bundy Ranch because there were no fence laws. Florida was almost desolate (until “Mr Ears” came here) and you could hear the cracking of the whips echoing throughout the woods. The term Cracker was later high jacked to use for a certain demograph by those of another demograph. But, a true Cracker is native born in Florida! It’s true, though, that some could be deemed “crazy.” :)
(Noticed the word Weedeater). My uncle is the one who named it that in his wholesale/retail lawnmower business, and registered the name Weedeater, until Sears bought the name from him! :)

That’s exactly what I do. When I get a survey from the DNC I tell them a thing or two and that I’m against everything that they are for.

Should I draw my money out of the bank? Should I pay off my credit cards? Or would credit card debt just go poof if we crash?” Any advice from financial experts in here?

I was wondering the exact same thing!!!! Her head looks really big, then everything seems to get smaller (except the implants) as you look down. Her arms seem to be stunted, until finally you get to her hands, and they look teeny tiny!…………huh?
