witness also claimed TM used the "n" word in reference to GZ. Perhaps that's just part of normal conversation among some people. "Polite" folks will also be set back on their heels when hearing the number of times the "f" word or "m-effer" is randomly interjected into nearly every sentence. One could get the feeling these people use such offensive language so often that it's considered to be normal and that anyone who doesn't speak that way is a bit "off". It's no wonder that people who find such conversation to be crude and offensive want nothing to do with those with whom they cannot have conversation.
As for the word "cracker", you're right that there are various opinions as to where it came from and what it means. I posted some of these, one of which had to do with alcohol consumption. Perhaps a Georgia "cracker" is also one known to "crack" open a bottle...sometimes called "cracking corn" at the end of a long day. It also refers to humor.
