honky wanna cracker?

So, further to the earlier post about the terms honky, cracker, etc., over at debunkingwhite--someone linked in that dbw thread this Tim Wise article about why those terms are not as offensive as racial slurs against POC.

Thoughts?

It occurred to me, which has come up in here earlier in our discussion of "cracker," that most slurs against whites as such are actually class-based. And while I liked Wise's article, it felt like he had made the choice to elide any discussion of class within whiteness.
