Hey, MSNBC, Dowd, Maher et al. Is Cracka a ‘Code” word?

From CNN.Com

Armed with a chunk of concrete, several assailants beat Brian Milligan Jr. on the back of the head on August 18, leaving a 3-inch gash. They kicked him in the face, breaking his jaw.

Bloodied and bruised, the 18-year-old managed to walk five blocks to his grandmother’s house before being rushed to the hospital.

Milligan’s father believes several African-Americans beat his son, who is white, because he is dating an African-American woman. He wants police to treat the beating as a hate crime. He also has criticized what he calls a deafening silence from the community, police and the national media.

“If this was a black guy who was beaten by a group of white guys for dating a white girl, people would be up in arms,” he said. “There’s a double standard. [snip]

The younger Milligan and his girlfriend, Nicola Fletcher, who is also 18, had recently complained of an increase in insults and threats in east Buffalo, where Fletcher lives and where Milligan was staying with his grandmother, Fletcher said.

“Every time they walk the streets, people stop him and call him ‘cracker’ and ask her why she’s not with a black guy,” Milligan Sr. said.

Two days before the attack, Fletcher said she was shot with paintball pellets by the same group of neighborhood aggressors.

“I’m afraid to walk the streets,” she said. “Those guys are still out there.”

Socialist is apparently a “code” word to y’all.  Well, how about Cracker? Is that ‘code’?  Disagreeing with our President on policy is Racist because you only see the color of his skin; While we actually just see, and dislike, the policies.

Yet this, an actual racist act, a crime perpetrated against a young man solely based on the color of his skin? Deafening silence.  I’ll give you some credit that you, frankly, don’t deserve:  Perhaps you are finally feeling some shame? Because by reprehensibly falsely accusing everyone of racism and implying that everything has racist undertones, you are in fact fomenting it. If you were in any way intellectually honest, you would have realized that.  For Brian Milligan, it’s too late. For our Country, I hope it’s not… I hope you realize it now.  Remember that whole “Words Matter” thing?

They do.

    Crap like this really steams me. And Mr. Milligan is right.

    Your comments tie a nice “in your face libs” bow on it too.

    This is the first I’ve heard of this. But I shouldn’t be surprised since the MSM doesn’t like to report things that run counter to the narrative.

    It infuriates me as well. It is also a reason I really hate the “racist” label. As it pertains to me, I don’t care; it’s sticks and stones and I know it isn’t true. But, by turning every single little thing into racism, by constantly *only* seeing people’s color, they are actually setting back race relations DECADES.
