Being from northern MN, it's all crackers, all the time. And i'm not talking Ritz, i'm talking unsalted saltines. As white as white gets. I've only met 2 black people in all my 35 years. They were nice folks, and could call me cracker any time.

I have always gotten along just fine with Black folks. I like to show them dance moves.

I don't have any problem with blacks, whites, or evil reds. I'm too old. Can't we all just get along?

Yep, wonderful times they were. Warms the cockles of my heart.
