Meme sort of speaks for itself but is this unfair practice by the television station.

Is this just an example of it being Ok for non-whites to use racial slurs?

or

Is this just an example of political correctness gone crazy?

I grew up watching both of these shows, there was never any thought that either program had racist ideologies.

I know, right, CSM! Archie Bunker would have never aired now.

The Jefferson was the first show that you shown an African-American as an successful businessman. Instead of someone living in the projects, or worked as a janitor. The Dukes of Hazzard being cancelled has nothing to do with political correctness but with rating. It was the eighties, there was no political correctness.

The word honkey is not drenched in hundreds of years of blood, and the oppression, rape, and murder of millions of american citizens. I liked both shows.

And some scholars say that Cracker dates back to slave times or even as early as the 1500's

Some may argue that the Stars and Strips are drenched in "hundreds of years of blood, and the oppression, rape and murder" of thousands of people as well.

MSgt Ronald Stacy - After moving to Florida, I was informed (without asking...) that "Cracker" was a term to describe the initial Florida settlers as they cracked their whips on the cattle herded down here (cow punchers). I am then told that the title is bestowed on any third generation person born here. So my daughter Devon and her daughter Charlotte were both born here, but only Charlottes' child will be a "cracker."
