Being caucasian myself, I am inherently aware of the terminology
“cracker". How a joke relating to catching crackers with “cheese” was
translated into a racial slur is completely beyond my comprehension. In my
country, we eat cheese with crackers .. So it would be safe to assume the
entirety of my comment was related to molded milk fat and baked grain. ;)
