Ohio State Player Cries Racism After Being Called "Cracker" by Florida Player

Oh, those poor, poor white folks, always the victims of racism. Just ask Ohio State linebacker Tyler Moeller. He's busy whining about being called a "cracker" by University of Florida players during the Gator Bowl.

"They're classless. That's the way I'd put it," Moeller told the Buckeye Sports Bulletin, according to Yahoo! Sports. "I've never seen more people swing at our players and call us racial slurs. I've never been called a 'cracker' more in my life than I have today. So I don't really have much respect for them in terms of that, but they're a good team. They came out and outplayed us today."

Buckeye Sports Bulletin writer Marcus Hartman later tweeted that Moeller's teammate, and a Miami native, Travis Howard reminded him that "trash talking is definitely a Florida thing (as in the state, not the team)."

While some folks consider the word cracker pejorative, it doesn't quite have as much sting in Florida as it might elsewhere. After all, this is the state where Lawton Chiles, the last Democrat to serve as governor, regularly and proudly referred to himself as a cracker and was remembered fondly as such.

Kyle, you say that "being called a "cracker" in Florida doesn't have quite as much sting as anywhere else"...? Why's that...? Where are you from...? When I was in junior high school in Tallahassee in 1970, being called a "cracker" by a black kid was just the same as a white kid calling him a "nigger!" A fight would usually break out after the name exchange...There's no such thing as "reverse racism," as some people call it, when a black person says something to a white person. It's just racism. Do you think whites aren't discriminated against...? Think again, this is Miami, it happens every day of the week here. When latins call white folks "gringos," that's almost like the white folks calling them "spics" or "wet back."Political correctness has ruined our country, along with the liberal left. At least we all know where you stand. Racism comes in all colors...

A Florida governor from 15 years ago that none of the players remember liked being called a cracker, so that means it's okay to call Moeller one?  Seriously the white guilt of the guy who wrote this is at the level of a mental illness.

Wow, your casual dismissal of Moeller's complaint is disturbing.

cracker is a derogatory term for whites. In miami where the whites are a minority, this is just as bad as calling a black a nigger. Ain't no difference, Spic, Kike, Nigger, Coon, Cracker. They're all racial slurs and you can't deny that, Kyle you stupid fuck.

It's too bad Moeller couldn't have responded with "nigger." But if he did, he would have been ejected from the game, thrown off the team, and probably expelled from school. Not to mention assaulted by numerous Florida "student athletes."

And Kyle here would have gotten his panties in a bunch and whined that Moeller is racist.

But those poor, poor black players (who are going to school free of charge thanks to crackers) get a free pass. Right, Kyle?

maker, youre a worthless piece of shit. those "poor black players" are going to get a free education because of their hard work and dedication. clearly, youre a stuck up white guy who has no appreciation for the GREAT opportunities that the NCAA gives student athletes that have just about nothing. stop whining about the black guys and realize that you need to get your head out of your ass and wake up

Really, Davey? It's coming from an upper class jewish white kid? Wow. That really adds credibility to your stupidity. But, still, not a single cross word for the racist Florida football players? Players, by the way, who, if they do graduate, will have worthless degrees. You--as an upper class jewish white kid--know that's true. Nevermind, just keep worshiping them, Portnoy.
