Coconut used in this context is like 'banana' used to insult people of Asian ethnicity who have become full westernised.

You best believe it is a racist term, as anything used as an insult that refers to the colour of a person's skin, is racist.

I've heard the term coconut used by an Aboriginal to insult another Aboriginal before, much like the African American use of 'Uncle Tom' and 'Toby' as stifler mentioned earlier, is used to ostracise and insult any African American that others feel have risen 'above their station' or sold out to whitey.

The term 'coconut' used to describe Islanders is also racist - it's like calling all Arabs terrorists, or all French people frogs (clickit clickit!! )

Racism
discrimination

2 different words
when race is used it is racism. when non race issues are used Fat, tall, pregnant, a women, a man, disabled Etc then it is discrimination.
when any of these issues are abused it is wrong and all should be looked at the same way discrimination is wrong whether it is race religion or body structure

Agreed Mauler.

I'm curious what that c-r-a-c-k-e-r bullshit that Mundine was carrying on with months ago really means. I do know enough from listening around that it's racists but the actual meaning?

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ])

C-r-a-c-k-e-r, sometimes white c-r-a-c-k-e-r, is a disparaging and racist term for white people. Originally, it was used to describe poor whites. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], mainly used in the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States"]United States[/ame], but in recent decades in usage throughout North America.

Etymology

One theory holds that the term comes from the common diet of poor whites. According to the 1911 edition of the [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Encyclopedia_Britannica"]Encyclopedia Britannica[/ame], it is a term of contempt for the "poor" or "mean whites," particularly of Georgia and Florida. Britannica notes that the term dates back to the [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Revolution"]American Revolution[/ame], and is derived from the [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornmeal"]cracked corn[/ame] which formed their staple food.[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (In [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_English"]British English[/ame] "mean" is also a term for tightfistedness,[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] with no malice implied.)
Another theory is that slaver foremen in the antebellum South used [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullwhip"]bullwhips[/ame] to discipline African slaves, with such use of the whip being described as 'cracking the whip'. In this [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folk_etymology"]folk etymology[/ame] the white foremen who cracked these whips were thus known as 'c-r-a-c-k-e-r-s'. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
An alternate whip-related theory is that the term is linked to early Florida cattle herders ([Only registered and activated users can see links. ]) that traditionally used whips to herd wild Spanish cattle. These cowboys were distinct from the Spanish vaqueros of Florida. The crack of the herders' whips could be heard for great distances when they were used to round cattle in pens and to keep the cows on a given track. Also, "c-r-a-c-k-e-r" has historically been used to refer to those engaged in the low paying job of cracking pecans and other nuts in Georgia and throughout the southeast U.S.
Yet another theory is that the term derives from an [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabethan"]Elizabethan[/ame] word used to describe braggarts. The original root of this is the [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle_English"]Middle English[/ame] word [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] meaning "entertaining conversation" (one may be said to "crack" a joke); this term and the alternate spelling [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craic"]craic[/ame] are still in use in [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ireland"]Ireland[/ame], [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scotland"]Scotland[/ame] and [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_England"]Northern England[/ame]. It is documented in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Life_and_Death_of_King_John"]King John[/ame] (1595): "What c-r-a-c-k-e-r is this same that deafs our ears with this abundance of superfluous breath?"

Interesting:

[ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honky[/ame]

Honky (also spelled ****** or honkie) is a [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racial_slur"]racial slur[/ame] for [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_people"]white people[/ame], predominantly heard in the [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States"]United States[/ame]. The first recorded use of honky dates to 1946[Only registered and activated users can see links. ], but the exact origins of the word are unknown.
Honky may be a variant of hunky, which was a variant of Bohunk, a slur for Bohemian-Hungarian immigrants[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Honky might also derive from the term "honk nopp" which, in the west African language [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolof_language"]Wolof[/ame] means, literally, "red-eared person" or "white person". The term may have originated with Wolof-speaking slaves brought to the U.S.[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Another documented [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory"]theory[/ame] and possible explanation for the origins of the word is that [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_male"]white men[/ame] called "johns" would honk their horns for [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prostitution"]prostitutes[/ame] in [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urban_area"]urban areas[/ame] such as [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harlem"]Harlem[/ame] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] in the early 1900s[Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

Cheers for the c-r-a-c-k-e-r explanation IBM.

Interesting how Mundine was able to use that term like it was his word-of-the-month and not get pulled up for it.

Yet if the people he aimed his comment at referred to him as say c-o-o-n for example, there'd be merry bloody hell to pay!
