Local youth

Walking down the paseo to the store last night, I went through a group of three teenagers. One asked rather directly "do you have a cellphone?"

Not "may I use your cell phone" or anything of the sort. So I just said "no" (which was true, I had left it at home) and kept walking.

After I passed the group, he loudly said "Cracker". Keep in mind everyone involved in this is white.

After I got a little farther away, he rapidly repeated some phrase about a half dozen times increasing the volume each time. Best description I can make for this was that it sounded like an old time way to call pigs in for food.

There was too much of a generation gap for the insult to actually work - after the first exchange of words nothing they said even made sense to me.
