What Does SALTINE Mean?

A saltine is a thin salty cracker, usually made from white flour. On chat forums and social media (such as TikTok), saltine is often used as a coded and derogatory way to refer to a white person.

This use of saltine is an example of algospeak, the abbreviation, deliberate misspelling, or substitution of words in order to bypass automated content moderation systems.
