Stepping On A Crack Superstition

January 13, 2012 by staff 

Stepping On A Crack SuperstitionStepping On A Crack Superstition, The origin of this superstition may be from a fear that a crack in the ground is an entry point to the grave and the underworld. But a story holds that the children’s rhyme has a racist origin that has been sanitised by history: the claim goes that the original version of the rhyme was ‘step on a crack, your mother is black.’ Sadly this explanation makes about as much sense as any other.
