Variation: niggah or nigga. Likely the first of a growing list of terms used by some to describe a person who is black. Said terms, when spoken to any person--by a non-black person--are considered highly offensive and racist to nearly all black people and most non-black people. For example, in the 1960s black people made it know that they wished to be called "negroes". Shortly thereafter, negroes made it known that they considered this to be highly racists and therefore unacceptable; they wanted instead to be called “colored”. Shortly thereafter, colored people made it known that they considered this to be highly racists and therefore unacceptable; they wanted instead to be called “black”. Shortly thereafter, black people made it known that they considered this to be highly racists and therefore unacceptable; they wanted instead to be called “African-American” or “Afro-American”. Shortly thereafter, African-Americans made it known that they considered this to be highly racists and therefore unacceptable; they wanted instead to revert to being called “black”. However, the plural of the word black (blacks) was considered to be highly racists and was therefore unacceptable. Also, when speaking to a group of black people, it is entirely unacceptable to refer to the entire race of…whatever they wish to be called at that moment…as “your people”. If you happen to be black, it is entirely acceptable to use any of the aforementioned terms, whatever the circumstance. In other words, whether the term is spoken in an attitude of contempt, anger, kindness, endearment, reprimand, levity etc, when spoken by a black person the term is never offensive.
Black Person to White Person: Shutch yo mowf, white boy. And don't you be callin' my nigger here none of your racist cracker-ass terms (100% politically acceptable)

Black Person to Black Person: Aw nigroe please! You is one stupit niggah! (Also 100% politically acceptable)
