A rare word that has no actual meaning, but instead has only a purpose; that purpose is to degrade and dehumanize black people. It's a creation of white Europeans to describe a black person who has been stripped of their pride, heritage, and history who has been beaten into submission by whites and then forced to settle with whatever whites give them, even if that dictates their own self outlook.
It comes from the Latin word 'Nigre' which is used to describe an inanimate object that is black in color. Later on due to mispronunciation and assimilation into other European language groups, it inspired the dehumanizing word 'Nigger'. Misnomer definitions have come to define it as meaning ignorant, however the actual definition listed in these INCORRECT dictionaries have changed over time, going from "a black person" to "an offensive word to describe a person of color" to "ignorant"; all of these are incorrect.
The word can also be used alongside an adjective in order to offend other races beside blacks.
red-nigger=a Native American
yellow nigger=an Asian
I'm not a nigger and I never will be; I have way to much pride and self worth.
I'm not a nigger and I never will be, because I am not a creation of whites and I will never allow them to strip me of my African heritage.
You wish I was a nigger but I'll never lower myself to such a level.
