1. Darkest shaded of color
2. Racial/ethnic term: A black is a person with a majority of ancestors that stayed in sub-Saharan African during homo S. Sapian's original exodus from the continent. Blacks are the most genetically diverse race on Earth including some of the world's tallest (watusi) and shortest (pygmies) ethnic groups.
Today Black people live on every continent however they are most commonly found in sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribean, and the Americas. The term black is sometimes applied to the aboriginals of Australia however they are desecended from homo S. Sapian's original out of Africa migration, and thus are only black in a skin color descriptive sense, and not in a racial, genetic, or ethnic sense. Because of America's one drop rule, the term black is also sometimes applied to people with only half-black ancestry such as Halle Barry, and Bob Marley, however these people have a roughly equal mix of black and non-black ancestry, and thus are only black in a socio-political sense, and are more accurately described as multi-racial.

African-Americans. The opposite of nigger.

Example of people who are/were black: Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Mohamed Ali, Barrack Obama, Condi Rice, the black men and women out there who are working, surviving and contributing to society like any other citizen, and the black men who are putting their lives on the line in Iraq

Nigger are a different category. Niggers are African-Americans who are drug dealers, murderers, gang bangers, think they should get special treatment because of what some cowboys did over a century ago, NAACP, Jesse Jackson (he does nothing good for his race. he just runs his mouth), Ray Nagin.
Blacks and niggers are two different people
