A king, used as a title of the soverign of Ethiopia.

The word a sixth grader had to spell in the National Spelling Bee which sounds suspiciously like niggas. The judge repeated the word way too many times, and many niggers were butthurt as a result. The clip showing the word being spelled became a hit on Youtube.
"The negus ruled Ethiopia until the coup of 1974."

Negus is ONLY an Ethiopian word from the Amharic language it has no connotation with the racial slur nigger. So you silly blacks need to stop making up bullshit. The Ethiopian rulers or neguses were not niggers.
