Originally intended as a derogatory term referring to the state of being a person of African descent who doesn't acknowledge their African heritage.

The original usage has been supplanted and the term is actually a friendly joust used to describe the state of being a random, anonymous, unrecognizable person of African descent.

It's counterpart for white people is Wigga or Wigger.
