Nigga is a word which evolved from the derogative term "nigger". Tupac best defined the distinction between the two.

NIGGER- a black man with a slavery chain around his neck.

NIGGA- a black man with a gold chain on his neck.

A word that must never be used by both blacks and whites. Yet black people constantly call each other that word.
Jim: What up my nigga
Paul: Nothing much Nigga
Scott: us black people should stop calling each other that word, it has evil roots.
Jim: What do you mean, homie?
Scott: What I mean is, you don't see Mexicans calling each other wetbacks or beaners because they think it's a "term of endearment", you don't see gay men saying: "look, there's my faggot over there!"
Paul: Good point

A derogatory word used by black people to retain (and exploit) their ancestors past as slaves. Many blacks claim it's a term of endearment (akin to brother, homie, etc), but in no way can it be as its root meaning is ignorance. It's another double standard of racism in our current time.
White guy "what up nigga"
Black guy "nigga?"
White guy "you know what I mean bro"
Black guy "you mean I'm a nigger"
White guy "Nah man, it ain't like that"
Black guy punches the white guy.
Black guy gets arrested for assault and released without charges because the white guy is accused of using racial slurs (that the Black guy uses everyday in his vocabulary with his "brothers" that he has no idea if he's actually related to).

Nigga
(1) An ignorant motherfucker. Any one of any race can be an ignorant motherfucker.

(2) How some black people call their friends. Some use it more than others. Just like how some girls call their friends bitches, black people call their friends niggas. There is no harm in this, but it seems a bit hypocrital to be fair. This comes from a black girl.

This version seems to work for a lot of rappers.

However, some bitchmade idiots decided on this unwritten streetrule where no other race than blacks can use this word or else it will be racist. They can call whites crackers, but the other way around will not work for them.

(3) A nigger or nigga can also be the stereotypical black person. The male version is often poor, lives in the hood and talks like an uneducated moron. His hobbies include eating fried chicken, stuffing their faces watermelons, drinking kool aid, inhaling malt liqour and toking weed. He has a gun, lot's of bitches, craves for welfare checks, and recites his favourite ignorant rap lyrics. They live with their mothers and they have no jobs. He is also most likely in a gang.

See nigga moments.

The female version is too skinny or super fat, there is no in between unless she is eighteen or younger. She is a hoodrat with little to nothing on, seventeen children, a lot of baby daddies, she enjoys fighting other sluts and doing the same things her male counterpart does.

See hoochie mama.

(4) A word some white people are scared to use around black people.
(1) He might be asian, but he's ignorant. So I call him nigga.

(2) I love that bitch, she's my nigga!

(2) "Why'd you slap him?"

"Because he kicked the other kid yesterday after he was called a nigga, the other kid wasn't even insulting him. He is too sensitive, he calls his friends nigga too. That's lame, so I slapped him.

(3) A guy tried to hook up with her yesterday, but she didn't want him because he has no job, no money and he still lives with his mother.

(3) "Ayo, knaa'mean I was beefin' nyukka, he be dealin' at my mo'afuckin' corna, knaa'mean. I shot the mo'afucka in his 'ead. That nyukka be dead now. Word."

"Whut?"

(3) Two ratchet ass bitches fought over a guy at the mall. The skinny bitch flew all over the place and I'm pretty sure the fat girl crushed his ribs after she fell on him. The fat girl's boob fell out, it was gross as hell. Who the hell wants a dude with HIV anyway? What niggas.

(3) "Awhellnaw dat hoe be trippin, imma teach dat bitch a lesson, dat bitch be sleepin' with my man! Naw, imma beat that hoe up, thankin she be bad! Tha hoe goin' down taday!"

"I'm pretty sure he just lied to you to cover up that it was in fact your sister who slept with him."

(4) "He is afraid to say nigga around me because I'm black, but I let him know it's okay. I just hope he never says it in front of ignorant dudes, it would be such a shame since he means no harm. Besides, he doesn't mind me calling him white boy."

"He can call me whatever he wants, he stupid fly!"
