1. Another double standard is society.
Black-Black is okay as long as they are friends because then it can substitute for homie, dawg, bro etc. If mad, then it once again becomes unacceptable. However, no other race, ESPECIALLY caucasians, can use it without fear of it being taken offensively. Occasionally though, if the black likes another non-black person enough, then it can become acceptable. (Although they could both get in trouble if other blacks hear it)

2. Derived from the derogative term "nigger", usually connected as a condescending name from a white to a black person.

3. Also considered different from it's root word "nigger". This has been best defined from rap celebrity/legend Tupak Amaru Shakur who stated "Nigger - a black man with a slavery chain around his neck; Nigga - a black man with a gold chain on his neck."
Black-Black
Black friend#1 "What up nigga?"
Black friend#2 "Hey homie, what's crackin"

Black enemy#1 "Hey Nigga"
Black enemy#2 "I ain't yo nigga bitch"
(Most likely, fight ensues)

Black-Other race
White friend#1 "What up nigga"
Black friend#2 "Hey bro"
(probable scenario if other blacks around)
To White guy "Who the fuck you think you callin a nigga?"
To Black guy "How the hell you gonna let a WHITE GUY call you a nigga like you his slave or somethin?"

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

- noun (.n)
A word derived from the derogatory term "Nigger." Unlike the term Nigger, Nigga doesn't necessarily have the same meaning, and CAN be used by people of all races.

Differences between the two:

1) Nigger
(a) An Offensive term used to describe a person of any race or origin regarded as inferior. Especially used by lighter skinned people towards darker skinned people.
(b) Sometimes used to describe someone who lacks intelligence.

2) Nigga
Slang term that can be used to describe anyone close to you; no matter what race you are. Can be used to describe a friend, girlfriend, boyfriend or an enemy. Like the word Fuck, when used in different contexts, it can have a different meaning.

Advisory Warning: As long as the person whom you are speaking with understands where you are coming from, using the term "Nigga" instead of homie or friend is acceptable. Always chose your words wisely when speaking with strangers.
Examples:

1) Nigger
"Billybob look! That stupid Nigger just bought a ticket to the rodeo that's scheduled this saturday"

2) Nigga
- When describing a friend:
(a) "Nick is my nigga, even though he's not black. Me and him go way back"
-When describing a love interest
(b) "Your body is bangin' baby, l love the way you flaunt it, time to give it to daddy, nigga now tell me how you want it."
- When describing an enemy:
(c) "That bitch ass nigga just jacked my dime piece and gold chain."

--I am white but i am not racist but this is somehing i found out from hanging around with both white and black people.--
Black man:whats up nigga?

White man: nothing much nigga? (sued $25,000 by NAACP)

noun: Never Ignorant Getting Goals Accomplished
"When I say N.I.G.G.A. it is not the N.I.G.G.A. that we're grown to fear, it is not the N.I.G.G.A. to which we say has no meaning, but to me, it means Never Ignorant Getting Goals Accomplished, N.I.G.G.A. (Tupac Shakur)

Nigga is a word which evolved from the derogative term "nigger" used by slave master to make mock of mental ability of black slave. Moreover, Tupac defined the distinction between the two with some elements of dishounesty - He said:
"NIGGER- a black man with a slavery chain around his neck. NIGGA- a black man with a gold chain on his neck."

The TRUTH, not the FACT, of the matter is that:
-'Nigger'is a black man with iron chain around his neck deprived of any means of education; symbolising 'physical' slavery.
-'Nigga' is a black man with 'million-dollars' gold chains on his neck living in street; symbolising mental slavery.
Louis X: Salaam brother!
Wallace X: Walaikum Salaam Brother.
Pimp C: Yo, Wazap ma niggaz!
Louis X: My dear brother, Pimp C, can I say a word?
Pimp C: Oh yeh!
Louis X: Thanks.
Louis X: Truely speaking, it is not in the the best interest of Black race in our effort to heal the injury that hundred years of slavery has inflicted in our conscience and sub-conscience to continue to make fun of that comatose that force us to be where we are today.
Wallace X: Teach, Brother!
Louis X: My brother, Pimp C, there is no race in this world that has suffered an inhuman brutality like we the black people of Nothern Hemisphere; Our mind, our culture, our religion, everything that signifies our pride and dignity as humans has been rubbed from us.
Wallace X: Teach!
Louis X: Brother, Pimp C, it makes stupid of us to stand in the midst of the children of whose forefathers enslaved our forefathers, treated them as subhuman, cursed them as "Niggers", meaning that they are mentally incapable, and then we 'uncosciously' call each other "Niggaz". If we were to go by the definition of MTV and other media outlets, when they say a "NIGGA", is a black man with a gold chain on his neck." Then the question is why do we see it as an insult when 'white' kids use it on us? If it is a symbol of pride, why don't we appreciate it rather fron at it. This is hypocracy!!! We got to be reasonable, Brother!
Wallace X: Yeh!
Louis X: Having ourselves in the projects; pimping, hustling, drug dealing, that doesn't mean that we are forever condenmed to live at the peripheral of advancement and civilisation. We have to be men who can face the challenges and reality, and say "NO", enought is enought.
Wallace X: Teach!!!!
Louis X: Certainly, living in projects whiles wearing million-dollars gold chains doesn't make sense.
Wallace X: Right on the spot!
Louis X: My dear brother, Pimp C, Bob Marley once said "Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery; None but ourselves can free our minds". it is also said: "It is not too late to turn, and it is not too late to learn, Wake up man and try" We have to try. We have to regain our dignity and respect. We are not 'Niggaz'. We are a hard core 'Brothers'!
Pimp C: Yo, thus food for thought, men! I like you. You r a real brother. man!
Wallace X: Brothers, I think we can talk now...
