look up any word, like bye felicia:
 
11.
To the people that think it's okay to say it but not for others to say it: don't be a hypocrite, if it bad for others to say it then it bad for you to say it as well, period. Nobody loves double standards, nobody.

To the people that think they should be able to use it because others are using it and get upset because it's alright for others to use it but not you:
The term was used in the past in a rasict context and people have a good sense of history so don't use it, even if you hear other people use it in a nonracial context and assume that sense you mean it that way it will be accepted that way.
1. I will take a principled stand to not say the word nigga or else I wil be seen as a hypocrite.

2. I will take a principled stand to not say the word nigga because I will be seen as rasict when I am not.

3 Hypocrite:whatsup my nigga
Seemingly Racist person: nothing much my nigga
Hypocrite: You can't say that.
Seemingly Racist person: doesn't that make you a hypocrite?
Hypocrite: Why yes it does, but when you use it you sound like a racist.
Seemingly Racist person: Well I guess we're both misguided in using it, we shouldn't assume that everyone understands what we mean.
Hypocrite: I agree, and I think everyone needs to lighten up. No one is really bad unless they feel they as though they can be a hypocrite and that's not bad, or they feel that they can use rasict terms and not expect someone to get mad at them.

5.
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).
