A word that formed from the derogatorative word "nigger". This word is used among many people to say stuff such as "homie", "bro", "friend", "dawg", etc.. It is mainly used within the African-American culture and MOST (not all, I am African-American and don't get mad about it unless it is being used like "nigger". I even get mad when black's use it. =\) get mad when someone without darker skin uses it, but it is also widely used by many other races and cultures.
Black Person: Whatsup cracka?
White Person: Nothin' my nigga!
Black Person: What the fuck man! You don't be comin around here callin' me a nigga and shit!
Me: Shut the fuck up nigga! I don't get so offended by this shit, and as you can tell.. I'm black!

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).
