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...

It can be simply thought of as a tremendously stupid way of saying nigger People who think that they're clever by saying "nigga" are obviously the opposite. Black kids who call each other this name are idiots, so are white kids, and so is anyone else who says it out of its proper context, period. Self-respecting black people don't go around calling each other "nigga." It's only the dumbass MTV crowd who ignore its malignant roots and think it's something amusing to say; employing it constantly. Bigots shouldn't be so butthurt that it's offensive to say it either because no matter what, it's a rude thing to say. Stop being such morons.
Moron #1: I'm a dumbass black kid and I like saying nigga all the time due to my lack of an extensive vocabulary!

Moron #2: I'm a dumbass non-black wannabe kid and I like saying nigga all the time due to my lack of a vocabulary too!

Moron #3: I'm a whiny bigot and I can't comprehend why I shouldn't be saying nigga! I feel so oppressed!

A word often used by black gangsta rappers to address each other, or just refer to each other in a brotherly way. And for some reason it's okay for them to use the word and no one else.

If any other race uses the word, especially white people, it's grounds for war, because the definition is supposedly inferred to mean "you are beneath me and meant to serve me."

Of course, it's completely "fine" for the niggas to refer to ANY woman, no matter what the color of her skin, as a bitch or a ho' - which is also used to imply that " you are beneath me, and meant to serve me."

You can't say the 'n' word on the radio or TV, for fear of offending a particular race. But you hear 'bitch' and ho' all the time, regardless of the women it might offend...
gangsta1: Yo, nigga! What's up!

gangsta2: Life is good, my brother! I had the time with one sweet bitch at the club. And my bitch back home? She knows when it's time to put out, You know what I'm sayin'?

gangsta1: Yeah, my nigga! My bitch, she gave me the mouth when I got home, so I put her in her place! Right off. No bitch is gonna tell me when to be home! What a bitch.

white guy: Yo, niggaz!

gangsta1: What the fuck! Who you callin' nigga?!

gangsta2: What the fuck! I'm gonna cut you a smile 'cros your neck. Ear to ear-

white guy: Wait! Hold it! I just wanted to tell you, that was one fine bitch I saw you with last night.

gansta1: All my bitches are fine! They know how to please me.

As defined by the movie Poolhall Junkies, a "nigga" is simply a friend or "homie" as opposed to "nigger" which is a derogatory name for a black person. Nigga can be used by people of all races as long everyone is ok with it.
Johnny (White): So your saying that because me and you are friends, that makes us niggers?

Chico (Black): No, no, no, niggas aight? theres a big difference.

Johnny: That what I just said. I said nigger.

Chico: No, nigga.

Johnny: Nig-ger.

Chico: Nigga. N-I-G-G-A. Nigga.

Johnny: Nigga? What the fuck is that?

Chico: Look man it means like we brothas you know what I'm sayin'? Like if I say you my nigga, that means we boys. You see? Like that man you playin' right there? Thats my nigga Charles.

Johnny: Oh, my nigger Charles?

Chico: No, hold it, hold it. You can't say that. Only I can.

Johnny: Why?

Chico: Because first of all, you dont say it right. And second, you dont know Charles. I do.

Johnny: You do?

Chico: Yeah, I do. I benn knowin' Charles since he was knee-high to a duck.

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!"
