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...

What up nigga, you slangin?
by KingCory May 26, 2006
it's a word that can be used in bad ways and good but most use it in good or neutral they mean no harm by saying. Usally you wont get beat up for saying nigga unless you mean it offensively, or mean. Even though i'm white i only say it when i'm around my boys and which most of them are black or mixed. Other wise it's just slag for brotha or cuz...but best not for white people to say. Because it's a sign of respect.
Black:Wat it do my nigga?
White:Wat it do cuz?

SHOW THE RESPECT AFRICAN AMERICANS DESERVE!

a word used by white people (known as crackas and rednecks) to degrade blacks or sometimes to say my friend or my homie.
ALSO a word used by blacks towards eachother not to degrade but to greet and communicate.

i do feel that white people shouldnt say the word however, black people should try to stop saying that word.

if ur black (like me) and say nigga but dont like wen whites use it, it might be being a hypicrite but SO WHAT!!! we r black and white ppl have no business sayin that word. to us it is not a degrading word BUT watever your race, try not to use it TO AVOID CONFLICT.
----white ppl say nigga as a degrading, disrespectful word

1) white store owner: Get the fuck outta my store, you dumb nigga!!! OR

1a) white guy: your kind isn't welcomed here!
black guy: what kind is that?
white guy: NIGGAS!!!

----blacks use it as a greeting

2) 1st black boy: What's good my nigga??
2nd black boy: Nothin' jus chillin'.

----Some white ppl say nigga tryin to be friendly but they dont kno that its not cool for white ppl to say it

3)
whiteboy: hey, dude, what's up my nigga!!!
black boy: get the fuck outta here,dont come around here sayin that word cuz we'll fuck you up.

HISTORY: Derived from the word Nigger. Was used by whites as a derogatory term with hate, disgust, and pity towards blacks. The word was used so often towards blacks, that it became one of the first english words understood. As they understood that they were niggers. They became using the word mixed with the african dialect to nigga.

TODAY: Nigga is still used in african american culture today.

1. Feelings of Hate are still felt when a white person uses the word.
2. Some African Americans hate the word all together.
3. Used by blacks with hate towards other blacks
4. Used by blacks just to refer to an individual

(Alot of controversy since blacks use the word among themeselves, whites feel the word is ok now)

Numbers Matchup From Above
1. White Person: Yo whats up nigga, whats goin on
(Makes a black man boil inside)
2. (speaks for itself)
3. What the f#$% you doin little nigga
4. Black Person: Yo whats up nigga, whats goin on
(Not as emotionally charged, where the history between black and white was superior to inferior)

A word white people do NOT need to say
