look up any word, like blumpkin:
 
309.
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.

Nigga is a word which evolved from the derogative term "nigger". Tupac best defined the distinction between the two.

NIGGER- a black man with a slavery chain around his neck.

NIGGA- a black man with a gold chain on his neck.
Tupac defined the word

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).
