A word that must never be used by both blacks and whites. Yet black people constantly call each other that word.
Jim: What up my nigga
Paul: Nothing much Nigga
Scott: us black people should stop calling each other that word, it has evil roots.
Jim: What do you mean, homie?
Scott: What I mean is, you don't see Mexicans calling each other wetbacks or beaners because they think it's a "term of endearment", you don't see gay men saying: "look, there's my faggot over there!"
Paul: Good point

A word that is foolishly used by black people who think it is okay to say it because an "a" is at the end instead of an "e" and a "r." Truly one of the ugliest words in the English dictionary.
Person 1: Sup ma nigga!
Person 2: That's a got damn shame.

a word that has caused racial controversey over the last few decades and up to current times. It came from the derogatory term for African Amercans "nigger" yet it has a completely different definition than said term.

The contemporary meaning of nigga has two distinct definitions. One means friend, brother, etc. and is mostly used in greeting, such as "Yo wassup my nigga", in this case the word nigga is used in a friendly way.

On the other hand, nigga can also be an insult. Statements such as "F*ck you bitch ass nigga" and "That nigga stole my iPod" are used when one is angry, frustrated, etc. So it all depends on the mood: good mood and nigga means friend, bad mood and nigga means enemy.

Though nigga is used most commonly by African Americans, people of other races use the term as well, though SOME African Americans, not all, feel uncomfortable with others, Caucasians in particular, saying it. In today's society, a white guy can only say "wassup nigga" to a black guy if and only if the black guy is perfectly cool with it. Otherwise, verbal fights may occur.

Again, this word isn't to be confused with "nigger" which really means african piece of sh*t. There is absolutely no friendliness in that word. The only ones who say nigger these days are either people making fun of the word (ex: guys like Dave Chappelle) or racists who seriously need to get shot.
racist white guy: wassup nigger?
black guy: *beats up white guy*

cool white guy: wassup nigga?
black guy: nuthin my nigga u know me Im just chillin
(assuming both of them are friends)

The word used by blacks as show of solidarity in hypocrisy. Nigga comes from the word nigger, a term that originated in the old American south and was popularized by racists as a means of degredation. Used with a thick southern accent the word negro comes out sounding like Nigger.

Today blacks continue to defame thier own kind by using the word as a means of social masculine familiarity. Only ignorant and self hating blacks use the term because of a feeling social inadequacy that has been fostered by a parental figure or public racist such as Louis Farrakhan or Jesse Jackson, who continue to claim that even in the year 2009, when a black man is President and an unfair system of affirmative actions (which give prefferencial treatment to blacks in the work force over whites), that blacks are still horribly oppressed. Many blacks allow white people who have earned their respect to use the word nigga. Some however will become enraged if a white person uses the word nigger. This mind numbing double standard is falsely reffered to as reverse descrimmination. Many believe that until blacks eradicate the rampant use of this ugly word in their community they will continue to suffer from a type of self inflicted neo slavery, a slavery of the self.
1.How dare you call me nigger, Nigga!
