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.

Some of yall was on the right track.In fact most black people would still find it offensive if used in the wrong pretence,but its generally used to define a fellow human. 2Pac did define it the best, Never Ignorant Getting Goals Accomplished, not to be confused with NiggeR, What honkey cracker mutha fuckers used to call thier slaves. Newsflash:this is 2006- people all around the world is dying over stupid shit like word like this, who give a fuck about colour or race we as humans need to unite against the real threats like police, corporations bush and imperialism!
Black man to white man: "What up nigga?" White man to black man:"Chillin nigga, how we gonna get closer to fuckin up the MAN today?"

1.) Nigga means friend, homie, etc.
It does not mean black person.
I hate how ignorant black people think that no one can say it but them. Any race or person can say nigga if they mean it in a nice friendly way.
2.)Nigger does not mean black. It means ignorant.Basically, stupid.
3.)Ignorant means "not knowing". Everyone is ignorant when it comes to something.
4.)I don't advise you to use it as a racist term.
**Personally nor "nigga" nor "nigger" should be used at all.
1.)"Yo, nigga. What's up?"
2.)"You nigger, Your so dumb."
3.)"Your ignorant when it comes to math."
4.)"You fucking nigger, You need to go back to picking cotton."
*Never use nigger or nigga because there 2 stupid words, for any age group.

term of endearment from one black man to another. sometimes not taken offensively until the "er" is pronounced even if the person is white.
((in this example sally and Ja'mall are best friends. Sally is white))
Sally: Whuttup Nigger?
Ja'mall: Bitch it's nigga. Leave off the "er"
Sally: er!
Ja'mall: No. I don't call you cracker i call you crackaa.

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)
