Originally a term used by whites and other non blacks to break down and belittle any person of color based purely on hate. Black people have taken this originally ugly and hate filled term and turned it into somethin positive. Due to it's origin and the negative aspect of it's use by whites, it is impossible to know if a white person is sayin it with good intentions unless you know that person.

a stupid ass black man calling another stupid ass black man a nigga... it ain't no different than a fuckin white man calling a black man a nigger!!!!
it's stupid cuz you don't hear the white man calling each other honky's or crackers... BLACKS SHOULDN'T CALL EACH OTHER NIGGA.

Mellow White Def:

1) A word used by
ignorant/ unknowledgable blacks who think it's not the same as calling someone a nigger.
1: Low classed whites (Klansmen, Facists, Rednecks) Laugh at them and use this to
justify thier idiotic notions that blacks are animalistic and not people.

2) "Nigga" is a pre-Civil war slur or drawl form of nigger or Negro. At that time it was not
neccessarily a derogotory term but a discriptive one.
"Nigga" is mainly a Southern influenced "Nigger" and it become derogitory among whites after the war. Klans in southern Tennessee
pronounce nigger as nigga.
This is a grammatically correct def thus nigga is also derogitory even for blacks to say.
