A racial slur, used by african-american males and females. Spelled diffrently from its derived word nigger, it has a completely diffrent meaning... Unless your caucasian, asian, cuban, etc. Dispite race, someone should not use this word, if that person is offended when someone else calls them it.
White guy: Yo, dog. Sup?
Black guy: Nigga, please. Stop trippin like you hard.
White guy: Nigga, fuck you!
Black guy: WHAT?!

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)
