A word many African Americans (including myself) have differing opinions about:

1.A slang word meaning friend or another person.

2.A new version of a degrating term that means an ignorant black person. Used over a hundred years ago by slave owners and still carries a lot of hostility.

Although it is hypocritical for blacks and some hispanics to say it and not let whites do the same, it has always confused me as to why whites want to so badly.
I am sick of seeing sentences that depict stereotypical black people saying nigga and white people getting mad.

Noun. Plural: a group of friends/homies
Replace the current meaning of nigga and racism will die out quicker.
Friend: yo, what you doing tonight?
Me: just kickin it with my niggas

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!

a word used by blacks so they could have something to make a hate crime accusation with and as another racial barrier.
Even after getting their freedom, they felt they needed to have another racial barrier

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!

2. Yo Nigga I heard that honky called dat nigga over there a nigger. Lets go beat that cracker up.
