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!

Term used amongst African Americans to denote companionship, sort of like mate is used by Brits or cunt by Australians.

The spelling/pronunciation of nigga is intended to be different from the word nigger, which is generally considered to be supremely racist. Presumably the difference arises as a result of the non-rhoticity of African American Vernacular English (AAVE). This is somewhat ironic when one considers that the (white) southern dialect was nearly universally non-rhotic in the time when slavery was still legal, and that non-rhoticity is still present in the speech of many upper class, "old money" southerners, especially amongst the older generations (i.e. descendants of plantation owners).
African Americans like to say nigga because it's different from nigger (which is racist). People whose grandparents owned 100 slaves also might use nigga, but they intend it to be racist. The irony is just too much if you ask me.
