look up any word, like ethered:
 
336.
A word originally used by white settlers upon first seeing africans. Astonished by these strange dark skinned, people, settlers often refered to these people as niggers, because the word nigger meant dead or decaying flesh. As we all know when we die our skin decays and turns dark black or brown. The word nigger was a common term for a dead decaying person back then. When at first seeing blacks, settlers were afraid and disgusted by the apperance of africans and because of this they used the term nigger to express their disgust, implying that africans looked "dead" or decayed. The spelling of this word has changed over time from niger to nigger, settlers even went as far as naming African countries after the orginal spelling of this word counries such as Niger and Nigeria, implying that the people of these contries looked dreadful, dead, or decayed.
and oh how horrible they looked, they looked like they were niggers they did!

2.
A word that everyone else is afraid to define except in utter seriousness, for fear of being branded a rascist, in total ignorance of the colloquial usage of the word, its characterization in popular culture, and the populations of people it is used most by.

a term that is racist, as long as the speaker of it is not black. Forbidden on most all of television and other forms of public entertainment, at times referenced to as the "n-word". However, "cracker", a term racist against whites, is a completely acceptable term used in any context of any national broadcast...hmm...
White man: I would like to know why "cracker" and, ahem, "nigger" are not equally forbidden *white man is put on trial for racist slander*
