A term of camaraderie between most black people. It is frequently heard when interacting with black people, as well as in black music and their culture in general.

Often an invitation will be initiated by a black person to someone of another race to use the term, since he cannot stop calling everyone he knows "my nigger", even white people.

Whites, however, may only use the term if they are initiated into the black community and perceived as being "down like that".

If accurately used, it describes low-class black people dumb enough to dress, act and talk like niggers. This includes using the word nigger to describe yourself and those closest to you.
Jamal complained that he was not hired for the job even though he was wearing baggy jeans and a hoodie to the interview. What a nigger...

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*
