The word "Nilla" originates from the delicious Vanilla flavored cookie brand "Nilla wafers". Nilla started as a slang term for the beloved vanilla flavored shortbread but as widespread love for the vanilla flavor grew so did the use of the word Nilla. "Nilla" is now used very diversely but is most commonly used as word of endearment and camaraderie between friends. It should not be confused with the racially charged word "niller" (which is equally as offensive to Caucasians as the word "nigger" is to blacks), nilla has no racial or sexual connotations and can be used freely among any persons. Except Niggers.
Nilla1: "S'up nilla you will never guess what happened today. My mom let me eat a whole box of Nillas for breakfast!"
Nilla2: "Nilla, no way! I didn't know your mom was so nilla."
This word came about for a need to have a racial slur for white people that is as cool as nigger for black people. It does not imply the lameness of honkie or cracker. Instead, a nilla is a white kid, who is both a slave to the freaky ass booty and enjoys chillin with his boys. Note: Nilla's do not act black
What you call white friends and aquantinses, whom are tight as hell with any culture, race. In other words they are not a hater on other people. Non judgmental. Nillas do NOT act black, they are who they are. A cracker is somebody whom is stale salty and judgmental.
Opposed to a black male calling their other black friend or homie; they would say what up nigga. A white person (not necessarily acting black) would call they homies and say hey mynilla! get it?
