The house nigger, as defined by Malcolm X, is the slave who imagines himself to be thought of as kin by his master because they live in the same house.
A modern-day equivalent is a dishwasher who has a chip on his shoulder because he busts suds at a four-star hotel or restaurant.
"What chu talking about?! I aint no field nigger slave! He aint my massa, he's my pal -- we live together see! I am a house nigger!"
"There's a huge difference between a guy who washes dishes at Denny's and a guy who washes dishes at the Ritz. The former is a dirtbag and the latter is a pro."
