The term "nigloo" was first used in the 1800's to describe a housing unit for African American slaves in the mild winter of the Slave States. It was a comical plantation criticism of the FOB's that have not been accustomed to a cooler North American climate.
Today, the word can be used to describe any subsidised housing compound, or any type of residentia having to do with cold temperatures and AA's.
"Boy Jim, fetch the others from the nigloo, we've got work to do..."
"Man, that nigloo's gettin full, they better be buildin another."
