When someone you don't like or don't want to talk to right now, says hi, walks by, or is in a crowd jumping to see over people's heads just to get you to notice them and all you can do is nod while looking at them.

a nod of the head (either a swift upward jerk of the head, or a slower, downward nod of the head) sometimes exchanged between African-Americans (particularly males, regardless of age), given in acknowledgement of each other's presence and the presumed, shared struggles of being an African-American man. Prevalance of the nod varies greatly from city to city or geographic region.
Non African-American companion upon observing the Nod: "Do you know that guy? Why did you two just do that?"
African-American man: "No, I've never seen him before. I was just giving him a 'Nod of aknowledgement'. We don't all know each other; it's just a form of respect."
