A term for a Black person which people of all races still take great offence to. It is often used by black people instead of words like "homie" or "home dawg" in ebonics.

While it was used as an offensivve and derogatory term, it actually origins from the spanish/portugese: "Negro", which in turn gets its routes from the LATIN: NIGER, meaning black.

DO NOT USE THIS TERM IN PUBLIC. You will probably be arrested for racial offences, or have your head kicked in.
Black man to Black man:

"Sup Nigga?"

"sup ma Homie? how've you been?"

White Man to Black man:

"Sup nigga?"

*SMACK*

Either black/white close friends:
"Hey nigga!"
"ahhh...my white cracka"

Some of yall was on the right track.In fact most black people would still find it offensive if used in the wrong pretence,but its generally used to define a fellow human. 2Pac did define it the best, Never Ignorant Getting Goals Accomplished, not to be confused with NiggeR, What honkey cracker mutha fuckers used to call thier slaves. Newsflash:this is 2006- people all around the world is dying over stupid shit like word like this, who give a fuck about colour or race we as humans need to unite against the real threats like police, corporations bush and imperialism!

The one word that is simply impossible to define because it means different things to different people. It is used by many black people without insult or even with endearment but is still offensive when used in the wrong way or by the wrong person.

1.) Nigga means friend, homie, etc.
It does not mean black person.
I hate how ignorant black people think that no one can say it but them. Any race or person can say nigga if they mean it in a nice friendly way.
2.)Nigger does not mean black. It means ignorant.Basically, stupid.
3.)Ignorant means "not knowing". Everyone is ignorant when it comes to something.
4.)I don't advise you to use it as a racist term.
**Personally nor "nigga" nor "nigger" should be used at all.
1.)"Yo, nigga. What's up?"
2.)"You nigger, Your so dumb."
3.)"Your ignorant when it comes to math."
4.)"You fucking nigger, You need to go back to picking cotton."
*Never use nigger or nigga because there 2 stupid words, for any age group.

A word which in modern usage frequently refers to one who is biologically male. Can be used interchangeably with "dude."

Due to its etymological origins being the racial slur "nigger," certain limitations apply concerning its usage by Caucasians, but these largely vary based on setting.
