Nigga
(1) An ignorant motherfucker. Any one of any race can be an ignorant motherfucker.

(2) How some black people call their friends. Some use it more than others. Just like how some girls call their friends bitches, black people call their friends niggas. There is no harm in this, but it seems a bit hypocrital to be fair. This comes from a black girl.

This version seems to work for a lot of rappers.

However, some bitchmade idiots decided on this unwritten streetrule where no other race than blacks can use this word or else it will be racist. They can call whites crackers, but the other way around will not work for them.

(3) A nigger or nigga can also be the stereotypical black person. The male version is often poor, lives in the hood and talks like an uneducated moron. His hobbies include eating fried chicken, stuffing their faces watermelons, drinking kool aid, inhaling malt liqour and toking weed. He has a gun, lot's of bitches, craves for welfare checks, and recites his favourite ignorant rap lyrics. They live with their mothers and they have no jobs. He is also most likely in a gang.

See nigga moments.

The female version is too skinny or super fat, there is no in between unless she is eighteen or younger. She is a hoodrat with little to nothing on, seventeen children, a lot of baby daddies, she enjoys fighting other sluts and doing the same things her male counterpart does.

See hoochie mama.

(4) A word some white people are scared to use around black people.
(1) He might be asian, but he's ignorant. So I call him nigga.

(2) I love that bitch, she's my nigga!

(2) "Why'd you slap him?"

"Because he kicked the other kid yesterday after he was called a nigga, the other kid wasn't even insulting him. He is too sensitive, he calls his friends nigga too. That's lame, so I slapped him.

(3) A guy tried to hook up with her yesterday, but she didn't want him because he has no job, no money and he still lives with his mother.

(3) "Ayo, knaa'mean I was beefin' nyukka, he be dealin' at my mo'afuckin' corna, knaa'mean. I shot the mo'afucka in his 'ead. That nyukka be dead now. Word."

"Whut?"

(3) Two ratchet ass bitches fought over a guy at the mall. The skinny bitch flew all over the place and I'm pretty sure the fat girl crushed his ribs after she fell on him. The fat girl's boob fell out, it was gross as hell. Who the hell wants a dude with HIV anyway? What niggas.

(3) "Awhellnaw dat hoe be trippin, imma teach dat bitch a lesson, dat bitch be sleepin' with my man! Naw, imma beat that hoe up, thankin she be bad! Tha hoe goin' down taday!"

"I'm pretty sure he just lied to you to cover up that it was in fact your sister who slept with him."

(4) "He is afraid to say nigga around me because I'm black, but I let him know it's okay. I just hope he never says it in front of ignorant dudes, it would be such a shame since he means no harm. Besides, he doesn't mind me calling him white boy."

"He can call me whatever he wants, he stupid fly!"

1. Another double standard is society.
Black-Black is okay as long as they are friends because then it can substitute for homie, dawg, bro etc. If mad, then it once again becomes unacceptable. However, no other race, ESPECIALLY caucasians, can use it without fear of it being taken offensively. Occasionally though, if the black likes another non-black person enough, then it can become acceptable. (Although they could both get in trouble if other blacks hear it)

2. Derived from the derogative term "nigger", usually connected as a condescending name from a white to a black person.

3. Also considered different from it's root word "nigger". This has been best defined from rap celebrity/legend Tupak Amaru Shakur who stated "Nigger - a black man with a slavery chain around his neck; Nigga - a black man with a gold chain on his neck."
Black-Black
Black friend#1 "What up nigga?"
Black friend#2 "Hey homie, what's crackin"

Black enemy#1 "Hey Nigga"
Black enemy#2 "I ain't yo nigga bitch"
(Most likely, fight ensues)

Black-Other race
White friend#1 "What up nigga"
Black friend#2 "Hey bro"
(probable scenario if other blacks around)
To White guy "Who the fuck you think you callin a nigga?"
To Black guy "How the hell you gonna let a WHITE GUY call you a nigga like you his slave or somethin?"

- noun (.n)
A word derived from the derogatory term "Nigger." Unlike the term Nigger, Nigga doesn't necessarily have the same meaning, and CAN be used by people of all races.

Differences between the two:

1) Nigger
(a) An Offensive term used to describe a person of any race or origin regarded as inferior. Especially used by lighter skinned people towards darker skinned people.
(b) Sometimes used to describe someone who lacks intelligence.

2) Nigga
Slang term that can be used to describe anyone close to you; no matter what race you are. Can be used to describe a friend, girlfriend, boyfriend or an enemy. Like the word Fuck, when used in different contexts, it can have a different meaning.

Advisory Warning: As long as the person whom you are speaking with understands where you are coming from, using the term "Nigga" instead of homie or friend is acceptable. Always chose your words wisely when speaking with strangers.
Examples:

1) Nigger
"Billybob look! That stupid Nigger just bought a ticket to the rodeo that's scheduled this saturday"

2) Nigga
- When describing a friend:
(a) "Nick is my nigga, even though he's not black. Me and him go way back"
-When describing a love interest
(b) "Your body is bangin' baby, l love the way you flaunt it, time to give it to daddy, nigga now tell me how you want it."
- When describing an enemy:
(c) "That bitch ass nigga just jacked my dime piece and gold chain."

To the people that think it's okay to say it but not for others to say it: don't be a hypocrite, if it bad for others to say it then it bad for you to say it as well, period. Nobody loves double standards, nobody.

To the people that think they should be able to use it because others are using it and get upset because it's alright for others to use it but not you:
The term was used in the past in a rasict context and people have a good sense of history so don't use it, even if you hear other people use it in a nonracial context and assume that sense you mean it that way it will be accepted that way.
1. I will take a principled stand to not say the word nigga or else I wil be seen as a hypocrite.

2. I will take a principled stand to not say the word nigga because I will be seen as rasict when I am not.

3 Hypocrite:whatsup my nigga
Seemingly Racist person: nothing much my nigga
Hypocrite: You can't say that.
Seemingly Racist person: doesn't that make you a hypocrite?
Hypocrite: Why yes it does, but when you use it you sound like a racist.
Seemingly Racist person: Well I guess we're both misguided in using it, we shouldn't assume that everyone understands what we mean.
Hypocrite: I agree, and I think everyone needs to lighten up. No one is really bad unless they feel they as though they can be a hypocrite and that's not bad, or they feel that they can use rasict terms and not expect someone to get mad at them.

Nigga is a word which evolved from the derogative term "nigger" used by slave master to make mock of mental ability of black slave. Moreover, Tupac defined the distinction between the two with some elements of dishounesty - He said:
"NIGGER- a black man with a slavery chain around his neck. NIGGA- a black man with a gold chain on his neck."

The TRUTH, not the FACT, of the matter is that:
-'Nigger'is a black man with iron chain around his neck deprived of any means of education; symbolising 'physical' slavery.
-'Nigga' is a black man with 'million-dollars' gold chains on his neck living in street; symbolising mental slavery.
Louis X: Salaam brother!
Wallace X: Walaikum Salaam Brother.
Pimp C: Yo, Wazap ma niggaz!
Louis X: My dear brother, Pimp C, can I say a word?
Pimp C: Oh yeh!
Louis X: Thanks.
Louis X: Truely speaking, it is not in the the best interest of Black race in our effort to heal the injury that hundred years of slavery has inflicted in our conscience and sub-conscience to continue to make fun of that comatose that force us to be where we are today.
Wallace X: Teach, Brother!
Louis X: My brother, Pimp C, there is no race in this world that has suffered an inhuman brutality like we the black people of Nothern Hemisphere; Our mind, our culture, our religion, everything that signifies our pride and dignity as humans has been rubbed from us.
Wallace X: Teach!
Louis X: Brother, Pimp C, it makes stupid of us to stand in the midst of the children of whose forefathers enslaved our forefathers, treated them as subhuman, cursed them as "Niggers", meaning that they are mentally incapable, and then we 'uncosciously' call each other "Niggaz". If we were to go by the definition of MTV and other media outlets, when they say a "NIGGA", is a black man with a gold chain on his neck." Then the question is why do we see it as an insult when 'white' kids use it on us? If it is a symbol of pride, why don't we appreciate it rather fron at it. This is hypocracy!!! We got to be reasonable, Brother!
Wallace X: Yeh!
Louis X: Having ourselves in the projects; pimping, hustling, drug dealing, that doesn't mean that we are forever condenmed to live at the peripheral of advancement and civilisation. We have to be men who can face the challenges and reality, and say "NO", enought is enought.
Wallace X: Teach!!!!
Louis X: Certainly, living in projects whiles wearing million-dollars gold chains doesn't make sense.
Wallace X: Right on the spot!
Louis X: My dear brother, Pimp C, Bob Marley once said "Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery; None but ourselves can free our minds". it is also said: "It is not too late to turn, and it is not too late to learn, Wake up man and try" We have to try. We have to regain our dignity and respect. We are not 'Niggaz'. We are a hard core 'Brothers'!
Pimp C: Yo, thus food for thought, men! I like you. You r a real brother. man!
Wallace X: Brothers, I think we can talk now...
