It can be simply thought of as a tremendously stupid way of saying nigger People who think that they're clever by saying "nigga" are obviously the opposite. Black kids who call each other this name are idiots, so are white kids, and so is anyone else who says it out of its proper context, period. Self-respecting black people don't go around calling each other "nigga." It's only the dumbass MTV crowd who ignore its malignant roots and think it's something amusing to say; employing it constantly. Bigots shouldn't be so butthurt that it's offensive to say it either because no matter what, it's a rude thing to say. Stop being such morons.
Moron #1: I'm a dumbass black kid and I like saying nigga all the time due to my lack of an extensive vocabulary!

Moron #2: I'm a dumbass non-black wannabe kid and I like saying nigga all the time due to my lack of a vocabulary too!

Moron #3: I'm a whiny bigot and I can't comprehend why I shouldn't be saying nigga! I feel so oppressed!

A word that formed from the derogatorative word "nigger". This word is used among many people to say stuff such as "homie", "bro", "friend", "dawg", etc.. It is mainly used within the African-American culture and MOST (not all, I am African-American and don't get mad about it unless it is being used like "nigger". I even get mad when black's use it. =\) get mad when someone without darker skin uses it, but it is also widely used by many other races and cultures.
Black Person: Whatsup cracka?
White Person: Nothin' my nigga!
Black Person: What the fuck man! You don't be comin around here callin' me a nigga and shit!
Me: Shut the fuck up nigga! I don't get so offended by this shit, and as you can tell.. I'm black!

Get a nigga mug for your brother James.
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.

See also: bitch used as a generalized term for females
That's that nigga.

Niggas plot. Bitches too.

I talk different to niggas than I do to the females.

Nigga is slang for Nigger. Nigger is slang for Negro. Negro is an abreviation of the word Negroid which is the scientific classification for people of black descent. How much more can you hack a words origin into unrecognisable bullshit? I give it twenty more years before people have to start taking classes to understand the ignorant jibberish the average "negroid" spits out.
"That guy has very dark skin. He must be in the Negroid catagory."
"The fuck you just call me Nigga?!"
"No its not Nigga, its Negroid. Its the scientific classifica......Ow! I've been shot!"
