Nigger is a greeting amongst friends as in:
- What's up my nigger?
- 'Sup nigger!
- Nigger please!
(In modern ebonics the -er is replaced with an -a, although the word didn't used to have this.)
Nigger also originally was a friendly name for a person of Subsaharan African descent mainly and occassionaly other races too. It's sort of like "dude" or "guy". So you'd say "'Sup dude?" or "'Sup nigga?" For instance in Mark Twain's books, there was a character named Nigger Jim and he was the most likeable character in all the books. Why would he choose an insult for the name of his most likeable character?
But nigger was a friendly term. Until... Communist Jews wanted to use blacks for their own ends so they do their best to make them feel resentful. "Goyim, you see that word your friend calls you? That's actually an insult!" Communist Jews founded the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) and they demanded that "colored" be the word you had to use to be politically correct.
So it became an insult. Black people today cry and become enraged when they hear it. Thanks Jews! Jews have always been getting black and white people to fight against each other. The latest movement, Black Lives Matter, is run by Communist Jew supervillain George Soros. Jews pretended to help blacks and they destroyed the black family, turned their neighborhoods into crime-filled hellholes, encouraged drug addiction, and told black men they should avoid black women and seek out other races to destroy their societal cohesion.
January 2016, some blacks at Dairy Queen called 911 (emergency number) simply because they were called "nigger". Then Dairy Queen revoked the franchise owner's license and permanently closed Dairy Queen at that location.
Etymology and history
The variants neger and negar derive from the Spanish and Portuguese word negro (black), and from the now-pejorative French nègre (it was not a pejorative at that time, it simply was French for black). Etymologically, negro, noir, nègre, and nigger ultimately derive from nigrum, the stem of the Latin niger (black) which, in every other grammatical case, grammatical gender, and grammatical number besides nominative masculine singular, is nigr-, the r is trilled). (Romance language nouns typically derive from the accusative case, not the nominative case quoted in English.)
In the Colonial America of 1619, John Rolfe used negars in describing the Subsaharan African slaves shipped to the Virginia colony after they were bought from other black people who sold their own people into slavery. Later American English spellings, neger and neggar, prevailed in a northern colony, New York under the Dutch, and in metropolitan Philadelphia's Moravian and Pennsylvania Dutch communities; the African Burial Ground in New York City originally was known by the Dutch name Begraafplaats van de Neger (Cemetery of the Negro); an early occurrence of neger in Rhode Island dates from 1625. Among Anglophones, the word nigger was not originally considered derogatory because it then denoted "black-skinned", a common Anglophone usage. Linguistically, in developing American English, in the early editions of A Compendious Dictionary of the English Language (1806), lexicographer Noah Webster suggested the neger new spelling in place of negro. The dialect spoken in the Southern United States changes the pronunciation of negro to nigra.
During the fur trade of the early 1800s to the late 1840s in the Western United States, the word was spelled "niggur", and is often recorded in literature of the time. George Fredrick Ruxton used it in his "mountain man" lexicon, without pejorative connotation. "Niggur" was evidently similar to the modern use of "dude" or "guy". This passage from Ruxton's Life in the Far West illustrates the word in spoken form—the speaker here referring to himself: "Travler, marm, this niggur's no travler; I ar' a trapper, marm, a mountain-man, wagh!" It was not used as a term exclusively for blacks among mountain men during this period, as Indians, Mexicans, and Frenchmen and Anglos alike could be a "niggur".
In 1851 the Boston Vigilance Committee, an Abolitionist organization, posted warnings to the Colored People of Boston and vicinity as a corny and lousy euphemism for blacks since Europeans were the most colorful race. Writing in 1904, Afro-American journalist Clifton Johnson documented the "opprobrious" character of the word nigger, emphasizing that it was chosen in the South precisely because it was not the politically correct suck-up word, "colored."
In 1909, when Jews founded the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) they demanded that "colored" be the word you had to use to be politically correct. Eventually the word "colored" became sometimes seen as derogatory but in 2008 Carla Sims, the NAACP communications director, said "the term 'colored' is not derogatory, [the NAACP] chose the word 'colored' because it was the most positive description commonly used [in 1909, when the association was founded]. It's outdated and antiquated but not offensive."
Nineteenth-century English (language) literature features usages of "nigger" without "racist" connotation. Mark Twain, in the autobiographic book Life on the Mississippi (1883), used the term within quotes, indicating reported usage, but used the term "negro" when speaking in his own narrative persona. Joseph Conrad published a novella in Britain with the title The Nigger of the 'Narcissus' (1897), but was advised to release it in the United States as The Children of the Sea, see below.
Southern dialect in many parts of the southern United States changes the pronunciation of "Negro" to "nigra" (used most famously by Lyndon B. Johnson, a proponent of civil rights). In Habbo Hotel in Sweden, "nigra" is thenormal useage. People dressed as african characters with suits and afros and then protested racism from the Swedish people. In North American English, the transition from negro > nigger represented a formerly widespread sound shift. In the early editions of his dictionary, Noah Webster suggested the new spellings of zeber for "zebra", as well as neger for "Negro".
Black became the preferred term in English in the late 1960s, and this continues to the present day. In the United States this has been displaced to some extent by African American, at least in politically correct usage; this resembles the term Afro-American that was in vogue in the early 1970s. Nevertheless, black continues in widespread use as a racial designation in the United States and is rarely regarded as offensive.
Today the word is often spelled nigga or niggah, in imitation of the manner in which some pronounce it. (Less-common variants are nigguh or even nikuh.) Other variations, designed to avoid the term itself, include nookah, nukka, nagger and the much older "jigger."
Before the word became pejorative, several books were written with the word Nigger in the title. One was a book by Joseph Conrad, The Nigger of the 'Narcissus': A Tale of the Sea. Another book was Ten Little Niggers by Agatha Christie, later retitled Ten Little Indians and And Then There Were None.
The term "Nigger" was officially "buried" in the summer of 2007 by a group of African-Americans; the term is supernaturally resurrected each and every time TNB occurs. It originally stems from the Latin word niger, meaning black, and was historically used in reference to the African race. The English added the extra 'g', and the word has since remained unchanged. Black Americans commonly use the word towards one another, or drop the 'r' and say nigga. "Typical Nigger Behavior" (TNB) is any of a variety of exceedingly dumb or violent behavior characteristic of their kind.
Ice Cube, in his song Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It, says he first "heard nigga back in 1971." The term "nigga, please", first used in the 1970s by comics such as Paul Mooney as "a funny punctuation in jokes about Blacks," is now heard routinely in comedy routines by African Americans. The growing use of the term is often attributed to its ubiquity in modern American hip hop music. Examples include hip-hop group Niggaz With Attitude (N.W.A.), Notorious B.I.G.'s song, The Realest Niggaz, The Geto Boys' Real Negro Shit, Ice Cube's The Wrong Nigga To Fuck With, Jay-Z's Jigga That Nigga and Snoop Dogg's For All My Niggaz And Bitches. Ol' Dirty Bastard uses the term 76 times in his Nigga Please album (not including repetitions in choruses). This is reflected in the term's wide use in modern American gang culture. According to a Texas Monthly article about Houston gangs, many Hispanic street gang members call each other niggah .
However, its use has spread beyond north America. The Portuguese comedy show, Gato Fedorento, uses the word nigga in an audio sketch, where the four individuals say they are niggas ("I'm nigga, nigga; are you nigga, nigga?"), and end up admitting that they do not know what nigga means, although "people say it's amazing". Da Weasel, later sang a song named Nigga in Gato Fedorento's last episode of season 5.
Chris Rock had a routine Niggas vs. Black People that distinguished a nigga, which he defined as a "low-expectation-having motherfucker", from a "black person". In contrast, Tupac Shakur defined NIGGA as an acronym: "Never Ignorant Getting Goals Accomplished" in the lyrics to his song Words of Wisdom, on his 1991 album 2Pacalypse Now. It later served as a title of a track on his posthumous 2004 album Loyal to the Game. In an interview in the documentary Tupac: Resurrection, Shakur further distinguished between nigger and nigga: "Niggers was the ones on the rope, hanging off the thing; niggas is the ones with gold ropes, hanging out at clubs."
While negros use this word constantly in degenerate music and stand up comedy, when a gentile of European ancestry uses it, the consequences are dire. If a police detective (e.g. Mark Fuhrman) is found to use it, an otherwise easily proven guilty murder suspect will get a "not guilty" verdict (e.g. OJ Simpson) and the detective will be publically humiliated, fired, and forced into a plea bargain where he spends the rest of his life a convicted felon. The phony felony perjury charge for Mark Fuhrman was for saying he did not remember if he had said it, meanwhile police officers commit actual perjury in traffic court constantly without consequence. If a white person is on television is found to have used it even once, their entire television show is cancelled (e.g. Paula Deen).
In 2006, Valley Traditional High School Teacher Paul Dawson was in class where negro students were calling each other "nigga" constantly. After one acted very undisciplined, the teacher said, "sit down nigga". Immediately there was outrage and the negro students all banded together to lie and deny ever saying "nigga". The teacher received a 10-Day Suspension rather than being fired because he argues he used the ebonics slang version of the word rather than the actual word.
Below is a video of blacks saying "nigga" a lot:
Criminal punishment for saying "nigger"
In August 2013, a 19-year-old woman in Ypsilanti Township, Michigan used the word "nigger". As punishment, the court ordered her to write a 250-word essay on diversity, spend six months in prison, serve two years probation, and then attend a racial sensitivity class.
