I don’t really use that word at all just when I am joking around with my friends, but at the k.o.d tour i met met glasses Malone and he said that after I heard him rap he said I would say “Damn who the fuck was that nigga” and he said I would use that word too. If you are not a white supremacist and you are not using it to offend any one I figure it is perfectly fine to say in this day and age.
The term “nigger” originally meant criminal, lowlife, etc. Over time it became a term used solely when describing Africans.
The term “nigga” started as a way for African-Americans to turn a term of hatred into a term of endearment. The word “nigger” would never, ever go away, so why not take the hatred out of the term?
Regardless of all of that, the word is simply a word. As Bryden said, it only has the power and meaning that you give it. I can call my girlfriend or any female friend a bitch, and 100% of the time they are not offended. Why? Because both sides recognize that there is no ill-will behind my use of the word. Same logic, I’m a white dude with dreadlocks. I am very used to hearing myself called “dread, dreadlock, Rasta, etc.” I’m never offended because it’s typically not offensive, to be simple. But when I was arrested and the skinhead cop kept calling “dreadlocks”, I took offense to that. He knew my name, he had my ID. He was referring to me as “dreadlocks” in a way that conveyed a negative feeling toward me.
Honestly it sounds cliche, but there truly is a HUGE difference between niggER and niggA, I don’t care who says otherwise.
In all honesty, I use “nigga” sometimes. Even with my black homies, they don’t care. It’s a word that people themselfs are overrating. Big Scoob said it to, “when I say nigga, I don’t just mean my black fella’s, its everyone”. We are past all the shit that happened in the past. It’s time to take the offensive power out of “nigger” and make it a word that represents a different and positive meaning. Yaddamean ma niggaz lol
LOL haha no they dont get a pass fuck that! lol but naw seriously i dont use that word and im black i feel like if i can use it yeah anyone should be able to use it so i dont…but white people who put emphasis on it when they got to say something is just plain out stupid. people who us it to sound cool cuz their white and they just said the N word is just stupid. Anyone who says Nigger is just plain out stupid, black or white, if their not using it in a educated manor.
