If you truly understood the lack of integrity and character it takes to refer to someone as "nigga", then you would immediatly not include that term in your everyday talk. I understand between black people how we tend to use the term as sort of endearing and homie-like with each other. Now, latinos, chicanos, filipinos, whites, etc...regularly use this term without any reprecussions or actions taken. I personally won't respond to to any post if you refer to me as "nigga". I prefer "brother" or "brotha". I don't care if slavery ended 200 years ago or that the civil rights war was 40 years ago, it is wrong and ignorant to refer to that term, period. It shows me you lack a complete vocabularly and have no respect for yourself or others around you. Oh and by the way, I used that term EVERYDAY until I was 17 and someone had the presence of mind to tell me how ignorant I sounded and then proceeded to give me the books "The souls of black folk" by WEB DuBois and the "Autobiography of Malcom X" by Alex Haley. If you read these books and still feel the urge for the word nigga, then you need some help.
I feel what your saying but a word is still a word just like if I came to you and said mama guevo if your not spanish or domican for that matter you wouldn't know what I'm saying people give words empowerment and you running away from the word or just associating the word with blacks gives the word and the people who made the word all the power in they need to continue to demean blacks and put them in a state of frenzy over the word.And by the way Dubois was a sellout mason

1. Nigger is not word, it is a derogatory term that was/is used against blacks for the purposes of degredation. is, of, term, people...those are words, homie.

2. In this situation, you empower people by giving them the right or excusing their behavior when they use that term. usually, lack of education or lack of understanding one's culture will lead to that type of ingnorance.

3. Your spanish example has no relevance whatsoever."Nigger" is a term expressed in english, not spanish, so everyone speaking english WILL understand it.

4. The term "nigger" is no longer an expression of hate or demise. now it is commonly used as a term of endearment or affection, ex: "i love my niggas" or "that's my nigga". The "frenzy" as you put it, seems to be headed in opposite direction towards acceptance. people who accept/enjoy being called "nigger" or "nigga" have never been enslaved, never fought for civil rights or have no understanding of their past, present or future.

5. I am a Prince Hall Mason, hailing from Tyre Lodge #29 in Newark, NJ. Can you please articulate to me what you mean by DuBois being a sellout mason? and how does a mason sellout?

Why is it so much worse when white people say it then?

cuz nowadays.. it seems to be more tensions between blacks & hispanics than between black & Whites..

anyway.. i think its foolish and looks stupid when a "non-black" says "nigga"..

I happen to be mexican and have never used the word nigga. I heard some mexicans say it and, I find it ridicoulus. It sounds very bizarre to me coming from a mexican so when, I hear a mexican talk like that, I just tell them why are you talking like that.

It's like a black dude saying "que onda ese" it just sounds weird.

mexicans only speak spanish because the spaniards conquered mexico....so ''que onda ese'' is not really a mexican saying...its spanish.

Mexicans do not speak thier original language.Blacks do not speak our original languages(in america).We both speak the language of people who conquered/enslaved our people.

What are you talking about it's mexican slang how can it be spanish. I doubt spaniards in spain say "que onda ese" yes their spanish words but it's a mexican slang.

:shock: I think we as black people should not use the word. Its an insulting name.

But I think other races use it cuzz its used so much in music, every race wanna rap now. So really what you see al over is everyone emulating the hated blackman. Kinda funny, they hate us but wanna be like us. Like this mexican rap group here they say my nigga in they rhyme, but they all mexican and dress in sean john. It all comes from the music.

Even though its known in NYC Puerto Ricans and Blacks have not always got along as best friends, they share the same hate for mexicans on the east coast and target esses as they see them as easy targets.
But PRs were using "Nigga" in the late 80s.

Read "In Search of Respect" by Phillipe Burgouis and you'll see that the people who are in the book are Puerto Ricans who speak Black Slang and love black culture but dont think too highly of em.

You know the only way a Mexican guy would call a black man a Nigger was if its like 6 Mexicans and only one black guy by him self. That's how Mexicans do things on that real bitch tip.

Mexicans only tough talk when they out number somebody. Sh_t to be honest with you, I would to if I was only 5'8 and weighed 130 pound (which alot of mexicans are) :lol: Damn, I wouldn't want to fight you either if you had 5 to 7 inches on me and where packing 50 more pounds then I had on me. Now, if I knew I out numbered you than shit, I'd be talking sh_t to. :lol:.......but on the real alot of they hate has to do with jealousy and insecurity, it's really that simple. I mean they will shoot a black man, because they women is on our d_ck. Don't be mad a the black man, be mad at your women! No!! Don't be mad at your women, you should be mad at your damnselves, because if you where holding it down with your women like you are suppose to, then you wouldn't need to worry about what the hell the black man was doing! Now, I'm not gonna sit here and act like I'm a fan of interracial dating, because by no means I'm I a fan of it, but let's just say a slew of sisters was to make the decision to start going out with mexican males like their women do with us :lol: .......Take a minute to think about that one. :lol: But, lets say sisters did that, do you think that black males would be shooting mexicans in the back like that? Hell no! You know why, because we ain't insecure like that! Funny thing is they be talking all that La Raza thing and how much they hate niggers or mayates, but they be walking, talkings and acting like the mayates they hate so damn much. :roll: I'm like what the fu_k! Do you see us trying to be mexicans and walking around with sumbreros(don't know if it's spelled like this) on our heads and walking around with our pants all the way to middle of our stomic do you? Hell no cause we know that shit looks rediculous! The mayne point i'm trying to make is to stop the dick riding and stop hating on the black man! 8) Why do I say that, because it just makes you look envious of us. Just like the other races. Haters!

Well if there's is something innately, naturally wrong with a word, then no one "should" say it. Just like fu-k, damn,, sh*t, B*tch, etc etc etc there is something offensive in the word, and thus no one should say it, so the same should go with n*gga, no one should say it.

By the way, did anyone see that Chappelle's Show episode with the white family with the last name Nigger? haha I don't really like Chappelle but that episode was hilarious

According to freedictionary.com, "nigga" means an offensive name for a black person: only a black can call another black a nigga".

The definition aint even right. I think this is more of a "where you grow up" and who you associate with kinda thing. I live in the Jersey/NYC area and part of my life I lived in a small town in Jersey. The black people that lived there didnt even use that word to each other. Probably because there wasnt much slang/street talk being used in that town. Then I moved to a city closer to NYC, and the word is used alot, by blacks, puerto ricans, and some other ethnic groups.

Some of you may say it aint right if a white person says it. Is it right for a black to call a white a nigga?

I really do think it has alot to do with what area you live in and the type of people living there. Where I live, the word "nigga" is just another word for "dude". Some may or may not feel comfortable saying it or hearing it, but like I said before, it depends on how you were brought up and who you associate with. Im sure that word is used alot more freely than other areas and thats why im saying that I think this is more of a cultural thing than the color of your skin.

If you have to be black(meaning dark skinned) to say nigga, than I guess im in the wrong even tho im part black but not dark at all. Its stupid for those of you who think that. Just think......20-25+ years, the US is going to be so much more diverse.

Just my 2 cents.

What about getting called that to? People say n*gga to me all the time and I'm not even black, and do that to a lot of people

And you're right, it's dumb, either everyone can say it or no one, this only "black people can say it" is BS, that is like saying only women can say "b*tch" or something, that is retarded

Not only is the definition wrong, like you said, the way people say it, it's like it just mean "guy" or "dude"

Instead of ladies and gentlemen, it's b*tches and n*ggas, that's kinda sad
