Nigga

Nigga (/ˈnɪɡə/) is a colloquial term used in African American Vernacular English that began as an eye dialect form of the word nigger, an ethnic slur against black people. In some dialects of English, the word is pronounced the same as nigger, including where common speech is non-rhotic.

Whether you choose to acknowledge it or not, create your own reality to justify the use of the term, or simply don’t care, the fact remains that the term “Nigga” was birthed by “Nigger.” The word is charged with darkness and hate, and the use of it will continue to have its subconscious psychological effects, even if you are in denial of it. Let’s also keep in mind that this word, if used in the UK or South Africa, is an actual charge.
