Diminutive, and less offensive version of nigger. Can be a term of endearment such as "You're my nigga!".
Etymology: From nigger, coming from dialects of the English language which are non-rhotic.
Nigga 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 dialects of English (including standard British English) that have non-rhotic speech, "nigger" and "nigga" are pronounced the same.
"Nigga" is a racial epithet primarily used in the African American community, often as a term of camaraderie or familiarity among friends. However, it is important to note that this term is highly controversial and can be seen as offensive and derogatory when used outside of this specific context.
Nigga is a colloquial term used in Black English Vernacular that began as an eye dialect form of the word nigger.
The spelling, pronounciation, meaning and usage of the word has been changed to convey a sense of pride and defiance, thereby removing the racial distinctness of the original term. Although similar in spelling and pronounciation to the original, its meaning is completely different. The word "nigga", when used between close friends, is as positive as the word "nigger" is negative. In general, whites should avoid use of the term, even in a positive sense, unless they are absolutely certain it will not be taken as derogatory.
