Because I am sick and tired of people saying that the word nigger is only used in reference to ignorant people, I think we need have a real history lesson of this word. So since it is Black History Month I think it's time we learn some real Black History. The word Nigger derived from the Latin word for black which was 'Niger'.

Here is how Wikipedia describes the history of 'Nigger':

Earlier variants (such as neger or negar) derive from the Spanish/Portuguese word negro, meaning "black", and probably also the French nègre, which has also been used pejoratively (but also positively as in Négritude), derived from negro (the ordinary French word for "black" being noir). Both negro and noir (and therefore also nègre and nigger) ultimately come from nigrum, the accusative form of the Latin adjective word niger, meaning "black".

In Colonial America, negars was used in 1619 by John Rolfe, describing slaves shipped to Virginia colony.[5] Neger (sometimes spelled "neggar") also prevailed in northern New York under the Dutch and also in Philadelphia, in its Moravian and Pennsylvania Dutch communities. For example, the African Burial Ground in New York City was originally known as "Begraafplaats van de Neger" (Dutch phrase meaning "Cemetery of the negro" in English).

In the United States, the word nigger was not always considered derogatory, but was instead used by many as merely denotative of black skin, as it was in other parts of the English-speaking world. In nineteenth-century literature, there are many uses of the word nigger with no intended negative connotation. Charles Dickens, and Joseph Conrad (who published The Nigger of the 'Narcissus' in 1897) used the word without racist intent. Mark Twain often put the word into the mouths of his characters, white and black, but did not use the word when writing as himself in his autobiographical Life on the Mississippi.

In the United Kingdom and other parts of the English-speaking world, the word was often used to refer to people of Pakistani or Indian descent, or merely to darker-skinned foreigners in general; in his 1926 Modern English Usage, H. W. Fowler observed that when the word was applied to "others than full or partial negroes," it was "felt as an insult by the person described, & betrays in the speaker, if not deliberate insolence, at least a very arrogant inhumanity." The note was excised from later editions of the book.

In the 1800s, as nigger began to acquire the pejorative connotation it holds today, the term "Colored" gained popularity as a kinder alternative to negro and associated terms. For example, abolitionists in Boston, Massachusetts posted warnings to "Colored People of Boston and vicinity." The name of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People reflects the preference for this term at the time of the NAACP's founding in 1909.

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 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".(Source)[

  1. Wow..you use wikipedia as your main source for trying to defend your statements then you really must be a Nigger. Try finding some real sources and not just some made up bullshit that niggers like yourself want to make it out to be. NIGGER: did mean to be ignorant at one time. Now because of all the blacks its wrong and whites can't use it but its ok for us to call eachother "Niggers" and "Niggas". Kind of a double edge sword don't you think...oh wait you don't think thats right I forgot your just a nigger. And another thing that shows you are just ignorant niggers is the fact that all you black people think your the reason Obama is now president! WAKE THE FUCK UP PLEASE! YOU PEOPLE DID NOT DO IT ALONE EVEN IF YOU NIGGERS WANT TO TAKE ALL THE CREDIT FOR IT! THERE WERE PLENTY OF DUMBASS WHITE PEOPLE THAT HELPED HIM TO! SO PLEASE SHUT THE FUCK UP AND GO BACK TO AFRICA YA NIGGER!

  3. Just Take a Second......

    ok ok ok.....First and foremost Anonymous said you need to work on your debating skills.

    The very first thing you did was attack the person who wrote the blog instead of the idea. Example " Wow..you use wikipedia as your main source for trying to defend your statements then you really must be a Nigger."

    I must agree with what you said about using wikipedia. It is not the most creditable source. However, it is good to use to obtain basic knowledge about an certain topic. So if this is what the blogger was going for (to give people a basic knowledge of the word Nigger), then I believe wikipedia did an ok job.

    The word Nigger has many cononations and it has changed many times throughout history. At one point it meant to describe someones color (before and during the early parts of slavery), then the word Nigger was used in a derogatory sense towards Blacks, claiming that they were ignorant, child-like, uneducated (during and after slavery, during Jim Crow, Civil Rights era and some will argue now). Now when the word Nigger is use it usually refers back to Blacks in that derogatory sense. In modern times that word has been re-appropriated by Blacks with a slight spelling difference (Nigga) which does have that derogatory connotations. It is suppose to be looked at as empowering sisterly and brotherly love. And yes many Blacks feel only they should be able to use. (Though I believe no one should use it because to me (Nigga and Nigger)mean the same. They both have that derogatory feel).

    As far as Barack Obama is concern of course he did not win off the Black vote a lone. If only all the Black people in the U.S. voted for Obama he wouldn't have won. But that is what made his campaign so great because he mobilized and got many people involved as he could.



    I hope and pray that you are not a Black person who posted this because you would be an embarrassment to our culture."SO PLEASE SHUT THE FUCK UP AND GO BACK TO AFRICA YA NIGGER!" That line right there is old and played out. Blacks are not going any where. we are here to stay. And just for your information Africa is a beautiful place. Don't forget how man-kind started.

  4. First of all you are both idiots. anonymous 1 and 2. Who really cares where the word came from? look what its become. If i say nigger im a racist, if a black person says it they're talking to a friend. WTF IS THAT? Black poeple did the best thing they could with the word, they did what they do best THEY STOLE IT! LOL! Cmon now really, in this day and age shouldnt we be past silly name calling and get down to brass tacks. Just let it go its just a word. you say that africa is beautiful, and ive never been so im sure it is, but they have more famine, pestilince, disease, war, genicide and deaths per capita IN THE WORLD. Arica sucks, you couldnt pay me to live there. And why would black people here want to go back to that. Just grow up and let it go. Nothing is gonna change with Obama anyways. Everyones giving him more credit than he deserves. HE HAD TO SWEAR IN TWICE FOR GOD SAKE! Hes just a man, thats all. He wont change shit. Grow up and let it be. Dumbfucks.

    1. Black and white steal, and if anything, white people are the biggest thieves. Nothing is bigger than stealing a race from its country and stealing their and other races gold and jewelry. And livelihoods. Stealing them from their happy wife's and family's. Stealing a young black girls virginity through rape. I love all races, but watch and research what you say before you say It. Master your 3rd eye.

  6. DAMN... IT REALLY SHOWS THAT THE WORD NIGGER, NIGGA, NIGGAH IS REALLY A DEROGATORY WORD. IT AMAZES ME THAT YOU WOULD GET SO UPSET AT THE FACT A CULTURE OF PEOPLE WOULD TRY TO SHINE LIGHT ON A WORD THAT HAS BEEN A NASTY STIGMA FOR A GROUP OF PEOPLE FOR SO LONG. I AGREE THAT IT SHOULD BE SEEN AS JUST A WORD BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT THE PEOPLE WHO IMPLEMENTED THE WORD ONLY DEMEANED US BECAUSE OF THEIR OWN INSECURITIES AND FEELING OF INFERIORITY SO WHEN YOU SAY THAT, I GIVE YOU CREDIT FOR ACKNOWLEDGING YOUR PEOPLE AND THEIR OWN IGNORANCE AND FREE USE OF THE WORD NIGGER. YOU ARE PROBABLY A WHITE COAT WEARING MONKEY YOURSELF. AND UNFORTUNATELY FOR YOU SLAVERY IS OVER SO YOUR ONLY PLATFORM FOR THE USE OF THIS WORD IS THROUGH THIS SITE. I AM BEING VERY IGNORANT AT THIS TIME TO EVEN RESPOND TO YOUR COMMENT. AND WHEN YOU SAY BLACK PEOPLE DID WHAT THEY DO BEST "STOLE THE WORD"... HA,HA,HA. YOU AND YOUR RACIST ANCESTORS KNOW THAT EVERYTHING THAT THIS COUNTRY WAS BUILT ON, WAS FROM THE BLOOD AND SWEAT OF BLACKS. BECAUSE YOU AND YOUR KIND WAS TO LAZY AND TOO DAMN STUPID TO EVEN COMPREHEND THE FIRST PART OF BEAUTIFYING GOD'S LAND. BLACKS TAUGHT YA'LL NIGGA'S HOW SING, DANCE, PLAY BALL, THEY EVEN BREAST FED YOUR RED BABIES. SO COME HARDER THEN THAT. AS FOR WIKIPEDIA I AGREE THAT PEOPLE WITH DEGREES POST AND UPDATE INFORMATION FREQUENTLY, HOWEVER OUR LAST PRESIDENT HAD A "DEGREE" AND HE PASSED WITH A C AVERAGE...SO HE PROVED: OPINIONS ARE LIKE BUTTHOLES, EVERYONE HAS THEM. PRESIDENT OBAMA WINNING OFFICE SHOWS THAT THERE IS AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN A HIGHER POWER IN CHARGE. WHEN HE WON OFFICE "NIGGA,NIGGER" IS NOT AS POWERFUL AS IT HAD BEEN BEFORE. AND YOUR COMMENT THAT IT IS JUST A WORD IS RIGHT BECAUSE HE THOUGHT OF HIMSELF TO BE GREATER THEN THE WORD AND WHAT IT MEANT FOR SO LONG. I GUESS YOU CAN LABEL YOUR PEOPLE THAT VOTED AND HELPED TO GET A GREAT MAN IN OFFICE AS "NIGGER LOVERS" CAUSE THEY LOVED THEM SO OBAMA! YES WE CAN!FOR U STAY IGNORANT ,IT KEEPS THE WORLD MOVING... GOD BLESS.

  9. It's extremely funny reading what all had to say about this one word but in truth how old are you all? For one, Nigger means ignorant and was used to be little another ethnicity. I'm shocked that now in 2009 there are still indiviuals who say blacks should "go back to Africa" when this country belongs to no one but the Native Americans. Every so-called "white" person is from a European Ancestry whether u like it or not,most black persons have African Ancestry(I did say most not all), Asians,Mexicans and so on. It just angers me that no one wants to take the blame but instead put it off on others. Black people use the word "nigga" and some Euro-Americans cannot, well in question to those who complain about it and are not black. Do you want to use it too? I mean do u feel unfairly treated because you are not reccommended to use a word that was used to put down only blacks and now that blacks take it and use it as a word to title certain friends, Would u like an entitlement to use it as well? What do u want? If you think that no one should use it then your being ridiculous becuase that will not happen due to how the world is. So instead of that option what would you have Blacks or African Americans do with the word say, " let every Euro-Americans-who tried to hurt them with this word and their offspring along with everyone esle use it"? I'm not sure what most are looking for in this conflict? Obama yes, did not win the election with Black votes alone but instead won by a large number of Euro-American votes. All in all I'm not afraid to state I am a Balck-not African american person and am no "Nigger." Get into school and learn that not all persons that look black are African American. I, nor my family desended from Afirca but in fact my antestry started here thanks to a lovely slave owner and his sexual encounter with an already american born bi-racial slave and "boom" through that my family started. So where does my ancestry begin Africa or Europe? So when getting into an argument please do it intelligently and know that because of all the dirt and secrets the past holds no one unless recently immigrated here has no pure blood and is mixed with something. Go family searching and see what your family contains.

  10. agreed that everyone should be able to use the word, depending on your meaning that u imply on it, and barack obama, let alone anyone, is pure black, if anything he is half, and the fact that we worship somoeone for being first of their color is racist itself. i hate the fact that there are companies that are forced to hire people just because of their ethnic backround(affirmitave action). it should be based solely on a meritocracy. i am (from what i can tell from my geneaology) half native american, and various differences of spanish, italian, and philipino, and i want to know, when is white history month? and asian history month? what about german?and all the other stoopid ass months thinking that makes things different?

    idk maybe im bering ignorant because i want to not be racist by ignoring race....hm a little oxymoronic yes?

  13. I will start off by saying that I am a white non racist female. I don't like to hear white people calling black people the N word. I've had black friends call me Nigga also...lol...but I still would not be comfortable saying it to them. There is so much hate in the world. People are people no matter what color they are, light skin, dark skin, we are from the "human" race. Will we ever get free of racism in the world? Probably not, leave the racists to themselves. There will always be those that want to stir things up and hurt people. Instead of judging people by their skin color people should unite and go after these pedophile, child abductors, unite to do some good in the world.

    I experience the term "N" as a terrorist term. It has always been associated with terrorist acts against a group of people based on skin color. The use of it is an act of terrorism as it strongly suggests violence, even death to people of color. Wherever blacks were lynched, you found it being used there. When blacks who are better qualified are denied jobs, enrollment or contracts because of their color, you will find it spoken. The greatest act of domestic terrorism was not "9/11". It was arguably the violent and malicious enslavement of human beings and the subsequent subjection of people of color to second class citizenship. This holocaust continues as we see by the comments of our racist neighbor. The civil war has already been fought and you don't want to go there again. Next time, everybody will be armed. Blacks have fought and died for this country in every one of it's wars. We have shed blood in the same graves with whites, browns, reds and yellows who abhor racism. You might as well tone down the rhetoric, because no one is afraid of you anymore.

  15. It is sad that we spin this word into whatever we like in order to justify its use. We cite context as the difference between one person using the word vs another person using it. Sometimes we forget that history won't change with context...no matter how you use it, it will always ring with the negative connotation that it is most famous for. For Caucasian people it is definitely off limits. But what about African Americans claiming to "re-claim" the word for some good use? How do you do that over the graves of your mothers and fathers who died under the tyranny of it? What of their fight to be free of the title that justified their rape, murder, and destruction of their heritage in the name of more tobacco, cotton, and money? So we just turn it into a term of endearment? That easy huh? If you witnessed your mother being raped while you watched, or your father being hung from a tree because that was common and fair actions for "niggers", would you be so willing to make the word into a term of endearment then? People do it so easily because we are so distanced from the reality of the injustices. We have become de-sensitized to it. Whips were for horses well before they became tools to control Africans, but we don't advocate some "good" reason for beating one another until our backs are opened...or do we? I don't suppose we ascribe greater esteem and privilege to our lighter skinned African American children because they are better than our darker children...or do we? I guess, by some people's estimation, all of that would be ok to do, as long as we re-claim those practices and ascribe some "good" notion to them for today....that'll make them alright...right?
    Truth and Dignity ought to cause us to make better choices about ourselves. None of us are perfect, but none of us are inferior. And why continue to beat ourselves into submission? Haven't we suffered enough of that? I don't care who you are or what ethnic or racial group any of you are a part of. I am an American of African descent. I respect God, myself, and all human beings. We can potentially be friends, or brothers, or even family, but... I am NOT, nor will I ever be your "nigga, or niggah, or nigger"...and you are not mine!

  16. Words evolve, faggot.

    When you thought of faggot, did you think 'homosexual'? No you thought 'stupid' or 'dumbass.'

    Words evolve, nigger is more of a universal insult than it used to be, but some black people don't have any problem shouting it at anyone or anything. Either a word is bad or it isn't. You can't "take back" a word, it's a goddamn word. I am not saying that nigger did not at one time refer to an stupid black person, but it does not now.


    Also, quit making making judgments based on the amount of melanin someone has in their blood. A white person can be a stupid prick in the same way a black person can.

  19. black people need to get the hell over it jesus christ. black people need to just grow up already the slavery thing happened a LONG times ago when none of you were even alive. its like the chinese still being mad at the mongolians. get over it! no other race makes such a big deal out of anything. black people can only remember slaver! racism! rosa parks! martin luther king! if any black child does a report on martin luther king or rosa parks its an instant A++. what if white people just claimed they're own word? can we do that? cause black people can. what if just claimed the word book. according the black people nigger law theory we could if white people found it offensive and black people would just have to deal with it. asians arent mad at us for the railroad thing, so black people shouldnt be mad at white people. remember it was a white man that set you free from slavery and many white people died for you to be free so be at least a little thankful. black people if you dont like it here in present day "racist america" go to africa then. the word "nigger" is just a word in the english language. it should not control people and keep them from using the right of free speak. secondly obama did win partly from the black vote and from idiot Opra Winfree who told all of her viewers what a great president barack would be. people are idolizing obama like hes some god that will save all of us and fix the wars, get rid of the economy problem, and make the united states heaven on earth but obama isnt what we're discussing here. many black people think that EVERYBODY hates them. oh the teacher gave me an F for being black, oh that cop gave me a ticket cause im black, or oh i didnt get that job cause im black. black people the white community has repayed you and then some. now black people you are just getting concided. i mean you have your own month! get over yourself already.

You sound so intelligent right now every thing the white man base their pride on black people did first from slavery to modern day inventions but because white people thought they were so inferior they stole every thing flipped it to keep the black race down and black people are as much to blame because they let them do it and so what black people have one month you all have eleven the world needs to stop being so ignorant no American has pure blood there isn't a superior race because we all came from Adam and Eve who by the way were black made in God's image who was a spirit birthed as a man to be an example

  20. A friend and I were recently talking about childhood memories. His were far older than mine. When recalling the poor neighborhood I grew up in I mentioned that in school, I was often treated like I was a nigger. Inferior, stupid, and not worthy of respect or kindness were the connatations I meant and was what he understood. Of course the origin of the word as now used refers to blacks. My friend did not take offense of my use of the word as he knew what I meant and my use of nigger conveyed just how poorly I was treated as a child. So if I call someone a nigger, it is an insult of the most extreme kind. Of course I don't do that. But if I were to, it would not have racial connotations as much as negative character connotations, i.e, lazy, stupid, dishonest.

    That's how I see it.

  21. Nigger is was what people who picked cotton were called about 200 years ago, and white people, American Indians etc. who picked cotton were called niggers also, not just blacks. It was a job title, not a racial slur. The three finger method of picking the cotton fibers out of the plant was called nigging. When asked what they did for a living, they would say "I'm a cotton nigger.

    Please educate yourself and stop the misinformation.

  22. Some anon. felt the need to give us the "definition" of nigger...nand then procede to tell us that we need to educate ourselves and stop the misinformation. I don't know what your source is on the definition you cited but, whether a cotton picker was called nigger or not, the truth is whites weren't called nigger after they stopped picking cotton...right? So why did whites continue to call blacks niggers after they no longer picked cotton? Was it because the definition was revised to a derogatory slur?

    Understand the evolution of word definitions and stop skewing information in order to escape the reality of it! If the cotton definition thing is your argument...its terribly weak.

Don't allow peoples ignorance to upset you ---- we are all of ONE RACE - THE HUMAN RACE - there are just various shades and cultures - instead of demeaning a particular shade and/or culture why not study it so that you have a better understanding - knowledge is power --- build yourself up by gaining knowledge instead of beating others down because of your ignorance ~ God Bless

  26. It's amazing how negativity and negative people seem to find their way into positive conversations. After reading everyone's comments, it is safe to say that most people agree that the word derived from the slave-trade and the spanish word for "black" is the seed from which it grew. In my opinion, there is no meaning for the word, only a bunch of illusions to its representation. The fact is that the word was, has been, and still is a slap in the face to Black Americans, regardless if Blacks or any other race uses it. Hate and belittlement is the primary reason we are discussing it at all; but when you look at the group of people in society that have chosen to identify the word with Blacks, they have also identified their own as being white-trash, trailer-trash, and nigger-lovers. So what do you expect from people that hate themselves. At one time, they wanted blacks to believe that they swung from trees and were "Monkeys'Uncles". But the history of Europe, teaches that the word Caucasian identified the cave-dwellers of the Caucus Mountains where they slept in their feces, ate their meat raw, slept with animals, and ran around naked uncivilized. Being called a nigger is not worst then being called a "Caucasian."

  27. The year is 2010, but the ignorance exhibited in some of these conversations seems as though we are back during slavery time again. What is sad is that every race has some type of terrible atrocitie in theirhatred history. It's amazing that a variety of races still exist today. The that human beings have shown each other is shocking. We have chosen to hate for some really petty reasons. All people of all races have been ignorant at one time or another I don't feel one is any better than the next. We hate each other because of skin color, financial status, sexual preferences,educational status, we'll even hate someone because they have a better car, bigger house, better job. Come on people haven't our decendants suffered enough. When will we ever move on and beyond what happened yesterday. It is our history but it doesn't have to be our future. I have been called a few names in my time and if they were not on my birthcertificate I hated them all.Blacks aren't the only race that has a derogatory word used to describe them. I personally don't react over any ignorant words.I came to this site by chance while working on a research paper and I just can't believe what I am reading and how we as people are addressing each other. Everyone of you are intelligent or you wouldn't be able to communicate in this forum, so why are we the intelligent speaking with so much ignorance and hatred over a WORD. It became whatever people wanted it to mean. It doesn't faze me at all. What does worry me is when I see people expressing negativity to one another over this word I guess that kind of tells us what we need to do with it. It hasn't exactly brought out the best in everyone has it. Kind of like the word BITCH if you think about it. Is it a female dog, a complement, or a insult? Which one is it to you hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

  28. Well, first of all, Everybody is human and we have the same color blood. What also make us similar is that we all die, no matter what color you are. God will end the world, no matter what. He doesn't care if you are white, black, Mexican, Asian, HE will still end the world. Nobody is higher than others because the only person that is higher than everybody, yes even whites, is Jesus Christ. Anyways, The word Nigger don't bother me because of its definition. Yes, i am black, but I am not ignorant, ghetto, or lazy. It pretty pointless ti hate others because the our race(human) will be whipped out soon. So use this time now until the end, to love others and accept them who they are. God is Love; The way to love God is to love others, but if you hate others,especially because of Skin Color, you can't love God. You can't love someone who you CAN'T see, but hate someone who you CAN see. I am a black male and the word nigger don't offend me. If somebody calls me that, i would tell them, "Yes, i am a black person, but I am NOT ignorant, ghetto, nor lazy".

  31. My response is to the first comment.
    If anyone is an ignorant, un- educated person it's you. I am a haitian descent woman about to share some knowledge to you.
    FYI: The term Nigger originates from the Latin word Niger which already means black. So after the 1800s is when they started using the word in a pejorative context. In the U.S., it was used that way out of hate and jealousy with no explanation behind it or for it, except for the fact that the skin color is brown.
    But we all know "THE BLACKER THE BERRY, THE SWEETER THE JUICE" and so i love my beautiful dark skin and you can't and won't ever brainwash me.

  34. I was having a discussion the other day regarding the use of the "N" word with some black and white friends and when I said it referred to black people and everyone knows that, there was an uproar. I was told (by my white friend) that I was wrong, it referred to "ignorant" people. My response to that was, have you ever been called an "N" word? I haven't. Have you ever heard the word used in regards to anyone other than a black person? I haven't. My point was that though the dictionary offers ONE of the meanings of the word to be "ignorant" it's not how the word is used.
    The "N" word to me is a highly derogatory word and one that no one, black or white should use. I don't care if the word ends in "er" or "a", it just shouldn't be used.
    When a group of people who have fought so hard for equality, who's leaders died fighting for those rights uses the "N" word so lightly really bothers me. I don't see them taking the word and changing it to mean something else. If that were the case then anyone could use the "N" word and not get a beat down. But that's not the case. I can't use the word because I am white, (not that I would). If I were to walk up to a black person (who is my friend) and say, "what up "N" " what do you think their response would be? They would say..."I know you didn't just say that".
    To me the word has no positive meaning what so ever. When I hear the word I think of slavery and black people being degraded and oppressed. I think it's an ugly and offensive word that can't be renewed with a different meaning and I don't think black people should use it to refer to each other in any sense.
    I also think hip hop and rap need to stop proliferating the use of the word because it sends a message that it's ok to use the word.

  35. Greetings to all,

    I landed on this site today because I wanted to know where the word "nigger" originated from. I was curious to find out, because of the recent flap over Mark Twains books being edited to remove the term "nigger". i think this move is a travesty. It's a word that we all need to remember, so that we are reminded of our past mistakes. The word simply is a derivative meaning "black". Time and insensitivity have altered the meaning to a more derogatory result. The continued use of the word, regardless of its varied spellings, will make certain that the word will live on in perpetuity. If that's what the black community wants, so be it. Knock yourselves out. If you choose to demean yourselves on purpose, ... well, that's what we Americans call free will. Notice, it's not called "intelligent will". If you want to prove your stupidity, then carry on with the "nigga" talk. Otherwise, grow up and start the change today.
    I hate the word for it's implied and varied meanings, and Obama hasen't done one thing to help prevent the spread of racial stupidity and discontent. If anything, he's made it worst.
    IN SUMMARY,TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY: IF YOU CONTINUE TO USE THE WORD, WE HONKIES WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP IT IN OUR VOCABULARY. IT'S THAT SIMPLE. It's your call.

  36. I have to write a paper on whether or not white people should call black people niggers or not or should no one say the word. This website and people comments are very helpful. I ran across a comments saying " being called a nigger is not worst than being called a caucasian" I am a Black girl and i must say i agree. Caucasin actually means a dead asian
    nigger is an ignorant person.

  37. I find some of these posts very offensive and if the word is causing people to talk to each other with such contempt - then in my opinion it should be avoided. The word is totally un necessary and with it's controversial history, what's the point of using it at the risk of offending others? It certainly isn't missed in my vocabulary.

  38. Wow, Everyone is so smart up here. The word or words used today derived from the Latin Word Negro. Negro Means black. It changed forms while it was in our country and from whom used it. PERIOD!!!

    Cracker is just as bad as Nigger. It's alright when a black person calls someone who's white and were born 50-60 years after slavery a cracker. Cracker means you were behind the whip repressing black people.

    The same sensitive people who react to this shit are the same people using cuss words and don't know history. Most people blogging are starting fights with others over these topics are usually between the ages of 12-35 years old.

    I was paying a ticket in town one day last year and two hispanic guys probably about 22 years old started with the white women behind the glass, They started calling her cracker,Saying you dont want to help us because were not white. They had none of thier documents or thier license to take care of thier motor vehlicle problems with thier suspended license. The women was solely there to recieve the money for tickets.

    The youth today, White,Black,Red,yellow are learning bullshit from dumb ass people who are going nowhere in life,or stupid music videos.

    Also, Blacks love it when hispanic people call themselves niggers or call black people niggers and it originated from the latin countries. Go Figure.

  42. I really just am shocked on the first persons comment "just because you are black doesn't mean you are from Africa" in fact there are very few people today that can say they are true African Americans.If you are not that educated to know that in the first place you shouldn't have the right to speak ever. And personally i do not think that it is ever ok to say the N word, yes it is just a word, but a word at one time that was used to discriminate towards people bc of the color of their skin. white people need to keep that in mind when they use the word and try to understand why it offends people so much. You cant help the way you look. And if white people want to go around and say what up "cracka" to one another go ahead. NO one is stopping you.

  46. I see a lot of tough guys trolling while hiding behind the "Anonymous" handle. Typical.

    Let me give you an example of why blacks may use the word and whites may not.

    My friend walks up to me and says, "How's it goin', asshole?" I respond by laughing.

    Now, a stranger walks up to me and says, "How's it goin', asshole?" I punch that stranger in the face.

    Did you see how that worked? The word has two different meanings depending on the context.

    Go read some books, you fucking jackasses. "Wah, wah, white people don't get to be racist anymore, wah." Buncha babies.

  48. Do note all the white people claiming they aren't racist, yet they lump all blacks into the "nigga-using" category.

    I don't think these white people actually have a lot of black friends. If they did, they'd know that the word "nigga" is highly controversial in the black community, especially between younger and older members.

    Not every black person thinks that it's okay to use the word, regardless of how it's spelled. Stop being racist; stop lumping all blacks into a single category.

  49. wow.. . Do you see what one word can start? It's amazing to me, how much hate is still in the world. USA is a melting pot for everyone. One Nation Under God. Yes, this nation has it's history, .. but we are supose to learn from it.. and correct it.
    Are we supose to move on and forget about it... I should say not... however, are we suppose to fight about it for centuries to come? I can't believe what I am reading.. Grown people calling each other names and sending people to hell and africa, accusing them of beating their wifes, stealing words, living on the system and they don't even know who they are writing to. All of this stemed from a word... I ask this question with sincerety.... Do we really want to continue to use this word or any other word that would cause such hate to arise out of ones soul? It is a sign of being hip or cool to use the word, it is a sign of intellegence? It is more hip to be cool or intellegent? Sometimes I wish that we can see ourselfs from the outside and evaluate our own actions and then and maybe just then we will not like what we see and correct it.

  50. Don't rightly care if all of you Niggers, Niggas, Honkeys, Crackas, Wetbacks, Gingers, Frostbacks, Gooks, Chinks, Chiggas, and whatever other sad sorry spawn you crawled from. I hate/exploit you because of where your from, who your parents were, what you believe in, who you associate with, you have no place on my grey earth. You all are hairless monkeys with a putrid slime that comes from your pits. You all smell and look the same. You are nothing to me but shit on the bottom of my boot. You will be crushed. The Party will prevail. The ideal set up by the Party was something huge, terrible, and glittering—a world of steel and concrete, of monstrous machines and terrifying weapons—a nation of warriors and fanatics, marching forward in perfect unity, all thinking the same thoughts and shouting the same slogans, perpetually working, fighting, triumphing, persecuting—three hundred million people all with the same face. We are not content with negative obedience, nor even with the most abject submission. When finally you surrender to us, it must be of your own free will. We do not destroy the heretic because he resists us; so long as he resists us we never destroy him. We convert him, we capture his inner mind, we reshape him. We burn all evil and all illusion out of him we bring him over to our side, not in appearance, but genuinely, heart and soul. We make him one of ourselves before we kill him. It is intolerable to us that an erroneous thought should exist anywhere in the world, however secret and powerless it may be. Even in the instance of death we cannot permit any deviation . . . we make the brain perfect before we blow it out. Because Never again will you be capable of ordinary human feeling. Everything will be dead inside you. Never again will you be capable of love, or friendship, or joy of living, or laughter, or curiosity, or courage, or integrity. You will be hollow. We shall squeeze you empty and then we shall fill you with ourselves.But always—do not forget this Slave Monkey—always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stomping on a human face—forever.

  52. To all posters:
    1. Have you noticed (in these posts) how many times you have lumped a group of people together under one label?
    2. Has it occurred to you that you could stop labeling people and instead learn to live with the people in proximity to you?
    3. Did you notice how stupid you sound when you use the word "all" with any group of people?
    4. While my ancestors may have come from Germany (on my Father's side, at least), I am not German-American. I've never been to Germany. I don't speak German. Nor do I take responsibility for what Germans have done before me. I'm American...born in the United States of America to parents who were born in the United States of America. I do not take responsibility for what Americans have done before me either.

I am caucasian, yet most of my adult life my friends have been black. I use the word "nigga" to black folk and they just laugh, as I do with them.

And why would a nigga want to be called an African-American---that TRULY is 2-faced, hypocritical BS. You are either American or not. If the Black (nigga) community want to be African, then why don't they go back to Africa and live and NEVER come back??? Obviously they want to stay in the past---OK by me, just get the past straight and quit trying to change it to suit your wants and hypocritical desires, wake up idiots. Call me a nigga, but don't call me an idiot. One Last thing---stop saying your black skin is light, dark or in between, your either black (nigga) or you're not, period!

  55. My dogs name is "Digger" and believe me I knew that name was going to be trouble from the start. Well, one day I was getting digger into the car and I said "Let's go Digger, get into the car. Lo and behold there was a black lady next to my car and she was astonished. She said alarmingly "What did you just call me"? I said "I'm sorry, if I offended you, but I was just telling my dog Digger (putting heavy emphasis on the "D") to get into the car. I further explained to the lady that I was white on the outside, but black as night on the inside -(I believe that I am also a soulful person deep inside myself). I also have to say that Digger is a happy dog that loves to play and he loves everyone, except those with ulterior motives, and believe me --he's a very intuitive creature and he knows if your intentions are hostile/malevolent.

  57. For you ignorant morons who keep repeating the word Nigger, like it supposed to mean, black or African American people, check your facts. Reading some of the these posts, I see many so called Niggers, and I'm quite sure there are many white ones as well as others. Being racist is not very becoming any more. If you need to say the word nigger to feel better about yourself or to demean others then move to Africa, see how that works for you.
    By the way for all of you african american militants, the first black slaves were enslaved by wealthy black men and women, hmmm interesting, and another interesting fact, the first slaves were white, and many more were white well before black slaves. Go to Egypt and you can see there work. The less ignorant people know that the Pyramids were built by slaves, and they weren't black.

  58. Is it any wonder racism still runs rampant in America? I mean, it was scarcely 50 years ago that black people in this country were (grudgingly) granted the freedom to simply walk down the street. Social change takes time and it ain't ever easy.

    In the meantime, here's a short list of things white people may want to avoid saying in colorful company:

    "What up, mah niggah!"
    "Whatchew lookin' at, boy?"
    "Bitch ain't nothin' but a nappy-headed ho."
    "Hey, that's really neat. I like hip-hop, too."
    "Oh, right. Like picking cotton was just SO hard to do."
    "Yeah, there's just too many niggers down there now."
    "Is it true you people can't get a sunburn?"
    "Wow! Really? I voted for the black guy, too."
    "What wine goes well with fried chicken and watermelon?"

  59. Amazing how the individuals with the biggest amount of feces pouring out of their mouth always manage to do it anonymously on the internet.

    If you really want your spiteful ignorance to grow and spread, you need to put a name behind it. Anonymous ramblings from ugly folk with low self esteem really don't carry much weight... not that it matters, you're all just utilizing the internet as an illusionary attempt at self relevance.

    As for the word itself...
    In today's society I have found that it isn't so much the word that gets people into trouble, as much as it is how the word is used. Being white the 'N' word is a big no no...however the few times I use it when quoting a Comedian or when singing along with Luda or a number of other artists, I've found that I don't get treated like I did anything wrong.

    I look it it like when dealing with police...
    You generally aren't considered guilty unless you look and act guilty...
    If you use the word in mixed company and you're demeanor gives the impression that you aren't ashamed to have used the word, you generally get a lot less flack than when using the word and then looking around guiltily to make sure no one of color heard it... :P

    A last note to Anonymous' BS attempt at relevancy...
    If you want to rant incoherently about misinformation you may find a good home at FOXnews...if that's too high an aspiration then I left a link to my Facebook...

  60. its just a word. No words can harm you. I say FUCK YOU to you does that hurt you? no. I call you a nigger does that hurt you? no. The only harm is in what you let these words do to you, and if you let them harm you then it is a fault in you, not the speaker. Everyone should be "allowed" to use the word nigger because that is how it loses its power. Blacks co-opting it just gives it even more power to offend when spoken by other races. Hip hop culture is on the right track because it gets white kids singing about their niggaz, thus robbing the word of the imaginary power to harm that it has had for so long. Get over it, people. Good words and bad words is sooooooo 1st grade.

  64. The word nigger started from older base words meaning the color black; nothing racist there, period. The word black people were called and should be offended by is niggard, look it up. And, to be fair for racist definitions, cracker came from the white, like crackers, whip cracking, neck with a rope cracking, uhm crackers; who called the niggers niggards. So shut up niggards.

    ReplyDelete
  65. To clarify the definition. The word Nigger derives from the word Negro which means black. Which also is a representation of death, grief, or sorrow. Negro derives from the Greek word Necro which means death. So,basically Black Americans were being condemned to a life of misery. And to all the ignorant people that have made rude and insensitive comments God bless your soul. God created us all and if He didn't who did? Use some common sense people.

  66. Only bitch-made cowards are willing to say nigger on the internet!!!!Walk around the hood saying that shit if you think this country truly belongs to you!!!!!The constitution was not intended for non whites and Abraham Lincoln used the abolition of slavery to gain political power. Lincoln believed that the slaves should be freed and colonized in the Bahamas, Cuba, Haiti, etc..He also stated that didn't believed in interracial marriages or social mixing. The only reason he allowed blacks to fight in the civil war is because the rebels were kickin' dat ass!!!And when he seen all those white and black dead bodies laying next to each other after the dust settled, he realized then that blacks should live freely among whites instead of the colonization of blacks. Lincoln was also a homosexual who had a relationship with his military commander. Some whites are more offended about the word "nigger" than blacks are because they can only type it on the internet. Blacks will say cracker to your face and wish a motherfucka would get mad about it!!!I love the word Nigga because it is funny to see how blacks can take lemons and make lemonade. and that lemonade is sweet to blacks, but bitter as hell to white folks!!!!LOL!!!

  67. First off, after reading the first few few replies to the topic...I stopped. The ignorance in most of the replies shines through. Who would actually debate the topic? If you were really pissed off that someone used the "Wik" as a reference....Why wouldn't you just find a better source to use in the so-called debate? That's all I'm saying on that.

    The reason I even found this site was to answer a question about the origin of the word. I'm a white guy and travel the entire year. I often hear all these racial slurs and for some reason today I was curious where half these slurs come from. The word "Nigger" I had always thought had something to do with Nigeria haha. I wanted to know exactly what is insulting about the word.

    People who use the word or term "Nigger" in any fashion now days probably have no clue about the history of the word. In my opinion, if you don't know shit about the word you are using... you are using it out of ignorance. Obviously I would not use the word nigger openly despite it's true meaning.. This is because the English language and the slang vocabulary we use has butchered the word. If it truly means black.... What are black people going to do when in a country that uses the word in many forms to describe them? In Puerto Rico they say Negro.

    Just my two cents.

  70. Its funny how anonymous that made the first comment memtioned President Obama which in no way had anything to do with this topic at all. Yes,he is considered black because the darker race takes over. But he is mixed therefore he is part of your race also. And for you to be on this site seem that you are concerned about it to even be on this site. And to make the comment about Obama it might have been you,your family member,friends that probally voted for him also. So i guess either you are your family member or friends that voted is dumb ass white people. For as another making the comment about black people need to get a job and get off of food stamps and take care our kids. Half of you dont take care of your kids. If your dumb ass visit these places you see a mixture of black,white,hispanics and other on food stamp and out of jobs. Especially how this economy is now.So to me all these dumb comments is stupid so calling blacks nigger must make your a nigger yourself(ignorant). Of course we shouldnt forget our past but learn and grow from it. And alot of these invention now was invited by black people. So next time you go to a traffic light if it turnes red, go, if it turns green, stop, if it turn yellow,speed up.So much time passed by and we dont know exactly where we came from are what race we would have been if we hadnt mixed. So no, i dont call no one a nigger and and no one black or white need not to call me one either. What you see on the news is not how ever black person act. These are usually in very poor neighborhood where there are less education and money. So if you think that ever black person act like that you are ignorant and if you are an american you will know that ever black person do not act like that,unless you are living in some backwood forest where your daddy is your uncle. And for saying blacks trying to be white bleaching your skin,and wearing fake hair first of all every hair weave is not straight and wavy nor did it came of the head of white people.And if you notice every black have different lengths of hair,and if you must know walk into sally's and see how much weave extension there are for white people. How about you stop trying to get a tan if you love your white skin so much and stop trying to get fuller lips and butt injections,stop trying to add the mix of our so called hip hop songs to sell your records. For as telling blacks go back to africa its all shades of africa. And if you notice american blacks features are very different from the ones in africa,watch the news and you will see. My grandmother is white, my dad is mix and my mom is half black and cherokee. So where do i need to go back too,hmmm seems like a got a lot of option. Writer of this article was just trying to get an understanding to the readers of the difference of meaning and origin of the word nigger,nigga. Everybody needs to wake up realize this is america and we going fall because we are worrying about the wrong things. It just crazy, now we have facts on what some white do else well. as some of you trying to make black people as negative and copycats.

  71. I was actually at church this morning just thumbing through the Bible. Just by accident I stopped in Acts. If you go to Acts 13:1, it mentions "Simeon the was called Niger." So being a curious person, I got online tonight to look and see if that couldve been the orgin of todays N word. According to what I have read the Latin word for Black is Niger. I am sure it became slang or whatever over the years. All the posts before this one were pretty funny. I do think next time a black person calls me a Cracker or Honkey I am gonna file a suit in court against them. LOL.

  73. African Americans are the only group of people who were dragged here against their will. To say things like "go back to Africa" just displays the stupidity that has dominated one side of this argument for years.

    I think it's hilarious and poetic justice that those who turned a descriptive word into a curse can no longer use it freely without consequence. And just out of curiosity, why does it bother you that some Blacks call themselves Nigger or Nigga? Since your parents taught you that you are superior to the Nigger, why do you need to say that word so badly? Why must you wallow in our filth with us, oh great white man?

    But all this nonsense aside, my joy is this: what goes around comes around. Your ancestors stole this land from the Indians, stole the labour from Africa and Asia, stole technologies from Europe and built a wonderful watering hole. So naturally, their children (your parents) got fat and lazy: The curse of the entitled and pampered.

    Now guess who's taking over this land? Everyone but the children of your ancestors. China owns more than 70% of US corporations, the best professionals and specialists in the US are Asian, Indian or African. The top schools are dominated by brainy foreigners (and a few idiots with daddy's money... I believe they are called legacies).

    The tables are turning fast, oh slave-driver. Keep venting your hatred and thumping your chest on your ignorance. I'll be that Nigger that hires and fires your children in a few years to come. LMAOL.

  74. Obviously, the vast majority of the ignorant ones post anonymously. No surprise there. But I simply want to make a correction.

    British thieves (who would rather be called colonists) named Africa's third largest river "The Niger". My people have always called it "Oya". Most Yorubas today speak English, maybe French as well as our native Yoruba so we have no confusions about the Brits and their childish way of re-naming everything they came upon as though no one else was there first.

    Nigeria DOES NOT mean land of blacks. You don't even need an education to realize this: Africa is a Continent with 52 countries and over 60 regions. It would be a little daft (even for the colonists at that time) to name one country out of so many Black countries "land of blacks".

    In addition, West Africans are generally lighter skinned than South Africans so if you were going to dub one nation "land of blacks' based on the intensity of skin color it would be the Zulu Empire.

  75. Wow.
    No one race is perfect or is lacking in faults throughout history, nor is any individual in life.
    The fact that so many people have such blind hatred for something such as slavery, that few of live generations have faced is a pathetic excuse for hatred and an ignorant outlet for anger.
    The African race is not the only race to be enslaved, those of Chinese race and those from the Southern American region were enslaved also by those of European and now American citizenship to construct railroads. Many of Jewish decent have been enslaved in their own homelands due to physicalities. As have many different African tribes within their own communities commiting genicide.
    If its not race, its financial status, physical attributes and stigmas, bloodlines, its fads and fashion, educational standing,all in all, hate, judgement and ignorance.

    I, myself am a melting pot composed of variations in mankind that makes me, like everyone else, a unique individual. There is no one quite like me, nor is anyone else exactly alike, even identical twins show genetic variances and variations in attitude and experiences.
    Whether it is a debate over a word, or a characteristic, no one person has the right to judge the other or to state an heir of rightness compared to others, because the honest fact is any judgement made about another is not a fact and should not be relevant. It is only when masses come together to bring this judgements intent to fruition that it becomes a wrong or unjust to our fellow man.
    It is humanity as a whole that is flawed. Not a race. Not a word. But the actions behind each persons judgements.
    I am not perfect. Nor is any race, origin or region. Throughout history the only consistent fact, is that we all make mistakes. The way we learn and grow from them is what will dictate OUR futures.

    I stumbled upon this site after a talk with a friend while we were listening to a rap song with the slur in it. I, never have considered it negatively and never thought the way it was used in the song was in a hateful way. I did know it was a slur used towards many people of darker skin, regardless of race. But growing u in todays generation ,never heard it used negatively...until she said she hated that word and told me about all the pain it had caused her because of the actions and intent behind it. Then I realized if such words exist that blur the lines such as "fag" like someone else stated above, why even bother to use them at all......? It is not like our vocabulary is not vast. If anyone uses such words it is to be selective and segregate and i realized after reading all of this, it doesnt matter where the word originated. The way people use these slurs as excuses for hate or segregation now is enough for me to not use them. Hopefully all reading this will take note....and wont take this as a fact or anti/pro side towards some debate but the simple experiences and sightings of a simple prson within humanity trying to ignite less segregation and more unity and thought within every action we take :)

  76. POEM BY Charles w. Chestnutt
    I'm "quite an intelligent nigger"
    As the words in our section go.--
    I live in the land where the rice
    And the cane and the cotton grow.--
    I'm quite an ambitious nigger,
    But, the Democrats now being in,
    I'm afraid I can't get elected,
    To the Legislature again.
    2--
    As I have no remarkable fondness,
    For handling the plow or the hoe,
    Boot-blacking or driving a carriage,
    Which we had to do not long ago--
    And having no great predilection,
    For living on bacon and greens,
    I'll adopt a respectable calling,
    And write for the magazines.
    3--
    I know that the country is somewhat
    Inclined to be down on the nigger;
    For Whittaker of West Point and Flipper,
    I confess have cut quite a poor figger
    The one seems rather a coward;
    The other--well even a good school,
    Can't make a brave man of a coward,
    Or make a wise man a fool.
    4--
    And it's right good American logic--
    Indeed, it's the general belief,
    When a nigger can't prove himself honest,
    He certainly must be a thief--
    A white man's regarded as honest,
    Until his rascality's shown;
    But a nigger, you know, is different
    As the white folks have always known.
    5--
    And since Whittaker cut his own ears,
    Or at least couldn't prove the contrary,
    That all niggers would do just the same,
    Is a very safe corollary;
    Since Flipper's accused of stealing,
    Or was careless in keeping accounts,
    Any nigger will steal or be careless--
    That's exactly to what it amounts.
    6--
    Down here, if a crime is committed,
    And the criminal cannot be found,
    Suspicion will rest on a nigger,
    If there's one in a mile around.
    And then, if the nigger[']s imprisoned,
    Whether guilty they dont' wait to see,
    They take him away from the gaoler,
    And swing him right up to a tree.
    7--
    A white man is tried by a jury,
    And with plenty of friends and red tape,
    And the best friend of all, ready money,
    Has at least a fair chance to escape.
    But the nigger, perforce, must be guilty,--
    Because--any nigger, in fact,
    Under similar circumstances,
    Would be capable of the act!
    8--
    And it matters not whether he's guilty
    Or nor, it is nothing but right,
    If he's likely to do any mischief,
    To hang him for fear that he might--
    And when white folks see anything clearly,
    In this particular light,
    They don't hesitate for a moment,
    To do what they think to be right.
    9--
    I'm quite an intelligent nigger,
    But such things I can't understand,
    When all men are free and equal;
    By the highest law of the land!
    I'm a very intelligent nigger,
    But I cannot exactly see,
    Why there's one set of laws for the white folks,
    And a different set for me.
    10--
    Perhaps some wise man of the white folks,
    Will make the mystery plain,
    Why justice and Christian charity,
    Are different for different men;--
    Why they set us aside in the churches,
    And even in the common schools,
    And in the insane asylums,
    They separate even the fools!
    11--
    And some intellects philosophic,
    Have taught that even in Heaven,
    A sort of kitchen department,
    To colored folks will be given.
    There's but one place they don't separate us,
    And why, I'm sure I can't tell,
    But no one has yet thought proper,
    To separate us in hell!
    Charles W. Chestnutt, was a biracial man.

  77. There are many derogatory words and why is nigger the only word that seems taboo? Blacks weren't the only slaves and it's time to move on now. People who caused harmed to others in the past are dead now and we are the future to make things right. A word is only a word unless you make a big deal over it. So I feel we shouldn't continuing making big deal over a word. It wasn't a bad word in the beginning of it's use, so let's get it back to where it used to be which is denoted for dark skinned people in general nothing more.

I am a black male that roots traces back to president Grant so I'm not African American I am American and feel that until we as black Americas will never get to where we need to be or realize the true meaning of the ("I have a dream speach") which we hear but don't comprehend because we are to focus on the word nigger,white robes and hoods and the rebel flag that we as a people are put here to live and love each other not to tare each other down but build each other up love thy neighbor no matter what his or her color or creed that was the message Dr. King wanted to get and that dream has yet to be realize even almost 50 years later even the people he was trying to get equity for.

  83. In Addition the comment below, I would just like to add this word is derived from ignorance. Those that created and gave it to the people of color from the continent of Africa were as evil as they were ignorant (and those that use the word in any context in reference of identifying another Human are Ignorant). Read the Dread Scott Decision (WHY?). Read Roget and the Social Contract (what does it imply)? Understand the verdict in the movie Amistad, which those African never gave up their rights to be free. They killed their oppressors in order to not be slaves. They were not subject to the laws of the US (WHY?)The bottom line is the ability to read comprehend think and solve problems is a gift use it wisely and be part of the solution always. Those that are ignorant educate them. If they can't comprehend or refuse to change THEN THEY CAN JOIN THE MASSES AND REMAIN PART OF THE WALKING DEAD. / Then they are dead already and move on and surround yourself with education rationally open minded individuals that are able to expand your thoughts and kill you mind to the spiritually dead and ignorant people of this word whatever ethnicity they are. THIS IS ONE EDUCATED BLACK MAN OPINON WHO WILL NEVER SPEAK THE OBSCENITY OF THE WORD. WHEN I HEAR THE WORD SPOKEN BY ANY PERSON, I THINK. I THEN CHOOSE. IF I WISH TO EDUCATE THAT IGNORANT PERSON THEN I DO. IT IS ALSO MY CHOICE TO ALLOW THAT PERSON TO REMAIN IGNORANT. I USUALLY, CHOOSE MY BATTLES WISELY AND ALLOW THE DEAD TO REMAIN DEAD UNLESS THERE MIND IS YOUNG ENOUGH TO ACCEPT WISEDOM AND KNOWLEDGE. I ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO THE SAME. AS FOR ME I KEEP IT BLACK, EDUCATED, AND BEAUTIFUL AND I KEEP IT MOVING. MAY EACH ONE TEACH ONE, I'M OUT!!!!!!!!

    DAMN... IT REALLY SHOWS THAT THE WORD NIGGER, NIGGA, NIGGAH IS REALLY A DEROGATORY WORD. IT AMAZES ME THAT YOU WOULD GET SO UPSET AT THE FACT A CULTURE OF PEOPLE WOULD TRY TO SHINE LIGHT ON A WORD THAT HAS BEEN A NASTY STIGMA FOR A GROUP OF PEOPLE FOR SO LONG. I AGREE THAT IT SHOULD BE SEEN AS JUST A WORD BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT THE PEOPLE WHO IMPLEMENTED THE WORD ONLY DEMEANED US BECAUSE OF THEIR OWN INSECURITIES AND FEELING OF INFERIORITY SO WHEN YOU SAY THAT, I GIVE YOU CREDIT FOR ACKNOWLEDGING YOUR PEOPLE AND THEIR OWN IGNORANCE AND FREE USE OF THE WORD NIGGER. YOU ARE PROBABLY A WHITE COAT WEARING MONKEY YOURSELF. AND UNFORTUNATELY FOR YOU SLAVERY IS OVER SO YOUR ONLY PLATFORM FOR THE USE OF THIS WORD IS THROUGH THIS SITE. I AM BEING VERY IGNORANT AT THIS TIME TO EVEN RESPOND TO YOUR COMMENT. AND WHEN YOU SAY BLACK PEOPLE DID WHAT THEY DO BEST "STOLE THE WORD"... HA,HA,HA. YOU AND YOUR RACIST ANCESTORS KNOW THAT EVERYTHING THAT THIS COUNTRY WAS BUILT ON, WAS FROM THE BLOOD AND SWEAT OF BLACKS. BECAUSE YOU AND YOUR KIND WAS TO LAZY AND TOO DAMN STUPID TO EVEN COMPREHEND THE FIRST PART OF BEAUTIFYING GOD'S LAND. BLACKS TAUGHT YA'LL NIGGA'S HOW SING, DANCE, PLAY BALL, THEY EVEN BREAST FED YOUR RED BABIES. SO COME HARDER THEN THAT. AS FOR WIKIPEDIA I AGREE THAT PEOPLE WITH DEGREES POST AND UPDATE INFORMATION FREQUENTLY, HOWEVER OUR LAST PRESIDENT HAD A "DEGREE" AND HE PASSED WITH A C AVERAGE...SO HE PROVED: OPINIONS ARE LIKE BUTTHOLES, EVERYONE HAS THEM. PRESIDENT OBAMA WINNING OFFICE SHOWS THAT THERE IS AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN A HIGHER POWER IN CHARGE. WHEN HE WON OFFICE "NIGGA,NIGGER" IS NOT AS POWERFUL AS IT HAD BEEN BEFORE. AND YOUR COMMENT THAT IT IS JUST A WORD IS RIGHT BECAUSE HE THOUGHT OF HIMSELF TO BE GREATER THEN THE WORD AND WHAT IT MEANT FOR SO LONG. I GUESS YOU CAN LABEL YOUR PEOPLE THAT VOTED AND HELPED TO GET A GREAT MAN IN OFFICE AS "NIGGER LOVERS" CAUSE THEY LOVED THEM SO OBAMA! YES WE CAN!FOR U STAY IGNORANT ,IT KEEPS THE WORLD MOVING... GOD BLESS.

  84. I have an ideal. Why don't you black folks get together and vote on a name that you would like to be called? You complained about being called nigger,or african american or colored. It seems that no white person knows what the fuck to call you. I do know one thing is for sure,and that is you blacks hate whites. We don't give a shit what you call us because we know it is from all the hate you have for the whites. I truly believe that black people hate themselves for being the way they are. When you say that you are proud to be a black person,then you should be abel to say that it doesn't offend you to be called a nigger. Hell, us whites don't care if you call us crackers or whity,or red necks or white trash. It does't mean shit to us, because we are white and we are proud to be white. So what the fuck is your real problem? I don'think you even know. I do know that if you don't stop this racist bullshit hate for all whites, soon there will be a war between us and you blacks will be eradicated quicker then you think. Just like the American Indian OH, yes there would be blood from both sides buy most of it will be yours. I don't think any white person would give a shit about your erradication.No white person owes you a fucking thing. You weren't a slave and I don't care what the hell your great great grandfather was.You did not suffer anything and no white person today is responsible for your problems. NOW, if you want a war , then shit or get off the pot. All whites will more then welcome your war. SO, either we go to war or shut the fuck up and become a true American.

  86. What’s In A Name?
    Copyright by Victoria Rowels ©1983, 2011
    What’s in a name? The young student asked.
    And why is the future connected to the past?
    And why does that word that starts with a “N”,
    Incite violence in the most peaceful of men?
    The teacher looked perplexed and didn’t know where to begin,
    To explain that word that starts with a “N”.
    The dictionary seemed like a good place to start,
    But it didn’t even touch upon the most important part.
    How can a volume designed to define,
    Words and phrases formed in the mind,
    Give meaning to and take apart,
    A concept of hate formed in the heart:
    Of men who deny the humanity,
    Of darker hued people who look like me.
    Of men who believe that their lack of melanin,
    Makes them pure and incapable of sin.
    Of men who prayed and held Bibles in their hand,
    While they raped and pillaged humanity’s motherland.
    Of men who built empires, fortunes and fame,
    By promoting a concept we mistakenly call: “a name”.
    What’s in a name? The teacher asked.
    And why is the future connected to the past?
    And why does that word that starts with a “ N”.
    Incite violence in the most peaceful of men?
    The student tried to answer but he was a little confused.
    So he stopped in mid-sentence and asked to be excused.
    The teacher asked the student why he suddenly had to go.
    At first the student looked down and said: “I don’t know”.
    Then the student decided to reveal his newly made plans,
    To go and study the history of all hue-mans.
    What’s in a name?

  87. Since the desegregation years, during which I was a student in public school, there was significant physical threat to the well being of white students. It was like a plague was unleashed upon us. I say this as historical fact and there were reasons that violent behavior was so prevelent. Fortunately with the passage of time equality has become closer to reality. too white children have become less interested in intellectual pursuits and significantly more violent themselves so we have not yet but approaching equilibrium. Sad commentary but my view.

  89. Its been rumored that napleon commanded his soldiers to destroy the nose on the sphinx due to its african appearance. There is without a doubt a large cultural difference between different races. The fear of those differences gives birth to racism. Everyone is a little racist... that started as a joke by some comedian I heard once... but its very true. We are hard wired to stereotype people based on race, religion, sexual orientation...etc, but we shouldn't.

    It has also been said that the word "nigger"means ignorant person. I am yet to find a dictionary from any time period to back that up. I have always seen, black person(in older versions), and derogatory term for black people(in more recent). Now, I am denying the statement that blacks in america historically have been ignorant. They have, ignorant about their heritage, ignorant about the white man, the language, customs... purposely kept from proper education to keep them ignorant.

    The racist white majority needed blacks, so they could have something to mistreat and look down on and feel better than. Its not right but I get it I guess. A lack of confidence and pride in who you are would require a scapegoat of sorts. But things are much different now. Blacks have oppourtunities they have never had. But we still live in a country controlled by the white man.

    It would benefit black america not to make excuses for failures, but many of the excuses are valid. There still is and probably will forever be discrimination of some sort at some level toward every group of individuals that have something in common. If you ask me, there are bigger things to worry about and debate than our differences. How boring would the world be if we all looked the same? We all bleed red brother. We all share a common ancestry.

    The word nigga, derived from the word nigger, which derived from negro, it from negra, it from nega, which means black and was used to describe a race of people, more specifically a group of royalty which ruled africa prior to european invasions.

    "Go back to africa" Said the white man to the black man who is freinds with the red man that told the white man..."go back to europe". Ha.

    Ignorance has many colors. Black is the absence thereof.

    I use the word nigga. Blacks have become caretakers of the word. It belongs to them. Example: say I'm talking to you about my wife whom I just had an argument with, and I say "man she is such a bitch." Now that would be completely inappropriate for you to say. Its my wife, not yours. We are married to the word. Whites used to own niggas. Not anymore. Not even the word. Its used to claim independance.

    My nigga.

    Can i just say the reason you can't just come up with a name to call black or white people is because it can be used in a racist way you don't have to say nigger to be racist. You can just say black, dark anything to describe a black persons appearance and switch it negatively same for all other races. another thing i would like to say is no matter what, sadly this will never end because there will always be people who are raised to view other races in a negative way or grow up in a racist environment. its not enough to blame one side and say they need to change both sides need to change and no one will change as long as people are being ignorant and racist there is no way to stop racism and it will always be on this earth its just the way it is.

    If i've said anything wrong don't attack me but correct me act civilised

  100. THE WORD "N-G-R" MEANS "GOD" IN ANCIENT EGYPTIAN

    The father of the "n" word was the word used by the ancient Egyptians for "God." That word was "N-g-r" and as one can see, there are no vowels in this word. In the ancient African and even the present African languages (the Afro-Asiatic linguistic family) vowels such as "a,e,i,o,u" are not found in many translations, particularly of ancient Hebrew and Egyptian languages.

    In the translation of ancient Egyptian and Hebrew (which is heavily influenced by Egyptian), one will not always find vowels, therefore, very few people will realize that the word for God, which is "N-g-r" pronounced "en-ger" was the Egyptian word for God. In fact, the Egyptian word for "nature," is also the word used for God. That word is "ntyr," (pronounced net-jer." Now prounce the word "nigg.." and the word "net-jer," and one sees the clear connection.



    I wonder why (the white readers) even care about the subject at all. Obviously you looked it up too. I think its because your trying to steal our knowledge, Hmm,? You do know that knowledge doesen't just goes away right. I mean people do have grand parents and their grand parents had parents and their parents had parents sooo clearly that knowledge was passed down. Why do you care about our history White-eee's? Oh thats right because you have none of your own, you have nothing, you were cursed and cast out of heaven. so naturally you hate us because you and your people and there peoples people weren't made in his image. OH WELL TO BAD SO SAD!!!!



    TO ALL MY PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DECENT:

    THEY ONLY HATE IT BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT IT!!

    CONTINUE TO SEEK KNOWLEDGE OUR KNOWLEDGE!!!

    THEY CAN NOT TAKE IT ONCE YOU KNOW IT!!!

  107. Anyway, The word Nigger means Black God for you uneducated people out there. Not to knock who posted this but it's the truth and i'll like to thank all you honkies and crackers for saying and calling me a Black God LOL. you see,

    The ancient Egyptians called their Pharaohs "N-G-R" (Net-ger) because the Egyptian Pharaoh was seen as a representation of the sun and the Sun God. The original Pharaohs who were pure Black Africans SAW BLACK SKIN AS SACRED AND A DIRECT BLESSING FROM THE SUN GOD, ATEN. In fact Blackness and black skin became associated with God and the sun.BLACK PEOPLE WERE POWERFUL, CULTURALLY ADVANCED, MILITARILY SUPERIOR, BLACK/DARK BROWN IN COMPLEXION, STRONG STATURE, TALL AND DESCRIBED AS A "HANDSOME" RACE , (SEE HERODOTUS, "THE HISTORIES,DESCRIPTIONS OF "ETHIOPIANS" OF AFRICA AND SOUTH INDIA).
    The English colonialists and slave entity borrowed the term "Negro" from the Spanish. The term for Black people in England before Shakespeare was "Moor" or "Black-a-Moor." The English slave owners degraded and defiled the entire name by turning the Negro into a slave and turning the original term "Ned-ger" or "God" into the racist term "Nigger." One can say that they have insulted the sacred name for "God" and have oppressed the original people created by God. This phenomena is due to their own sense of inferiority.

    So this is the true story and origins of the "N" word. NEVER FORGET THAT THE WORD "NIGGER" CAME FROM THE KHEMITE/EGYPTIAN TERM FOR "GOD" AND AND THAT WORD IS "N-G-R" OR "NET-GER."iN CONCLUSION, IT IS TIME THAT NEGROES, PAN-NEGROES (PAN-AFRICANS,MELANESIAN NEGROIDS, INDO-NEGROIDS, NEGRO-AUSTRALOIDS) AND BLACKS WORLD WIDE START BELIEVING THAT THE NEGRO IS OF THE GOD HEAD AND SHOULD START BELIEVING IT, HAVING SELF-CONFIDENCE, BELIEF IN SELF AND IN ABILITY. IT IS TIME TO REVIVE AND RETURN TO BLACK/NEGRO RELIGIONS THAT HELP DEVELOP THE MIND, BODY, SOUL, SPIRIT AND THE BELIEF IN SELF, RATHER THAN IN ANOTHER PEOPLE'S SHRINES, HOLY BOOKS, HOLY LANDS AND GODS OR ANY RELIGIONS THAT PREACH OF BLACKS BEING "CURSED" OR PREACH"BROTHERHOOD" ON ONE SIDE OF THEIR FACES WHILE COMMITTING ETHNIC CLEANSING, SANCTIFIED RACISM AND GENOCIDE ON BLACKS

Personally I think the reason some black ppl use the word nigga, is to let these crac....I'm srry , white ppl know that we haven't forgot what their ancestors did to ours, and let them know that the niggas of the 21st century ain't nothing like the black ppl of the 20th and 19th century, we ain't none of Martin luther king we will crack yo fuckin head wide open, rush you to the hospital, let the doctors heal you, wait fa you to get out, and crack yo muthfuckin head open again........excuse my French

  114. Niggers are beasts without souls. You filthy jiggaboos are nothing but walking and talking monkeys. The average niggers I.Q is 71....65 is clinically retarded...so more often than not you dumb niggers are borderline retarded. Thats why 1 in 3 niggers are either on probation, parole or in prison. You yard apes are a disease to the United States and need to get back to that shithole country africa where you belong. Look at africa...among the niggers there is still canabalism...they live in huts made of their own feces, hang severed body parts of albinos in their homes for good luck...and 66% of the nigger african men have raped a woman in thwir lifetime. A nobel prize winning Scientist (2010...not 1700's) said niggers are genetically less evolved and incapible of cognitive thought....explainung their tendency to live lives of crime and wanton sex. Because of political correctness he was silenced and outcasted but he told the truth. Niggers are outdated farm equipment who serve no purpose now but instead pollute and taint this world with its twisted false bravado, ignorantlly proud sociopathic culture. A perverse people who have been the bane of this earth and a laughingstock among all the other more advanced races.

  117. For one when president Lincoln passed the bill to let the slaves go he ment to ship all the black ppl back to their homes in africa but Lincoln was assassinated...if Lincoln gets assasinated for letting slaves go...then why hasn't somebody assasinated Obama for running our country into more shit than it already is. Food stamps increased 33%, unemployment had increased 25%, reposesions have increased 15% and murders have increased 55% ugh y cnt u jiggaboos just straighten up? And when I say jiggaboos I'm talkin about the niggers who kill random ppl. I live in most dangerous state. And I cnt walk down my city streets without seeing a nigger pull a gun out. Talk shit. Fight people. Run from cops. Or rob places. It's sad. All u niggers do is get pregnant keep half the kids other kids are aborted, beat ur baby MOMAS, sell drugs and do drive by. Oh and on top of tht everyday tht I go to work, I'm paying for your lifestyle as long as trying to pay for my own. Instead of paying for somebody who actually needs govermental funds. Like fuck someone in a town near me got shot for sending out a petion to increase the police department to lower crime rates. He was shot ten times at 9pm in the middle of an alley. Like Wtf is tht? Sounds like a bunch of PORCH MONKEYS to me!!!!!

    White girl out!!!! :)

  119. From The Native American (ME);

    America I am glad for thee
    Even for cold timid souls
    Here I lean more about me
    Lord make bold strong holds
    so this land grows green


    Below is one of my favorites. God bless you all. May God bring truth a peace to hating hearts.

    One Being Brought From Africa To America

    'TWAS mercy brought me from my Pagan land,
    Taught my benighted soul to understand
    That there's a God, that there's a Saviour too:
    Once I redemption neither sought now knew,
    Some view our sable race with scornful eye,
    'Their colour is a diabolic die.'
    Remember, Christians, Negroes, black as Cain,
    May be refin'd, and join th' angelic train.


    Phillis Wheatley

  120. wow,you must be a whigger. a white nigger. because what i just read was the most ignorant statement that i have ever heard and i have heard a few. speaking for the black people that feel that we single-handed put obama in office, we really don't give a shit how and who we are just glad to have the opportunity to show racist white hillbilly poor trash crackers like youself that even though you thought that it would never happen there is actually a black man in the whitehouse (and he's not a servant)

  121. oh my god did you just tell someone to growup with all the racial references you used in you comments. africa sucks, it's this, it's that,
    why would blacks want to go back there. let me enlighten you sweetheart some blacks did not come from africa, born and raised right the fuck here in the USA. never been there, don't know anyone there, can't go back to somewhere i've never been and you ignorant white bitches keep saying that, reading my history books as i recall it was your race that brought blacks to america,in chaines ( somewhere you said you discovered that other people already stayed at, by the way i need to discover your car or your house it doesn't matter that you already own and live in it i can discover it like you did america)funny how once blacks where done working for free and being abused for nothing white people started talking about going back somewhere.and that little sligh remark about doing what we do best (stealing) you might want to check your history because the white race can not go anywhere on the plant and say that the brought harmony and proserity as a matter of FACT every place they have been they have rape, murder,stealing property(land) why the very land that whites want us to leave was founded by criminals i'm sure that you are well versed in your history seeing that it's taught in every school as a core subject but you need to dig deeper you may find that you should think about the dirt that your race has done before talking about another.and finally as far as obama is concern i dont care if he's picking his nose all day he could never do the damage that the person who came before him has. he started a war that flowed over onto american soil. and the comment about him being just a man so was all of the presidents but one man can do wonders or cause great harm given enough power.

  123. when is white history month all year long has been always will be. at one point the white history wouldn't even allow blacks to read, write, learning was illegal for us.and as far as the other races that migrated here there is a difference in coming voluntary and being brought in chains. you saved your pennies and paid your way here we were thrown in the belly of a boat and murdered if we didn't come. is that the white history you need a month for

  124. I dont see the big issue with Obama being President, just because hes black I guess thats an issue! Since most of you guys want to be technical the "white men" has basically belittled the "black people" for so long to where as you have litte "white kids" being racist from birth, say what you want but being racist is a TAUGHT lesson....your not born with that. SO when the black folks get a litte chance to shine the whites feel the need to belitte us since its been being done for so long. Im far from rasict, infact Im married to a white man and both sides of our families get along really well....its just that certain people dont like to see the next person shine no matter what color he or she may be. I just believe its time out for all of this mess. So many great people(black and white)has died trying to fight for blacks and whites to be equal but we(the newer generation)are so stuck on events from the past until we cant move on with our futures! I LOVE people of all race and I believe that I will be a fool if I allow somebodys skin color determine what I will do in my life and If I will be sucessful!

  125. I'm a 33 yr. old African American male who has had a history of using this hateful word throughout most my life and until recently was blind to the senselessness of it. Why must I disrespest my ancestors who not only died fighting for equality but built the foundation we know as America. Blacks use the term NIGGA as endearment! We must be out our damn mind, how easy it is to substitute. How can we be so upset with other ethnicities using it if we glorify its use. Makes us hypocrites don't it? 2Pac tried to make light of it when he used it as a acronym-Never Ignorant Getting Goals Accomplished, but are we really? It's time we do away with the NIGGA and start thinking critically!
