Nigger - Nigga
We took the word and made it our own is what a lot of people say. People of other colors are frowned upon for saying it. Only black folks can use the word Nigga. To me it's like saying that only blacks can call each other ignorant. So what am I saying? I'm saying I don't want ANYONE calling me ignorant. I have a name, address me by it. I just think there is a ton of ignorance in changing some letters and believing that this gives power or makes things okay.
I used the word nigga a lot until I heard Richard Pryor talk about why he wouldn't use the word anymore.
( Http://yeyeolade.wordpress.com/2007/04/27/black-is-beautiful/ ) I understand what some people say about the word nigga, using it is takes the power out of nigger. Some say it is slang for saying hello to a black person. I can only speak for me and say that I don't want to use it.
