    For me it honestly depends on the context. If it's an actual insult directed to a black person then it's bad, but otherwise it seems to have evolved into non offensive slang.

    I was listening to Erika Badu in the car the other day and she said "Nigga" referring to her man, guy, or dude...etc. My dad didnt like it whatsoever...he is part black, grew up in a time when racism was pretty extreme (the 50's & 60's).

    I dont mind "nigga" if its being used in a pop culture, hip hop way. But if you say "Nigger" with an er' i find it to be reallllllly offensive. Dont ever use it to insult some one, thats a really low blow. Using that word will only make you look like a total asshole.

    I don't use it, and I although I could care less if other people do, I do wish it'd be one of those words simply lost to time. No one bites their thumbs at people anymore, unless it's referencing Romeo and Juliet.. I wish this word would disappear in a similar manner.

    Some words should be archived. This word belongs with "information superhighway".

    words are just words. the intention is what counts.

You have to be your own teacher and your own disciple. You have to question everything that man has accepted as valuable, as necessary."

    Ah, interesting. Here the using the word black to describe someone with a brownish complexion is considered pretty rude now. To be honest i rarely have any occaision to refer to skin colour at all but you know no-one is actually black, same way as no-one is actually white so umm

    I read a stat that London's population of ethnic minorities is around 29% while a great chunk more are British-but third or fourth generation immigrants. It's so mixed here that referring to skin tone is pretty pointless, you'd need a colour swatch.

    So anyway back to the topic,
    nigga, nigger both seem pretty offensive to me, much like honkie, wop, paki etc
    They are all pretty bad form.
    I don't think the words are necessary but i do think that they should be de-sensitised, made less taboo.
    Anyway thats my tuppence.

    I've rarely ever heard my (black) friends use the word "Nigger," but damn my
    friend John says "Bro," a lot, and it confuses the hell out of me because he
    calls his brother AND his friends "Bro". That's when I can shout "Bro this, bro
    that. Nigger/dude, make up your mind!" and in return they go "Don't make us
    go ebonics on your ass," make jokes, laugh, and dizz me for thirty minutes in
    a casual way. John's brother says I'm defragmented And these guys
    are New Yorkers, so you know the rest of the world can put up with it if
    these guys can. I mean, if you can't talk / joke openly about shit like that
    every now and then... then ugh... what a difficult world you must be living
    in. You won't see my friends crying about it, and you won't see them disliking
    me for joking around with it because they know I mean no harm and I'm just
    up for some laughs. I joke a lot about white people too. Fat people. Skinny
    people. Gays. Anti-Gays. You name it. I'll joke about EVERYTHING. So you
    can sit on my middle finger and twirl if you don't like it

    As a middle-aged white male, I'm culturally not allowed to use that word. I never do, and never talk about it except to make this statement.

    It's basically street language, and mostly younger culture centered on the rap world, and in that context, its use would be considered in confianza.
    Still, others won't understand this, and it gives a possible "appearance of evil".
