The word "Nigga". (Note, "a" not "er").
"Nigga" is a word derived from the word "ni**er", originally a racial slur from back in the slavery days. And still used as a racial slur today, however the word "Nigga" is now becoming a common term in todays society, used by all colors. Brought to light in the late 80's and early 90's via "Gangsta Rap", it was used a noun used to describe both good and bad people. IE;
"Eazy Mutha f*ckn E, A real nigga, born and raised in Mutha f*ckin' Compton, This ones dedicated to you busta ass niggaz"
To begin with, it was a term only socially acceptably used within the African American community, however over the previous few years it has became a lot "looser" in society, and has become an accepted word since the world has become a more "interracial"(Most of you will recognize this word from porn) place.
So the question is, do you feel that the racial side of "Nigga" has been nullified through social acceptance and common use? Mostly via movies and music.
