Ok.... FIRST OFF. IM NOT RASICT. IM JUST WONDERING...SO PLEASE, THIS ISNT AN OPINION FOR YOU TO BASH ME, ITS A THOUGHT.....
Ok, so Im a white girl, and I have had several black friends throughout my life....
My hubby once said to me "What a nigger" about a black person...(doing something rude)
Uh what? But he tells me, and this is TRUE, "nigger" means ignorant. Its not just slang.
And true, there are different groups of races.
Im sure as a white person, the "unclassy" type would be "cracker" right? I dunno...you tell me what white ignorant slang is...
So, what makes a "nigger", or a "cracker" or a "spik" or a "chink" or a "kike"....what have you? What makes a person that "sterotype?"
As you can see, this isnt an opinion of MINE, but this is obviously open for discussion...
Have at it!

im too lazy to explain the whole of it...so heres the simple run down.
historically, it started as the word for any Black person (first just slaves, then free too) as it is very close to the Spanish & French words for the color black. it was faster & easier than saying Negro. by the Revelutionary War it started to be used by slave masters as a derogatory term for stupid (not ignorant, but flat out dumb) and inferior. there's a great scene in the movie Glory where Morgan Freeman's character explains the usage of the word to Denzel Washington's character (awesome movie BTW).
its also used to mean any culture that has been put down by another culture or country OR the "stupid" ppl of a country. one popular example: the Irish are the n*****s of the UK (another person's example not mine! im Irish so please dont hate me!).
