No, no no no NO.
It sure as hell is NOT OKAY.
If you are not black don’t say it.
“nigga” and “nigger” are the same word if you’re not black.
It will never be okay, you cannot reclaim a slur that was not directed at your people.

why the fuck can’t people wrap their heads around this shit? it’s like these anons are tryin to get folks’ pressure up.
"Nigga and nigger are the same word if you’re not black."
Brb laughing forever.
They’re actually serious.
did you know that while working in beijing my friend came to realize that they use “niga” in conversation like we use “um”
so let me get this straight…
a black person can refer to me as “cracker” which is short for “whip-cracker” as in one who cracks a whip over slaves, and there’s no outcry for falsely referring to me as a moral criminal guilty of actual slavery.
but when a white person calls a black person “nigger” which is slang for “nigerian” which is a freaking nationality, with no actual berating denotation in the first place… suddenly, MORAL OUTRAGE BLARGABLARGABLARGA!!!
i’m going to call people what i want to call them. and allow everyone else the same freedom to call whoever they want, whatever they want.
i’m kind of egalitarian that way.
Your ignorance is unbecoming, you uneducated swine. Your “egalitarian” thinking is actually racist, but I’m sure you know and I’m sure you do not care.
Are you so daft to think that nigger is the shortened word for Nigeria? I’m actually laughing at your attempt to justify calling a black person nigger by spewing that utter bullshit. The word nigger has never been shortened from anything. “Nigger” is it’s own word used to dehumanize an entire people. With that being said, NOT EVERY BLACK PERSON IS FROM NIGERIA.
I would ask ‘where is your humanity?’, but you have none.
White people making up lies and justifications for racism never has and never will surprise me.
Your people are demonic.
Antisj and co do love pretending like the n word isn’t a racial slur with a horrible history, but they love whining about cracker.
Talking about how it’s slang for nigerian as if its a harmless ass word but they don’t have no sources to support that shit.
anti-sj who call themselves egalitarians just because they only read the word in the dictionary are the worse when they ain’t know jack shit about what they’re talking about.
Nigger, short for Nigerian…I had no idea.
Insert side eye
I’m Nigerian the short form for Nigeria is “Naij/Naija” that’s the biggest lie I’ve ever heard I’m actually cackling at how ridiculous this is. Did this person think there are no Nigerians on tumblr or what??
There are literally tears streaming out of my eyes. That person really said ‘nigger is short for Nigerian’, my GOD.
How can you try to say ‘cracker’ is offensive but ‘nigger’ isn’t. I’m done.
