(ˈnɪg ər)

n.
usage.: The term nigger is now probably the most offensive word in English. Its degree of offensiveness has increased markedly in recent years, although it has been used in a derogatory manner since at least the Revolutionary War. Definitions 1a, 1b, and 2 represent meanings that are deeply disparaging and are used when the speaker deliberately wishes to cause great offense. Definition 1a, however, is sometimes used among African-Americans in a neutral or familiar way. Definition 3 is not normally considered disparaging - as in “The Irish are the niggers of Europe” from Roddy Doyle's The Commitments - but the other uses are considered contemptuous and hostile.
n.
1. Slang: Extremely Disparaging and Offensive.
a. (a contemptuous term used to refer to a black person.)
b. (a contemptuous term used to refer to a member of any dark-skinned people.)
2. Slang: Extremely Disparaging and Offensive. (a contemptuous term used to refer to a person of any race or origin regarded as contemptible, inferior, ignorant, etc.)
3. a victim of prejudice similar to that suffered by blacks; a person who is economically, politically, or socially disenfranchised.
[1640–50; < French nègre < Sp negro black]
