The n-word (that is so stupid!) is nigg*r. It is a racial epithet used primarily against African Americans (though probably used through-out the English speaking world), and carries with it connotations of ignorance and stupidity. It is connected to racial violence and oppression in the USA, especially before and during the civil rights movement. Today it is considerred extremely offensive if utterred by a white person, but is used as common slang in urban settings with a slight spelling modification to mean brother or friend - nig*a. Hope this helps! PS the first * is an e and the second is a g - mylot's terms of use forbid both of these words!
