Now that the New York City Council has "symbolically" banned the "N-word," I'd like to defend the word's right to exist. The word "nigger," like all words, is simply an instrument with which to convey ideas. No word is inherently evil. In fact, black artists have been putting the word to righteous use for years.
The history of the word nigger is often traced to the Latin word niger, meaning Black. In early modern French, niger became negre and, later, negress Black woman was unmistakably a part of language history. One can compare to negre the derogatory nigger and earlier English substitutes such as negar, neegar, neger, and niggor that developed into its lexico-semantic true version in English. It is probable that nigger is a phonetic spelling of the White Southern mispronunciation of Negro.
