During slavery slaves were sold to the americans by
portuguese slave traders.
The americans were buying ,"Ne-gros", which is spanish for black, the slaves owners coined the term, "Nigger"
trying to say, "Ne-gro", "Black".
It did not start out as a derogatory term, it became
that after slavery to the civil rights movment and today. Blacks today say it means, "A low life person" with that anyone can be a nigger, this comes from a lack of research. Many blacks call themselves nigger, why ? I don't know, but it just means, "BLACK".
