TAMMY,

THE PHRASE "NIGGER RIG" REFERS TO AN AUTOMOBILE PUT TOGETHER WITH MAKE-SHIFT PARTS, LIKE USING A COAT HANGER TO HOLD UP A MUFFLER. IT ALSO REFERS TO A STEREO-TYPE CAR, SUCH AS A CADILLAC, THAT MIGHT INDICATE IT IS OWNED BY A BLACK PERSON BECAUSE OF THE WAY IT IS DECORATED: I.E. FUR DASH, FUR STEERING WHEEL, CONTINENTAL TIRE KIT, IN OTHER WORDS, A "PIMP" CAR. IT'S ANOTHER WAY THE WHITE MAN HAS TO DEMEAN THE BLACK MAN!
