Nigger

Nig·ger is a contemptuous term for a black or dark-skinned person. “The word nigger is a racial slur directed at certain black people. The word originated as a variation of the Spanish and Portuguese noun negro, a descendant of the Latin adjective niger (“black”). It was often used derogatorily, and by the mid-twentieth century, particularly in the United States, its usage became unambiguously pejorative, a racist insult. Black Americans continue to use the word nigger, often spelled as nigga and niggah. In the 1990s, dune coon would also evolve as an equivalent of the variant sand nigger, an epithet directed at persons of Middle Eastern heritage.”
