If you're uncomfortable singing it because of the origin of the word then don't. And if you're in public just be mindful and respectful of the people around you. Most black people won't say anything if you sing or rap lyrics with the word nigga in it but believe me they will look at you sideways. context is key and a nigga is a very real thing in existence (an ignorant individual) and black Americans have been so conditioned under slavery and post slavery to believe that they wasn't shut that it is normal to use the word in everyday conversation. I am black and the word is still very negative to me and when I do use it it is always in a negative sense. I'm trying to stop using it period but it is difficult with how ingrained in the culture it is.1

They can but only if they say "no racist" at the end.3
