The History of the word Nigger goes much deeper than you know.  These days, the word is associated with Indigenous Negroes, and we’ve come to embrace it as our own.  But before Nigger was casts on Negro Indians, it was associated with Europeans, particularly those of English, and Scotch-Irish descent.  What isn’t known, however, is the N-word origin is European; it was a word that was created for them first and foremost, going back to their Troglodyte caveman beginnings.  Join me and guest Rick Moon as we discuss the history of the N-word and how we must give it back to who it was intended for.
