LOL OK MAYBE NOT NIGGER BUT THE WHITE MAN ACTUALLY GOT THE WORD NIGGER FROM 'NIGER' WHICH MEANS BLACK. SIMEON WAS SO BLACK, HE WAS CALLED SIMEON THE NIGER

ACTS 13 VS 1 Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.

HERE IS ANOTHER INTERPRETATION FROM ANOTHER BIBLE NEW LIVING TRANSLATION

ACTS 13 VS 1 Among the prophets and teachers of the church at Antioch of Syria were Barnabas, Simeon (called "the black man" ), Lucius (from Cyrene), Manaen (the childhood companion of King Herod Antipas), and Saul.

SO BASICALLY THE WORD IS NOT MEANT TO BE OFFENSIVE. DUNNO HOW FURTHER DOWN THE LINE, THE EDOMITES MADE IT A DEROGATORY WORD.

Be careful bro. One single alphabet can change something. It is Niger not Nigger. Maybe you can say that is where Nigeria was gotten from, lol.
