Who uses nibba?

While some of its users may try to claim otherwise, nibba is offensive, even if altered in spelling, because it’s based on the N-word, an extremely painful slur.

Black users of nibba, however, may represent the only exception, given the reclamation of nigga in some Black communities.

Some white people use nibba online to slur Black people but avoid censors and moderators. Some white people use nibba as some Black speakers use nigga, a term of address to friends and familiars. Yet others use nibba, true to internet culture, to be ironic, for shock value, or to troll people online.
