Where does nibba come from?
Nibba emerged online in the 2010s. It was defined on Urban Dictionary in 2016 as a a version of the N-word (substituting Bs for Gs) that people, especially white people, use to avoid offending people.
honestly nibba is arguably worse because at least those kids have a little self awareness that they shouldn't be saying it (even online) but then still decide to push the line to look ~*cool and edgy*~

Nibba has been especially used by gamers, often notorious for aggressive and offensive language, so they wouldn’t get called out or banned on sites for racist behavior.

In 2017, nibba was incorporated into an offensive meme, variously called Big Nigga or Big Nibba, featuring images of obese Black men, especially the late rapper Corey Struggs.
These memes are sometimes considered dank or deep-fried, part of an internet culture that seeks to be shocking or weird, sometimes out of irony and other times out of hate. This culture also sometimes writes out nibba as ni🅱️🅱️a, with the B button emoji, 🅱️, incorporated into various absurdist or racist memes.
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.
