A circumlocution used by those who feel uncomfortable saying the word, um, ``nigger'', but feel the need to refer to it (you know, the n word) for some reason.

One of those words (like ``faggot'') whose use by people within the community to which it refers is almost always acceptable, and whose use by people outside that community is almost always unacceptable.
