I have listened a BBC podcast. A black woman told her story and she said "nigger". I was surprised! I thought it's offensive word. Therefore I never use it at all. Does the word "nigger" have another meaning or just black people can say it? I can give you the podcast.
Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

Please don't post the podcast - there is no need. The "N" word (as most of us have taken to calling it) is most definitely offensive when used by most people. However, it does appear to be acceptable when used by black people when talking to/about other black people. I have no idea if some black people still find it offensive even then. DO NOT USE IT!
