They should apologize, because "negging" and "negger" were both created by the guy who created the method. Because, you know, the best way to get a girl is to tell her how horrible she is. That's definitely the basis for a happy relationship.

It's slang, and not in the dictionary therefore not "legitimate" as you claim. It makes perfect sense for them to say they don't know it. I've never heard of it either. Some moron made up a word which is probably intentionally close to the N word, but it's far from being 'legit' or even widespread. If it was in the dictionary, any dictionary ( urban dictionary DOES NOT count ), then you can say it's a real, legitimate word.

No, the n-word is a racial slur that is still used by racists to this day to dehumanise black people. You would be surprised by how often people still use it in its racist context. It carries a history of racism where black people, regardless of what their character was, were called that to dehumanise them. MLK was called by that term. To deny its racial history is just plain silly.

I dont believe its a very common term in the US. but my Aussie and English friend talk about it all the time, maybe its more of a UK thing? I mean OP might not be a citizen.

People today are babied too much. Society encourages them to be offended by anything said to them. People need to calm down and realize that every time they don't get their way isn't someone being mean to them.

I suggest not saying that word in the future Op. Apparently it isn't a well known term and it sounds so close to the other word that it will probably be mistaken for it anytime you use it. Although you may not have deserved it this time, if you use it again you definitely deserve it.

I agree that people shouldn't walk soooo much on eggshells that they refer to the word "nigger" as "the N word" in contexts where you are just talking about the word itself and not actually using it the way it's intended, but yeah, using it to degrade someone is totally unacceptable and way beyond just being offensive.
