Nibba is a way of typing the notorious racial slur, nigga without triggering our black friends who may see it.
Nonetheless, this variant is also considered as offensive.
In most cases, the word is typed with the red block “B” emoji, a phenomenon often associated with the American street gang, Bloods.
