"Wiggers" is the term for "white niggers"--white people who want to live a black lifestyle. "Sand nigger" probably won't become "snigger" anytime soon, though. "White nigger"--one of those oxymorons like "military intelligence"--is not new. This is from the New-York American, Correspondence of R. M. T. H. from Wahsington, D. C., 22 February 1843, pg. 2, col. 3: Mr. Wood evidently adopts the favorite idea on the Globe, that the working men of the North, are mere slaves, without the name,--"white niggers" indeed. He knows the character of his constituents. "Mr. Wood" is New York Representative Fernando Wood. "The Globe" published from Washington--I haven't gone through it.
