Word Usage
 
Although the etymology of niggardly and niggard remains subject to debate, these words probably have a Scandinavian origin not associated historically with the origin of the offensive word Negro and its related offensive racist slurs. These are derived ultimately from Latin. Niggardly, then, is in no way a racial slur. However, the fact that the word sounds as if it might be one is reason to consider context very carefully before using it.

When your neck is red you must use spic and span to get the gook off.

Well, since you already know it, then it's obviously not directed at you!

There's a useless post right out of left field and (poorly) designed to upset the decorum of the site.

Well it's not useless to me. I was trying to respond to a "very" negative comment left in another thread towards me, and low and behold it became locked while I was typing my response. So I just thought I'd try to clear up someone's "misunderstanding" as to the definition of a word. So there!

Maybe I missed the thread, but I don’t recall that term being an issue.

Negro isn't an offensive term. That's like saying caucasian or occidental is offensive. Nigger, on the other hand...
