I knew it had at least a second, outdated by 200+ years, meaning but nobody in their right unracist mind would ever, ever ever ever use that word. It sounds exactly the same. I mean it's actually humorously close, like in Horrible Bosses 2 when they name their website "Nick Kurt Dale dot com". "Niggards" is even worse. If you use that in public good luck. Maybe look up some synonyms there Mr. Vocab.
