It's a perfectly good word.

"It had not been our way to build great fires; we were, indeed, by the captain's orders, somewhat niggardly of firewood, and I began to fear that something had gone wrong while I was absent."
Treasure Island by Stevenson, Robert Louis


"The evening was lovely, and our three friends enjoyed it in the cool shade of the mimosas, after a substantial repast, at which the tea and the punch were dealt out with no niggardly hand".
Five Weeks in a Balloon by Verne, Jules

All the black kids snickered while we all took inventory of our feet for a while. Funny how you remember that stuff, Anglo guilt being what it is.

Why is my font weird?
Because you're niggardly with electrons, foo'.

About a decade or so ago some politician in Washington DC local politics complained about niggardly spending by some local entity. You'd have thought he was caught emailing orgy plans with a Page the way folks reacted. Eventually one of the dim bulbs was handed a dictionary and the hue and cry subsided.

Truth or urban crackerism? You decide.

'Nitty-gritty' is currently the cause celebre of the PC brigade in the UK. Wankers.
