    nah -- It just occurred to me that nobody uses the word, and that the greater part of our country are a bunch of illiterate substandard reetahds, and if you called them niggardly, they'd probably world star hip hop your ass.

    I'm confused as to why Cormac McCarthy would choose to use I.R. Hoskins nickname in No Country For Old Men.

    yeah, but in the book he uses the full word. Even in the history books they've shortened it to "Nig."
