I agree with the post of Ms. Latina Lewis above. Let's avoid the use of racially or ethnically offensive epithets, even if the purpose is only to discuss their use in the abstract.

I do not regard such advice as a form of censorship, but as a form of respect for those whose life experiences have sensitized them to such words.
