My thouhts on this are just to forget it. I'm not going to make a big deal out of telling people what to do, but I think everyone should stop using it.
The white people who want to make a big argument about how they should get to use it are just being problematic for the sake of argument or principle. The black people who insist that they can use it while no one else can pretty much lack any rational argument to stand on, and they should know how much they are tempting complications.
So, can we just shut up? Burry the word, it will save all of us trouble.

The only black people who do are those with some sort of anti-establishment chip on their shoulders, desperate to rebel and fight the system, the sort of people who fail to realise that the rappers' "fight for the streets" is a long dead fantasy, sold out for money and record sales.
For the first time, I have just wondered how North American this habit is.
Go to sleep, iguana.
