This is pretty much my feeling on this as well. This is beyond a non-issue, and that word only has power because certain people choose to empower it. Unfortunately, I am not black and therefore have no power to change things.
I am curious though, why is there no other racial slur in the English language that has anywhere NEAR the controversy as that one? None, not a single one.
