Opinions from black women needed

I am a teacher in grades 7-12.  I recently told a black male student to not use the N-word in class.  Another student said it was OK since he was black.  I told him I disagreed and that word is not school appropriate.  

Just wondering if I am to expect a lecture by this boy's mom or not.  I get that it's used w/ an "a" at the end and not "er" in their songs and slang.  But I personally don't like the word at all and think the ugly word should be buried like they did in a ceremony in Detroit a few years back. 

Please this is a genuine question and not meant to bash or start anything.  Thank you.

Depends on where the school is located and how educated the parents are. If you're in the hood this probably won't end well, not going to lie.

I'm black, I find it offensive and I have to continually tell my boys to not use it.  Honestly, if the kid's mother is older, she'll find it offensive.  If she's younger, she may not.
