Agree. Any racial word should not be spelled out. Personally i wouldnt care if they spell it out but i know its not right to do so .

actually none of them r ok but I am outdated and old fashioned and todays society say any word however so I guess it's the in thing, besides for an argument to be really good u have to have at least 2 people arguing and lots of people have better things to do with their energy than argue over vocabulary.
