N-word on trial

Apparently it doesn't matter who uses the N-word, it's just wrong. Finally, that's been solved, no more double standard.
A federal jury has ruled that the “N word” is offensive no matter who says it.

A federal jury in New York found the use of the word in the workplace is never acceptable, even when used between black coworkers and even when it’s intended to denote “friendship or endearment.” To emphasize its point, the jury today awarded a woman $30,000 in punitive damages. That’s in addition to $250,000 the jury had already awarded in compensatory damages.
I'm sure the word will now be removed from everyone's vocabulary...
