People are free to say whatever they want. However, I'd rather see that word relegated to the scrap heap of history. Using it keeps it alive. I'm well aware that black people use it in a different context but as long as it is still around, it will be used negatively by many.4

Meh. It's a word.
I don't like the word, I don't use it. I don't see that it's my place to police anyone elses patterns of speach.
If some black people want to 'claim' the word and use it to their own ends, more power to them. As long as they accept that by normalising the word they are allowing other people to use the word. That's how not being racist works.0
