Reply to "derogation"

Thank you, David, for your opinion.

I know that Black Americans sometimes call themselves  "N****" or "N*****".

I also know a girl who was sometimes called by the term generally considered derogatory, but she was dearly loved and respected by the people in that community.  When she had to leave the community, her host family held a surprise farewell party and many people came to say "good by". They cried and she cried and the fond memory stayed with them forever. So it's not, as you say,  a cut and dry answer, but it all depends on the situation and how the term is used.
