I understand why people see it as a problem.  In reality, the word only has as much power as we give it.
No. That's not the reality. The reality is that it was shouted at people for the colour of their skin, before they were tied to truck bumpers and dragged to death, doused in gasoline and burned alive, or beaten and hung from trees. The historical context of the word is very important and your argument here is an incredibly dismissive, "black people LET it bother them," as if there's actually any justifiable reason why it shouldn't.
