That reminds me of a funny story. I used to work directly for the CIO of a Telecommunications company in the early 00's. He was a black man with a quirky personality...kind of reminded me of Sammy Davis Jr. I had called him to inquire about why he had closed a requisition I'd posted earlier for a security engineering position for which he had previously approved. Not thinking a thing about race implications I jokingly referred to him as a re-negger. As in to someone who reneged on a deal not the infamous “N” word. Anyway, right as he started to ask, “What did you call me?” I realized how this must have sounded over the phone. He realized after my stuttering and stammering apology, that I meant no disrespect and thankfully has a great sense of humor about the whole thing. I received well deserved but good natured ribbing on the topic for many months following.
Considering the story in your link, to purposfully reference a racial slur on a bumper sticker is pretty backwards and stupid.

I do not debate to prove you are wrong, but rather to test that my convictions live up to your scrutiny. --me
