Well, there's the thing, right? In South Park, yes it's a thinly-veiled reference to racism - that's what South Park does; social commentary by fouled mouthed little kids that can be very funny. If you take this out of the context of South Park, and for anyone not 'in the know' it just looks like cheap racism, i.e. not a reference to racism, but actual racism. Even if that's not the intention. Some words you can't really afford to bandy around in a casual manner, and the N word is one of them.I guess one other point is that it would be easy to illustrate Imba without even bringing this whole topic up. So why shouldn't the author not just take a bit more care?
