In my mind, industrial robot are still the most dangerous piece of hardware you'll ever work with, period.

I programmed welding robots for a few years in the 90's, and I agree. Close calls are common. I once got very close to breaking a coworker's arm with a robot, except that I released the deadman switch in time.

it seems to be largely the social norm that the word is OK to use if you're black, and offensive if you're not. That's a bullshit standard, and it bothers me. Either it's OK for everyone, or it's OK for no one.

It is really a matter of context. It would not make sense to call someone that word when they could not call you that same word too. If you are content to be called that word in a group, then it would be ok.
