Disagree. I just heard it used yesterday. It's a fairly common word. You NOT 
hearing it is not as important if others are hearing it. Granted, I think 
it's far too late to change the name for lots of reasons, but let's not try 
and talk ourselves into believing that it was a good name choice or that it 
doesn't have serious derogatory context to most English-speakers who 
graduated from the fifth grade.
