This is encouraging - this website, President Please, has as it's mission the abolishment of the word "nigger" (that's the last I'll spell it out) with the word "President":

President Please is a non-profit organization dedicated  to the abolition of "the N-Word" and it’s replacement with the word "President".

We’ve been deeply inspired by Barack Obama, whose led the entire country down a new road to freedom and self-empowerment.  Since we finally have an African American in the Oval Office, there is no better time for the black community to embrace a new optimism.  We hope that this website will inspire hope, change, and a renewed positive attitude which we can carry into the future.  Our dream is that every child born after January 20, 2009 won’t ever hear the N-Word.

Who’s with us?  Where my Presidents at?

Here is a NY-1 news story parody the site put togther. It's so well made I thought it was real. I particularly find the exchange at the end when the white reporter asks if he's allowed to use the term "President". Watch it all the way through:

Here is a parody ad that dubs "President" for the N-word. It's funny on both levels:

An admirable effort, even if the use of "President" seems awkward. (Though of course preferable to the alternative.)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
