    No. And I would "qualify" to be offended... if you know what I mean

    What do you mean you "qualify"?
    I now deem "qualify" with quotes as a racist term, because it excludes those that don't "qualify".
    Since i do "qualify" too. I can't sue you at this moment but do believe when i find some way to not "qualify" the court documents will be filed.

    The running rate for sexual harrassment is 10 million, racisism is a couple of commas less.

    PS Recently, a school teacher was fired for referring to her black students as 'ninjas' on facebook.
    isnt the app dev black though ?

    If you find this to be racist, file a report with Palm. If they get enough reports, they may pull the app.

    BUT: Keep in mind that nobody but the developer knows the original intent behind the name. It may very well have been unintentional (I certainly didn't know that it was a new slang slur until today), as the developer may not have known that it was a new slang slur.

    Which brings me to the next point: Who comes up with these odd slang slurs?

    Getting sick tired of people trying to attach racist theme to something...for example when Resident Evil 5 was launched which was virus infested area in Africa which turned the locals into machete wielding zombies .....before the game was out some ahole was screaming racist ***. Im not white, but this is getting ridiculous....if "Ninja please" is racist so is "afro samurai" whats next?

    it's just as offensive, or inofensive as the N word. I mean the actual phrase 'The N word', the point is to say a less offensive word to get you to think of the offensive one. Like saying frak.

    apparently any word coupled with "please" becomes offensive.

    My kids are no longer allowed to say Momma please pass the salad. or Daddy please read me a story. Or could I please have the dressing on the side?

    I think I'm getting the hang of this logic.

    IMO "*****h please" is part of popular culture. It's a phrase with a particular meaning that has nothing to do with race accept that it has a racial slur in it and is there for only usable by members of that race. Ninja please allows me to use the expression affectively and appropriately without using the slur. If anything I thinks its very sensitive to sue ninja please.

    Plus I've been studying ninpo taijutsu for almost 3 years now so I'll drop that N bomb all I damn well want.
