I actually don't see myself a moral person, but when I insult someone with an insult he uses for racist purposes, it doesn't make me racist, as long as I don't use it for a racist purpose myself. It's the purpose that makes him racist, not the usage.
I think it is also the message that South Park wanted to get across, but I accept that it is not something that everyone can accept.
On the other hand, I have my reservation of "leading by example" for this particular case, because of my observation on that member's posting history and style.
Nevertheless, your respectable approach should be encouraged.
