    I'm glad there's a thread about this, 'cause I've been in a similar predicament. Rest assured, Alzarakh, I think cursing's become a staple of YA by now. Although, I would tailor my response on racial slurs to the story in question (as others have suggested). You, being the author, would know best, but I'd say keep it until you know you want to drop it. If it's up in the air, I already think you have a reason to incorporate racial slurs, even if it's not quite clear yet.
