You might also trust your audience to grasp that John Wilkes Booth uses the term because he is actually racist.

And also, the moment where he sings that word is a huge turning point in the song for the audience. It's very easy to be lured in by Booth as he laments very convincingly in his song about what has happened to the country - but the minute he utters that word, we're shocked back into reality.
