Science Fiction apocalypse post apocalypse evolution social issues

What does humanity do if the next sentient species evolves...and starts to out-compete us? A version of this story was published in Digital Science Fiction in 2011; however I disagreed with some of the edits. What I'm presenting here is the original, unedited version. It may be a little rough in places, but it holds more of my intent as the author. Content warning: There is a racial slur in this story. I believe it is used in a context which implies it is not an acceptable word.
