ty Dr evil for corrrecting me

Adnan that was just an example which oviously you didn't seem to understand - i dont see how comparing differences is breaking a rule?

the term 'paki' is usually considered as offensive when used by Non-Pakistanis :roll:

Currently asians are more discriminated however if you are talking about centuries back then jewish people have suffered the most discrimination

yeah black people are still racially discriminated till this living day

one of me mates was called a 'dumb paki' by some white lad few weeks back and ah asked her what did you do? :shock: and she replied saying 'was wrong with that?'

some people are fine with being called a 'paki' by a non pakistani
depends who you say it to

yeah and that refers to ma point 'depends who you say it to'
it doesnt really matter about whether he had 'paki' in his username or whatever....a black person can have a username as 'ni66a' etc thats acceptable but yet if a non-black person cald em 'ni66a' they could probably screw...
people react different ways so some may get offended and some wont :wink:

I think the main thing with the word "paki" isnt the fact that its an abbreviation of the word Pakistani but with the fact that some people decide to call the majority of Asian people "pakis" which is offensive to some people because you're generalising a racial group together to a specific country.

I think the situations like Afro-Caribbean people call eachother "nigg*rs" and its acceptable but when someone belonging to another race says it, they get accused of racism.

It's like in Rush Hour (2?) where Carter going into that shack place and says "Wassup Ma Nigga" to every1 but when Jackie Chan says it he gets his ass kicked?
