Meh, I still am, 'cos it's an abbreviation, "Paki" to "Pakistan" is the same as "Scot" and "Scotland".

I don't see it as one really, think it's the same with most of us here.

Yeah,but Jock isn't directed at any race. AT least where I'm from Jock when used as an insult is someone who likes sports but is a big idiot.

It's a difficult one to call. They ALL are. A lot of it is in the beholder. I use terms like "Paki shop" innocently enough (A shop owned and staffed by persons of Pakistani origin), but wouldn't actually call a Paki a Paki, unless we were friends....PFFT YEAH LIKE I'D EVER BE FRIENDS WITH ONE OF "THEM"! ;-)

Point is, certain sections of people seem to take more offense at things than others. A Paki would more than likely be offended if you called him a Paki, no matter how innocent it was, but if a Scots person got called a Jock, chances are they wouldn't mind, unless they were a knuckle dragger that had those kinds of "problems", they unfortunately do exist here...:???:

I know since WWII The word "jap' is derogatory. I don't get into the terms too much as I never insulted people using racial slurs.

I don't get the double standard that its okay to use some slurs but not others. I see it as all or nothing.
