    Do you mind it when somebody calls you a 'Paki'?

    Dear Friends,

    This is a serious question i would like to ask, and would appreciate serious responses.

    I find that if a non-Pakistani calls a Pakistani a 'Paki', many of them take it as a racial attack and are offended. Although if they call one another 'Paki' it doesn't seem to matter. However, the Pakistani friends i used to hang out with, didn't mind me callimg them a 'Paki' at all, probably because we knew each other well enough.

    How would you react if someone called you a 'Paki'? Would you be insulted and react, or would you take it with a pinch of salt?

    Dear John,

    It all depends on the context does it not? I am always calling my Paki friends Pakis, but it is a throwaway term. If Norman Tebbit said it , it would come across different. I sometimes call white friends Honkies but it's done tongue in cheek so they just laugh. It's no big deal is it? Still, there might be some silly Pakis who would object. Not that I am saying NYAhmadi would...but he might. In no way should NYAhmadi be associated with the term silly Paki. I am just using his name as a possible example of someone who might object. Possibly.

              My right honorable friend Mr. Xtreme is Wrong yet another time!!!!

              Actually not. In England the word "Paki" has some negative connotation attached to it, but in other countries it is just a term to refer to Pakistanis. In England the term is used to describe all from the Indian Sub Continent, and is used in somewhat "racist context". When I lived in England, I heard it a lot.

              Personally, I am least disturbed by encountering racists or racism. I actually feel proud of myself that I am not one of those who judge people based upon their ethnicity. Such is the lowest kind of human behavior.

              A proud Paki (who acts silly once a while!!!!--- Mr. Xtreme, you can call me silly Paki, it wont be that far off from reality. Being silly is just part of growing up, you silly boy).

                It is da smae problem as, when a African American person calls anoher African American a Niggor o no one seems to mind but if a person of anotehr race does, it beomes this whole controversial issue.

                this is how i see it when someone of another race calls u a paki its sort of a stereo type, like "oh he's a paki" and then there are certain things attached to being a "paki". and people get offended by stereo types. But if a frnd calls u a paki u know for sure its not a stereo type and u dont really get offended>

                            I believe it depends on the context.
                            If my friendz call me a paki jokingly..I don't mind..but if someone else sayz it..I get angry.

                            Itz just like ppl calling chinese ppl chinks, tamil ppl tpz and philipino ppl flips.

                              John,

                              Word Paki is a racial word against people who migrated from Pakistan. It is just like saying "White ****" or "Nigger". I personally hate those racist words, which are mainly based on hatred, cast or creed. Under the skin we human being are the same. Is there any difference in color or structure of human body beneath the skin? Then why these racial words?

                              Sincerely,

                              FARID M
