    Context, just because Paki can be used as a racial slur doesn't mean it was.

    That said, manouche is getting incredibly tiring.

    Not impressed by what?

    If the son of Charles can call a guy paki, I guess I can too.

    What do I have less than the son of Charles?

    As a Londoner I find your tone about London residents extremely arrogant and offensive, especially saying "Paki" which has long been a racist slur against Pakistanis.

    Not impressed in ths slightest! [​IMG]


    Where do I talk about London residents taking apart when I say that girls were skirts ?

    I am mad at myself for actually reading this stupid post. I guess I am just curious what the significance (spelling?) of telling the nationality of all the staff?

    Nope. I dont know any brown folk "myself included" who think that a random white dude has any context to use it.

    And the Prince cant get away with it without being called out. There is no way he can.

    What do you think? "Noti mpressed" is a figure of speech.

    I would hope you had some respect and deceny, unlike Harry, to not racially insult other people.

    the picture is great, especially.

    Ohhh, I have no expectations that I can stomp out racism. I ust think that you should call a spade a spade, and if you want to use racist terms be ready to be called out on it and not make excuses.
