With all due respect Zeff, you've compelled me to return to the forum in order to LOL.
(...) Paki (in my view) should be reclaimed for all of us and mean no more than an abbreviation for Pakistani as Brit is for British.
Quick question before we start - when's the last time you had to embarrass a grown white man for verbally abusing your ageing (still beautiful though, it ain't just black that don't crack) Paki mother, because she's a Paki?
My blood is half Paki so I'll say it all I want. You may only call me a Paki with my explicit permission.
Paki Paki Paki Paki Paki. Paki.
Anyhow, Paki can only be reclaimed by those who would be subject to the discrimination surrounding said term. It can never be claimed by the average Tom, Mesut, Richard, Christine, Marius, Juan, Elizabeth, Daniel or Errol.
Anything else is just a shitty embellishment of the zeitgeist.
Tl;dr: Go reclaim another word. Paki isn't up for allocation.
