It means Pakistani
Pakistani people sometimes call themselves Pakis but if you if your not pakistani call them Pakis they tend to think of it as rude and offensive.

Depends whose says the word similar to the word nigger. if said by an anglo-saxon or any other non-asian race than its a derogatory racist term. If said by a Pakistani then it is an urban term of nationality. Sometimes said to be just a short term for Pakistani. But again depends who says the term.
Pakistanis and other South-asians suffered a lot of racist abuse during the early years of immigration into Britain the term used by Nazi Scum who support (the BNP and National Front) in Britain was Pakis. The first generation accepted it as they were not very much in touch with society's views about them, they were here to live in peace and work their arses off for their children and families back home. But after that generation there is no more acceptance of this racism, by Pakistanis or by the general good British public. As was seen in the Bradford, Burnley and Oldham riots in 2001.

The short version for the term 'pakistani'. Before anybody says anything, it is NOT a racist term, as calling a pakistani a paki is no different to calling someone from Britain a Brit.
no hes not an indian, hes a paki.

A derogatory word used by the white lower classes within the british community, usually to describe anyone of a darker complection than themselves.

'Paki' is a word mostly used out of jealousy because someone of a pakistani origin may have a better life, house, car, job and more money.
John: "Hey Garry, check that asian guys new car out, its a F**kin Range Rover!".
Garry: "I know them dirty F**kin pakis takin r jobs and r benefits!"

Paki actually means 'pure' and 'clean' in Urdu the country's main spoken language. Pakistan translates to the word 'Pureland'. Obviously racists don't realise this and somewhere down the line they have assumed it is them who have created the word/term during the so called 'paki bashing' period in the 80's when 1st generation south asians in the UK were targeted for racial abuse.
Native Pakistani people actually don't take offense to the word as explained above and also to the fact that similary it's like calling someone a Brit, Scot, Aussie, Yank, etc.., although some don't think it's a PC concept to do so.

You see the word is not the problem, it's the use of it, from whom and in which context.

What I will add is that I have noticed UK Asians of Pakistani origin calling each other 'paki' in a respectable 'brotherhood' manner. Like rappers use 'nigger' to each other (although that word runs deep into things best forgotten).

Racists both White and Black have had a backfire when trying to be racist to 2nd/3rd generation pakistani/bangladeshi/kashmiri origin asians, they've felt the wrath to the extent police on a national riot scale have to intervene to help them! I'm talking Oldham, Bradford, Lozzells (Birmingham) and others unmentioned where the perpetraters have had the media limelight to show paki/bangla/kash asians in bad light.

Calling someone a 'paki' on the street now is a laughable offence where I think the sting of the word has weened out. Other than that if you want to attract attention as a racist towards pak/bang/kash asians just go up to them and tell them your view and I'm sure they can find a bed for you in the nearest hospital.
paki = people assume kill intelligence

Term of endearment used between fellow Pakistanis in the same way nigga is used by blacks. Not to be used by whites.
