A racist term that is often applied to people of Pakistani or South Asian descent. Its origins are commonly traced back to about 30 years ago, when British hooligans used the term Paki-bashing to refer to the gang beating of ethnic minorities.

Today, it is commonly used by ethnocentric and insensitive white people who either:

a) cannot tolerate 3rd world immigration even though their forefathers colonized the shit out of Asia, Africa and the Americas;
b) want to make fun of immigrants who have left their homelands to seek a better living in the country that prospered from fucking up and stealing resources from said homelands;
c) are too stupid to realize that many immigrants do the menial jobs they themselves would hate to do;

Paki is also sometimes used by mistake as a short form of Pakistani. Even this is frowned upon though, as it is an indicator of a person's ignorance towards people of different cultures and nations. The most famous example of this "accidental" usage may be in a remark George W. Bush made in 2002 when asked about the nuclear rivalry between Pakistan and India.

Don't be fooled by the narrow-minded xenophobes who have attempted to explain this term - calling a brown person a Paki is just as derogatory as calling a black person a nigger.
"Go back to your country, Paki."

"Sorry pal, I don't think I'll be able to board a plane again thanks to your country's anti-terror laws. Looks like I'm here to stay. Shall we discuss William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens over tea and biscuits instead? That's what people do around here don't they?"

Despite what people say, it's really not a short version of Pakistani, like Brit.

Paki is a racist term used since the 60s to offend anyone south asian. It can be viewed to be as bad as the n-word, and you wouldn't use that, would you?
I'm Sri Lankan and if someone called me this word, I would find it so offensive, I'd probably cry. And I don't cry a lot.

Guys? Don't be racist. We're all humans, we're all the same on the inside, so focus your hate on the things that deserve it, like murder and child abuse.

NB: please don't do the "but if Pakistani people call each other "paki", why can't we say it?" It's not the same. Black guys call each other the n-word. Does that make it okay for other people to use it on them?
"So what if I called you a Paki, it's just a short version of Pakistani!"

Paki is the shortened term for Pakistani.

Calling a Paki a Paki can result in imprisonment and/or death.

They are widely distributed throughout the UK, and most parts of Europe, have around 6 children per swarm, walk around in their pajamas and live off the tax payer. Most refuse to learn English and own corner shops, when entering a Corner Shop note how they speak their own language... They are most likely talking about you.

They get away with almost everything for example:

Paki: ME no mean to work whilst on benefits, me no understand English rule.
Judge: Case dismissed.

It is important that you do not mistake an Indian for a Paki, as Indians find it offensive - Wouldn't you be offended if you was being called the same thing as these degenerate beings?

It is ILLEGAL for a working, tax paying British man who was born here to call someone a Paki, but is LEGAL, for a Paki to be racist towards a working, tax paying British man.
LOL, that Paki is still in his pajamas

1. A slang term to describe a Pakistani or one of Pakistani descent - used in an intentionally harmless manner **if** it's between non-Pakistanis or Pakistanis themselves.

2. In the UK at least, used to the person the word is a derogatory racist remark for anyone of South Asian appearance, even if they're say, Indian. Look at the description of Feltham for truth of how stupidly this word is used. Used by racist Neanderthal shitbags, many of whom frequent urbandictionary.com by the look of the utter drivel I've read in this section. It goes without saying they obviously need to go back to primary school. I know some need to integrate more into British culture, way of life etc. and there are a lot of dickheads, same as in any race/ethnic group but this is hardly going to encourage them. You get a lot of white people saying "When in Rome" etc but when you treat people like shit they will treat you like shit - go figure?

And the plan to deport those who were BORN here (OK if they were terror suspects but this includes everyone - even if they've never committed a crime in their life..) is a practical violation of human rights. Fortunately, to any people accessing this from outside the UK I'm glad to say people with the views above are in the minority.

Paki. A derogatory word now used to describe all brown people of South Asian and Middle Eastern descent.

Although short for Pakistanis its deemed so offensive because most people who are called Pakis aren't actually Pakis.

To be mistaken for a Paki is the ultimate insult. Every one fucking hates Pakis.

Making this mistake can seem an easy one to make but not really excusable.
Imagine if YOU were mistaken for a Paki!

• although born and bred in the same town as you they choose to speak paki with a unique Bradford twist. Think Prince Nazeem Hamed

•Successive inbreeding (63% of Pakis in Bradford are married to their First cousins) give them a distinctive 3rd world appearance and double digit IQs.

even though its mainly pissing down and fucking freezing. Pakis still sport flip-flops and a dish dash.

•Tax-exempt and unable to obtain actual jobs because that would involve integration. Pakis either drive taxi's, run hideously unhygienic curry shops or run underage sex rings. I think Mohammed's cool with that.
Oi PAKI!
