And "White" people can call each other "White" trash and Jews can call each other the Y word?

I know plenty of Indian people who refer to Pakistanis as "the P word". It's just they don't want to be associated with it. Like calling Irish Northern Irish.

Although 'p***s' is used to insult people from an Indian background, it can also be used as a slur by Indians to Pakistanis. So no. Also 'white trash' is racist towards black people because it implies that they are somehow below the rest of the white population, whereas 'black trash' doesn't exist as it is assumed that all black people are already below the white population.

It's really confusing to me, it's just a shorten way of saying Pakistianin.

People need to come to some sort of consensus really. I don't say any of those words but it's annoying to see people be berated for saying such words when others don't mind

As a Spurs fan with the football community heavily based around being Jewish, a lot of chants involve the "y word" - so yeah I guess they can

Gender is important with race as well as White women are possibly the most privileged people on the planet, so we must not forget that.

Haaha, Indians are not P*****. They're Indians. But yeah, It's just seems as though it's ghetto, full of themselves/inappropriate Black guys in the 'hood' who use that word tbh.

Hilarious. And irrelevant to this particular discussion.

I don't really care who uses what word. What matters is the context. Also can we just say the words without saying 'the p word' or 'the n word'. We're not 5 years old.

Pretty sure people no matter whether black or otherwise aren't allowed to say the "N word"

No they can't seeing as it's a racist term against Pakistani's.

There's a difference between ethnic minorities appropriating the racial slurs used against them and in doing so subverting their meanings, and members of other ethnic groups using those racial slurs.

Indians are not Pakistani, they are Indians. Why would they refer to themselves as "Pakis"?
