Describes a person genuinely from Pakistan.
NOT necessarily a racist word - like "bastard", it can be used legitimately.
ie.
I'm from Scotland,
I am Scottish,
I am a proud Scot!

I'm from Pakistan,
I am Pakistani,
I am a proud Paki!

Unfortunately this word has also been used to racially slur almost anyone of Asian or Middle-Eastern origin & this use should be discouraged.
My best friend's a Paki.

Or alternatively:
I don't really like Paki's.

The bags from Paki shops always smell of curry - is that because it's all they eat and do they wear wads of poly bags as bibs while they have their curried breakfast, lunch & dinner? or do they make their bags from recycled curry containers? - It's a mystery and true!!!!

Derogatory term that's mainly used by complete fuckheads. They can't tell a Muslim from a Hindu so the term "paki" goes to both races. Someone needs to shoot those racist bastards.
My classmate (and he's black o_O): I got a Paki version for 50 Cent's "Candy Shop". "I'll take you to the candy shop. I'll let you lick the red spot"
Me:...you're an idiot....

the term 'paki' is racist except when pakistanis call themselves it between each other. the it is short for pakistanis. it can also mean the person is really cool.
a: OMGWTF that guy is amazing!
b: Yes he's a Paki!

A: I am from pakistan
B: Yay we are both Paki

a: Oi ya Paki
b: Fuck off or i'll bomb ya!

A dark-skinned person from Pakistan, India, or other parts of Southeast Asia. It is really odd that this word is considered derogatory, since "paki" means "pure" in the local language (Urdu).

There's even more to the story of the name of the country. It was invented by a political writer in 1934, using letters from five districts of what was then all part of British India. The "P" came from Punjab, the "A" from Afghania, the "K" from Kashmir, the "S" from Sindh, and the "tan" from Baluchistan. So a "paki" is not what most people think.

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.
