hmmm, let's see...

1.4 billion angry, screaming Chinksat your doorstep demanding their money back pronto!

We will point them northward so they can attack the racists.

Chink is NOT racist...it's like the term Yid, Kraut, or Wop, etc...

It's merely a "nickname" that refers to a specific ethnic group....not race.

There is ONLY "one" race on this planet.

The HUMAN race.

KEV

Ask a Chinese immigrant how they feel about the term.

Everyone in the USA seems to be offended by ethnic based humour.

This is not the case in the UK where I grew up

Benny Hill - Mr Chow Mein

Mimicking, and poking fun at ethnic stereotypes is probably the best British humour.

Here's another example:

The Two Ronnies - Insurance against becoming Jewish

Lighten up - will ya

Kev, here's a question for you. Would you use any of those terms in when you're not behind a computer screen? Would you call a Chinese person a 'chink'? Or an Italian, a 'wop'? Or a black male, a nig...?

Well that really is not the point, as Kev has pointed out this is stock standard British, Aussie, New Zealand humour, we have no sacred cows, nothing is sacrosanct. Politeness means that we may or may not use these terms face to face, but either way it is not about race per se. Incidently we have a collection of nigger boy money boxes on display that does not mean we hate black people, they are just examples of Americana we have collected over the years.

So, you're a closet racist.
