You are right especially because the context does bring the slur to mind. Like you said though it is usually not thought to be offensive in countries without large communities from Pakistan and India, so it’s very likely this was an unfortunate use.

"P-word" is the shortening of Pakistani that ramsej did? Weird...

I‘m not even offended by Kraut...

Btw, just how derogative would you categorize it? Is it worse than cunt?

It’s the equivalent to Nigger. Hasn’t been used here widely since the 80s and is only used by blatant racists these days. Dates back to when immigrants from Pakistan and India came to work on the factories after the war (when pretty much everyone was racist in some way). The word probably doesn’t sound like much on the face of it (just short for Pakistani) until you look into the background of it and how it has been used in the UK

I’m probably more offended by Kraut than most Germans tbh since it’s usually Brexiteers and those who glorify the world wars that use it :lol:

Yeah it’s a very British thing. I was aware that it’s considered a slur but tbh did not even realise when I read the post because it’s not one we think of much elsewhere in the world. I only knew it because I consume a lot of British media and spend a lot of time there.

The Swedes accepted that they are not only the most country with rapes but also the most idiotic... thanks to their policies during the pandemic

Fewer than 40 people have coronavirus after another day of no new cases
14 more people recovered from COVID-19 [source]

I doubt many that use it know that it’s German for a type of food, never mind what type of food. Personally I like German food. And I like fish and chips but don’t hold that against me :oops:

Some of us like a bit of taste to our food. Just that it’s all good from other countries. Indian, Chinese and Italian is very popular particularly among the non Brexit voting generations :P

Number of cases in the world increasing faster than ever before... Shit's hitting the poorest countries now... I fear the worst :(

This disease confuses me man.

Many of you probably saw the photos of all the crowds at Lake of the Ozarks here in the US. (If not, here: https://www.stltoday.com/lifestyles/hea ... 392.html#3 )

Well, somehow there was one positive test and in the weeks since...ZERO others have tested positive.

Similarly, in my town there is a big high rise apartment with a couple hundred residents. Honestly, it is in the low-income part of town, and I have been there a few times (used to do social work). It is extremely unclean and very tight quarters. Well, a month ago we had one person there test positive. They ordered tests for the entire complex, every single person....and again: not a single one came back positive.

Of course I'm no epidemiologist but I just can't figure out how this disease can seemingly be SO infectious in one locale while in others you'll have people crawling on top of each other and dancing together and sharing drinks and living in close proximity in unhygienic conditions while it spreads to nobody there. Just weird.
