    It was on my local news last night, that an Asian guy is in shit for a range of clothing he's just launched with the logo PAK1 emblazoned across the front. It's said the logo is offensive, especially to Pakistanis.
    Whilst I am vehemently opposed to racism in any way, I would like to see what you guys have to say about this.
    Sure, If it were a design by a white, middle-class guy, there would be a huge outcry, but as the designer is Asian himself, do you not think we are taking things a little too far?

    Do you think it would be OK for a black guy to bring out a range of clothing with "Nigger" written across it?

    Because for many years that term has been used as a method of abuse.

    The consumer never lies. Hopefully, people will realise that this guy is just courting controversy and simply not buy his moronic product.

    The word is PAKI, and it&#39;s been a term of abuse for decades. l guess his excuse will be that it&#39;s PAK 1 (one). But that&#39;s not how it reads.

    I&#39;m surprised it hasn&#39;t already been done.
    There seems to be a flagrant double standard applied to the use of that word.
    Dave Chapelle for instance, uses it constantly.
    It would seem to be a case of "It&#39;s okay for us to use it, but don&#39;t you dare..."
