Ashley Judd on "The View"

Last week, ABC's "The View" featured guest Ashley Judd. At the end of her spot, she happened to mention that there were several "Pakis" living in her vicinity.

I thought the term "Paki" was derogatory, and that "Pakistani" was correct. She clearly didn't mean it as an insult, but the usage surprised me.

That's what I get for living in such a PC age.

I've always thought it was a derogatory term, but maybe context means more than I thought:
