karen23 · 17/11/2005 12:41
I was reading a book to my mindees this morning and said "Can you see a boy on a bike?" my mindee(3) said "No he's a paki" I was so shocked and when he told me thats what his daddy had told him I really didn't know what to say.
I explained to him that I thought it wasn't a nice word to use and he just kept saying that it's what his daddy told him.
What's the right term to use is it black?
Sorry i sound so stupid (and if I've offended anyone) it's just with all this PC barmy stuff going on I want to make sure it's right and don't know who else to ask
