Prince Harry’s little ‘Paki’ friend

prince harry racist paki raghead

Prince Harry is facing an army inquiry over a video in which he makes racist comments about fellow soldiers. The scandalous remarks were captured on film taken by the prince himself.

The footage, obtained by News of the World were utterly condemned by politicians and some British Muslim spokesmen.

He was forced to apologize after he was shown referring to an Asian member of his platoon as “our little Paki friend” and telling another he looked like a “raghead“.

The video ends with the Prince answering the question, “Are your pubes ginger, too?” with, “Yes, they are.”

In the UK, the word “Paki” is an offensive racist remark for anyone of South Asian appearance. While “raghead” is a derogatory term for a person of Middle Eastern or North African decent. Turban=Rag

Murad Ahmed of TIMESONLINE explains further on why “Paki” is such an offensive word.

Some Asians call each other Paki, just as some black people call each other “nigger” – to reverse the exclusion that each term implies. “A white man’s nigger is my brother,” they are trying to say and, therefore, they are the only ones allowed to say it. Anyway, I still remain unconvinced that Asians have embraced the word Paki as a form of cultural pride. Five years ago a fashion designer created a clothing label called “PAK1”. It never caught on. Many thought that having the word emblazoned across their chest merely invited abuse or legitimised the word.
