Is Paki an Offensive Term?

I play an online Football Manager Version namely Football manager Live and recently a player was generated with a first name of Pakie.

Some debate over if this term was offensive. Now this is my understanding so if you think I'm wrong just leave a comment so it can be discussed.

Here was the post that I made in the forums for Football Manager Live.

Actually I think the term Paki us most offensive to Indians. A bit like a common conversation you can have with a lot of Yanks :p

'Are you English?'

'No I'm from Wales'

'That is in England right?'

'FFS'

If you really want to wind someone up and meet someone from Sunderland, call them Geordie, they get awfully upset. :)

The N word is more offensive as it is used racially not nationally or regionally.
