    "Slope"? Never heard that, "slant" sure, but not "slope", is that a British or Australian thing?

    Australians got all worked up over Gok Wan's 'Bangers' commercial too, so I think they're just touchy

    Yes, thank you. How many of those have you actually heard used? Never heard "slope" or "Mr Moto" and haven't heard "coolie" outside of period shows.

    Maybe you know more racists than me.

    i never heard slope or mr moto used from people, but i have seen it used in books and films. most of those other words i have seen used, on here or in real life. my uncle fought in the pacific theater during ww2 and he had a lot of colorful things to say about asians.
