kish, didn't quite understand your question. there are plenty of bad words for Jewish people and I'm sure there are loads more for each subsect of people you mention.

Yep like

Blacks = Nigger ect..

I can't think of Jewish people ones maybe I should go on an Arabic website.

I was working out which you find offensive and which are not.

E.G Frogs is apparantly non offensive whereas Pakis is offensive?

I disagree with the above by the way

Jewish = Jew, Kike, Yid, Heebie, Curly Wurly, Auschwitz you could just make them up as you go along.

I think "frog" can be offensive but I know what you mean, it's more of an accepted form of racism - dunno why. If England were to play France in a football match it would be all "fuckin' frogs raaargh" but not so much if it were Pakistan. Is it an ethnicity thing? Like, is it worse to call someone a rag-head or a kraut or a spic or a Yank?
Funnmy how Spic and Wop are generally considered to be semi-offensive (i.e. if you heard someone say it you'd think of them as racists. If you call someone a Paki or a Nigger then that's definitely racist. But if you call someone a Frog or a Paddy then it's only considered vulgar and offensive, but not really racist (unless it's followed up with serious abuse.).

Calling us Scots skirt-wearers and jocks? We're either too ratted or smacked to care, right? Also, haven't we missed the under-rated 1980s tv-comedy staple "dago"? (Does that need capitalised?) Perhaps we should create an ill-advised dictionary of quote-unquote racist terminology. Then again, I can't see the nice people at OED publishing said work. Then again, I can't say I'd be offended by half the stuff on the original list. Consult your nearest Marcus Brigstocke for further details.
