  1. All my years of living in the UK and I have never heard the derogatory slang, “slope” to describe an Asian: Paki, darkie and wog, but never slope. Seriously is this made up?

    A million pounds, if this was to take a moral stance against racism, why not just sue for a quid, to make a point?

    A slippery slope indeed!

  2. The term “slope” does not refer to Indians. It refers to Asians with slanted eyes and, more specifically, those Asians who the US fought during the Vietnam era. She’s just stupid.
