well it must be in some way, not the actual word but how it is used and said
like paki, it means a person from pakistan, shortened down but it is still considered racist....

Many people will find it offensive, especially those who have much respect for Japanese history and stuff. It was a derogatory term used on Japanese people, innocent or not, back in WW2. It can be considered racist, like the word nigger.

I think it depends what you are trying to say with it.. It's just short for Japanese but it might be offensive because of the second world war. Otherwise it is respectful to address a country by its full name.

It was a racial slur americans used during the second world war to japanese.

I dont' really mind but it depends on how you use it. It's like calling nig*er to an African American.

Oh.. I never meant to use it in an offensive way, I usually say 'Jap Jap'.
.. but then again if someone called me an Aussie I wouldn't be offended.. So I don't see why they would be either?
