I went to grade school in Louisianna always thought chink to be offensive, and was surprised when I moved to Pekin, IL to find their mascot to be a Dragon and they called themselves the Chinks. I later moved to CA where the word chink is definitely used offensively.
On the other hand, I have never heard anyone complain about the saying "chink in your armour" either.
