      I think the "jak se mate" is "jak se mas".  I've seen it on bumper stickers :-)

      I was taught by my immigrant parents, one Czech and one Polish, that Bohunk was a disrespectal term as was Polak and Spic.  I was never allowed to use these terms. I prefer this greeting: vi tam vas, jak se mate.  It means: I greet you and how are you.  I don't remember how to spell in Czech.so the spelling may be off.
