n. a term that originated in Harlem, NY circa 1920's. White men would sometimes pass by a black woman and honk their horns at them. They would also park by the brothels and honk for a woman to come out. This led to black people referring to these white men as "honkies". Nowadays, most people don't know the original meaning of the word and use it as an insult against any European-American (white person).
"You best get lost honkey before we beat you down."
