A word used to describe self-hating African Americans who sell out their race in order to achieve higher status or to get approval from Caucasians. The word is often used inappropriately by black Americans to other blacks who behave intelligently, or do not behave like stereotypical negroes. A typical house negro gets rich, and then finds a token white wife to put on his arm, and does not associate with blacks. The antonym of house is field.

Watch Ice Cube's True To The Game on YouTube to see some examples of house in this sense.
OJ Simpson is a house negro, as well as a murderer.

The word "house" preceded by forms of the verb "to get" or similar verbs, is a colloquial term referring to a type of applause that occurs during a musical performance, especially an exhibition of jazz music. The musicians work to build incredible intensity, or other various, clever emotional connections to their audience, and when overcome by feelings of joy and appreciation, members may immediately and briefly clap, whistle or shout, to show their feelings of appreciation to the musician or musicians performing on stage. This type of display is inappropriate in various other settings, such as performances of traditional classical music.
"The sax player is playing a swingin' solo, and I'm glad he's really getting house!"

"Benny Goodman's solo was amazing, and throughout the three minutes he got so much house."

"Performing Thad Jones' sax soli brought a lot of house tonight."
