A dark colored wood that can also be used as a reference to "black people." Originates from an African American bookstore in a southern state's mall called "Mahogany Books and Gifts." Due to the similarities in the skin tone of African Americans and mahogany wood, the expresion "mahogany" was derived. May also denote an excessive level of "black" ethnicity.

This may also be shortened to "mahog" or "mohog."

Both expressions are encouraged to be use plurally such as "mahoganies" or simply, "mohogs."

As an additional note, this is an excellent way for caucasions to speak directly about "black people" in the presence of said individuals without causing a confrontation.
"Damn there sure are a lot of mohogs in the mall today."

"Did you see those mohogs fight in the food court yesterday?"

"Shhhh there's a couple of mahoganies sitting over there."

"I wouldn't move into THAT neighborhood, its full of mohogs."

"She's a very mahogany type of woman."

Effie Trinket's favorite material that a table is made out of. It's much more important than Haymitch's comfort, and knives shall not make contact with it.

Only Hunger Game fans will understand the true meaning of the word.
"That is MAHOGANY!!!"

Used in the term of a name, a female who is loud, most people see her having a attitude, diva, but she is mostly pretty, people rarely don't like her, she's outgoing and stubborn.If you don't like a Mahogany then its her attitude. They are great friends, but when you make them mad they make your life a living hell. Most mahogany's are like the description above

Used to describe romance between two women, also used to mean girls that are friends but occasionally act like lesbians-comes from "purple" meaning a guy (blue) and a girl (red) therefore 2 reds make mahogany - can also be used as a verb: mahoganying
1) Jenna and Vivian were totally mahogany last night..are they lesbians?
2) Dude I totally saw two chicks mahoganying at the bar last night!
