A term for white people in general, not as derogatory as "ofay", or "honkey", but not complimentary either. The term first came into general use, and noticed by the society outside the African-American community, in the book by the late author James Baldwin, in his seminal book "Blues For Mister Charlie". Often abbreviated "Charlie".
"I've been trying to get a job downtown, but Mister Charlie won't give me a chance...he's locked-down tight".
