n. vagabond, from Depression times when the droughts that led to the dust bowl caused people to abandon their worthless farms in Oklahoma and Texas and take to the road to seek jobs elsewhere.
"They packed up as much as they could salvage and became Oakies on their way to California."

The second to lowest possible social level for a white person. Second only to trailer trash. People who collects hub caps and hang them on their house or fence, tape their windows instead of replacing them, and have a large collection of random shit scattered in their yards, in a seemingly organized chaos. They are generally a bit more shifty and withdrawn.
Run and git that hub cap, son. We'll give it to that family up the crick. They's good people, just oakies.
