A suspension or structural design to lower one end of the vehicle in relation to the other end.

That's layman's terms for the angle the steering stem/column or fork makes from a vertical line 90 degrees from the ground.
Layman's terms use:
I like the rake that car has. The front is an inch lower then the rear. Perfect on that car.

An example of using the more technical definition of the term:
The rake on that frame is 30 degrees.

A slang term for a person of African descent. Usually used in a derogatory manner, but can be used in casual conversation. Used to mask the subject of the conversation. Its use stems from a shortening of the name "Raekwon Jr" which seems to be a name a person of African descent would likely name a child of theirs.

a physical reaction to someone else obvious/absurd comment, phrase or action. The reaction traditionally consists of 2-4 fingers in a "rake like" motion and placed on the back of the neck. Depending on how serious the comment, phrase, or action will determine the severity of the rake, but will always follow with the loud pronunciation of the word(s), "THATS A RAKE!", or "RAKE!", either by the person giving the rake or anyone around to witness the rake.
