Derogatory word for people of Caucasian (or white) descent.

Originated post-slavery era when white men started "seeing" black women on the other side of town, instead of getting out of their cars to meet the girl at the door, they'd stay in their cars and "HONK" meanwhile the family inside would hear and say to the girl "your Honkey's out there"

yet no white person ever known has been offended by any of these words.
family: yo "Honkey" be outside lacretia!

Lacretia: I heard 'em, I's goin!

Term used by African-Americans to describe people of European races. Is meant in a derogatory manner, although most white people will not be offended.

Often mistaken as a negative term for white people, (such as nigger for blacks) but it is not. When the white man came to get a slave in the old days, he would drive up in his truck and signal the slave owner by honking his horn, thus the slaves would call them 'honkey'.
White people are not offended by this term.
We gonna be busy today, here comes a honkey.

racist term for white people. Derived from when white men would drive to the black ghetto whore houses of the 1930's. Rather than leave the car to be serviced, the white men would honk and the women would go to the car and service the white man. Bringing the black men on the porch to eventually come up with the term.
"Hey Eda-May....you got another honkey out here!"

Honkey was a term made popular by the great George Jefferson in the 1970's. The term refers to someone of caucasian skin. It dates back to the early 1900's, when affluent white men would honk their car horns in urban areas to signal to prostitutes that they are ready and willing.
