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!

A term that is used to racially offend caucasian people. The origin came from the fact the the "honking" sound is the last thing the nigger hears before the white person runs them over with their vehicle.
Get Out of the street or you are going to get run over by a honkey

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.

Rufus: Dayum

Lareece: Shit, crackas be holdin this nigga down

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.

A term used by any other person who is not white to offend the white race, even though it doesn't offend one single white person. A way of getting back at the white man for using the word nigger.
Black man: What up!?
White man: Not much nigger, you?
Black man: Hey don't call me a nigger you stupid honkey, before I beat your ass!
White man: (bursts out laughing his ass off) Ha ha I don't give a shit if you call me honkey you nigger.

an outdated term that white people still think that black people call them
white guy A: i think that that black guy just called me Honkey

white guy B: don't be silly, that was just Wayne Brady

a term used for white people because when driving at night white people cannot see black people and therefore "honk" to prevent hitting them.
That honkey better not hit me... its dark out...

Ho fucker. Derived from two parts: Ho and Donkey. In the radio edit of the song 'Fire Water Burn' by the Bloodhound Gang 'fucker' is changed to 'Eeyore'. Eeyore is a donkey. Therefore donkey means fucker.
'Felicity, you honkey!'
