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 racist term used by colored folks to degrade whites in the '60's and 70's.
As seen in Marine Park - Brooklyn, NY when 30 black students attacked 4 white girls shouting things like, "Martin Luther King", "Black Power" and "Cracker"

A racial slur for the dominant race of the white man. It's called honkey because thats the last thing the blacks here before we hit them with the car.
"I'm tired of these niggers calling me a honkey."

Derogatory slang for a person of caucasian appearance or decent.
Orriginated as the last thing many "coloured fella's" heard before being hit by a car driven by a "Honkey". As many of the "Coloured" were uneducated and inarticulate the term spread.
Anyone refering to a person as honkey is citing reference of ancestors with "skid marks" (from car tyres, disambiguation)
1: You honkey bitch!
2: *Beep Beep*

A slang word, meaning a white person. Back in the 1930's white men would go by all black hang outs.(all black resterauntes, movie theatures, ect) and beep his car horn at the black ladies as a way to get them to comes to their car. so they became honkeys. it is used a racial slur against white people but (white people) dont really care about that term or take it offensive.
non-white: yo honkeys.

whites: do these people think that this word bothers us. We could care less. why do black people got to make it a racial thing. slavary happened mostly in the south anyway a long time ago. us modern day white people did not have nothing to do with it.
