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!

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 term, used in place of "white man." Derives from the last thing a black or hispanic person hears before a white person runs them over. Instead of stopping, they just honk. Hence, they are a honkey.
1. Oh shit, honkey on the loose!
2. Man, damn honkeys near ran me over.

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.
