In segregated times honey refers to a white man going to a black neighborhood to pick up a black woman. He would not get put of the car so he would just honk the horn. So yes that is a very offense a word to any white male.
Hey shaniqua. That honkey outside wait in for your black ass.

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!"

An American derogatory slur for a white person, used mainly by black people in response to the infamous "nigger". Compare to "cracka".

Alternate spellings include "Honky" and "Honkie".
White guy: My tulips need more water. I have to keep them looking nice and fresh, you know.
