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.

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.
"Reach for the sky Honkey!" - Dave Chappelle

"Damn, that honkey be so white, I'd lose him in a blizzard. Crazy saltine." - Shamar Washington

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!
