A black person who is said to "act white" because of the way they dress, talk, or act. Someone who does not play in to "acting black" and believes that there is no way to "act black". Someone who typically hangs out with whites, or gets along well with whites.

Sometimes blacks take being called an oreo as an offense, but others might take it as being called a "classy black", someone who did not grow up in the projects so has no particular reason to be someone they aren't in order to fit in well with the black community.
Caleb is such an oreo. He's always going up north to snowboard and lives up in rich country with the white folks.

"Black on the outside white on the inside."

A dark skinned person who displays characteristics of a white person. Oreo's are usually found listening to rock, and doing things that aren't usually classified as "black". They speak using proper grammar and think racism sucks. Most of them are proud of their heritage but choose not to act as stupid as some of their peers. They normally grew up in and environment that is predominately white.
"Omg look what Steffeny is wearing, what's with the skinny jeans and converse? She's such an oreo. "

A term that ignorant caucasion people call intelligent African Americans. Just because there are foolish African Americans out there, throwing their lives away doesn't mean that's what every African American does. Therefore, by calling an intelligent African American an oreo-( white on the inside, black on the outside) you are making yourself look ignorant. And saying that they aren't black, just because they aren't selling drugs between class periods, walking with that ghetto swagger, or making a fool out of themselves, doesn't mean that they aren't black. YOU are the one looking ignorant, YOU are the one looking foolish, and YOU are the one that's gonna get jumped.
Alyssa {african american}- wow. Yesterday I saw a shirt that said, " Nigger- don't you know it's called the WHITEhouse?" It made me so upset. It annoys me that people can be so racist towards African Americans.

Steph {caucasion}- Hahahaha shut up Alyssa. You're such an oreo.

Alyssa: Excuse me?

Steph: You're the whitest black person I've ever known!

{watch your back, Steph.}
