Term used in prison for white inmates in prison, used by other minorities as a racist comment, eventually the term was adopted by white supremacist gangs in the prison system as a name for one of their gangs.

Term comes from wood pecker, because they normally have red hair, and whites are the only people who have red hair.

A good, but much-maligned, white person.

Peckerwoods do not hijack airplanes. They don't expect society to take care of them. They never demand socialist medicine. No peckerwood ever prances in a parade wearing a jock strap.

Peckerwoods mind their own business and are not a burden on society. Be nice to peckerwoods. Take a peckerwood to lunch this week!
Hey, any of you peckerwoods want to go to lunch this week?
