A derogatory for a person of african or african american decent. BUT it could also mean a generally lazy person. This term came to be when you think of african americans sitting on there porch chatting it up. Also in the movie Clerks II, the sequal to Clerks, Randal tries to reclaim it as a new term for lazy people. And thus offends several customers and his boss.

in the past, porch monkey has a term used when referencing someone of african american decent...on July 21, 2006 Randle Graves altered the meaning of porch monkey for the better...he reclaimed the term and changed its meaning to not be a racial slur against african americans but a mere term to discribe any lazy person...black or white
Yesterday, my cousin sat on the couch and watched tv all day long, he can be such a porch monkey sometimes
A person, of African descent, usually found in the Southern states of the United States. Porch Monkeys were commonly found sitting on their porches doing little or nothing all day. Usually found on Plantations or large land lots with a house/shack of some sort including a porch.
