Lawn jockeys that were used to tie up horses are porch monkeys. Since back in the old days, plantation owners had Black people stable the horses or tie them up. Hence, most of these lawn jockey's face were painted black.

A term exploited in a Kevin Smith movie. Currently being defined by morons who saw the movie and now think their the only ones who know it.
Example: A porch monkey is a word used to describe an African American or person of high pigment descent who sits on their porch and.. ah heck I don't know what it means but I saw this movie, it kicks ass.

A derogatory term used to describe unemployed Portuguese individuals. Recently adapted to include individuals of many ethnicities, although favoured to refer to Afro-Americans due to the "Monkey" reference.
The original reference was to infer that these individuals would hang around areas, swinging aimlessly like a monkey.
