Southern slang for a person who goes out in public with a scarf or rag tied around or over their head. Since the average person would fix their hair before going outdoors, the term would be used to denote laziness and unkempt appearance.
Donald is such a raghead; he won't even 'air' his braids.

Delores is a total raghead; I've never seen the girl's hair.

A racist term invented by insecure people who aren't smart enough to know why Arabs a wear head covering. In desert countries with sweltering heat, wearing a head covering to protect from sand storms makes sense. In the Arabian penisula the covering is called a Shumagg which is held by a band called an Ogal. This is the head dress which flows down from the head past the shoulders like what Yasser Arafat use to wear.

Covering one's head has it's roots in the Old Testament. It outlines the garments a priest must wear when conducting a service in the temple. It is the reason Jews wear the yarmulka and why women use to wear hats in church.
Can you believe I use to be so dumb that I called Arabs rag heads? Thankfully I went to University, obtained a well paying job, learned about Middle East history and now I am no longer an insecure racist.
