Hostile term for white people. According to Edward Ball in The Sweet Hell Inside (a history of a mixed-race Charleston SC family), pig Latin for "foe." Dates to at least early 19th century.

Pig Latin for "foe" might be right, but why not "au fait":

Definition: "being up to date in knowledge"

... an ironic reference to Ofays' access to education, etc

If one were to say "is that o-fay?" they'd be asking if that was understood. I'm fairly sure it's not spelt like that, though. Often used in a sarcastic, slight threatening way.
