  • It came from white men hiring black prostitutes back in the 20s, I think, they would drive through and honk their horns. It's a derogatory word.

  • I was thinking it was some kind of racist term for white people so I found it interesting that a white guy would call a white person a honky??

  • Yes, it's supposed to be a derragitory term towards white people. Like cracker...I wouldn't pay any mind. The people that use terms like that are ignorant fools.

  • PaceMyself...thanks for the knowledge im going to tell my mom thats what it means...
    yeah because she only uses that word when being sarcastic.

    if he knows the meaning that PaceMyself stated then it would be more demeaning to you as a woman, since you and him are both white. maybe?

  • Okay so by pacemyselfs description one wouldn't be able to call a white female that then, right?
    What a dumb kid today, if he wants to say derogatory words like that he should at least get them straight.
    I just laughed at him..

  • My brother used to call me a honkey when I was young and I used to cry. I was the youngest of 5 and the only one with green eyes and blonde hair. I haven't heard that word in years and now I am pissed off at him all over again! lol

  • Honkey= racially derogotory term for white person, roughly equally offensive as the "N" word is to black people.
