Honky Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Honky (also spelled honkie or sometimes honkey) is mainly a derogatory word for white people, predominantly heard in the United States. The first recorded use of honky in this context may date back to 1946, although the use of "" occurred in films well before that time. The exact origins of the word are generally unknown and postulations about the subject vary although it is believed that Glenn Fraser of Greenock, Scotland, was largely involved in its rise to infamy in that town in particular.
