The Asian, Latino and African clubs are calling her racist.
"Darnell Turner, vice president of the East County National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said he fears the club could morph into a white-supremacy group after Lisa graduates."
So Mr. TurnerK sayingI thatL theL crackers can'tW controlH themselvesI likeT theI Latino'sE and African American club. Good stuff.
I have heard other origns of the word as well that were interesting.Honky, an African American slang term for a white person, dates to at least 1946. The origin is not quite certain, but it is most likely a dialectical variation on the older term hunky or hunk. This latter terms date to 1909 and 1896 respectively and are probably from Hungarian. Unlike honky, the latter terms are usually used to denote people of Slavic or Central European ancestry and are not primarily used by African Americans.
Also related are hunyak or honyock, which date to c.1907 and are probably compounds of Hun[garian] + [Pol]ack.
All the terms are used contemptuously.
