I mean wasn't it always, who doesn't want to be white?

Now it just has two positive meanings.

Honk Honk.

It was more likely from the more prominent use, which was to be loud and boisterous. A cracker of jokes. It has always been attached to poor white people, so the inference that a whip from a slave owner, is only in your head

Yeah I was bitching at people who defended ray-cyst niggers and asked why I was a cracker. Some sideline guy showed up and said it was Whip Cracker which I kinda liked. Figured I would spread it. I don't really see your idea here. Poor white people are definitely not known for being loud and funny... Humble and hard working is more like it.

I’m not sure if that’s actually what it means but plenty of people believe it does. It’s such a stupid insult. My people so thoroughly dominated your people that we owned you as property and I’m the one who’s supposed to be insulted by that?

You know, I see a double standard some times when joking with my wife's African American boyfriend who gives us rides to Trump rallies. He says "white boy" this, "honky" that, as a term of endearment, I'm sure.

But I know for a fact he'd lose his temper if I ever said something like, "What's up my nigger"?

Really makes you think.

It's a matter of power. Niggers think using slurs and denying them to white people is a show of dominance. White people have to grovel for the black man's respect and that's the small bit of joy they can find in their miserable lives. Call them a nigger and you take that away from them.

I like to think he's just joking with me. He's a great guy. Plus, the N-word is really off putting and anti-PC, you know?

It always was. It seems like blacks would have figured it out by now. You ignore the shit and it goes away. You don't let anybody get to you. (((TV))) has done this to them.

I wasn't sure which way to spell it honestly, either one works for me. I don't know the etymology and, like you, I'm too lazy to look it up.

honky (n.) also honkey, derogatory word for "white person," by 1967, African-American vernacular, of unknown origin, perhaps from late 19c. hunky "East-Central European immigrant," which probably is a colloquial shortening of Hungarian (compare hunk (n.2)). Honky in the sense of "factory hand" is attested by 1946 in blues slang.

hunk (n.2)

disparaging U.S. slang term for "immigrant laborer from central or Eastern Europe," 1896, probably ultimately a shortening of Hungarian, though the name was applied as well to Lithuanians, Poles, South Slavs, etc.
