Honke, Honky or Honkie

Graffiti // Friday, 28 Mar 2014

Because we think it’s important to learn something while looking at quality graffiti we want to share with you the following definition described by Wikipedia. “Honky (also spelled honkie or sometimes honkey) is mainly a racial slur for white people, predominantly heard in the United States. The first recorded use of honkyin this context may date back to 1903, although the use of "Honky Tonk" occurred in films well before that time. The exact origins of the word are generally unknown and postulations about the subject vary.”
