    I know the dreaded "N" word was derived from a mispronunciation of the West African country "Niger".... I know the word "spic" is a derivative of the word 'Hispanic'..... "Nip" is a derivative of the Japanese word 'Nippon' ... "Chink" is a derivative of 'China' .... I even know that the word "Kike" comes from early 20th century illiterate Jewish immigrants entering Ellis Island refusing to sign their name with an "X" (because of its resemblance to the Christian cross), and instead signing their name with a circle ~ and the Yiddish word for circle is "Kikel" ~ ....... But there seems to be some debate as to origins of the word "Honky"

    .... Let's discuss these slang origins with maturity, respect, & decorum please.

    It started back when whites had cars and blacks didn't. Whites would honk at the blacks and yell racial slurs.

    Is this conjecture, or can you cite a reference that will verify this ??? Now is not the time for speculation, damnit
