Plural of darkie

English A black person. The term may cause offense. though Randall Kennedy's Nigger: The Strange Career of a Troublesome Word notes that some judges have considered 'darky' a 'term of endearment.' In South Africa, it can be considered offensive (depending on the context), but is commonly used among black people to refer to other black people in a non-derogatory way.
