Subject: Re: new word?
I have recently heard a word I presume to be Black English, though
reported by a white. Does anyone know the derivation/etymology
or even the meaning of the following : huji/hoojie? It is supposed
to refer to whites.
I hope this is an appropriate place to pose this question. I was told
that this word caused great offense when used, so it might be a future
non-pc word in the making! If this turns out to be a taboo usage, please
Mark Ingram, sorta politically confused anyhow

I have heard it as short for whojamathing (something like whatwhamacallit),
in the context to which you are referring. What is the context or sentence
in which it was used?
