What Does Porch Monkey Mean?

Porch Monkey is a derogatory term used throughout the United States to refer to a person of lower economic means, typically someone who is African American. It is meant to give a negative connotation, suggesting that they are lazy, uneducated, and unintelligent, and that they are limited to hanging out on the porch of their home, thus “monkeying” around.

This is an offensive term and should not be used.
