rather outdated Black English for "foe," origin unknown. See page 26 of the 1971 Bantam edition of Ann Fairbairn's novel Five Smooth Stones, where one of the African American characters, Geneva, defines it as meaning "foe" but gives no hint of etymology. I'd be tempted to go with the African origin.

A word of unspecified West African origin that refers to "white" people. It's commonly used in the American South but has fallen out of favor as "White Devil" has assumed prominence.

Still a mystery as to the origin of the word. It almost certainly isn't Gullah of West African. It almost certainly isn't from "foe" in Pig Latin as that form of "Pig Latin" didn't really start until 1920 and "ofay" was around from at least the 1890s. It usually wasn't used in a derogatory way about whites, but rather just as a matter of fact expression. Quite often used in early Black newspapers in columns written about theatrical performers and that the "ofay" owned the theater in which the Black performers, er uh, performed.
It is really the most beautiful city of its kind in the South. It has all modern conveniences, electrical effects, etc, is situated near the harbor and the audiences are all ofays, principally foreigners.
