ofay的注释:

3. The commonly seen etymology of ofay —Pig Latin for foe —is perhaps of less interest than the more likely story of this word's origins. The word, which is first recorded in the first quarter of the 20th century, must have been in use much longer if it is, as some scholars think, borrowed from an African source. Although this source has not been pinned down, the suggested possibilities are in themselves interesting. One would trace it to the Ibibio word afia, “white or light-colored.” Another would have it come from Yoruba ofe, a word that was said in order to protect oneself from danger. The term was then transferred to white people, regarded as a danger to Black people throughout the wretched days of slavery and beyond.
ofay 一词的最常见的词形变化是 foe ,一种儿童黑话说法——可能更有趣的是关于这个词来源的故事: 在20世纪前二十五年里有次记载,如果按一些学者们所想,如果它是从非洲借过来的,它被使用的时间应更长一些。虽然这个说法还没有定下来,但它蕴含的可能性本身就很有趣。人们可能将它追溯到一个伊比比奥词afia ,意思是“白色或浅色”。 另还有人将它追溯到约鲁巴语ofe ,这个词是为了保持自己,避开危险的意思。 此后这个术语被移用于白人,这些白人在奴隶制及以前的悲惨日子里,被认为是对黑人们的危险
